Welcome to my page

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

20170729_150135.jpgI am a 43 almost 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.

Over the last few years I have taken an interest in Quality Improvement and have started to look into transferring some of the methods I have learned into supporting improvements to some aspects of of my life.

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 14 & 1/2 stone. 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
