I am a 33 year old woman living in the South West. I use this blog to talk about my weight loss journey, my mental health journey and various other journeys including walking to help me get myself in shape!

I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2012 after being sectioned for mania with psychotic features following a very traumatic breakup. My main mental health issues have been depression and anxiety, which I have suffered from most of my life. I have only had two short episodes of mania in my life, including the one in 2012.

I have been a couple of stone overweight for much of my adult life, but I put on another stone and a half after being put on Quetiapine, which I still take because I love it! It helps me sleep! And I really do not want another manic episode. They’re embarrassing…

I hope that you enjoy reading my blog and find some inspiration or motivation while I try to get down to a healthy weight using a healthy diet. Comments are very welcome and appreciated 🙂
