11 Dec


I have been gone for a little while and had the blog hidden for reasons I can’t even remember.

But I have been so busy lately I haven’t had time to come and do anything about it, but hopefully I’m back.

Although I have no idea what to do anymore.

I do believe Mr Barry was right, as much as I hate to admit it, I cannot get below 17 and a half stone.

No matter what I do.

So I’ve just kind of given up the last few weeks and as I was away last weekend, I didn’t even care!

We finally went on our holiday that we have wanted since about May. We booked it when I was seeing the Psycho, but my mother came with us instead and even though I’m not a fan of 80s music we had the most amazing weekend!

I loved every damn moment of it. I met some amazing people, had some amazing times and I am going back in March for a 90s weekend!

It cannot come soon enough.

I walked and danced my feet off all weekend, I hardly sat down, I did over 20,000 steps every day and by Sunday night they were on fire! Haha

I wish it was last Friday so I could do it all again, but sadly its not.

All the people I met, would not believe I was 39, I loved all of them, the Brummies (oh how I miss you!) the Bristol boy, Pete and Neil and Stef! Ugh being home sucks!

But pictures make me happy!

Soon I hope!

Don’t make me stop!

30 Jun

Everyone is telling me to stop exercising at the moment. But I can’t. In 15 days I will have no choice, but right now I need to keep going and pushing myself.

Yes I’m in agony, I can’t even touch my stomach today because I pushed so hard on my hernia yesterday to get it back in so I didn’t go to hospital, but I am so worried I have ripped something or done some damage to my bypass scar. I can’t believe how painful it is, but I really do not want to stop exercising while I still can. I will use it as an excuse to just give up and I don’t want that, especially when I’m enjoying it at the moment.
I have no idea how long I will have to give up for if the operation does go ahead, so I can’t see me losing any more weight for the next few months, which is very upsetting.

We have booked an 80s weekend in Butlins for the end of the year, Clare and her husband and I am so looking forward to it, would have liked to lose two more stone for it, but I can’t see that happening now. I am not an 80s fan, but Clare really is and to just be able to get away, it will be my first holiday in about 20 years, it might only be Butlins, but it’s going to brilliant with good company and some alcohol, I don’t drink very much, so I am really looking forward to this!

It’s amazing what I have done the last few months,  I have to keep remembering all the time.

This time last year I would never have met new friends I would have been too ashamed and going to London would have been completely out of bounds for me. So to walk 22,000 steps without much break was surreal to me. On Friday we are going to see a comedian in Tring and I’m so excited for it.  It’s a whole new world for me and I’m loving every moment.

I have met so many new and inspirational people recently and I wouldn’t know any of them without surgery so I feel very blessed right now to have them in my life.
