So, on the 23rd April 2015 I bit the bullet and joined my local Slimming World group. It has been a long time coming as I really need to lose a lot of weight, about 7st should do it, nothing like a good challenge!!
I am 43 and when I married the love of my life, 21 years ago, I was just under 16 stone, fit, healthy and enjoying a very active lifestyle. I became a dad 2 years later and then it started, the downward spiral of convenience food, finishing off kids food, turkey twizzlers and the sudden lack of time for anything other than doing the best job in the world, being a Dad!
So I’ve finally took the plunge, this is it, time to get me back. Time to lose this weight, wear the clothes I want to wear, get back on the beach and get surfing!! Yes that’s my first goal. I go on holiday in August and plan to have lost enough weight to hit the surf, without sinking anything but the biggest of Stand Up paddle boards!!
So this is my blog, my weight loss journey. I am determined to do this and with the help of Slimming World and my passion for food & cooking, I plan to “eat myself thin” xx
