Hi all. I'm new on here. Have tried many dieting ideas in the past including Slimming World a few times, intermittent fasting, low carb diets - you name it I've tried it! Anyway, it seems that none of these are working for me and I need to plain old simple calorie count and exercise. Everyone knows this of course - so much harder to make it happen. I have two tiny children and find the will power not to finish their food and to find time for exercise hard. I also kid myself that I can get away with eating a whole lot more than I can. I am 38 and my metabolism has definitely slowed down post kids... Anyway, I very much want to be involved with this community and will be trying to follow the 12 week plan. Have a good Monday everyone. My plan starts now!
