Thank you for the replies they really do help ( Michael says I do not need to lose weight but only because I spend money going to WW). The main reasons I want to lose weight are firstly my health and I would look and feel better, I am feeling very low and sometimes wonder what people think of me especially with what I put up with.
I believe I have many things to be thankful for as when you look around the world and see the problems people have I feel very lucky, I am not religious but consider myself a christian as I do as much as I can to help other people and animals.
I am back to WW tonight and will go with a new vigor and do my best to get to a goal of 10 or 10 and half stone(14 pounds to a stone). I have pedometer and will try to remember to use it.
I am not sure I can do this weight loss anymore, WW was closed for 2 weeks and 2 weeks more because of snow, I have tried to be sensible but it has not been easy over the holidays.
I am doubting myself as I have only lost a stone and I am now stuck, my stress problems do not help and at the moment I do not feel very good. I am trying to do as many of my hobbies and groups as I can.
Christmas was really bad as Michael was very low and we did not even have christmas dinner. He did get up but only to sleep on the sofa but after boxing day he stayed in bed and did not get up till yesterday which means I spent it on my own.
I need to lose this extra weight and it would make me feel better about myself, it would also benefit my health but it is so difficult to keep on track
Things still are not going well here but at least the snow has gone. Michael has been in bed nearly a month now but I am doing my best to keep going. while the snow was here it was not easy and last Friday was the first day out of the village since christmas, I treated myself to a new cardigan from Asda and I added a new jug to my collection (it is in the shape of a cow ).
This week will be my first day back at school and I am really looking forward to it as I have missed the children.
I am working on some UFO's, I started a tablecloth some 5 years ago so would be good to finish it.
I will try add to my blog again on Wednesday
I did not realise it was so long since I last posted. I hope you all had a good christmas and wish you all the best 2010.
My Christmas was a none starter, Michael did get up only to lie on to sofa and mostly sleep, this really annoys me as he will do a lot of moaning. It was not until the Saturday afterwards that he stayed in bed and he is still there, he got really uptight on New Years eve about the noise from fireworks (the ones set off by yobs) and also last night.
I spent my time reading, stitching and watching TV and when on my own did not feel too bad but I am finding things a struggle. I will leave it there and try and post again on Monday.
Well it seems as if things are not to bad at the moment. We have had a good day as this morning we have been at MIND and this afternoon Michael went to a christmas party so I went to the library and had an hour on the computer, I found some lovely cross stitch bookmarks.
Tonight I am going to a fuddle ( a get together with drinks and food ), it is at the church craft group. I have not been for a few weeks so I am looking forward to seeing friends.
Tomorrow I have an appointment to see my GP, I still feel tired, tearful and stressed. I do not mind the christmas period but it seems as if everyone is rushing about and buying things they cannot afford, also most people seem to buy food as if the shops will be shut for a month.
It is so dull, wet and miserable and hardly anyone smiles at at you.
I would like to wish all my sparkfriends a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
