My name is Nynke and I come from the Netherlands. I am a classical soprano and a percussionist. I work as a free lance (opera and oratorio) singer, soprano-soloist and orchestral timpanist in various ensembles and orchestras in The Netherlands.

I began my weight loss programme in 2004, when I became a vegetarian. In 2005 I left out all sugars to leave the addiction I had to sugar. Then in october 2005 I weighed only 73 kilogrammes. I lost 35 kilo's in approx. a year. I felt great at the time.

But then, I fell off the wagon for a while. It hasn't been easy to keep the kilo's off, so in 2008 I started again...weighing approx. 85 kilo's, too much to my taste.

I started Sparking on the 31st of july and I am now going strong. On my hometrainer I try to burn 300 calories every day. And I try to eat as much raw food as I can!

A great thing is: I have my own vegetable garden and it is growing so fast I can't believe it! Eating lettuce and other fresh vegetables every day helps my weight reduction a lot, too!

My 4 cats are gardening with me. This site contains pictures of my cats, my garden and my greenhouse.

    Hi Nynke,

    I've noticed we often take part in the same boards. I'd bet we have many other things in common as well.

    I love your page and am awestruck by your marvelous success! Congratulations!

    I love this site! Thank goodness for SparkPeople!

    Wow. You have made amazing progress with your weight loss. I saw once performance of La Boheme with a HUGE Mimi, and it was ridiculous! So distracting. Pretty soon, you can be Mimi, and look the part!
