I have battled with my weight since I was 14-16 years old. During the winter months I was enjoying my food and didn't care much about extra weight as it was nicely hidden behind the layers of clothes. But come spring and I hate myself and my body and regret about all those deserts, sandwiches and snacks I have eaten.
During my pregnancy I decided that I need to keep fit for myself and my baby. I was walking on a treadmill every day, swimming once a week and every weekend went for a long walk in the park.
After I gave birth (nearly a year ago) I had the flattest belly I have had in ages!!
I liked to look at myself in the mirror, to hear compliments how great I look. It didn't last long, lack of spare time, constant hunger as I'm breastfeeding, and weekly Domino's meant that I have put on extra weight.
I don't like the way I look now, I hate clothes shopping as I don't like what I see in the mirror or can't find an item of clothing that will hide lumps and bumps or even look good on me!
But as summer is upon us and my 30th birthday is in 8 months, I am determined to lose weight, to keep fit, to feel myself again!
With a little help from Fast Diet Kitchen I am starting a 6 week 5:2 Diet plan:
On 31 may Fast Diet Kitchen is launching a 6 week on-line specialist Summer Ready campaign.
I will post weekly weight loss updates to keep track of my new journey as a way of supporting those who take part in the challenge. I hope the diet plan will work for me, fingers crossed!
