The MoH financial fitness challenge … Day 0

The MoH financial fitness challenge … Day 0

As the MoH’s financial balance has grown, so has her waistline and hips.  Since 2010, I’ve gained around a kilo a year … at least … The reality really hit home when I was visiting my family last year and had a photo taken with my sisters.  My older sister, who has taken up distance running, looked a fraction of my size!

I thought the excess weight would shift when I had a holiday between jobs and got lots more exercise, but most of it steadfastly refused to budge.  The situation became dire this week, as busy nights at work tempted me to buy takeaway multiple times.  I’ve been too afraid to step on the scales lately, but I finally took the plunge this morning to confirm the exact damage.  I won’t publish the figures, but a change is clearly in order!  Basically, I need to lose six kilos to get back to my 2010 weight.
