Losing the Kilos (or Pounds)
A glance in the mirror and this 70 year old decided 'I need to lose some weight'. How many of us have
said it. But it is not that easy. We say 'I want to stop smoking' but we can live without cigarettes;
we cannot live without food.
So what about food? Hey, I know all about food and what to eat and what not to eat. I was a Weight
Watchers leader for heaven's sake! Soooo cut out the junk food; (easy: I don't eat it) OK, cut out
the sugar, cakes and biscuits; (haven't got a sweet tooth, so rarely indulge). So don't buy processed
food (I buy very little and only as a standby). OK back to basics - I joined a Fat Club! Found a good
one. For me, having to stand on those scales, every Thursday, focuses the mind, plus the endless
encouragement and support, and to date I have lost 9.3 kilos (20.5lbs).
The scariest thing about losing weight at my age is you lose the fat but keep the skin! Takes a lot
longer to tighten everything up as you get older.
But Sophia's to the rescue! Ovie has given me some exercises to tighten up the 'batwings' and with
the other gym work I do, I am already starting to see a big difference to my shape.
The most important thing for me about losing weight is the obvious fact that 'if you do exercise and
watch what you eat', it works! I still have the odd Cornetto and occasional curry, but if I can do it,
so can you. Like stopping smoking - you really have to want to do it! But take your time. You don't
have to lose half a stone every week! And take all the support and encouragement you can get from
the gym, your Fat Club leader and, of course, your friends.
Now I can look in the mirror and say 'Looking good'!

Harmony Community Support Alfoquía
We are continually fund raising and this year sees our 3rd Annual Community Fair and Show on the

show and we are therefore looking for as much help as we can from individuals and businesses
within the local community. If you feel able to offer a donation whether a quality raffle prize or
alternatively cash to support our efforts we would be most grateful. If not then at least come and
join us on the day for a truly wonderful event in aid of a worthwhile cause!
