After years of yo-yo dieting I have decided enough is enough & I must get fitter & healthier & consequently lighter!!!!
I am a retired premature baby nursing sister & I have recently been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes & I need to prevent the myriad of complications that can arise from it.
My weight initially increased during several years in which I suffered long periods of depression due to work pressures, which fortunately are in the past now since I retired. They were very difficult times but I had a fantastic support from my husband Tim & our wonderful daughter Charlotte.
So now I am in a very positive frame of mind & am wanting to get slimmer for good.

    These things I warmly wish to you-
    Someone to love
    Some work to do
    A bit o' sun
    A bit o' cheer
    And a guardian angel always near.
