Welcome to my page

I thought it would be helpful to write a few words about who I am – so here goes.


I am a 44 year old woman, who lives in the north of Scotland with my husband, beloved dog (Evie) and children. My own two children (now adults) and two step children (well on their way to becoming adults…)

I was born and mostly raised in Manchester (England), but have lived in various locations in the North of Scotland for the past 23 years.

I have spent over 20 years working in the health and social care sector, the last 12 of these within public involvement field. Recently I have become a Slimming World Consultant so I am able to help other people achieve their dream weight and make positive changes to their lives. My group is on a Tuesday evenings 5.30pm & 7.30pm at the Beaufort Hotel, Inverness.

I have spent many years on different diets, eating and exercise regimes and fads – learning the hard way that there is no such thing as a weight loss or happiness magic wand…

This site is about sharing my experiences on my personal journey into losing, so far over 15 stone 7.5 lb. To basically help anyone who is or thinking about starting a similar journey.

Please feel free to have a look around at some of my posts

Much Love
