    Hi Liezl Jayne,
    Thank you so much for taking the time to share your story, it has been so useful for me. I can really relate in some way to what you have shared.
    Since I was a baby I have always been quite a bit heavier than the other kids I grew up with – in school, at the playground, at the track, pretty much everywhere. My mum has only had weight gain after I was born, and she was in her 30s and my dad was an olympian so he was very fit and muscular.
    I have always been an active kid, doing sports, going camping, going on huge walks and stuff like that. However I always felt I was overweight. Now looking back at pictures, I look perfectly fine and healthy – never thin or slender, but definitely healthy and definitely not “fat”. I was always muscular, always toned, always with a nice shape but with some extra kilos compared to the “other standard kid”. I guess this is just my body type and I have learnt to accept it and love it.
    Since I stopped doing track and field in my 20s I have gained considerable amount of weight that at times I have managed to shift but that always piles back up. I can really relate with your past “fear of calories” because I can honestly say I that it’s the thing that makes the most sense but it’s the thing I always avoid.
    I really like your approach and I like your style of cooking, it’s very close to how I like to eat or ideally would like to eat, you use lots of ingredients that are in my fridge and pantry anyways so I will start to follow your meal plans using your recipes. And not tomorrow, but I guess … now 🙂
    Thanks again for sharing, I’m not sure how to keep you updated on my progress because I am very new to your website and I’m not sure if you have a forum or a community with which you communicate, however I’ll try to find out.
