FAT

Written on 12th November. I had the most wonderful visit from my very dear friend this weekend. It wasn’t wonderful because it was full of really exciting activities or going out on the town or getting roaringly drunk (we did get through a fair amount of Prosecco that said). It was wonderful because mostly we…

I’m Back!

As you know, it’s been a while since I’ve posted. I always thought I was mostly writing this blog for me, kind of as a therapeutic tool, but a few people I didn’t even know followed my blog have asked me why I have stopped doing it. Maybe people can see themselves; their own issues…

Why I have stopped restricting what I eat 

For the past 20 years I have been fighting an unhealthy battle with food & my body. For pretty much as long as I can remember I have yo yo’d between dieting and binge eating. The reasons why I started doing this and why it continued are no longer relevant to me and now the…

Body positive plan

I have come up with a simple 6 point action plan to support my journey to a healthy body & mind & recovery from binge eating. I wanted to share this as I think it’s my most healthy & achievable plan, and I’m sure it’s the only way this thing is going to work for…

Intermittent fasting

For the last few weeks (I had a week off as I turned 30 this week) I have tried intermittent fasting as a weight loss tool. After reading a few articles and blogs on the subject I’m fairly convinced that fasting is a healthy weight loss option and thought I would give it a go….

Self Sabotage

Anyone undertaking an extreme weight loss journey or any other life changing event similar, is going to at some point struggle with self sabotage. Self sabotage and your fear of your potential, or the unknown is what stopped you from achieving what you wanted or made you over eat in the first place. There can…

A crappy week

This week has been a terrible week for me food, exercise and mood wise. I have had horrendous PMS and have eaten pizza, burger and drank wine (I don’t usually drink so this has left me feeling pretty crappy to be honest). I weighed myself this morning to see where things were at and I…

PMS & Weight loss

This post is really one for the ladies. Over the years I have been on lots of diets and watched lots of diet programmes where people are weighed weekly. One thing that always bugged me about this is that the trainers and producers of these shows/people who design these diets and weekly weigh programmes never…
