Starting again!!

Well here I go again! Planning my menus for the next week as my size 18 jeans hardly done up yesterday when I went to the park with the grandchildren. So annoyed with myself as I had managed to drop a dress size but the past year or so has been so stressful; losing my mum and getting out of a controlling relationship (I couldn't choose what to eat), starting again with nothing. I won't let these excuses ruin my health. Good luck everyone for the week ahead. We can do it 😁

  • Hello lj217 it sounds like you have a fair amount of strength and determination. So sorry to hear you have had such a bad time of it, no wonder you put the weight back on. Now, start again with a clean slate and use that strength and determination to focus on yourself. You know you will feel so much better once you take control again and start to lose weight. You have lost it before and you can do it again.

    We are all here for support if you need it. Best wishes EJ

  • Thank you for your lovely reply. It certainly helps to know there is always support. Hope you have a lovely week. xx

  • Hiya Ij217 no wonder you've been battling to lose weight- you've had a lot of upset to deal with. It's difficult to get your head in the right place when you have had upsetting things going on. I lost my dear Dad in May snd have been living on chocolate, cakes snd stuff I know I shouldn't eat since then. It's my ultimate comfort food. I am now losing weight by building comfort foods into my plan obviously not in industrial amounts as before.....I am also finding non food comforts to help me as well. You will know when your heads in the right place - good luck! We are here for you😀

  • Thank you. Sounds like you have been through a lot as well. You are going about it very sensibly, after all we need some comfort foods! I hope things go well for you. Will look forward to checking on your progress xx

  • Dear LJ 217
