How it all began.

This blog page will reflect on 40 years of yo yo dieting, the highs and the lows. The crazy diets I have tried the effect they have had on my life in particular my health. Whilst I hope that people may learn from my experiences the purpose of this blog is to help me learn the lessons I need that will enable me to create a lasting healthier life for myself.

This picture was taken when I was about 17. When I look at the size of me here I find it hard to understand how I was already having issues with food and worrying about my size. I was bigger than a lot of my friends but I certainly wasn't obese.

I’m Jenny an optimistic and motivational Life Coach, NLP practitioner & Professional Dieter.

Being a Yo Yo dieter is no fun and I should know. It’s exactly what I did for 25years. Each day berating myself for over indulging and promising myself faithfully that tomorrow would be different, of course it rarely was.

I spent years as a professional dieter, I learnt how to eat too much, to eat in secret then punish myself for not having had more discipline.

I learnt to live off shakes or cabbage soup, I ate cups of green beans and endless pills and bars. I wasted many years of my life applauding myself for having lost 2lbs. The same 2lbs I had lost and gained many times before.

I specialise in helping women to participate fully in their lives regardless of their weight, shape or size. With my help you too could be so much more than your diet.
