As a teen, Mel was part of an elite training programme within the demanding sport of rowing. Somewhere in the recesses of her memory, she knows what it takes to be a powerful athlete. But since giving up the sport, Mel has retained the high-carb diet and watched herself inflate, becoming an extreme opposite of the committed individual who handled the ritual of training all those years ago.
Obesity certainly hasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t made Mel feel any less self-conscious at the food magazine where she works, especially since she shares offices with the snooty staff of glitzy fashion magazines. At age 24, Mel still hasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t been involved in a serious relationship. There was a time when Mel was full of hope and slimmed down to please an admirer but when that promising relationship floundered, the lost kilos returned.
ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s time for a young lady with limitless potential to regain the mindset and work ethic that she mastered as a teen. And when the self-confidence returns, who knows? There may be a little room for love.
