Hi from down under
 
Hi
I am Sandie from New Zealand. I am less than a week into the journey, but enjoying it so far.
I am about 40kg beyond a healthy place for my height, and don't want to continue on this upward weight journey, so in the immortal words of those from Middle Earth (my home region), Lord of the Rings, "You shall not pass!" From now on the trend is down!!

I work in a men's prison Drug and Alcohol Rehab and love my work. I have a 22 year old daughter, a 20 year old son, and a 17 year old daughter. I married at 17, first child at 20, and have been with my partner for 27 years all up. The 2 younger ones are still at home.

I love to sing and read, and study, still going on my Masters. I love painting both pictures and houses, and we are hoping to build a house soon, which is a first for us.

Well, hope you are all going well on your journeys,

Some words of encouragement in Maori
Kia Kaha!! It means stand strong and courageous.

Sandie
