Cycles of Dieting

I saw this post on my way home last night (having avoided the gym because I was ‘too tired’). I loved it then, and identified with it immediately.

It’s a good 15 hours on and I still feel the same way.

For anyone who feels they get stuck in the vicious cycle of yo-yoing health focus, I recommend you have a read.

It sums it up pretty well, I think.  ❤
