Fasting. The good, the bad and the hungry

This weekend I had a catch up with a friend, who I haven’t seen in quite some time. I haven’t actually seen a lot of my friends in quite some time. I have been working at a VERY stressful job Monday to Friday which has left my physically and emotionally spent (we are talking 7 am to 10 pm days most weeks just to get on top of things), having a lot of family issues with all the land reform drama happening with my family in Zimbabwe and knowing that my Dad is pretty much homeless at the moment thanks to Robert Gabriel f**king Mugabe, add to that I bought a new house (the same time I started the most stressful job in the world) and have been trying to move in and get settled, I then got broken into, had my house flood and my geyser burst. I mean, I could go on, but you kinda get how f**ked up busy my life has been. The job thing has changed thankfully and I for the first time in 6 months feel like I can breathe again. It’s superb.READ MORE

I am 10 kgs heavier than I was about a year ago, and I feel sluggish and unhappy with my body.READ MORE

Why Weight Watchers is working for me

I have battled with my weight my whole life (those of you who have followed my journey from the start know would know that I lost a whopping 50kgs over a 2yr period, for those of you who are new to my little part of the internet, now you know it too).  I spent the first 24 years of my life as the fat kid, and I don’t know what happened but at 24 after years of hating myself and battling to fit in to society (and clothing) something clicked and I started a diet called Cohen with a friend of mine and the weight fell off.
