Good Morning all..yes sleep is not happening AGAIN aghhhhh!

Hiya everyone,
Another night counting the sheep for me and now even the sleep are sleeping and Im still awake!!!!!!
For those of you who dont know I have bad arthritis in my back and now have liver problems which Im worried about so thats keeping me awake as well.
I have a scan on Sunday for my liver much the same as a baby scan so Im told....should be interesting! I then go into see a doctor on the 13th Feb to see what the problem is. I had blood taken last wednesday and got called today to tell me they want it done again as they have found something in it again....the worse thing is they dont tell you what they have found just leave you guessing!haha
The diet has went well today no hiccups..hasnt it been a quick week?? Well it has been for me this will be week 4 on the scales!

Breakfast - toast on laughing cow (old faithful haha)

Lunch - 2 triangle sandwiches with ham,cheese and pickle (hubby pinched other half) 1 scotch pancake with raspberry jam

Dinner - Chicken salad with oven baked home made chips,cart d ore light vanilla ice cream and sugar free jelly.

Night time - ready brek and tunnocks snowball

Saved 1.5 so all in all a jolly good day!

Going to a body shop party tomorow night...really dislike these kinds of parties now! Me and my friends went through a stage when we were having at least one selling party of some kind a feel you have to buy something and its always something you dont need Id much rather pop the £20 in my holiday pot!
please forgive any spelling mistakes...Im tired lol

After talking to kim tonight I realise that maybe I havent put the fattest of pics on my profile...I am fat in everyone you understand but they perhaps dont quite catch it lol

Soooooooooooooo.....I have decided to pop the picture on from my halloween party this year that really took me aback.....when I saw it I thought woooo my chin is not that big!!

It was from this picture I decided enough is enough and NO more!!
I have always been the fat little sister or big sherry...never just Sherry! I remember not so long ago my mum handing me a tshirt that totally sucked by the way and said 'theres a t shirt for you I bought it but it is too big for me!' It hurt me so much.
I have since noticed that she actually does it alot....has little digs about my weight like youve always been a big lass,constantly asks if u want biscuits even tho she knows m slimming.
I dont want to be that big lass anymore I want to just be me! xx

hi everyone,

When we started back on weight watchers on our first trip to asda for the weekly shop ..I said 'right then..what sweet u wanting for the film saturday?' Hubby said 'none lets just try and give the saturday chocs a miss and break the habit!'

My god the shock and horror must have been all over my face...a whole weekend with no chocolate,this was going to be hell!

We managed it tho watched a film and just had a normal night like we would have through the week.

Our normal thing would have been wahey the weekend and we would have blown all the good work we had done through the week.

We are 3 weeks in now and not missing choc I mean heavy duty choc!! lol
Todays eating has went really good..another thing we miss is the good old take away so at the weekends ive been making meals with the take away theme...tonight we had chicken biryani and it was really fabby!!

night all

When people let you down...

Today was a good day untill night time lol

Dont really know where to start..the eating has been fine havent done anything there so dont worry haha

A family member let me down today and it really hurt me..hubby said I was being silly and I should be more thick skinned but then I wouldnt be me!

I feel like some people are just take take take and never give anything in return and that sadens and really hurts me.

We have two dogs who are I suppose the apple of my them dearly they have seen me through alot with my illness's if I was sad or sore or even just weepy my wee Tara was there with her little wet nose at my face to let me know she was there.

Its very hard for me and my hubby to trust people to watch them as I constantly worry about them when we are on holiday to the point where we didnt have a holiday abroad last year. This year I asked my neice and her fiancee who we trust very much and knew would treat the dogs well..she said yes no problem and we were happy knowing that the dogs would be ok.

Tonight she 'text' (which is worse) and said her fiance didnt want the dogs as didnt want the responsibilty.......I am sure there are people reading this saying stupid woman but I was soooo hurt!

We have done alot for my neice and I felt really let down. Ive also had a really bad few years health wise and she knows how ill I am and she couldnt just not be selfish this once and help us for a was bad enough they has a new years party and didnt think to ask us then came for new years day dinner..ate it said how great it was then left lol

Dog kennels really are not an option for hubby just mentioned it and i was in floods of tears...maybe its nearly my time of the month but the thought of driving away and leaving them in a kennel just is not good!!

Anyway rant over and if anyone is still reading this thankyou!!
