Have been having very good days and haven't had anything that I would consider bad in the last 7 days since I started again which is incredible for me considering in the past 12 months getting past day 2 was a feat! Had to go for routine bl... Read more

A very good spark friend made me realise that each "funny" blog I wrote became more and more depressing in its own way. I thought I was being self deprecating. I was depressed. I am 50 years and 1 day today. 50 YEARS OLD! When I ... Read more

I am sure many of you are like who I was. You get to a point where you think "I can not stand this any longer, I HAVE to do something about this spare tire or 3". You get motivated, you start your diet, you work out and away you go. A... Read more

After a couple of attempts I started my juice fast 3 days ago. Whilst a few people have pooh poohed the idea once I explain that by drinking fruit and veg juice you are more easily absorbing micronutrients which are the primary way in which... Read more

I watched a documentary a few days with the title Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. Considering it seemed to be prophesizing my future I thought it was definitely worth a look. It was the story of an Australian guy in his 40's who had a chron... Read more

OK OK a slightly false start - it seems I needed one more week of wallowing before I was ready to get going. Went to the supermarket yesterday and bought lots of healthy foods and the fridge and pantry are stocked. I am facing this mor... Read more
