    Well a week ago i decided to start taking care of my weight again.

    After loosing 22lbs with the help of slimming world, my dad passed away from his 2 year battle with cancer, i left and comfort ate a lot....

    4 weeks later i stepped on my scales to discover id put on .....8lbs which Is`nt as bad as id been thinking

    but after moving in with my boyfriends family and starting calorie counting with the OH mum it seems to be working Im so happy...things are finally working out.

    Hey Amy,

    First of all - really sorry to hear about your dad. That must have been INCREDIBLY hard to go through, and I think gaining a measly 8lbs is pretty bloody good considering.

    Glad to hear things are getting better for you. I'm sure that weight will drop off again in no time.

    Sorry to hear about your Dad, it must have been terrible for you, and as Cherry Pie said... 8lb gain is really quite good considering!
