Changing Allegience

Whilst the weight loss challenge had lost its edge, I found within it a new and equally rewarding challenge which should have a knock on effect.

Reblog: The Secret Lives Of Slim People

Guess what, there is no secret! It still comes back to the basics - burn more than you eat. There's no science here. Your lifestyle and your eating habits are largely to blame. I know that if I ate like either of these ladies I'd be as big as a house in no time, but... Continue Reading →
