I fell off my perch :-(

I sailed though last year and lost over 8 stone DESPITE my darling mother in law dying of cancer and being with her in the hospice until the end.

And then my mother 'got' demntia and had her living with us and attended to her needs. No biggie since I cook dinner so one more is whatever. Same with washing etc.

And through all that I really never wavered on my weight-loss journey.

And I got to target and was there for a long time.

Then life threw me a me the biggest curveball ... my darling husband of nearly 38 years was diagnosed with cancer. I really really never expected the surgeon to report that to us, I had thought he was gonna say all well.

It seems I DO comfort eat :-( I never really knew I did.

I fell fully off my maintain perch and gained ... and gained. I think I put on about 9lbs (which might not sound massive to some reading this but to me it really was coz I could feel it in my clothes).

I never told my group at SW what turfed me off my perch, just I was. I did tell 2 women I met through SW and our consultant and they were SO supportive,

And now I hope first of all my husband will be ok (his mri to check the cancer hasn't spread and his consultant appointment is a week before my thing for district woman of the year thing) and I hope I am able to get back on my perch and keep at my slimmer self.

Btw, I haven't told many about hubs cancer and only shairing here x

You have survived what has been thrown at you so far, through each heartbreaking thing, and I have a feeling both you and hubby will get through this also.
I hope everything goes well with the MRI and it's good news

Thanks Sarah. I THINK I am back on track. I gave myself a hard kick up the bum on Sunday and got back on track. It was the realisation that I was over my target weight zone and that the sw woty comp is fast approaching and I really don't want to let my group down by falling at the first hurdle because of something I could have avoided. But that was after a weekend of kebab!!! pizza!!! cake!!! etc. Since Sunday I have been super focused and it helps keep my mind busy too. Managed to have a pound and a half off on Thursday by being super aware Sun-Wed. Hubs MRI tomorrow and I will be taking fruit & salad for the trip and not visiting any t/as! Obviously we are hoping for the best result from the MRI but wont hear til Tuesday.

Thanks x Have to do a 9 hour round trip again (like today) to get the results. But in other news, I took a packed lunch and didn't give in to buy a burger from the chain that is only in that city and 4 hours from me :-D
