So, a few of my friends have convinced me to join Slimming World. Something I've been recommended is, go through my day accurately writing down everything I eat and drink BEFORE I try and teach myself about free foods and Syns. Do it for a day o... Read more

Not necessarily in my weigh loss goals, but in my life in general. I've become more aware of my diet; I think of the number on the scales, rising and rising; I've been aware of my weight gain for a couple of months, and REALLY aware in the... Read more

Been away a while, huh? So, a couple of weeks after the last post I had to leave my job to look after my son. Shortly after that, Richard shifted significantly from "friend" to "foe" and a nice young man stepped in to help me get over him. ... Read more

At least, I think I am! I'm not sure. But still. I hope so. Anyways, onward; the reason I haven't been posting here so much is because, from December 21st, I've been writing Morning Pages. This is a creative exercise similar to a jour... Read more

I've had so much support, both here and elsewhere, and I just wanna say thank you to everyone who has helped and is helping me through this time; it's so genuinely appreciated. My greatest fear and source of stress is being alone, and now I'm st... Read more

Well, me and the late Mr. Man have decided that we make awesome friends, and to stick with it. We are exceptionally depressed that we are breaking up, but we have each other for comfort and support, and we've helped each other with the depressin... Read more
December 20th - When you leave your man
Tuesday, December 20, 2011      3 comments

We were living together for three years. He's the first man I truly loved, and the one I trusted most. I alienated myself from my family for him, and lost most of my friends in defense of him. We were planning to get married this coming summer. ... Read more

Well, the relationship is officially over. I've tried to discuss it, I've been attacked, sworn at, and threatened. I've finally just drawn a line under it and decided enough is enough, which has obviously incurred an even greater amount of abuse... Read more

...to bring you an important announcement. Well, if my husband-to-be having an affair is an important announcement. I don't know anymore. ... Read more
December 15th - Meh

I'm currently caught somewhere between suicidally depressed and hopeless, and the forced understanding that self pity costs nothing, and is worth just as much. At the end of the day being miserable about the stuff in my life won't help anything;... Read more

Tuesday, December 13, 2011      2 comments

There are a lot of good things in my life right now, and a lot of others which are significantly less good. I've been working hard to remind myself that complaining about the bad ones won't change them, that there is nothing serious and impassib... Read more

I'm so stressed and overwhelmed! I have so much to do, so much to sort out, I'm coming under attack from my son's dad and I'm working almost constantly for the next couple of weeks; I have no time to get everything under control and when I do ha... Read more

I know I've found myself posting lots of "Here I am!" posts recently before disappearing again, but hey, let's see what happens this time... First off, for those who were following my progress in the fast; it went pretty well, apart from on... Read more

Tuesday, September 27, 2011      1 comments

Not doing too badly today; my energy is up, my cold is gone (although I still have a slight lingering cough) and my neck is still slightly stiff but I'm up to doing my exercises again without anxiety. I've done some of a resistance band workout,... Read more

It's trickier than I thought! Phew! Yesterdays lunch was a baked potato with sweetcorn and cashew nuts (the only things from the local shop that didn't have added crap). Dinner was rice with sweetcorn, cashew nuts, broccoli, carrots and ra... Read more
