Hi, my name is Sue and I live in North England I had been overweight most of my adult life, putting weight on, going on a silly diet, maybe losing a little, but of course, it would all come straight back on very quickly. I am type one diabetic, which means I am insulin controlled, and I blamed my weight a lot that. I just made excuse after excuse.
Then, in 2010, I had my second marriage, and at the time, I thought I looked like the bee’s knees. I was quite overweight, I was just trying to say I didn’t care, and I still looked great. I couldn’t look at my wedding pictures without feeling sick with disappointment and embarrassment.
Those pictures were the kick up my backside that I needed. I started my journey of clawing back my physical best. I had a lot to learn, and relied on cardio. I did cycling, aerobics and DVD’s, long story short, I managed to drop forty pounds, and then came the real job of maintaining. I had discovered the joys of strength training, and invested in a set of dumbbells.
