A little update if you didn’t already know from my other social media sites, I am now a fully accredited Cambridge Weight Plan Consultant. This is a challenge but yet extremelly exciting time for me while I get set up. I have already met a few clients and I feel that I fit into this role great but over time I’ll excel into this with ease. 

I have a training course tomorrow which is NLP – Neuro-linguistic Programming. It’s in Cardiff so it’s going to be a long day but I’m excited to see what I can learn to help me and my clients to overcome obstacles. 

I will update my YouTube channel soon, I know I have been a little preoccupied at the moment but I will start posting video soon. 




Are you feeling overwhelmed with trying to lose weight but finding it too hard? Well, stop! You’re not alone. Thinking that your the only one that finds it hard but others seem to lose weight around you but your head isn’t in the game?

It’s time to take stock and revalidate, what are your goals? what’s your main motivation?

We all lose focus from time to time and it’s about how we get back on plan quickly and not losing sight of our goals.

It’s very important to remember why you wanted to lose weight in the first place? Setting goals that are unachievable? or seem too far away?

Setting mini target/goals I think is important as these little stepping stones will keep your sight on your main target/goal. keeping the momentum going it’s vital.

Fun Times

Meeting up with Dabbie Evans and Rachel Campbell for a catch up and more insight into the Cambidge Weight Plan world. I am so very excited to be joining a team with so much passion to help loss weight, it’s not all about earning money it’s about helping people to achieve their weight loss goals. 

One thing I spoke about with Debbie was wishing I was my one consultant going back all them years…. Time lost.

So with that in mind, knowing I can help people that where in my boat only fills me with determination to help them succeed.

Bring on the life changing challenge.

October last year was when I started  a new part of my weight loss journey. I joined Cambridge Weight plan. Looking back now knowing it was only a short time ago. I’m so happy with the progress and results I have obtained. Its by far not the easiest to start and still takes a lots of determination/ will power.

I have added another 3 stone to my weight loss since joining Cambridge and I’m very happy about that.

My target weight is 13 stone and I’m now only 11lbs away from that target.

I am currently maintaining and edging towards my goal but I have decided to become a Cambridge Consultant myself. I have passed my interview stage and will be attending the training day on the 17th Aug then hopefully a couple of weeks later I should be a accredited. I’m super excited to become a consultant and to join a great team of people that have been on the same journey. With my extended knowledge over the last 16 years I really hope to help other achieve there own goals using Cambridge Weight Plan.

Wish me luck!

Long time since my last blog, with my operation and recovery all behind me now I feel a sense of achievement and one more life experience achieved. The operation itself was ok much better then I thought it would be. The staff at the BMI Hampshire clinic where amazing, no faults at all. 5 star care.

I managed to take off a stone and a half before my operation but added a few pounds back on.

This little recipe is amazing. Missing your Friday night curry? Well here is a dish that you will love.

The ingredients may seem a little strange but trust me the outcome is amazing.

Diced Onions (as many as you like)
Sliced Mushrooms (again, use as many as you like)
2 x Mushy Peas (tins)
1 x Baked Beans (tin)
2 x Chopped Tomato’s (tins)
1 Tablespoon Chili powder
1 Heaped Tablespoon of Curry powder

This is a slimming world recipe that I’d learned from other members and I tend to use it maybe twice a month if not more.

I have been told that it freezes well and tastes better but I’m yet to try this because it never lasts that long.


Weight in

Posted: September 1, 2014 in Weight Loss Journey Blog

Today was weight in and really didn’t expect to see a good resault due to a few meals out and having a week off from Weight in.

Well I think this is why eating real foods and leaning about whats right and whats not will alway stick with you even if your not expect it.

This week I lost 4 lbs and it was a real shock.

I find it hard still at this stage learning when my tummy is full.

Tonights meal was two small jacket potatoes with a tin of baked beans with lean ham chunks and 3 fried eggs all cooked low fat of course using fry-light as per my previous blog.

I was stuffed full and maybe a little too much,  however everything I had was syn (Slimming world value) free.

Today I also started using myfitnesspal (smartphone) app to help recognise how much I had taken in. I was surprised that I was only about 12 cal out from what they would recommend as a daily target so feel quite happy about that.

Big thumbs up today…. keeping inspired!!
