Hi! I'm Lindel and I live in Australia.

I'm really a thin person stuck inside a large persons body!!! I'm sick of being overweight and want to get fit and healthy again.

Growing up I was always fit and slender without ever having to really worry about what I ate, or my weight. But that said, when I think back, I ate more proportionally and healthy food back then, and exercised regulary. Its only been since I've had my children that I have put on weight, probably due to the fact that I put everyone elses needs before my own. But I'm over making excuses now, I realise its time to start putting myself first and pull together some willpower and make the changes necessary to lose all my unwanted weight.

Update: December 26th, 2011
I've been on Spark for one year now, and to be honest, my weight has not changed. What I have been doing however, is reading plenty of blogs for inspiration, reading articles for knowledge and corresponding with other members for motivation. It's taken me a year to analyse why I have put on weight, and why I'm not losing it. 2012 will be the year that I address my weight issue and put all of this knowledge to good use. I want to feel proud in my skin and show everyone that I OWN my body, and stop hiding behind my weight and frumpy clothes.
