Shifting the excess

I expect i am like many women. Two small children, full-time work, no time to myself. Over the years i have halfheartedly tried different diets, and spent money too!! I am feeling the excess, i can't believe i have let it get this far. This is crunch time.

After reading the book i know i can do this and this will suit my lifestyle.

This is my journey - the highs and lows of shifting the massive amount of excess weight i make myself carry every day.

I have been doing really well. However this week was hellish - working 14 hours a day. I fasted 3 times but was not prepared with my evening meals and probably went just over the 500. Then we get to the last fast on Friday. To start with i left my fitbit at home and it is the first one i have really felt hungry but i managed to 6pm and then had an evening appointment and had a couple of sandwiches there. I was supposed to be doing a workshop with the youth cafe but when i got there discovered it was cancelled. Everyone else at home was eating curry so i got tucked in and had some wine too! I did really enjoy it. Thought about doing another fast today but NO. Still lost 1lb so new fasting week on Monday and only 3lb to go to to have lost a stone so setting myself that goal next week :) It would be a great feeling to reach 1 stone mark :)
