well..... I'm back
Its been a looooong time since I was last here, and I've managed to go from being almost at my 10 stone target........to gaining 4.5 stone
not trying to make excuses, but it really has been a pig of a year for me.
My MIL was diagnosed last Dec with terminal Bowel cancer the day we flew back from Hols
My Mum had a Mastectomy In January
My mum had a body scan in Feb which showed it had spread & was terminal
April My Mum Died in the Hospice
I got diagnosed with systemic Lupus & secondary Raynauds (on top of still not fully mobile from the brain surgeries)
My MIL died from the Bowel cancer In October
lots of family issues
sooooooo as I say not trying to make excuses.............but I fell off the wagon in grand style.
I am now however ready to tackle at least one area in my life that will hopefully make a difference to my health & emotional wellbeing...... so I took the plunge on Monday & signed up for 3 months SW online I always went to a group before, but I just don't feel like Im ready to face the world right now, I'm new to this area - and though its not a million miles from where I used to live, the thought of going back to that group HEAVIER than the 1st time I joined makes me want to cry
Anyway, its a fresh start & I have had a pretty good 1st week so feel hopeful that I can do this! AND Ive managed to not have any syns spent on chocolate this week (which is a major major thing for me)
so onwards & downwards.....lets focus on target! AGAIN!
