    Yesterday was the first anniversary of my husband Nigel's death.

    The last year has seen a lot of changes for me, one of course being my weight loss with Lighterlife.

    I am so glad to have got through a year of 'firsts', and that I am now healthier than I have ever been.

    I've written about it more on my blog if anyone fancies a look.

    Amazing - you are so strong and courageous - I take my hat off to you and your girls...and to Nigel who seems to have been with you a lot of the way... I didn't realise it had quite happened like that - not that it changes the loss...but - Anna - you are an inspiration for taking such control of your life.

    Love,

    Hi Anna,

    Could not help but have a cry reading your posts and looking at photos of your wonderful husband Nigel, you and your children.

    Life seems so unfair...

    Thinking of you and the children.:grouphugg:

    Well done for making it through this year of 'Firsts'.

    Love Mini xxx

    Dear Anna

    I am sure everyone here on Minis will want to send you a massive hug and congratulate you for getting through the dreaded firsts.

    You are and will continue to be a fantastic role model for your girls and your students. I am sure, together with Nigel's legacy, your daughters will grow into amazing young women.

    Thank you for sharing; your blog is beautifully written and very moving (please go and visit anyone who's reading this).

    Take care.

    With love

    Mrs Lxxxxxxx

    I know it's a little off topic, but reading through your blog I realise that we would have been at Leeds University at the same time. I don't know when you graduated quite...but - I started doing English there in 1993 and I finally graduated in 1997. Anyway - really enjoying reading your blog...I love the pictures.

    Thank you
