    I'm having a weird day today! Today is the two year anniversary of my brothers passing. It doesn't hurt as much as it once did but its still raw. I have munched quite a bit today and am currently downing a bottle of wine but I really don't care today. I hope it doesn't effect weigh in on Monday though!! :sigh:

    I have had quite a trek today though! My brother, Andy, chose where he wanted his ashes scatttered (so very wrong that he should have had to at 23 but his brain tumor dictated so!!!) and so every year on this date we climb West Lomond (a steep hill) to visit (although I do visit him more often, weather permitting). It was gruelling climbing it but I have to say that it was clear to me and to ther others around that I am fitter than I can, or they can ever remember!! I would like to think that he is proud of me, and my Dad told me today that he would be too.

    Sorry guys I've rambled somewhat. I suppose that even though two year have passed I still find it difficult. I miss him and wish he could see Samantha, my daughter growing up....I'm pretty damn positive that he is looking down though!!

    "HUGGGGGS" I can't imagine how you must feel. But as you say I'm sure he would be proud of you & he will be keeping a watch over you & your DD forever.

    Your post made me a little teary hun! I think you deserve that wine and with a little care, you'll be ok come WI.
    You will always miss him, but you're absolutely right - he would have been extremely proud of you. I can bet you he always was anyway, but of your achievements with your weight and fitness...extra so.

    It sounds like you deserved the wine to toast your brother's life today.
    Tomorrow is another day, I'm sure you'll have saved some syns somewhere along the way for the wine x
