I am back

Wednesday, June 11, 2014


It has been over a year now since my world was torn in two. Time to start moving forward. Baby steps to start with. I am going to try to start eating healthy again in a structured manner, not just eating from the fridge door.

I still have all my health problems, they wont go away, but having put back on most if not all of the weight I lost 3 years ago there is no one here if I fall or collapse, only me, myself and I (pinching a term a friend uses). My darling husband was so proud of me losing the weight I did and feel that I need to do it all again not just for me, but for him too. And I quite like wearing trousers, albeit palazzo because of my lymph. legs. - I know someone who will snort at that as I said I would never wear trousers until I was a size ...whatever.

It is not going to be easy, I am under no illusions, there is no one here now to say "well done, you are doing well and looking good, and a slap on the back ..."

So Day 1 tomorrow. emoticon

Blog I dont want to write

Sunday, May 12, 2013

After having a virus and then having been admitted to hospital after having a triple seizure one after another, came back home the next day after just one night in hospital to have my darling husband collapse with a fatal heart attack barely 2 days later. I am at the moment in total shock and still to some degree in disbelief it has actually happened, but I only have to look around my lounge and see all the condolence/sympathy cards to know it's true. My husband was cremated the day after what would have been his 59 birthday. We had so much to look forward to. My world has collapsed.

In due course I shall be back and eating like I should be, but at the moment am eating only to satisfy my dear friends and doctor who are concerned about my own health.

Never take life for granted live each day and hour to the fullest.

    Mine wasn't such a big shock as yours, since my husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer the year after I finished treatment. He died a year later at just 60. I still remember the total disbelief that this was happening to me though. He was always the fit and strong one. The one who was never ill! Don't worry about eating, or anything else except getting back on your feet. You will remake your life. It takes a little time, but it happens. Live life to the full, and that means you too!
If I can help/comfort at all, please contact me. I'm not much good at praying, but practical help aplenty! emoticon

One pound down

Sunday, March 31, 2013

Its a start. Weight is not coming off so quickly now so I shall have to be patient. One pound each week I know would be 52 pounds in a year!
Wishing all Spark folk a good week - at least I wont be eating any chocolate today being Easter - first time ever in my life emoticon

    One pound down is indeed worth celebrating. You're on your way and that counts for a LOT.

Best of success to you on the rest of your journey. One bite, one step at a time, you can do it.

Birthday Weekend Hiccups

Monday, March 25, 2013

Oh dear, being treated to a birthday weekend away in a hotel is not good for ones diet but hey ho, its once a year and therefore the 3 pounds I have gained will have to be lost again.

Its very frustrating because I am just itching to get below a certain weight and it is so eluding me. Perhaps I should just forget about it and therefore it will be attainable.

So this week will have to be a good week.

I must say though that even staying in a hotel and having ALL sorts to choose from for breakfast I was very very very good and never once had croissant for breakfast even though its my ultimate favourite breakfast. I did really well. So I shall give myself a little pat on the back for being good.

But I did manage to get into the swimming pool there, that was a miracle, even if I did not do a proper workout it was something different and was making my muscles work. Perhaps thats why the back hurts today!

Its nice to go away but you cannot beat your own bed...sheer bliss last night with zzzZZZZ.
