Saturday July 26th 2014 173 lbs / 12st 5lbs / 78.5kgs. After putting in a decent effort with the diet over the last 5 days I’m pleased to see my weight is hovering around 172-173. The reality is that I’ve been home with the kids this week which means that I’ve been eating a little […]

Friday 25th July 2014: 172.2 lbs / 12 st 4 lbs / 78 kgs. No change from yesterday! I’ve been at home with my 4 young children for the last couple of days and it really brought it home to me how difficult it is not to turn to food as a stress release when […]

This is already shaping up to be a tough week. I’m finding increasingly difficult to make time for all the things I have to do routinely, let alone anything over and above that. As the stress increases so too do the cravings to eat outside of the agreements I’ve made. So far I’ve resisted, but […]
