I went to the appointment about the weight loss clinic. It was embarresing to say the least. Went to reception and she said to take a seat with the rest of the them. They might as well have got the branding irons out, a group of people sat on chairs (I wasn't the biggest but not far from it), in front of a big sign saying "Adult Weight Loss Clinic", all segregated off from the rest of the waiting area. Then when they came out, they marched us all through the waiting room, therefore through the other waiting patients, into a room together. The plan sounds ok, and very well managed, but all appointments are on a Monday, Tuesday or Weds morning, which is no use for me when i'll be at work.
I've had a crap Xmas and New Year. I smashed my oven door a few days before Xmas, and the oven has been knackered for ages anyway, so need a new one. I cried every day, except Xmas day, from Christmas Eve to New Years Eve. The first Xmas without Barry, and it was emotional, he was always a big part of Christmas Day. On Boxing Day the boiler packed up, so we have no heating or hot water. British Gas have condemned it, we need a new one. Not impressed, so no oven, no heating, no hot water. Grrrreat!
Also, I had a cold 2 weeks before Xmas, then a stomach upset that lasted almost a week, then started with a chest infection on Xmas Eve, which is ongoing. Aaaaand Kieron started being sick at 8.30pm on Xmas Eve and is still not 100% now. It's awful trying to clean up after him with no hot water too!
I told myself, New Year New Start. Got to get back to losing weight. But i'm struggling to feel any different/more positive. I am going to stop with the binge eating though. I've started doing cross stitch again, so it keeps my hands busy in an evening instead of reaching for food. I'm going to weigh myself, but I have a feeling i'll be over the 23 st limit on the Wii :(
Hope everyone has had a better time than me over the festive period! Thanks Tim for your Christmas Wishes, which I have only just seen :)
