I haven't posted for a while but for very good reason. I'm sure it comes as no surprise that I have an addictive personality and so in trying to motivate myself to lose weight, I swapped my constant fridge-checking for a constant sparkblog checking.
Upon finding out that I had spent over 30 hours on spark people in one week, I decided to go it alone for a while. I hope you all understand.
I'm back now and determined as ever to lose weight. Since I was here last, I've lost 14lbs/7 kilos and kept it off. I do declare I'll never get used to the weight tracker on here and my absence so far has only served to fuzz my brain even more!
The status of my knee is something that has caused me a lot of upset since I was here last. After many scans, X-rays and poking about, it has been decided that the tear and sprain are not what's causing the pain. The pain comes from the complete breakdown of my knee due to my weight. Suck on that, girly. The hospital can't help me, they've advised dramatic weight loss and a replacement kneecap once the old one has completely crumbled.
Hearing that my body cannot support my weight has been a massive wake up call. It is not news to me by any means but it has just driven the nail through to the other side, if you know what I mean.
One big positive is that I've had a friend over to stay from Canada and he spent the entire week trying to make me his new girl. He's a lovely guy (though not the guy for me) and despite my constant brush offs, we had a lovely week together and the boost to my self-confidence didn't go amiss!
I'll be having a look around and hopefully reconnecting with people but won't be venturing into the fora or joining any challenges. I've just got to do what's right for me.
Right then, who's missed me? Lies are acceptable
