    The last couple of months have been a total rollercoaster for me in both sw and personal life terms. I had totally fallen off the wagon in October/November due to finding out I was pregnant, not expected but a pleasant surprise. In that time I just couldnt do the sw thing, and even though I appeared on here from time to time, I even blanked this as I was ashamed of my loss of control.
    But on December 1st at 14 weeks I miscarried :( totally devastated and I was very ill. I spent the whole of December wiped out with anemia and various other problems linked with severe blood loss, and again I just ate to deal with it all...Not good.
    There is a light at the end of this tunnel though....in total I put on a stone which is a terrible loss of control...but I just spiralled. But for the last 3 weeks I have pulled myself back together, I have now gone back to work full time....and have almost lost that stone already! This just goes to prove I am capable now of turning things around no matter how bad they get, where as before my weight would have just spiralled!
    So really any of you that do fall of the wagon in a big way, and are feeling it will never get better....It will you can do it...especially with the help of everyone on here. Even if you dont post, as I didnt for quite a while just reading can help.

    Oh Snuggle, so sad to hear of your miscarriage. I had one a few years back too and it completely devastated me. Congrats for getting back with the plan though. You know what they say - 'a woman is like a tea bag, you never know how strong she is till you put her in hot water'. And you is one strong lady.

    I am so sorry snuggles. That is just so sad. I can imagine your heartbreak.

    Turning to food is what we do, it is our comfort, our security blanket.

    You have proved what you are made of. Not only have you taken off the weight you put on you are on here giving advice to us. People like me who at the moment are finding it very difficult to get back on track properly. Thank you so much.

    I will think of you when I reach for something I know I should not be having.

    lots of hugs xxxxxxxxxxxxx[​IMG]

    Oh snuggles I'm really sorry to hear about your miscarriage. It's so understandable that you'd fall of the wagon but you are definitely one strong lady getting straight back on the wagon.

    Just make sure you look after yourself hun, take care XX

    I can only echo what the others have said. You are incredibly strong and an inspiration to all of us - and I dont use that word often, but you are. You are amazing.

    Thanks guys, your comments and thoughts mean a lot, its taken this long for me to be able to talk about the miscarriage, that just topped off a totally horrendous year for me.
    But its you guys who have inspired me to get back on the wagon, its all the stories, pictures, receipes and support on here that help. Our own little online community!!

    And as Ellebear says...I am her own stalker lol we passed each other in Norfolk over the new year, didnt speak....but I would recognise her anywhere she really is an Inspiration to us all!!

    May is going to be the next challenge for me, but fingers crossed by then I will be at target and will be able to resist the binge urge!
