I was a binge addict of alcohol and junk food, suffered from stress, anxiety, high blood pressure and fibromyalgia. I found it extremely difficult to “Break the Cycle “ after trying every diet programme on the planet and so decided enough was enough.
I began to develop my own programme to a healthy life and “ Want for Change “ and by creating mind space to my addictions, I gave up alcohol and stopped eating junk food. I replaced it all with a plant based, none dairy diet, daily “fun” exercise and a meditation programme that gave me a “ Positive Attitude “ to life, work and the people around me.
As a result I lost 93 lbs in weight comfortably in under eleven months. That in its self eliminated those health issues from my former lifestyle.
Now, as I hit my 59th birthday, I believe I have a story worth telling. I hope my experiences can inspire others who find themselves trapped in that cycle of despair.
I will be transparent and tell you how I made simple changes in my life by replacing the bad choices, which have led me up ‘ Positive Street” to a healthier and subsequently happier life
All my life has been one of Yo Yo dieting, you know the type where you lose 7lbs very quickly then go and celebrate by ordering a Chinese, not to mention the bottle of wine!!!!
I would gain 2 stone over Christmas, lose half of it ready for the summer then by September I would panic diet again ready for that "Little Black Dress" they say you must wear by Christmas. Round and around I would go, constantly beating myself up but never seeing an end to it, believing this was the only option.
Unfortunately, bad health hit me hard in the form of breast cancer and after all the treatment was over and yes, I was back up to 3 stone overweight, the realisation that I had been given a second chance made me sit up and smell the roses, and not the chocolate kind!!!!
Working hard with my husband, we have had a fabulous journey to what we consider good and sustainable health. We've had a lot of laughs along the way but above all we have a sense of relief and gratitude that we are no longer scrambling around in the dark looking for that miracle cure which will save us.
I wish I had discovered and taken all of what I believe now on board years ago and if I can help just a few people realise their potential too, then bring it on!!
