The picture is of my wee boy Alfie who many of you have read about in my posts. This tiny little man is helping me through a very tough time indeed. Thankyou everyone for all your wellwishes on my last post some weeks ago.
I have only just weighed myself and found ( as expected) I have piled the weight on over the last 3 weeks., a lot of weight. I have not sat to eat a proper meal since 2 days before my Mom passed away, with so much to organise and trying to work inbetween I have eaten total junk - loads of pastry and bread, no fruit or veg to speak of and wine, way too much wine. Sadly I now weigh 231lb. Today I opened a letter my Mom wrote to me and didn't get chance to post, reading it was difficult but very strengthening. It has given me the push I need to start again and to remember that this life is wonderful and should be lived in as positive a way as possible. So I have weighed and refuse to be brought down by the gain. I have 'set out my stall' so to speak and planned my menus for the next couple of weeks, allowing for 'treats'. I am staying teetotal though, I feel I have used alcohol as a bit of a 'blotter' for these last few weeks as well as food.
So it's back to the starting block for me, but that's ok, I am fine with this. There is more reason than ever for me to want and need to be fit and healthy. Onwards and downwards.
Again, thankyou so much to all forum buddies who cared enough to post such supportive messages. Merry Christmas to you all, wishing you all health, wealth and happiness. Here's to a wonderful 2016 xx
