This is me in 2016 after losing 35 kg (5 stones or 70 lbs) by eating mainly plant-based / juicing green vegetables. Lost my focus soon after this photo was taken. Gained 15 lbs (& lost it again). I now focus on a healthy lifestyle.
Since March 2015 I have been working as a live-in carer. Providing an opportunity for elderly and vulnerable adults to be looked after in the comfort of their own home. I live with them for anything between 2-6 weeks and then take a break to travel.
I was born in London in 1966, a middle child and a shy introvert.
At 5′ 10″ I have always hated my height but have learnt to live with it.
By age 25 I found personal development and was able to live a little. Became a mother of three and ended up a single mother. Have raised three amazing human beings who are now living their life.
Caribbean heritage. My parents were born on an island in the East Caribbean called Dominica (Commonwealth of Dominica).
2008-2014 has been the most challenging time, as it was for many, and I ended up selling everything I owned and starting over. It has been slow going.
Around the age of 47 I found out about the Blue Zones and decided my midlife and older years will be more like that – being fit, healthy and eating more vegetables than meat. So that’s my goal. To change my middle-age spread into middle-aged shred. To be more strong than I am saggy. I have a lot of work to do.
