I've been plodding along since January and I'm just a pound away from losing 2 stone. Last week we had some devastating family news and since then my whole world has been turned upside down. There's been days when I've had to get to a hospital over 100 miles away which has meant leaving home very early and not getting home until very late. I've got people staying with me and this was completely unexpected - I didn't have any notice at all so the place looks like a nightmare and we are all emotionally and physically drained - cooking meals from scratch or even doing shopping is out of the question. I've got 7 loads of washing to do and I still have to care for my elderly Dad - from whom we have kept our terrible news as I don't think he could take it. I feel like all the plates I've been spinning round for the last few months have crashed down around me and there's nobody to pick them up. My diet since last weigh-n (Wednesday) has been either take-aways, cheese & crackers or anything I can quickly grab from a motorway stop or a hospital cafe. And lots of wine. How am I ever going to get back on track - the thought of putting back on what I've already lost is making me even more miserable. Thanks for reading - I know there's no easy answers. I think posting on here is a substitute for screaming out loud.
