About Happy Active Healthy

Welcome to Happy Active Healthy. I’m Emma, and I’m on a personal journey towards health.

My next mission: Losing Weight on a Budget!

I had gestational diabetes when I was pregnant with my 2nd child.

After that horrific taste of life with diabetes (my fingertips were constantly sore from testing my sugars 6 times a day), I was sent a letter from my local health authority.

They warned me that I had a 50% chance of developing Type 2 Diabetes within ten years if I didn’t get my weight under control. Specifically, I needed to maintain a non-pregnant weight of under 133pounds.

That was three years ago.

I’ve done almost nothing about it.

In that time I’ve focused almost completely on growing a business that can sustain us when we travel, but now travel scares me. I don’t want to wear a swimsuit, or even summer clothes, because none of my clothes fit me anymore and I refuse to buy clothes that do.

I simply cannot survive another year at this weight. I’m looking forward to becoming more happy, active and healthy over the coming months.

Here’s how I plan to do that:

I’m using Noom! After trying so many different types of diet, this is the one that is actually working for me.

I’ve also hired a trainer to work with twice a week, am trying to cycle more and just generally be more active.
