My twins arrived in 2011, I was working in Nottingham living in the south and was constantly stressed and exhausted. By the time I’d changed jobs and was working back in London I’d hit 22 stone. All of a sudden I was working by a million sandwich bars and restaurants.
I genuinely could only see myself getting fatter and I knew that I would get even more stressed and exhausted.
I did about 6 weeks working on my brain searching for what life could look like.
I came up with images of me running, jumping over fences, climbing trees; generally being more playful.
I liked the future vision better than what I was experiencing so set up some rules that I felt I could stick to long term and vowed to remember how unhappy I was and how good the alternative felt.
