Just in case anyone else does read this, a bit of background.
I'm 32, married no children, working full-time in an opticians which I wouldn't call physically strenuous but I am on my feet quite a lot.
I have been overweight/obese for as long as I can remember but in denial for a lot of that time particularly during and after uni. In 2008 I joined Slimming World and was shocked to discover that although I thought I was 15stone, I was actually 16st 5lbs. Over a year I dropped to 13st 5lbs but then moved away and had to stop Slimming World as none in my new area.
Married 6 months later at approx 13st 8lbs and very chuffed to be in a size 16 not size 18 wedding dress.

I am no longer binging yay!!!!
I am no longer saying one little bit won't hurt!!!

I am saying no to it all!!!
Who is this woman that I see in the mirror WOW it's me!!!
I say say woohoo to the fast diet coming in to my life, I feel that my life is about to change forever.
My daughter left home the other day and I am now in the house on my own,I thought I would spend all the time stuffing my face, well I have proved to myself that my willpower is stronger than the need of food, exciting times ahead and I wish everybody else the same, it makes me feel confident, and that is a life changing moment in its self
Happy days x
