The unspoken pressure to be a dress size smaller 

After watching Plus Size Wars on telly last night, part of me has been left wondering, who am I dieting for? Watching a handful of my favourite bloggers speak so passionately, honestly and truthfully about weight and dress size, it’s left me doubting myself.  I’m nearly 27 years old and I’m a shapely size 14….

Why I’ve decided to Race for Life 

About a month ago I decided it’s the time to start looking after myself and that meant one thing – exercise. At the start of the year I overhauled my diet so upping my fitness levels was the next issue to tackle. Now I’m not a runner. At all. Despite for the bus or occasionally,…
