Not Happy (with myself only)

A gain this week. Expected after Easter I know especially by me but it has hit home this morning that I will never be able to relax in my eating which is going to make for a very dull life in some ways especially with the amount of socialising and entertaining we do. Looks like I am going to be the designated driver for the rest of my life.

I am moaning, arent I?

Stop it - there are millions of people worse off then me. Little problems really. Back on the horse/bike (or whatever I have fallen off) and off I go again.

No gardening done this week but I have cleaned two rooms of my house (excluding blinds, windows and curtains), rearranged furniture (with hopefully minimal scratching of the floor), taken a heap of stuff to Lifeline and managed to keep those two rooms tidy (can be a nearly impossible task with DD and DH and his piles of papers).

Lunch today with a sister, lunch tomorrow with friends. Engagement party tomorrow night and of course the rugby on Saturday night for another dose of disappointment.

Here's to a better week next week


  1. Yes, there are people who would love to have your problems. Yes, there are people worse off. But so what?! Do you think Donald Trump/Nicole Kidman/John Howard give much thought to poor middle class you to prevent them from having a bad day?? LOL While it is good to be aware that you are fortunate, it's not going to change anything, and I don't see having empathy for others and improving your own lot being mutually exclusive.

    So, where is this weight loss gig falling over? Are your goals realistic? When I met you (yes, ages ago now), you looked great to me - are you really that different now? How do you think you would feel at "goal"? What else can you do to make you feel that way now? These questions may be all way off the mark, but something for you to think about anyway.

    See you soon!

  2. Hi Julie, I know how you feel - I know that this will be a contstant battle for me all my life, but I know it's one that I can't ignore like I used to, so I just need to keep plugging away at it.. I'm never going back to where I came from! Hope you are enjoying your holiday! Keep smiling.. chris xx
