Participating in a fat camp for adults took a lot of soul searching to make the decision to come, especially as it's something usually my children only do each summer. But i knew that i needed it, and it turned out to be a fantastic chance to break old habits and make new, healthier ones. Such a fantastic team: the encouragement and support was a great aspect of changing my lifestyle.
