My story

[p]So my mid-life crisis began in the run up to my 40th birthday  I sat on my bed in September 2015 and realised that my weight gain, smoking and lack of exercise was going to lead me to health problems.  I was unhappy with the way I looked and I couldn't climb the stairs without feeling out of breath.[/p][p]I emailed my close girlfriends and admitted how I felt and vowed to go back to exercising and eating well.  When I was feeling down, I would eat and then I'd feel worse, it was a self destructing vicious cycle.  [/p][p]I set myself 6 week goals and put my mind to it... I will update with the details of the goals and achievements and some photos over the coming months. [/p][p]The result: 4 and a half stone lost, 10 months without a cigarette, 3 half marathons and a place in the London Marathon!  Woo hoo - I feel great too![/p][p]Hi, thanks for visiting my page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.
