My HEALTHY weight loss mission.

Firstly, thank you to all those people who are being really very well meaning with their comments: “you’re perfect just as you are”, and “your weight doesn’t matter, it’s about how you feel in yourself”. These are very sweet things to say, and I know I’ve said them to people in the past. However, if I’m brutally honest, I’m not sure that they are terribly helpful things to say. When caring for people (including myself), I rate health and happiness high up on the priority ladder. And, being the right weight very much feeds into one’s physical health. When I’m physically well, I find I’m mentally well.

When I went for my 5 yearly health check a few weeks ago now, I was told in no uncertain terms that I was OVERWEIGHT.
