    I've found myself lacking in motivation and inspiration so far this year. Not just diet wise but life in general. My kids have 'just' started school full time and i'm left feeling a bit like a spare part - there are things that i 'could' be doing but i can't seem to find a passion for anything at the mo I'm just kind of drifting.
    Was wondering what motivates and inspires you? (could be about losing weight or life in general)

    Why dont u try a part time job??
    or work voluntary in the local primary school?? Thats what I did when my youngest started school. Working there is great, and the teachers can always do with a spare pair of hands!! That voluntary work resulted in a full time permanent job at the same school, which is so handy, because im @ for my kids when they are at home.. Builds up ur self esteem and ur social life.

    Have a good day Ray

    Hiya Rayven you are at the point now what i will be at in September next year. That is when my youngest will start school full time. I have not had a single day to myself since my first was born 9 years ago and I cant wait but also I think I will just feel totally lost. So I will be interested to see what replies you get.:)

    Hey hun, after being a single Mum I was practically counting down the days until they both went full time and was really looking forward to it, but right now i can't think why - as i feel completely lost. :(

    Have you thought about taking up a course at college or I think you can even do them from home these days on your pc. You need to do something to keep you occupied and that you enjoy. :)

    I was the same as you single mum time on my hands but I think it is a great idea to do the school work as Babs says or try and go down the dinner lady route I did that had a grat time play with the kids.
    I then did the reading with the little ones ane even got involved with the parents assoc broadened my social lifw no end.
    Keep your chin up.
    You ar alway there for everyone else and we are there for you xx:)
