Quick Catch Up

I hope you have all had a good week. I have had a much better week and am starting to slowly feel better. I have starting taking anti-depressant medication and I think so far my doctor has gotten the dose right. I have also been in touch with a councilor and so I am on the right track!

On the weight front I have lost another 900gms - so now I have lost 14.7kgs. Mike has also weighed in with some success this week and is 200gms off 20 kilos. So proud!

So thats the wrap up for this week. Still working hard - but being kind to myself. Now I just need to get back into sewing. I havent sewn in ages and its been because of everything else happening. So I really need to get back into it. It will make me happy I know!

I hope you have all had a good week and have a great weekend.

Time to Deal With the Emotional

One of the things I was determined to do this year was fix myself physically and emotionally. As many of you can see I have the physical underway but the emotional has reared its ugly head again.

I was taken to hospital in an ambulance two weeks ago with what they now think was a panic attack. I have been estranged from my family for a while now and I recently found out some information about them that I have found hard to process.

Basically all of this has culminated in me seeing my doctor and I am now taking some medication and will be seeing a therapist in the near future. I am hoping to finally deal with the baggage I have and hopefully move forward happily.

As for my weight I have pretty much been hovering around the same weight of 103.7. Thats fine - I have not been to the gym as much (I also have a sick son so some late nights have been had)as I would like but I am being conscious of what I eat and so that's been working well. I would like to have lost more weight but we will have to see what weigh in day brings. As long as I dont gain Im happy. I also have to be kind to myself - I have enough stress and pressure without hating myself for weight issues.

So as I always say - onwards and upwards :)
