I've battled with my weight for most of my life. I am now 19st 7lb and absolutely fed up of it. I get tired easily and don't have a lot of energy. I'm a single parent, with 3 wonderful teenagers who are my world. I have a brilliant job working in local government which takes up most of my time. I separated from my husband just over 3 years ago and I threw myself into my work which has reaped rewards financially but left very little time for 'me'. I can't remember the last time I had a holiday and in a way I suppose I've consoled myself with food. Having considered joining the usual slimming clubs which I've done before with varying success, this time I decided to seek out some online resources. It's not like I don't know what I should be doing......it's trying to stop myself from doing what I shouldn't be doing that's the issue. Day 1 starts here!
