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're a fighter, to say the least. What a journey - getting into the shape you want and becoming fitter is hard enough, let alone all you've gone through.

I'm sorry for your loss and your recent struggles.

We all have a vice of some sort, it could be cigarettes, booze, food, whatever.

The way I see it is that if you can lose weight and get in shape in the midst of all that was going on, then you can rise up and do it again.

Try finding something to do instead of eat when you feel you need comfort - I find push ups work for me when I feel big urges to eat, as well as going walking. I've also found that engaging in a good conversation with someone I hold close is great, too.

You got this.

Thanks Harry. I think I have got it again :-) I feel much more in control again and the helpful comments and support I received here has helped no end. I find it hard to tell people in 'real life' things like I said here. I can be very closed shop about personal details so just being able to open up here has helped. Today is weigh in day and I really hope that I have a decent little loss, we will see. I have the bit between my teeth as opposed to the chocolate and am very focused on getting exactly back to my target and hope to achieve it by next Thursday. :-)

No worries at all - keep it up!

I've recently launched an e-Book on diet - if you'd like a look I'll send you a copy!
