In the words of my DH, if I’d lost a pound for every pound I’ve paid to a weight loss club ..... Like so many I join, pay the fees, lose the weight, get fed up, stop paying the fees, put the weight back on, plus some more. I’m now 47 and the heaviest I’ve ever been and I feel ugly and ashamed of the way I look. I’m also concerned for my health. I have it all, a loving husband and two beautiful daughters and a career I enjoy. I now need to take a permanent grip and start looking after myself otherwise I could risk it all.
