Thanks for letting me share my feelings, I think I just needed to say it to people that understood how I felt, I appreciate your words of encouragement - I won't give up, I'll soldier on. And look forward to a decent shift in the scales next week.
Linda, my exercise routine is muscle strengthening exercises and a small amount of walking when I feel up to it (i.e. not every day), I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Please don't think that I'm using this as an excuse - if I do too much exercise I wind up not being able to get out of bed for days. Last year I lost 9kgs by eating healthy with minimal exercise probably even less than I'm doing now so I know its possible to shed kgs, it just happens a little slower than if I could exercise like everyone else. I have since put that 9kgs + back on (too much takeaways and alcohol) but that's another story, one I'm not likely to do again.
Thanks again for everyone's support, much appreciated.
