May on The Office Diet

What happened in May

The Office Diet has had a busy month! It’s been very encouraging to see a big increase in readers, so I want to mention some of the highlights from the past four weeks in case you’ve missed them.

  • Anna has been continuing her diary, giving us a very honest picture of how hard it can be to face the dieting challenges of the high-flying corporate world – and sharing tips and ideas that really work.

If you struggle to complete projects, if you have plans and ambitions that fizzle out to nothing, losing weight just might be that first big goal that gives you a real sense of achievement and fires you up for more.

      Here, I wanted to concentrate not so much on the how to lose weight but the why.
