I am the frustrated currently 40 something who has over the past 3 years lost weight 3 times and put it back on again.
I am a single mum to a flown the nest 19 year old and I love food.
I haven’t always been overweight, and am actually a keen runner (although more of a jog and chat when the time permits than a let’s do that 10k kind of runner!)
I do have a 12 weekly injection called Depo Provera which apparently does not make you put on weight just increases your appetite.
And I have tried a couple of diets which whilst on them have been successful, the most recent being the Cambridge diet. The issue for me being the moment I stop following this diet I just put the weight back on.
I have many friends in the same situation, so decided to not look for a quick fix, but the best lifestyle changes which enable me to still eat the food I love.
This blog will track my attempts to lose weight and although I am tailoring it to women of my age, it could be useful for anyone stuck in the yoyo diet cycle!
