Monday’s thought… If you’ve gone off track over the weekend and feel like giving up - stop and think for a moment. You need to know that nothing is IMPOSSIBLE the word itself says I'M POSSIBLE. Take a moment to reflect on why you started in the first place and remind yourself that it is possible to achieve what you want. Remember why you started, you’ll find a way. Annette :-) ...

Friday’s thought… When will you have the strength to say no to chocolate, to say no to a wine? What will it take? For me it was when I stood naked in front of a large mirror and saw what my unhealthy eating was doing to my body - I was 100 kilos and obese. I cried, but that was the day that I changed my life. I decided to become a healthy person and refused to let food control me anymore. When is it going to be the right time for you? Is it today? Annette :-) ... See MoreSee Less

Thursday’s thought… A great way to determine if your weight is causing health problems is to measure your waist. Extra fat around your middle may increase health risks even more than fat elsewhere on the body. For women a waist measurement of more than 90cm, men more than 103cm, is an indicator of internal fat deposits. This can coat the heart, kidneys, liver and pancreas. Don't waste any more time, now is the time to start shrinking your waistline. Annette :-) ... See MoreSee Less
