Why is it so hard to lose this weight again!
I felt so great when I was under 140, my confidence was high, I took time over my appearance and was even feeling sexy!
I had lost almost 80 pounds, and then did the second hardest thing and stopped smoking, yes I've said this many times on my blogs lol
I still have not lost a single pound of the weight gained in the first 3 months from first stopping.
Well I lost 5, then gained it back once again.
I no longer feel confident, don't care how I look, meaning I only get dressed if I actually leave the house, which isn't often and do not feel sexy any more.
I am so tempted to restart smoking, but that IS NOT going to happen, not with my lungs being as they are...or were.
I will NOT give in, I will NOT give up, I just want to get back the feelings I had last year!

I've slipped back into the old habits of not eating enough again.
I still can't exercise due to back pain, only managed 10 minutes on the elliptical today.
So as the local Iceland (frozen food store) had a special on, I bought a weeks worth of frozen weight watcher meals. (Only £1 per meal)
OK, I know it isn't the best choice, but at least I'd be eating right?
Just need to add extra veggies and I should be fine.
I will try to do a couple 10 minute sessions of exercise, if the back can take it.
I've got to do something as the weight is not shifting due to the lack of eating.
It's not that I am deliberately intending to not eat, I just don't feel like it.
So hopefully, I'll get back into the routine of eating regularly and the weight will start to move again.
I'm also going to check out the local swimming pool as I believe they have free swim sessions for those on disability, so fingers crossed I can get into that for a little extra exercise.
Hope everyone is doing well
Keep on sparking!

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY TO ALL UK MUMS
Well "summer time" has arrived in North America, while we in Europe are still on winter time, and it feels like it too.
I so wish I was back in Thailand, in the sun and 30c heat.
I got my appointment through for the hospital "pain clinic" it's for 3 months time!!!!
I'll be calling them in the morning to see if they have anything sooner, I don't want to sit here for 3 months....I want to get out of the UK!!
I feel so much more relaxed, happy, eating fresh food, exercising/swimming everyday when I'm in Thailand....think I'm suffering from SAD!
The people are so warm and friendly, it's not called the Land of Smiles for no reason.
I'll get back there sooner or later...preferably sooner!

I rarely get 6 hours straight, let alone 8, it's usually 4-5 hours.
I haven't wanted to eat or exercise, but of course I did a bit of both.
The last couple days I've been really tired, but still unable to sleep properly.
I'll take a Diazepam, so I know I'll get a least 3 hours straight, something about that pill it's always 3 hours on the dot!
I've tried taking a nice bath, relaxing with candles etc, that doesn't help.
I switched to decaffeinated coffee months ago, so it's not that either.
I'm not going to bed hungry or full...that's if I go to bed at all.
I usually end up falling asleep on the sofa about 4-5am.
I've tried going to bed at a "decent hour", but after laying there for an hour or 2 I get up again.
Any suggestions or tips, before I go to the doctors for a "proper" sleeping pill?
