  • Well done you, what a good idea! So glad you're feeling better :)

    Sometimes it can take an outsider to see what we can't.

    I think it must be a trait of this anxiety to be hard on ourselves. You achieve so much yet somehow don't see it that way. I'm sure you're not alone in that.

    I think the change of name is a brilliant idea, wow! that's a lot to lose, takes some serious effort & definitely worth celebrating! :)

    It's ok to relax a bit, it's not a race, how you get there is much more important than when :)

    You didn't do anyone's head in, to me you always seem very positive & do all you can to feel better. I admire your determination.

    Enjoy the movie


  • Thanks again !

  • Hi Stu

    First you haven't done any ones head in , this is what the site is here for to help through the good & bad times :-)

    Well done making that call & yes you are having a beep , slightly bigger than some but you can & will come through this & I am so pleased you made that call & they have helped you , well done :-)

    Also congratulations with the weight loss that is a massive achievement , maybe you just need to maintain the weight you are now & even though exercise is good for you ease a little & don't over do it

    Now please will you start & take care of yourself , your body has been through some these last few weeks , let it recover by resting & you will feel like a new man as well as the weight loss :-)




  • Yes indeed whywhy I conceded lol I've been over working and need to cut myself some slack thanks mate your amassing here's a hug from me hug x

  • It's hard when we feel we're doing ok then suddenly bam something hits and knocks us back. I think it possibly is bad at this time of year because we feel we have to be sociable when we don't really. Your post sounded really positive and I'm glad your feeling better.


  • Thankyou yes your right and that what came out in the call I feel very disappointed in myself for getting here in the first place time to reflect and allow it to just be there sod you anxiety I'm in charge :-)

  • What a positive start you will have to the New year. Losing weight is hard, I know, so you have done exceptionally well and must feel so much better for it. Good for you. !!

    We all have our blips and are all here to listen to whatever people post so , no, you are no trouble. That's what everyone is on here for... to support and get support. This site has helped me heaps over the last year. Just reading sometimes and helping . I don't post too often.

    I go for a walk every morning and really enjoy it. Keeps me fit and the weight down... especially after Christmas.

    So, Mr. Positive, I hope your New year is very good to you and also kind to all on here.

    Great to read your post. Love Julie xx
