GoodnessknowsRestart January 2022

I was pleased with my weight, figure and exercise at the end of 2019. Then along came Covid and on top of that I was diagnosed with Non Hodgekins Lymphoma. Surgery, chemo and radio was the regimen for that year. Not a good time to need serious treatment. Everything went to pot. Got through it all and was given the all clear in Spring of this year. For a while I was too weak for exercise and although I wasn't gorging on chocolate and junk food (not keen), lack of exercise and need of comfort won out. I gained about twelve pounds but am determined to get back on track and lose that weight by mid April when I'm off on the Queen Elizabeth for a cruise around the Med. The Christmas gorge was followed by my birthday (73). Now it's all over I'm knuckling down. This morning I did five minutes on my exercise bike followed by some dumb bell exercise. This afternoon it's swimming. Although its cold, the sun has come out and I feel an uplifting of my spirit. Hope it's sunny where you are too. Best wishes to you all.

So happy to hear that you are clear and got through that terrible time for you! Well done on all that determination and a very happy birthday. You have done so well. Wishing you success and many more healthy happy returns of the day. Maybe if I had a cruise lined up, I'd be more determined.....
