    Slimming World
    After the birth of my second daughter, I decided to put the weight loss on hold whilst I breastfed, stupidly thinking that those 500 extra calories a day would allow me to eat endless packets of biscuits, chocolate, crisps and a takeaway most nights. Looking back, I dread to think about how much crap food I inadvertantly fed my baby girl without even thinking about it. If I could go back, I'd defo change how I did things those 2 years ago.

    Also wish I'd of sold our house a year ago instead of trying (without much luck) now!

    Don't be scared to follow your dreams.
    Don't waste time trying to please people who can't ever be pleased, or 'fix' people who don't want to be fixed.
    Don't be fooled... chocolate is not the answer to your problems. It's not your friend, it's your enemy.

    If I could turn back time I would probably do two things..

    I would have fought for a relationship that I shouldn't have let go.
    Secondly I would never have put things off.... So many times I thought, yes I will do that tomorrow and of course tomorrow never came so have a lot of catching up to do now to refind those lost opportunities :)
