My name is Karen and I have decided to start the weight loss blog to help others who want to find a sustainable, long term way to lose weight and keep it off.  I have tried so many diets over the past 30 years and I feel as though someone switched on a lightbulb in my head!  I finally “get it”.  After years of feeling that changing things would be too difficult, I finally realised that NOT changing was not an option if the life I wanted was to manifest itself.  I hit my 50th birthday at the end of 2010 and I think I realised that if I wanted things to change it was up to me to change them; I was ultimately responsible for my life – I know, it took me long enough huh? 

I hope others find the information useful and can incorporate it into their own lives to make a difference.  I have been there, done it and got the T shirt, so although we all have our own paths to follow, if anything I share will help others, it’s got to be all to the good.
