Maria’s March Update – Where’s my holiday confidence gone?

I’ve been on holiday. It was a big holiday – we were celebrating our 10th Wedding anniversary, so we jetted off for 15 days in Hawaii. I had a fabulous time. I was full of holiday confidence and it felt great.  I ate what I liked, I drank what I liked and, strangest of all, not […]

Baywatch, Short Shorts & Holiday Clothes – Maria’s August Update

Florida here I come, the land of Baywatch babes and short shorts. Am I off to patrol the beaches of Los Angeles County and heroically save innocent members of the public from sharks, earthquakes, serial killers and, just occasionally, the sea? Am I eloping with David Hasselhoff? Am I bringing out my own range of […]

Breakfast cereal and body confidence: Maria’s July update

I AM NOT A SEAL- Maria’s February Update

Sometimes something so embarrassingly dreadful happens that it makes you physically cringe to think about it, and you know it will give you flashbacks for years to come. Sometimes we laugh these incidences off, but others leave a deep routed pain disguised behind the laughter.  Mine happened while I was snorkeling in the Med off […]

So I’m still an emotional eater… Maria’s November Update

I’ve talked honestly before about how I was an emotional eater, but over the last few years I’ve worked on it a lot, and I thought I’d banished the monster (or at least got him on a very tight rein). It seems that’s not the case. Once an emotional eater…? I recently had some very bad news […]
