Newbie’ish

I haven’t introduced myself as yet do here l am. I’ve had a number of bad years of depression, anxiety and low self esteem l feel at 55 l need to turn things around. My weight had multiplied and l feel desperate to doing something about it. My life isn’t straight forward with looking after my parents changing my job to accommodate. I feel no time for me so eating and drinking is my outlet.

Monday is the start for me a new start.

Sorry to hear about your problems but don't forget all the lovely people on here who always support and understand

I remember well the strain I was under trying to look after my presents and it is hard to think of yourself too

Looking forward to reading your posts and how well you do

Hi Tree-hugger

You certainly have a lot to contend with, but it's good to hear that you are now taking steps to look after yourself also.

Well done, you need to put yourself first to be able to help others... otherwise you can't be helpful to anyone..!

I always think of the instructions to put your oxygen mask on FIRST before you help others with theirs, it takes a while to grasp the true significance of that.. But once understood - you have to live it!!

Cheering you on to be better for you and all you care for 🎉🎉🎉

Yes, have very little time for myself. Between my elderly parents back and forth to opticians, GP, dentist, shopping, working and taking the dog for a walk l don’t sit down until 10 pm.
