I am now so worried that I will put it back on. <BR> Sat, 2 Sep 2017 14:15:02 EST Life has been awful http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6401964 Sorry not been here for a while but life has thrown quite a lot at me recently, we had a 5 day break in W but Michael's mood was not good and he moaned about everything from the room(the only thing wrong in my mind as it was over the kitchens), the day trips, the couple who were at our table and wales itself. I did sort of enjoy myself as the weather was good and it was a lovely town(Llandudno). <BR> His mood was no better when we got home and a few days later he took a small overdose of t... Sun, 20 Aug 2017 12:29:01 EST Weight loss and problems http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6379523 Hello once again <BR> Yes I have lost weight but had thought I would have done better than I have done. Michael was in hospital for 2 days due to a chest infection so that sent things a bit haywire but all is good now. <BR> I have 3 weeks left on the healthy eating group and it has helped but it is just going to take longer than what I wanted. <BR> On the 3rd of July we go away for 5 days and that is going to be hard as they usually provide good meals. Sun, 25 Jun 2017 13:48:09 EST Finding it hard again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6367764 I have had some problems recently, they started about 3 weeks ago when pains in Michael's chest got suddenly worse, I knew it was not an heart attack but did not know what it was, He phoned 111 and they thought an ambulance was needed, they came very quickly and they did an ECG which was fine, they wanted to take him to QMC but as it was so far he refused, he was OK until Tuesday when he had an appointment with the nurse, he told her the problem and she insisted he go to hospital so again it ... Sun, 28 May 2017 15:22:00 EST Not much this week. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6354323 I only 1/2 a pound this which was a bit disappointing but I am sure I will have done OK next time, there is no class next week as he is having a day off but as I am due to go to an hospital appointment(a biopsy on my big toe). <BR> I have not done as much exercise as usual again because of appointments but did quite a lot of walking last week. Thu, 27 Apr 2017 12:18:47 EST Appointments and Easter http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6351164 Well I have had no exercise this week because my main gym and swim days are on Monday and Friday, unfortunately those were the day the gym was closed, I would have gone walking but the weather not so good on some days. I also missed my healthy eating group as Michael had an appointment with the psychiatrist, I have tried my hardest to keep on track but it has not been easy. <BR> I shall have to miss another session in 2 weeks as I am to have a biopsy on my big toe, I do like to follow things... Thu, 20 Apr 2017 16:02:18 EST New group http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6340326 I have been to tne new weight loss group today but unfortunately the scales were not working, I did weigh myself yesterday and I had lost 3 pounds, I am very pleased with that and just need to keep it up. <BR> I had plenty of exercise as went swimming twice, gym once, 2 walks plus everyday activies like going to the shops and gardening. <BR> I am determined to lose that extra weight, be healthy and be positive. <BR> <em>521</em> <em>595</em> <em>593</em> Tue, 28 Mar 2017 16:19:58 EST First weigh in http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6336457 I went to the NHS weight loss group today, it was good, the talk was about fluids which was very informative. My w eight was 11st 12lbs. Tue, 21 Mar 2017 12:54:39 EST My weight problems http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6332430 I have decided that today is the first day of my diet(officially it is next Tuesday), I will be keeping an on-line food diary. I weighed myself this morning and I am 11st 12 pounds and would like to be below 11st, I am going to exercise as often as I can but have to work it around my partners hospital and doctors appointments. <BR> <em>521</em> <em>521</em> <em>521</em> <BR> Be positive Mon, 13 Mar 2017 15:04:23 EST I am still here http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6329859 I am so sorry not to have been here but until the last 3-4 weeks things have not been good. <BR> I am starting at a 'new' group on the 21st is though my GP as I felt I needed extra help in losing the extra weight, I am going to make a few promises <BR> 1 Go on Sparkpeople at least once a week <BR> 2 Keep up my exercise groups <BR> 3 Curb my comfort eating <BR> 4 Be positive and smile <BR> <BR> I would like to lose 14-20 pounds at about 1-2 pounds a week. Wed, 8 Mar 2017 15:25:50 EST counseling http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6278643 I am too start counseling for about the 4th time on Monday, I prefer to talk to someone that is not connected to me as I find it easier, friends would listen to me but I don't like to burden friends too much as they are already very good to me. <BR> <BR> I really will have to take control of my weight before it gets out of hand, I have been comfort eating and put on about 8 pounds, I am still doing as much exercise as I can but having to fit it around several other things at the moment. Fri, 9 Dec 2016 15:09:40 EST Tough few weeks http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6271113 The last few weeks have not been good for me. My husband was in a very low depression(11 weeks) I had the doctor down to see him and we was put onto a new mental health team, last week the psychiatrist visited (an emergency visit only took a week), only trouble was that he was on a high by the time they came so it did not go as planned. <BR> Diet wise over the last 6 months I have put on 6-7 pounds, I know it is not much but I really struggled over 3-4 years to lose it and it feels l... Wed, 23 Nov 2016 10:16:17 EST Nothings changed http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6257954 My diet is still not going well, I am trying but feel so stressed at times I just eat without thinking about it, I am still exercising as much as I can and I do feel different afterwards. <BR> On the whole my diet is good but just tend to go overboard with my favourite foods(bread, cheese and peanut butter), I am to see my GP next Tuesday about several things so shall tell about my worries <BR> On the stressed side of things I had a doctor out to see my husband on Tuesday and I am hoping they... Thu, 27 Oct 2016 13:56:04 EST My feelings http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6251516 I am still feeling the same but doing my best to carry on, I am keeping busy but maybe a bit to busy as it is the only way I can cope with his moods. He tells me he is thinking of suicide a lot more these days but won't let me contact the doctor(not that much happens when I have done in the past), he will not help himself so not a lot I can do. <BR> Weight wise it is a real struggle but I am trying my best to not to comfort eat(not easy), exercise wise all is good as It is one way I can work ... Fri, 14 Oct 2016 14:30:00 EST Tired http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6249436 I have had a sort of good day, I went into Nottingham to meet mum(I don't like going into town now to busy to crowded usually), mums not been well recently as she was in hospital twice in 5 weeks, it was easy to see her in hospital but not so easy when she went home, we live 30 miles apart and I do not drive. I am not coping so well with my husbands mental health problems, It has been going on now for about 15 years(most of our married life he has had some problems they just got worse recentl... Mon, 10 Oct 2016 16:03:00 EST Hello http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6246825 Well it is an understatement to say it has been a while but hoping I am back to stay. I have not been feeling very good recently and the result is about 6-7 pounds in weight which I now need to get rid of, trouble is I don't think I know how as most of it is due to comfort eating which I am having problem controlling it. <BR> I still go swimming twice a week but not going to gym class as I am doing a crochet course(i wanted to do a Nordic walking course but for the 2nd time it was cancelled ... Wed, 5 Oct 2016 14:04:57 EST Stressful day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6103086 Been doing quite well on my diet but yesterday was not good. It started early when I forgot my bank cards, then dropped a large tub of yogurt, forgot money for my gym membership and to top it all Michael collapsed in Nottingham , he was taken to hospital and at first they wanted to keep him in but they did let come home. <BR> Thank goodness today has been normal, I went swimming and did 40 lengths not bad to say I was tired. Tue, 23 Feb 2016 16:10:44 EST Weekends http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6101297 Since I last weighted myself(January sometime) I have lost 4 pounds mostly in the last week as I cut out most sweet stuff and diet coke(did have a couple), I am keeping sweets stuff for the weekend only, trouble is I visited my mum today and she put too much sweet stuff out and we came back with a tub of Maltesers so will try to resist. <BR> Doing quite a lot of exercise and when the weather cheers up will do more walking, I have a trip to London coming up(Saturday 5th March) but as it is on... Sun, 21 Feb 2016 13:57:28 EST Giving it another go http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6058902 I am yet again back on my diet, I find it really difficult to keep positive at times(I am a carer and this gets me down at times) but I do not want to go into my 60's being overweight, I am a nibbler and comfort eater and will do my best to overcome this. <BR> I do a fair amount of exercise swimming, aqua jog, exercise class and walking(when will it stop raining). <BR> My Christmas was quiet but OK(we have no family), I look forward to getting back into my routine again. <BR> Happy New Year... Sun, 3 Jan 2016 12:45:30 EST Not done very well yet http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6033694 I have had a couple of difficult weeks keeping to my diet and exercise(been hard getting into my stride after the chest infection) but hope I am doing better now, still finding swimming a bit hard but aqua and the gym were both good yesterday. <BR> Rather annoyingly one of my hearing aids is not working, I did go and get it fixed last Friday but he only cleaned it out and said it was working but it is not, I cannot get again to the hospital until the 16th of next month, it is maddening. <BR> ... Tue, 17 Nov 2015 12:56:56 EST Holidays and chest infections http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6023240 It has not been good recently as I had a bad chest infection and Michael is once again very low. <BR> We did have a good few days away on the Isle of Wight, I visited a Roman Villa and I met some friends. <BR> Michael had been down until about a week before and he went down again a few days after we came back, I have just given up with him as over the years I have tried so many different things and none really work. Now I just think of myself and what I need. I have asked for help and been... Thu, 29 Oct 2015 15:06:19 EST Elaine's health http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6004464 Well yet again I have fell by the wayside, I have put on a little weight about 3-4 pounds but the main problem is comfort and evening eating. I am restarting my food diary and this morning I printed off some food diary sheets for the BHF web site, I will be doing my best to stick to 1300 calories. <BR> I am to have two hearing aids not the usual ones as they will only pick up certain tones as my main problem is when I am in a group, I am also having pains in my hands but not too bad yet. <B... Sat, 26 Sep 2015 13:36:15 EST Day out http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5963769 I had a lovely day out in York on Saturday and visited two great places, one being the Quilt Museum and there was a beautiful exhibition of quilts some by Kaffe Fasset. <BR> I also visited the Treasurers House which was fascinating and I had a tour of the attics. <BR> Diet wise I am not doing as well as I would like as feeling very stressed(don't often feel anything else). Just about keeping up with my exercise and I have rejoined a healthy heart class which feels better for me at the moment... Mon, 20 Jul 2015 13:17:52 EST Having problems http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5955440 Once again not been on for a while. We went on holiday in mid June and it was really good, we had a week in Torquay and then I went on a day trip to the Cotswolds. But Michael has not been in an up mood very much recently and feel lucky that we did manage to go on holiday. <BR> Unfortunately I put on 4 pounds over this time and now I am having trouble losing it again which is mostly down to comfort eating I believe, I have kept up my exercise routine. <BR> I would love to go back to Weight ... Sat, 4 Jul 2015 14:32:58 EST Hello Everyone http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5924307 Yet again I have let myself down, I have gained a few pounds mostly though comfort eating, I know it is bad but just cannot help myself. I have been exercising(when Bank Holidays allow it) and I try to go 2-3 a week, I am doing well with swimming as I mostly do 34-40 lengths with i think is good, before hand I go to the gym and do about 40 mins to hour. <BR> Thu, 7 May 2015 13:29:56 EST I did not realise it had been so long http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5880506 Unfortunately for the last 2+ weeks I have a chest infection so not done much, I did go swimming a couple of times but could only manage 30 mins, I have not followed my diet at all and I have done some comfort eating. <BR> I have decided that I must get back to my routine and diet but it will take a few weeks, I am worried that I may put all the weight I have lost over the last 2-3 years and I don't want that. From tomorrow I am doing my food diary again as it is a big help. Sun, 22 Feb 2015 12:17:13 EST I'm still around http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5817805 I am still here and thought I had better add to my blog. Life is still the same for me but I try to keep busy going to the gym and swimming, not doing much walking at the moment as the weather is so damp and miserable, I am also wary of going some places on my own as not so many people out. <BR> I am sill struggling weight wise but am am determined to get to my target of 10st 7lbs before my 60th birthday in 2017. Stress is my downfall but I am staying positive. Sun, 16 Nov 2014 14:47:21 EST Trying again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5796843 I am yet again starting my diet. I just not have had the motivation to bother much for the last 3-4 months, I really need to get back on it as I weighed myself last Friday and I had put on a pound I no it does not sound like a lot but 1 becomes 2 then 3 so need to nip it in the bud now. <BR> I am doing swimfit and swimming on Tuesday and Friday it is aqua fit and swimming and I walk about 45 mins everyday to the village and back and sometimes twice. <BR> I don't think my diet is too bad, I j... Sun, 12 Oct 2014 13:21:14 EST Thank you http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5784842 I would like to thank everyone for the support as you have given me renewed energy. <BR> I mostly struggle because of my caring role which I have been doing for well over 10 years now. <BR> Over the last 2-3 years I have lost over 2 stones(it is probably nearer 3) which has been helped by being given a grant for a gym membership which I really enjoy especially the swimming, I am not using the gym at the moment as the pool I usually use is closed for repairs so I am using another leisure cent... Mon, 22 Sep 2014 15:00:24 EST not good http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5783509 I am not feeling all good and feel just like giving up, weighed myself yesterday which has not helped as I had put on a pound, need something yo give a bit umph.

It is the same with diet coke drinking, I did manage to go with out for a week but then felt really stressed so gave in. <BR> I still going to my aqua classes but not the the gym as they have closed the pool at my usual leisure centre for repairs, I am a... Sun, 14 Sep 2014 15:54:06 EST Holiday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5733137 We have just come back from a weeks holiday in Torquay(for the Americans it is on the South coast of England) and we had a great week. the hotel, food, weather and the coach company were all good. We visited Plymouth, Exeter, several beautiful churches, had a ride on a steam train, visited Agatha Chisties holiday home, a model Village and several great museums. <BR> The only problem was the taxi coming home they forgot about us and another couple but a quick phone call solved the problem. <... Sun, 6 Jul 2014 14:02:17 EST Holiday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5717840 Not really sure what to say as every time I am on here I seem to be moaning but I am usually a happy sort of person, I don't seem to be coping as well as I use to. <BR> My main problem is Michael's mental health is my main problem as find I get tired so easily now and he takes a lot out of me, also when he is like this I get nothing back from him, <BR> I had a melt down a couple of weeks ago when a friend let me down over a ticket(London trip) that I thought that I had sold her, the next time... Sat, 14 Jun 2014 12:21:04 EST Good Times http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5702861 I have 2 brilliant days out in the last week the first was to Bakewell on Monday and the weather was very hot, I love to walk around the market, I also went up to the small museum and the church. <BR> My 2nd trip was to London yesterday, we did have some heavy rain on the way down and a couple of showers while there but it did not spoil the day, me and a friend went to Camden Market(a little disappointing as there was a lot of new age type stalls) but I was pleased I went, we then went to Cov... Sun, 25 May 2014 14:36:55 EST To my friends http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5691379 I had what was to be my last counseling session today but it has been extended by one week which is good. <BR> I have not lost any weight, well I did but then I put it back on but at least it it is still a lot less than I was, I am trying my best to stay on track but it is not easy as I feel so low and very stressed, I am trying to stay positive so I keep telling myself that I will lose it. <BR> Michael was up for nearly 10 weeks so it is even more disappointing that once again he is very de... Fri, 9 May 2014 14:56:18 EST Meal out http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5679481 We had a meal out yesterday of fish chips and mushy peas which was lovely, we usually go to a cafe run by Mencap and some of the services users serve in the cafe. <BR> We then went to see Dial M for Murder which was very good. <BR> I hope that you understand that it is just a slight blip in my diet plans as I am still very determined to get there but probably later rather than sooner. <BR> Thank you for all the support. <BR> <em>247</em> <em>252</em> Thu, 24 Apr 2014 12:34:42 EST Swimming and weight loss http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5677828 Hi <BR> I have today been swimming and I managed about 30 lengths and I then weighed myself and I am now 11st 5lbs which is the lowest I have been for some time, My weight loss is slow but think I will reach my target of 11st by my holiday in late June, I will then set a new target of 10st 7 lbs for Christmas. Tue, 22 Apr 2014 11:10:25 EST Busy Bsy Busy http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5659369 I have had a busy few weeks as Michael is on some new tablets and they really seem to be helping. We have changed our car for a Smart car which is great and so economical, We have had a trip to The Workhouse at Southwell (National Trust) which is a fascinating pace to visit and last week we had a trip to the theatre to see a comedy play, this is plus our normal routine of my groups and Michael going to MIND. <BR> I just have to get back to my diet now as for the last few weeks I have let thin... Sat, 29 Mar 2014 14:09:06 EST Good Days http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5650062 Over the last week I have had several good days and I just hope Michael can keep it up. He is getting a lot of help now from the mental health team and has a CPN. <BR> I had a great last Thursday in Chesterfield, mostly just looking around, it was a lovely sunny day and then yesterday I did a similar thing in Peterborough and again it was so sunny and quite warm. <BR> Been to aqua jog and swimming this morning and also weighed myself and I am now 11st 6 lbs which is a loss of about 8 pound s... Mon, 17 Mar 2014 14:59:44 EST It is nearly spring http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5644622 yet a again it is a while since I was here, I have had a bad few months but hopefully now that Michael is on some new tablets things will improve. <BR> I have managed to lose a few more pounds and I am convinced that I will get to my goal weight of 10 stone in time for my 60th birthday in 2017(hope to do it before but I am in no rush. The new group is helping but unfortunately the lady who started it has not been around so much as her husband has cancer. <BR> I am starting to see a differen... Mon, 10 Mar 2014 15:46:30 EST New group going well http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5606190 I have now been to the new group twice and along with <em>252</em> it is helping, it is just good to have someone local to me who want to lose weight. First week I lost 1 and a half pounds but last week I put half back on but did not do as much exercise as usual. <BR> I am now doing about 12 exercise and gym classes every month plus walking(the weather has been awful so not done as much as I would like) <BR> I am drinking more water, keeping a food diary, eating very healthily. <BR> Mich... Sun, 26 Jan 2014 13:23:38 EST New slimming group http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5586920 We have started a new slimming group in our village, it is just a group that we run ourselves and as it is held in a local Christian centre where our craft group is held it is free. We will have a weekly weigh in, a food diary to record our eating habits and we can swap recipes and advice. <BR> I am all for any support I can get, my starting weigh is 11st 12 lbs which means that I put on a couple pounds over Christmas which is not too bad seeing as I was not as active as usual. Today I was ... Wed, 8 Jan 2014 13:05:51 EST Hoped I was doing better http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5582885 I have not yet weighed myself since Christmas but my eating is not doing too badly and I have cut right down on diet coke. <BR> I wanted to be able to go to the gym and swimming tomorrow but Michael's CPN is coming so may not be able to make it and on Tuesday I am going for my mammogram on Tuesday so not be able to go for a walk. I did manage to go for a walk this morning and did 14000 steps. <BR> I have been feeling very sick again which I believe is a migraine. Sun, 5 Jan 2014 11:36:16 EST Doing well http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5564250 I am doing well at least that is what the nurse at my GP's says, I had my asthma check last Tuesday and my breathing is the best since 2006, my weight is down 10 pounds and she says to keep on whatever it is that I am doing. <BR> I wonder if anyone who looks at my page would do me a favour and look at this page by Laura LLEARYEITNIEAR she has not been on long and not many people are reading her page so I would like to give her a bit of encouragement, Laura has done a brilliant video and it is... Sat, 14 Dec 2013 13:30:36 EST Normal life http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5546156 Well once again I have not been following my diet but my weight is staying steady, I am still going to the gym and aqua jog and I am going to apply for respite money again so I can get the yearly membership. <BR> On Sunday I am going to Harrogate for the knitting and stitching show, the trip is free apart from a bit towards bus fare and we have been putting away a little every week for spending money(I have about £50 pounds) but I do not intend to spend much as I have plenty of yarn. <BR> Mic... Wed, 20 Nov 2013 13:10:42 EST Thanks to all my SPARK friends http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5534939 I would like to thank you all for the comments, I don't know the results yet but I have been given hope. <BR> Other news, I am still struggling with Michael but Lets Talk Wellbeing(NHS) is helping a little, I have to be stronger and start saying no as I am told that I am being manipulated a lot and this is what is getting me down so much, he is not trying to do anything and I am letting him get away with this so I am going to stick up for myself more.
