Changed my lifestyle and got a new life by loosing 46kg. (101 pound)in one year. I stopped eating sugar (candy, cakes and other sugar stuff), started to eat more fruits and vegetables, started to eat regular and watched my calories. I try to minimize the calories in the food product by choosing skim milk, healthy fat and watch the portion of the protein and carps.

The year 2007 I got pregnant and got fat again :) The pregnancy was very difficult for me emotionally and I did not have the strength to think about my diet and it went like it went hehe...

Now I am taking care of my diet, I finished the program 24th of July 2009 and I did my first 10K in the Reykjavík Marathon race 22th of August 2009 and a half marathon the 21th August 2010 :)

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in November 2010 and now I am fighting it. Have gone through two operation and in the second one my right breast was removed. I am going through chemo and perhaps radiation with finally anti estrogen pills for five years.

During this progress I am going to run and take care of my health, exercise and try to have a positive view on life. I will loose my hair and get sick every week for 20 weeks, *sigh*, but I CAN MAKE IT! My chemo starts of February 2011

I love it how the healthy lifestyle takes your life to another place. Your get a new life quality, happier family, more friends, positive attitude and most of all healthy feeling in your body.

The only thing you have to do is stand up from the couch and begin! That is what I did. My first run was a 45 sec run but one year later I managed to run 15 km. I also cycled 110 km in one day during the Cycle to Work days here in Iceland!!! Can YOU imagen what YOU could do!

My attitude now is thinking of me as a WINNER IN LIVE!

    We've lost a wonderful lady with a beautiful soul. I have never met a kinder, more up beat person. The way she lived her life is a great example for us all.

    Bless Sigrun.

    I had wondered for a while how things were for you. I did a search and found your web page. I discovered you passed away in April 2014. It took a while to translate the words, but I think it was your sister that added the information about your memorial service and there were many wonderful comments about you and how inspiring you have been to so many. I'm adding this comment for those on SP that had followed you through your journey. I'm sure like I am, they too are saddened at your passing. Thank you for the time you shared with me, you were inspiring, interesting, and I enjoyed getting to know more about you and about Iceland. I know at least you are no longer suffering. I've said some prayers for your husband, and children. I'm sure they miss you. God Bless.
