    Well I am trying! Back under 200lbs was a massive deal to me. So trying to keep going... Stumbled a bit over Easter though. Need more discipline! lol

    Ah no no.... it's not the actual JOB that is wrong, it IS an absolutely worthy job that I enjoy and dedicated many unpaid training hours towards.. it's that its utterly un-valued.

    Childcare pays like dirt. But costs lots to put your children in it.

    So if I where to go back to any form of employment, I would also have to pay the full time costs of childcare, leaving me with on average when we worked things out, about £50 a month profit... AND missing out on raising my own child (whilst looking after other peoples) and not having time to cook like I enjoy, or the time to care for and help renovate our home.

    It's an absolute no brainer. My job is valueless monetary.
    Not emotionally or socially. But they don't make up for working for virtually nothing or being outside of my home and roles I choose to want to fulfil.

    So I am feeling somewhat lost in what I should do when my daughter is in school in year and a half... because even paying for after school care, and then being late for dinner, homework help etc... that doesn't add up to enough gains either.

    I am a high level trained manager in childcare, and done nursery nursing. But thinking about social worker... I don't know really. Still processing how I feel about being valueless...

    thanks for the comment, on my blog.
    yes, i am still around, i dont get time to get on sp as much these days, but im still here, struggling daily.
    have had a very minor setback, nothing to get bent out of shape over, but just enough to have to start amping it up and working harder.
    hopefully i will start having some positive results soon.
