About Me

I am a 50 year wife to A and mom to K as well as a daughter, sister, SIL, friend, accountant, reflexologist and massage therapist looking to lose weight and lead a healthy lifestyle.

This is me at my Mom's 75th birthday dinner

I grew up in Durban, South Africa and lived there until we emigrated to Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia in January 2000.  We are extemely happy here and my only regret is not moving sooner - having said that I am not sure that I was in the right head space to move any sooner than we did.  I am extremely close to my parents and leaving them was the hardest thing I have ever had to do.

A is a qualified communications radiotrician technician but now works in the mobile industry field building mobile networks / sites.  He is currently working on the Telstra 4G network in the greater Queensland area interspersed with working on the latest Optus network.  He is my best friend and my rock and, while there are occasions when he can drive me nuts, when he is not at home, I feel like a part of me is missing.  We met in 1986 and were married in 1987 on a public  holiday in South Africa - that way we always got to celebrate our anniversary with each other and not having to work.  We weren't so lucky when we got to Australia - John Howard wasn't really interested in making a new public holiday just for us - really don't know why !!!!

K was born in May 1992.  She is one smart young lady who will go far in life.  She has drive and determination and courage aplenty - she definitely didn't get them from me !!!!  She completed her Diploma of Justice Studies and went to work as an au-pair in America where she met and married her husband.  They live about an hour north west of Chicago.  I miss her dreadfully but am so happy with the life that they have made for themselves.

I started blogging on 18 April 2005 at My Journey.  My family has been documented at Our Family and you can read all about our family holiday in Spain over here.

I have always found typing things and getting them off my chest such a help in trying to work out what I need to do - sometimes I post what I write and sometimes I just use it to resolve the situation and then delete it.

I hope that you enjoy this journey with me through the ups and downs of exercise and weight loss, healthy eating, menopause and all the associated cr*p that goes with it as well as the sometimes not so great choices I make along with anything else that comes up at the time that I sit down to blog !

If you pop by, I would love you to leave a comment so that I can swing by and read your blog.  If you don't have a blog, please feel free to leave a comment anyway so that I know that you have been to visit.

Take care - love, hugs and positive energy !
