1. I’m a middle-aged (49) woman who wants to get off the wine o’clock treadmill, lose weight and stop feeling crap!

I am also a woman who is a wife, mother, step-mother and nurse.

I am taking back control of my life and my health. I do not want to be 50, fat, and an ongoing wino. I want to be sober and slimmer.

This is my personal blog to self-help. I will be posting my heart out, my struggles, my humour, my tears to anyone out there who wants to listen….If you are reading this and feel similarly, please climb on board or just encourage me along. I will be posting a weekly blog, so feel free to comment, would love to hear from anyone else out there trying to change a habit of a life time!

I believe I am not the only woman out there that feels this way.

If you do decide to comment at the bottom of my blog page, please note, you do not have to leave real name or even any name or email etc, just leave those sections blank.

Comments and replies can be found by clicking ‘continue reading’ under each blog just below on this intro page.

Best wishes
