Why I decided to go back on antidepressants

I’ve never really talked about mental health on here, but I thought it might be time to talk about it. 1 in 4 people in the UK suffer from mental health problems each year, and as the title suggests I am one of those. My journey starts back in 2014 when the stress of losing…

Weight Loss Wednesday #10 – Changing my relationship with food

(Source) Week 10: Weight Loss: 1.5lb I haven’t done a post on weight loss in a while, purely because my diet had gone to pot of late through stress, exhaustion and general life problems which I will touch on in another post, so it didn’t seem worthwhile me documenting weekly how terrible I’d eaten and…

My Recipe Book Collection

It may seem one of the stranger posts I’ve done but it came to me with a flash of inspiration so go with me on this. As I’ve said before I enjoy cooking and I’m always perusing BBC Good Food, Weight Watchers or delving into my cookbooks to get meal ideas, so I thought I’d…

Weight Loss Wednesday #6- I can’t be bothered to cook

(Source) Week 6: Weight Loss: + 0.8lbs Total Weight Loss: 2.6lbs I mentioned in my last post that I deviate away from my diet at weekends a lot and sometimes in the week and I know that this is a large contributing factor in why I haven’t lost more. Of course special occasions happen and…

Weight Loss Wednesday #5 – Hitting and Missing Targets

(Source) Week 5: Weight Loss:- 0.8lbs Total Loss: 3.6lbs I cannot believe I’m now onto my fifth week of the diet. I honestly don’t feel like I’ve been doing it this long. It’s the week of the wedding (not mine!) and I’ve not hit my target of 6lbs loss but I’ve lost nearly 4lbs and…
