I'm back. I slipped of the face of the earth around 19 June, went back to my self-destructive habits and return to you 3.3kgs heavier
Its no excuse but I have been going through a particularly stressful period, if its not bad enough suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (for 2 years now) and therefore being unable to exercise and more importantly get out of the house, the insurance company that was paying me income protection has decided I"m fit enough to return to work (even though my doctors say no way) so they haven't paid me for 12 weeks while they "reassess my entitlements to income protection". Any way, I digress.
I find when I am put under extreme stress and especially since I reduce the stress by going for a big long fast walk or pounding a punching bag etc, I turn to my old friend, chocolate, and lots of it. I'm sure my story is familiar to many.
Anyway, I'm back, a little heavier but all the more determined to get this weight off once and for all, I have about 12 kgs to lose and would love to see 2/3 of that off by Summer - oh how good would it be to wear nice clothes this summer instead of wanting to cover up.
I hope everyone is well and still kicking goals weightloss wise. Welcome to all the newbies,
