This is so true….especially when changing your lifestyle. That split second decision you make – that choice….Do I stuff my face or keep plodding on? … THAT is what makes the difference. I think it’s important to remember that what makes me feel good in that moment in time may be detrimental both […]
Have things finally changed for good? This week has seen many challenges that would have usually found me scurrying into a tube or 2 of Pringles but you know what? I resisted! I had my TOTM (ladies will understand, men can but try to work it out) and I really wanted to eat! I’m not […]
There’s a weird logic that sometimes stops me looking forward to exercising. As humans, I believe we learn from our past experiences and I know that psychology teachings would state that too – however no matter how many times I come out of an exercise class absolutely buzzing, I can’t seem to remind myself of […]
Ok! Have messed up a little today! However in a weird logic that seems positive thing. I am glad because YES I ate a Crunchie but I know i’ll get back on it! I KNOW this isn’t the end! Before a Crunchie would signify the beginning of some downward spiral into all foods beige – […]

It all began with this beautiful piece of equipment! I love love love my bike and seafront cycle rides get me screaming “Weeeeeeee!” at the top of my lungs.
Several people now, have suggested that I write a blog documenting my weight loss journey. True, it will keep me inspired! Here are some ramblings that I posted on Facebook earlier today: “3 months ago I was in a state where I was going through life in a never ending cycle of losing weight and […]
So here I am, a rather jolly, rotund fellow. The first picture of me was taken about 6 months ago at a friends birthday bash before I began my weight loss and fitness journey. The second was at a friends wedding in June just weeks before it all began. Infact I could say this was ‘THE’ […]
