A fresh, positive start

Wow, it really has been ages!  And how things have changed.  Since I last posted, there have been so many changes that I could say my life has turned upside down – in the best of ways. Firstly with mum on the brink of selling her house, I decided that it was time for me…

Well, that was a really good start.

Not. Clearly. I am going to be honest about how I’m doing or there’s not much point in terms of my own recovery. I just couldn’t do it, could I? It had to be a takeaway. And because it’s not a restaurant I know I couldn’t decide and had to order a shedload of stuff. …

Let’s try that again, shall we?

Hey there!  Long time, no see!  How the devil are you? Me?  Oh fine, fine … you know, just living the dream. That’s what we all say, isn’t it.  We say what we’re expected to say.  We might vary a little from that pattern with close friends and family, partners, etc. but generally we’re a…

The sugar won … this time

(Short version) Oh God. I feel sick. Why did I do it? All the other questions that come after a fall … Again, I feel sick …

Better, but work in progress

Weigh in this morning – half a stone off.  Get in! It’s been a pretty good week actually.  I decided last weekend (and last post) that sugar really is my enemy.  So I’ve really focused on planning healthy meals – albeit repetitive – and making my lunch the night before.  I don’t think I’ve ever…

Uh oh, a wake up call …

Warning – not pretty! The brain is a funny thing, isn’t it?  We think we’re getting somewhere and then something in the back of our heads goes “Nah, this is going too well – let’s throw a spanner”.  That’s what happened to me this week – I was not expecting it, and it wasn’t welcome….

The wheels fell off

I have a confession to make. I have an eating disorder and I’m addicted to sugar.  Junk food too, but mainly sugar. And last week was too much of everything. There, I said it. I’m admitting to this because I need to – a big part of having an ED (Eating Disorder) is secrecy and…

Flapjacks and tigers and bears, oh my.

Hmmmm. Struggling today. I’ve been having a bit of a rough time lately with my back/ neck/ right shoulder after managing to rotate bits of my spine (Lord only knows how) and cause immense pain in an old whiplash injury. So far, so bad. But mending. I stopped on my way into work yesterday and…

Numbers, numbers

Woohoo!  4lb off!  Well OK 3.7lb, but who’s counting … everyone rounds up, right? Week one … and I’m actually surprisingly proud of myself. I managed to stick within my SmartPoints allowance (Weight Watchers) easily, by shopping well and planning.  I’m a stubborn so and so, and if I make up my mind to do something…
