Hi all - I have just signed up for lighter life - my initial consultation is on the 1st January !
i am a mum of 3 ranging from 14 to 9 years old, work full time as an accountant and have a lovely husband.
the weight crept up whilst the children were young and the usual work life balance was only two way- work or kids. There was never any time for myself.... At my heaviest I was 13 st 3 . In 2008 I did the Cambridge diet and lost 3 stone I do really well and I got my life back and was exercising regularly. We moved in early 2012 and to be honest I got complacent and my weight crept up slowly at first - but bang before I knew it I had put on a stone and a half. I also blame having a more a coil put in about 6 months ago - I really believe that this has contributed to my weight gain... So I am having it out on the 7 th and going to give lighter life a go!
I really want to do this once and really get over my battle of the the bulge - I love to exercise but struggle with the motivation- I am fine once I get there- it is just getting there!
so my first consultation in a few days - honestly I have no idea what I weigh as I have been quite carefree over Xmas so I am sure that I have put on a few pounds so I think that I am very close or over 12 stone at the moment. I would like to get to 9 stone so I need to lose about 3 stone.
Wish me luck
