The only time you should look back over your shoulder is to see how far you have come.
Well done Patsy on changing the way you look, function and feel.
Patsy felt overweight. She had dieted many times since her early 20’s and used to get away with e
How to conquer the Lolly Aisle
The lolly aisle in the supermarket is the biggest temptation for some of us.
I've done it!
I'll bet you have done it!
I'll bet we have ALL done it!
We have good intentions of sticking to our strict diet; that is until we go shopping and have to walk past the lolly aisle.
Boom! Our favourite treat is on special so we HAVE to buy it!
Make sure you make a good Muffin Top!
Great teamwork ensured our muffins were fast, delicious and nutritious.

I'll start again on Monday!
You know that feeling you get when you had all good intentions of starting that diet on Monday and by morning tea you have already blown it? The angel on one shoulder is saying, “Eat that apple and have a cup of herbal tea”. Meanwhile the devil on the other shoulder says, “God that lemon cheesecake looks amazing”.
