My name is karyn, I am from New Zealand.
I live in the top of the South Island in a small community called Riwaka.
I intend to loose weight by making informed, healthy choices & excercise, I thought this would be a very good place to start. To have goals set, charts to follow, support from sp people, and most of all to make friends with people who have a similar interest and goals, as I do.

"Plant a Garden of Success"

Plant 5 rows of peas: Patience, Perseverance, Preparation, Perseverance and Positiveness.
Include 3 rows of squash:squash negativity, dieting and deprivation.
Add 5 rows of lettuce: /let us be positive, let us take responsibility, be in control, let us reward our accomplishments, let us be empowered!
No garden is complete without turnips: turn up with a positive attitude, turn up with a smile, new ideas, determination, turn up with success.

May your garden flourish!

My Goals:
I would like to tone up and loose approx 10kgs.
I would like to be smoke free by the end of 2008
I would like to be fitter and more healthier as a life goal.
I would like to write up weekly meal plans which i follow each week.

My Program:
I have started to tone up by using the airclimber for a minimum of 20 minutes each day.
I had my last cigarette on the 5th of October 2008 just before going to bed.
I am determined to loose some weight by eating good clean healthy fresh fruit and vegetables and lean cuts of meat, staying within my calorie range and exercising every day.
I will be an active team member in The Teal Troopers BLC14 and do my best to encourage my teamies along the way.

Personal Information:
I am from New Zealand and live in the South Island near the top.
I am a market gardener with my husband. We run our own small business. Hence my name Vegefarmer. We have a Chuahua called Yoda and a cat called Benji.

Other Information:
Since joining spark in 2008 I have made many really good friends, my long term goal is to go visit them in 2015 and to see some of the magic hystorical sites in the USA. I will need to be fit as there will be a lot of tramping on this trip.
