Wow that was an interesting 6 months

Wednesday, December 14, 2016

On the 1st July I was made up I had lost a fantastic 85lbs and was looking forward to a well earned holiday in Italy. I said to my family I'm going to enjoy myself and not worry about weight gain but when I get back I back on it to reach my goal of 120Lb total loss.

We had an amazing holiday my favourite of all time - and ohh my goodness the Italians know how to do food.

As expected and anticipated I put on 9 lbs - no surprise and well within my target.

Returning home I was ready to go and get back on track.

Wham - in the week following our holiday my wife (the love of my life) visits the doctors and after several visits to different specialist during the week she is diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Our world collapses

As always in times of stress I eat.

The prognosis was good its early stage Breast cancer and treatment starts.

Two weeks later I forced my self on the scales (I had been too cowardly to do so before) and there you go I'm now 15lbs heavier than I was in July.

My wife was so upset that I had put weight back on and started to blame herself and apologised for causing me the stress that made me put weight on.

I could not believe this! My failings my weakness my issues and she thinks its her fault - no wonder I love her so much.

I told her to not worry about me and to worry about herself I will sort myself out.

Today I have finally lost weight again and weigh less than I did in July.

Far more importantly my wife's treatment is over shes recovering and as far as we know is cancer free.

I am so happy.

Seasons greetings to everyone.
