Your age? 44

Where abouts do you live? Perth, WA

Are you single, married etc? Married 6.5 years

Do you work? Yep - Primary Teacher

How long you have been watching what you eat? Just over three years.

Whats your goal/s? To maintain a healthy weight for 12 months by the time I turn 45 (early April)

Whats your progress so far? Lost 87kg by March 2006... put a few on... but still a 'healthy' weight as far as I'm concerned, so 2 more months to reach my goal, as I lost that weight by my 44th birthday.

NB - of course, I plan on keeping the weight off, but my 'original' goal was to have maintained the healthy weight for 12 months, as I knew that losing it wasn't enough.

Losing weight has given me a "Freedom" that I had never previously experienced as an adult... and I am LOVING it!!!

160kg (2004)... 73kg (2006)... Working on maintaining.

Hi Jewles,

I'm at Joondalup Primary. We get a LOT of students from ECU. I LOVE having students. Are you doing your second year of a four year course, or are you doing the Grad Dip course? I have a feeling I only put in for 4th year students this year, but I am always happy to have Pre-Service teachers in the room.
