Welcome to Weight Loss Central!
My journey started in 2011 when my first daughter was born. Just like every anxious new mother, I wanted to give the very best to my child, so I started researching everything I could find about nutrition.
And boy did it leave me confused! Every single expert seemed to contradict every other one! It took a long time to learn how to “weed out” fact from fiction and find the fundamental principles that everyone agrees about. Meanwhile reading and learning about nutrition, lifestyle and health became my biggest passion.
By the time I had a second baby, my husband Chris desperately needed help – he had gained enough weight to now be classed as “obese”. And so we started a long journey to better health. Did we find a “magic trick” that turns fat into lean muscle without effort? Sorry to disappoint you, but… there is no magic pill! The good news is – I did learn a whole lot, and I’m ready to share my knowledge with everyone who needs it.
The most important lesson I’ve learnt is that a human being is a WHOLE. And one aspect of a person’s life affects all other aspects. I believe weight loss success depends on MUCH MORE than just diet and exercise. It is influenced by our relationships, emotional state, mental health, physical illnesses, hormones and so much more. And I will tell you all about it. And no, there isn’t one perfect diet suitable for everyone on the planet! That’s why I will be writing about all options available to you so YOU can make the best choice for yourself!
Is my husband now healthy and slim? – You ask. Well, he’s on a journey, making progress every day, just like many of you. And me? By supporting him in his efforts (and yes, I followed every diet he’s been on), I lost my pregnancy weight and found my motivation and techniques to develop life-long healthy habits. And you can do it too.
I hope you enjoy your visit to my blog and find the information useful. And let me know if you have any questions, I will do my best to help you find the answers you need!
Good luck and good health!
