    Ok, so possibly the shortest and most dramatic interlude - but I'm back!

    I felt so so terrible last night - properly lost the plot and couldn't see through the mist of the tears and f**d to see that any good could have come from my indiscretions.... but here I am, feeling on top of the world - DETERMINED to see this through to goal, and all thanks to you lot and your support. I felt quite good when I woke up - well, actually, I felt rubbish (convinced I looked HUGE again, my tummy felt bigger, I felt wobbly etc, and I just wanted to die... but this in turn made me feel quite good about the fact I have the power to change that)...

    Then I put on some cheesy pop and padded through to the kitchen to make my brekkie shake and - and I'm not usually a gushy emotional sort (who am I kidding) but a song came on by Beyonce called Listen (if you watched Dreamgirls/the X Factor final you'll know it) and I just burst into tears...

    Now - you should definitely listen to the track - it is a stunning song whether you are 'into that sort of thing' or not... and, if you have lapsed and come through it, it may strike a chord. For me it was the things I was saying to my alter-foodie-ego... the part of me that has controlled my life for so long and I was putting my foot down. It was so empowering!!!

    THEN I log on here, and frankly - I feel I could climb Everest right now.. the support from you all has been out of this world and I really really needed it. This forum is most certainly a part of my journey, and I now know it is as crucial for the bad times as well as the good - and I feel I've made some good friends on here. I hope we all get a chance to meet up one day. Slendablenda, Blonde Logic, Andy, Sweety, Catz, LS, Porgeous, Vintella, Mandy, FYM, Guy... from the bottom of my heart and all that mushy stuff... thank you :)

    Emzski, Pete, Tange - thank you for the PMs - was going to write back individually, but everything I want to say is here in this thread, but a huge glittery genuine THANK YOU!! for caring enough.

    Ok - this is turning into some sort of horrible tooth-jarringly-sweet Oscar acceptance speech, so I'll bugger off...

    But do me a favour and listen to that track I mentioned - it's called Listen by Beyonce and here is a link to a video of it..
    YouTube - Listen - Beyonce

    And the lyrics...:

    Listen,
    To the song here in my heart
    A melody I've start
    But can't complete

    Listen, to the sound from deep within
    It's only beginning
    To find release

    Oh,
    the time has come
    for my dreams to be heard
    They will not be pushed aside and turned
    Into your own
    all cause you won't
    Listen....

    [Chorus]
    Listen,
    I am alone at a crossroads
    I'm not at home, in my own home
    And I tried and tried
    To say whats on my mind
    You should have known
    Oh,
    Now I'm done believing you
    You don't know what I'm feeling
    I'm more than what, you made of me
    I followed the voice
    you gave to me
    But now I gotta find, my own..

    You should have listened
    There is someone here inside
    Someone I'd thought had died
    So long ago

    Oh I'm screaming out, for my dreams to be heard
    They will not be pushed aside or worse
    Into your own
    All cause you won't
    Listen...

    [Chorus]

    I don't know where I belong
    But I'll be moving on
    If you don't....
    If you won't....

    LISTEN!!!...
    To the song here in my heart
    A melody I've start
    But I will complete

    Oh,
    Now I'm done believing you
    You don't know what I'm feeling
    I'm more than what, you made of me
    I followed the voice, you think you gave to me
    But now I gotta find, my own..
    my own...

    **************

    Thank you all so so so so so so so much... :D

    Love to you all xxxx

    "Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you may never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb." - Winston at his best.

    Glad to have you back. :)

    Hello gorgeous Anna, and welcome back.

    I don't know if you have seen my most recent post on the August starters thread but I too, have had a sh!te week to put it bluntly.

    I woke up today, much like you, feeling good, feeling I can see this through to goal, and with a renewed enthusiasm and determination!!

    We WILL do this, you can't keep us August starters down for long ;) !!!!!!

    Best of luck and keep it up honey xxx
