Losing weight and getting fitter isn't easy... for anyone. A physical disability and pain present additional barriers.
Over the course of two and-a-half years I have successfully lost over 4 and a half stone (28.5kg) and improved my fitness through exercise.
This blog charts my journey sharing many of the things I have learned along the way, including my love of food (which I've learned can be a positive when it comes to heathy eating!).
Now I've never sent out a personal plea via my blog before, but right now I am desperate!
I entered one of my recipes into a competition, with absolutely no idea of how things might develop.
There are now just 17 votes difference between me and my only contender in this competition! Voting ends tonight, Saturday 7th March at midnight. I now need you to ask your friends, enemies and anyone else you know to vote for me! And if you have more than one email address, use them ALL to vote too! I can't let victory slip away from me at this late stage....
I am donating any winnings to Alzheimer's Research, and this could potentially be £1,000....
