Like many other women (and men) I struggle with my weight. It has been a constant issue in my life. My weight has gone up and down and back up again. Over the years, I have adapted a more healthy mindset towards my weight - I'm at a point where I still want to shed some pounds, but it is to improve my overall health, rather than it being the solution to all my problems. The point remains that I can't really remember a time in my life when it wasn't something dark and menacing looming on my life-horizon. I know I am not alone in this.
