Karen's Weight Management Journey

I’ve known Karen for several years and in that time she has gone from over weight to ideal weight and back again (and again!)

Well, Karen has reached that tipping point again – at 5’3” tall and weighing 12 stone her BMI (Body Mass Index – height to weight ratio) is 29.8.  A healthy BMI is in the range 18 to 25 and obese starts at 30 – so this really is the time to do something about it! Karen is trying for her second baby and knows that getting her weight down will help her to conceive – so there’s a real incentive. 
With a weight measurement of 39” Karen has a 1 in 10 risk of developing type 2 diabetes in the next 10 years, so more reason to start eating healthily and move more.

We have worked out a plan together and we want to share her journey with you.  We will blog about her progress, about what goes well and what are the tricky bits.
We would really like you to help please.   We will let you know on facebook every time we blog – please feel free to comment (in a friendly, helpful way!) – we need all the encouragement we can get!
