I've had a really rough time over the last year, had real problems at eldest son's school so had to move him - he has autism and hates change so that was not easy but he's thriving now and loving it.
Had to change my daughter's school as her speech delay etc wasn't being addressed.
Then my 39 year old hubby had a heart attack and needed a stent fitting.
My parents had health issues
And the result of all this is I've put 16lb back on!
Last night I had a really awful time, we were watching The Biggest Loser and my 7yr old ASD son said "I wish you was on the tv" a d I laughed saying "yes, I do too - could be famous and have lots of money" and he replied "do this tv - are you fat?"
I sat trying desperately not to cry but boy did it do the trick! The Jaffa cakes I had bought for a late snack (yes one packet) did not get touched!
Then I woke up this morning to an email saying "your page is a motivational page" so it got me back on here.
Lots of messages from people saying they missed me and lots of people saying "where are you" in my inbox and suddenly I remembered I am not alone!
So I am back. We're off on holiday on Monday - our first family holiday - and my initial plans of a few visits to the Papa Johns and Burger King have now changed to a proper supermarket shop with lots of healthy options.
I've also just looked to see about exercise options at the site and my eldest son has just asked if we can do some jogging on holiday so I've downloaded the couch to 5k app for my phone and trainers are currently being scrubbed!
So thank you Spark People. Your email came at exactly the right time and I am back!
