So here I am, I look pretty happy, don’t I? At my mums 50th. But all I wanted to do was hide. I have been overweight all my life.
As a young child, i was constantly bullied because of my weight so would comfort eat which meant I got bigger so I became a bigger target for bullying.
I was unwell when I started secondary school so I had to watch what I ate but the weight crept back on after I came out of the hospital.
The final straw was being with my boyfriend knowing that I have Polycystic ovary syndrome that I may not be able to have children (which is what I have always wanted). Or possibly having children but them going through what I have been through.
So as of 2016 in February after years of yo-yo diets, I joined slimming world and so far throughout various health problems (including being on various pills that cause weight gain) I have lost 4 stone.
I am on a new plan along with slimming world called clean eating, no processed junk just pure whole food and whole grains, definitely nothing that I cannot pronounce! I have lots of new recipes coming!
I hope you guys follow my progress and get some form of meal ideas from my recipes!
Love, the brand new Emily x
