Everyone’s journey is different, whether you have a lot to lose or just a stone. Slim & Save asked if I would share my story with you all, and initially, I felt I wouldn’t as my journey was small compared to a lot of you guys out there. But then I thought, why not? It’s a small journey, but it’s still a journey!
I became very sick nearly four years ago with asthma. I got divorced and moved to a new house, where, after several tests, I became aware that I was allergic to mould spores. My new bungalow was damp, and I was getting sicker and sicker. I was on endless courses of steroids and unable to walk just from the bedroom to the kitchen as my chest was so bad. (It’s a bungalow!) The weight piled on, and although my health improved after some changes in the home, the weight did not shift, and I was just getting bigger.
So at the beginning of this year, after trying to ‘be good and failing, I thought, new year, new me! My sister had just finished a similar plan and had lost four stone, so I felt inspired.
