Life is beautiful-its a journey with ups and downs.Through the years I have struggled to maintain a healthy weight-I would loose weight and then gain it again, plus some.At my heaviest I was 110kg- 243pounds.I would like to be finally happy with myself,be healthy,be proud,be strong.This is the time to live the life I want to live. I have previously gone to weight 67kg -147pounds with a combination of exercise and healthy eating.Unfortunately I rushed the process of loosing weight and despite being transformed from the outside-the inside was still craving all the bad things.So when I got pregnant I let all the excuses to take over me and stopped working out completely and just let it all pile up. For the past 18 months I have yo-yoed between 90kg and 85kg but struggled to maintain exercise and food regime.At this point in my life I understand that losing weight is not the issue- leaving healthy and being active all your life is the real deal.I have a wonderful husband that is very active and I want us to be a healthy family.I want to see my daughter smile at me in 5 years and say yes this is my fit mommy! I want a bikini shot on a holiday-a real one, not just one in my dreams.I want to wear sleeveless T-shirts without shame and without covering myself with piles of clothes.I believe I am in the right place.All I need is the right support. Join me in my journey!

    Hi Maggi, Hope that headache has run it's course.
    I used to suffer from migraines, but as got older and hormones changed I seemed to have them less often. Been about 8 months since I had one. Of course there are still the normal. cluster, tension headaches that still hit, not pleasant for sure.
    Thanks for adding me as a friend, I added you back.
    Reading about you I figured you are British.
    Spent lots of time in London, have some good friends living in England.
    It's always one of the places I feel at home at.
    Take care,
    Be strong, stay positive.
