Hey Everyone

I'm Kelly. 45 year old English /Turkish. I am happily married with 2 great "kids".

Here's my story....
In 2014, I upped the profile of health and fitness in my life whilst working less (previously worked too much to prioritise myself) and generally getting a better work-life balance. I used 5:2 to lose weight. It suited me! 5:2 got me into eating more healthily. I reached my original target (68kg) in December 2014.

Throughout 2015 I went over to eating real foods only and continued to work out and educate.

In 2016 I plan to drop a few more kilos and aim to stay within a healthy weight range between 65kg and 68kg. I haven't been 65kg for over 10 years and it may be too low for me at this age ..... but I'll let you know when I get there!

I know this journey is continuous and wish everyone success with the little steps towards personal success.

Don't carry your mistakes around with you. Instead, place them under your feet and use them as stepping stones.

Anybody from the UK?
Thanks for the top tip, Riocaz.
Unfortunately, I am not in the UK but that will be on my shopping list for when I go back!

Hi MizzyH
I'm British Smile and totally emphathise with the 'cups issue' - in my house, we have many sized cups and I know which ones I'd like to measure some foods with but I'm sure they're not the regulatory ones that the recipes refer to.
I am also a fan of 5:2 although I am doing ADF at the moment as I have a mini goal that I want to get to for 6th May and things were going slowly for me on 5:2..... but will revert to 5:2 when I get closer to my goal.
I don't live in Blighty. I am also a Turkish citizen and live in Turkey but I consider myself 90% English. Would love to connect with you Smile

Zumba Challenge
Hi Fatpolice
An average is:
High impact zumba burns 110 calories per 10 minutes with a technique score of 85% plus. Medium impact zumba burns 100 calories per 10 minutes with a technique score of 85% plus.
I got these figures from Nintendo Wii's Zumba Core game.
