'Rome wasn't built in a day'

How often do we hear or say this phrase? We know that building a house takes times, that working towards a promotion or studying a course takes time and that planting a tree and waiting for it to grow takes time.

Article by Liz Gold. I would like to share my story so far with you all. I realise it’s only been 12 weeks but I feel amazing. A couple of years ago I wanted to lose 10kg (which I lost but found afterwards!) I starved myself, walked for hours each day, rode the exercise bike for an hour each day sometimes twice a day until I was exhausted and felt awful. Why?

Imagine trying to sleep on your couch at night (so as not to wake your partner) with a hot water bottle, dosed up on neurofen from the pain of diverticulitis.Imagine waking up tired and sore everyday from this nightly ritual.
