    Hi all,

    me again :)

    Today is my first (new) w/i, I am seriously petrified to hop on those scales later on :eek:
    Had a brain stem stroke in November and only recently did I get decent mobility back. I have put on a lot - I can tell by my clothes.
    The medication I am on certainly doesn't help, but really they are no excuse for not eating proper food - it's been so much easier to nibble on cake, chocolates and so on.
    We have got a lovely holiday planned for the beginning of July and I WILL have a body I am happy to present in shorts or a swimming suit ;)
    The weight I have piled on doesn't help my recovery at all, so I need to get my act together and tackle this x

    Be kind to yourself, healthy eating hasn't been the highest priority in your life lately, you've had a lot to deal with. Good luck with your new journey. Xx

    Thank you :)
    We are off to a place in the Italian Alps, just above Meran. Been going there for more than a decade, absolutely love the place. I am trying very hard to become a bit fitter until then, as the place has got the most amazing walking routes x That's the hotel pure bliss

    It feels great to be back. At the moment I am looking through all my recipe books to make some meal plans.

    How beautiful is that. Yes I bet there would be some fabulous walks around there, and maybe a little bit of swimming as well (love that indoor pool). I think it will do you the world of good it looks so peaceful and relaxing. x
