To find myself a middle aged woman with the girth of a beer swigging publican of 65, was a shock and I knew something had to be done about it.
My other fat friends and I would never have become engaged in The Publican’s Challenge but for two things: our mutual love of the glass and fork, and the enthusiasm and insight of our dear friend Kerry Ball. My new motto LESS IS MORE! And I am half the woman I once was!!
If someone had sneaked in my bedroom one night when I was 35 years old and 75 kilos and slipped another 25 into my body overnight I would have been suicidal. But when it happens over 20 years you don’t notice it. To lose 17 kilos on the Publicans Challenge has been the best tonic I’ve had for years It’s amazing that once a decision has been made to change your eating habits and daily exercise the gradual change and feeling of wellbeing just comes along automatically!
