Welcome to my Weight Loss Website and Blog
Hello! I’m Margaret, and I’ve created this weight loss website and blog to help all of us who are finding weight loss to be one of the trickier things we’ve tried to do, and are confused as to why!
I’ve spent a lot of time seeking out all the latest research as to why there is now a global epidemic in obesity and effective ways to deal with it. Not because I have any desire to conform to the stereotypical body images found to be attractive in modern society, but rather that we are likely to live longer and healthier lives if not excessively overweight. And I’m old enough to remember what it was like before this happened – when virtually nobody had a weight problem.
It’s not logical that this should be so tricky!
And before anyone shoots me down in flames saying that all you have to do is eat a bit less and move a bit more – if it were that simple, there wouldn’t be a global epidemic!
And a steadily increasing global epidemic that no-one so far has managed to stop!
The majority of people giving advice about weight loss have rarely had first hand experience of obesity. Or if they have, they are usually young, likely to be male and have been overweight all or most of their lives. And their diet prior to weight loss was mostly fast food and takeaways…
I so don’t fit this profile at all!
