I'm 56 years old, and living in a outer suburb of Perth, Western Australia. I am married, with 4 children, 3 of whom are adults. My youngest is 11.
My weight has crept up over the years, and it was only when I started recording what I actually ate each day that I could see why.
Recently, my trousers have started feeling tight on me, and I am determined not to have to buy the next size up. I'm hoping, with recording on this site, to be able to either gradually lose some kilos, or else at least to stay stable.
I would really prefer to be 85 kg, and this is at least more practical, although my ideal weight is closer to 65/70 kg. I'm aiming for 100, on this site, to start with, and hoping to change the goal to 85 at some time next year.

Soup makers
Does anyone have experience with soup makers? I am looking at buying one, to be able to make soups easily, but they are expensive. It looks as though the Tefal Soup & Co. might be quite good, but at around $300, it would have to be fantastic. I want one that is really easy to clean, because our single-bowl kitchen sink is pathetic.
