No-one would deny I am a little porky. It's not good for my health, my figure or my self image. And when I think of how many millions around the world don't have enough to eat, the fact that I have taken more than my share weighs heavy on me (no pun intended.)
Today, (Friday June 15th, 2018) I joined Slimming World and my goal is to lose three stones (42 pounds) by Christmas 2018. What better way to motivate myself than to know that every pound I lose will help children who don't have enough to eat?
World In Need runs a feeding programme in schools in Kenya and DR Congo. Every £5 given to the feeding programme allows them to feed three children two nutritious meals a day, every day for a month.
I'd like to raise £10 for every pound of my three stones. That's £420, enough to feed 252 children for a month!
Will you help me turn my pounds into changed lives?
