Christmas is coming

Yes Christmas is coming and I wondered if you are thinking that you wish you had lost weight this year.  Perhaps promising yourself that in the New Year you really will go on the diet to shift your weight for good.

I know I have been there in previous years regretting that I was still overweight and couldn’t get into clothes I wanted to for the Xmas Party.

Well if this you and you want to make 2017 the year that you beat a weight issue then I would love to speak to you.

I am only writing a short blog this week as I have been away for a few days enjoying a city break.  It was good that I did a lot of walking both sightseeing and shopping in the fabulous city of Oxford as well as attending an Alabama 3 gig which involved a lot of dancing.  Hopefully that will have counteracted the alcohol!

Life doesn’t have to be dull when you are losing weight or keeping it off, everything is just a balance.

It’s great to plan a wedding

Whilst it is fun to be spontaneous in life some things do need some planning and weddings are certainly one of the things that come into that category.

I been plotting with my daughter all the things we need to get done before her wedding in the summer next year and how some of them you just can’t get on with until others have been completed. Yesterday was spent writing invitations which is the beginning of getting to precise numbers for the day!

This is really exciting and of course there is a date in place to keep us focussed to make sure we get everything done and part of that is making sure we are both in the best shape we can be for the day.

Whilst my daughter is not overweight she does want to lose a few pounds to look her best but knows that there is no need for any drastic action or miracle plan.  Just healthy eating and exercise and she uses lots of my Weight Away recipes to help with that.

I will be joining her to lose the weight I have put on whilst getting over my broken wrist, I am not a lot  heavier but weigh more than I usually do from not being able to exercise for about 6 weeks and I confess to a bit of comfort eating when feeling sorry for myself.  We are all human!

So if you have an event that you want to get into shape for I can help  with plans, recipes and support to get you to where you want to be. So just get in touch.


Lovely Feedback From a Client

If you want to lose weight then here is an update from one of my clients on her successful weightloss with Weight Away.

Alison writes

“I first joined Weight-away in July 2014 with the aim of losing 2 Stone before my daughter’s wedding in January 2015.  Following Sue’s eating plan and with her support I achieved that goal and dropped from a size 16 to a size 12 in 7 months.

14 months and one grand-daughter later I am still maintaining my healthy weight and still wearing size 12 clothes.  In the past when I have dieted the weight has returned within a short period of time, but this time it’s different and the reason for that is because my relationship with food has changed for good.

I no longer deny myself foods that I enjoy, but have learned to eat smaller portions or to substitute them with something similar but with fewer calories, for example I enjoy cheese and biscuits as a snack in the evening but now substitute the crackers for melba toasts and the cheddar for low fat Philadelphia.

I also balance my meals better throughout the day.  I eat more for breakfast which keeps me going until lunchtime so that I’m not tempted to snack mid-morning or over-eat at lunchtime and in the evening.

I allow myself to indulge a little more at weekends and during celebrations because I know that I can balance things out the next day by cutting down on permitted snacks or by following one of Sue’s balancing day eating plans.

I no longer obsessively weigh myself every day, or even every week.  I am in full control, knowing that weight naturally fluctuates throughout the day/week/month but as long as I am eating sensibly and keep within a certain weight range I will maintain my weight-loss and clothing size.

I continue to use the weight-away recipes on a daily basis (I have quite a collection of them now), as my family love them too and I can trust that they are healthy, carefully calorie counted and correctly portioned and they are so tasty and easy to prepare.

Contacting weight-away was one of the best decisions I have ever made.  It has changed my life by making me more healthy, confident and restoring my energy levels so that I am more active and can keep up with my growing grand-daughter.”

If you would like to lose weight and keep it off as Alison has done then contact me at and I would be delighted to help you have the same success.

Are you motivated to lose weight?

If you have a wedding to attend or want to look good for event but want to lose weight then start now.

Often when we have an event in our life when we want to look our best, that can be a good motivator to lose weight.  The further away it is though can be the reason to put off changing your eating habits until suddenly you find yourself with a month to go and you haven’t lost a single pound.

I can remember many times when I promised myself just after Christmas that I would be slimmer for my summer holidays only to find myself a few weeks before I was due to go desperately trying to find things that would fit me.

So whatever your motivation is for losing weight, whether it is an event, or to improve your health, don’t put off till tomorrow what you could do today or it will never happen.

I have special offers running in February for people who sign up to Weight Away Plans so what are you waiting for? Get help now to change your eating habits and lose weight for life not just that special occasion!
