2014 started badly. Now I’m picking up the pieces to get back to where I was. I’m pushing my boundaries along the way and challenging my beliefs. I might be 32 but this is my beginning.

I can’t promise you this will be full of hope and inspiring stories but what it will be is honest, realistic and (hopefully) informative.

January – My relationship of 11 years ended. I was forced to relocate and lost my job.
February – I had lost 2 stone since December. Made a very good friend. Entered therapy.
March – I had lost 4 stone since December. Gained and lost a job 😦
April – I got a job! I’ve kept this one!
May – I confronted my Mother over her abuse of me as a child. I turned 32 years old.
June – I have now lost 6 stone and 10 pounds!
July –

Below are a selection of photos of me:
