Hello my Darlings and welcome to Mum Dee Does. I am Dee, a mum who does (it all), and today I am exploring what led to the latest increase of my weight.
I lived in utter oblivion and denial about my weight since before giving birth to my little precious Ronnie. I used every excuse under the sun to justify why I needed that extra pack of biscuits or a midnight snack (most commonly a whole pizza all to myself!)... After all, I was pregnant… I was breastfeeding… I was not sleeping very well… I was stressed finding my new role and purpose in life as a parent... I was fighting off depression… I was… I was... A new excuse on my lips, a new bar of chocolate for a lifetime on my hips! And so it went on for the best part of two years.

Hello my Darlings and welcome to Mum Dee Does. I am Dee, a mum who does (it all), and today I am starting my new fitness and weight loss journey.
I have just filmed the first few segments for my YouTube channel, and let me tell you this - Jabba the Hut would be proud of me! My face was puffed up beyond anything I’ve ever seen before!
For as long as I remember, I have always been a larger girl. My childhood was hardly ever a smooth sailing, so it was no surprise that I became addicted to sugar - the only available and non-offensive drug a child has plenty of access to. I have also been a heavy sleeper, consciously attempting to sleep through the childhood period of my life, until I was ready to break away and start a better life. It worked. But now I realise that I am a rather stagnant and sedentary person as a result.
I am Dee
I am sharing my thoughts, life's triumphs and trials as well as fun-filled projects with a 2 year old Ron from a remote island in Orkney whilst my superhero husband and Ron's daddy is saving the world with the Royal Fleet Auxiliary.
