I struggled with my weight once I passed 40 but I tried not to think about it. Then I had a health scare and found myself in an anaesthetic room being weighed, and I didn’t like what the scales showed me. I was mortified. I decided there and then that I would not hit fifty feeling fat and frumpy, I would lose the weight.
I found Alevere the easiest diet I have ever done, and I have tried them all, from slimming groups to food replacement diets. I ate regularly and I found all the food palatable so it was never difficult for me. I didn’t tell my son who is at university so when he came home for Mother’s Day it was a huge shock for him. Now I have so much more energy and I feel much more plausible in my job as a health visitor.
I have joined a gym and I’ve started running. I buy lots more clothes now, and I’m wearing styles I never wore before, but I spend less on them than I used to. When I was big I had to spend more to look good.
