Carol - when I lived near you I got my hair done at Aphrodite in the Callendar Squre precinct - they were always really good with ideas and did a really good job.

Teel so you didn't say when you were going to purchase the hoover ?

Well if any of you have been over on the weekly weigh in you will see my news (gained 2lbs) I really don't know how that's happened - I'm not kidding myself I wonder if its something to do with my TOM, or as I like to call it TOY, as they're so infrequent!!

My weight watchers 'lady' is really scary and not particularly supportive, she assumes everyone is a liar and cheats, she's been a ww leader for 24 years and apparently has heard it all before!!! Wondering whether or not to go tonight because I don't think she'll believe me when I say I've been good. Last week my friend had lost half a pound and was devastated as she'd been really good - when she faxed her tracker to the leader she got a phone call saying that because it was all in the same pen, she could tell she'd just written it out and obviously it wasn't a true account of everything she'd eaten otherwise she'd have lost 3lbs!!

I've phoned Dave at work crying down the phone - he's coming home for lunch to give me a hug. What's the point in all this hard work if I've gained 2lbs

Oh dear Delaney. I am so sorry you are having such a bad time. I am sending you some happy smilies to warm you up...

I really do not like the sound of your ww group leader..she sounds a right perhaps she works on a hidden agenda....everyone dislikes her so much that they loose all the weight really quickly and don't have to go to her sessions anymore!!

I have just got home from my counselling session. It always opens up some box of painful experiences and I get home feeling like a wrung out dishcloth and want to fall into bed and oblivion for an hour or so.
But it is lunchtime....and I am hungry so I'm off to raid the cupboard.

Bye....love from Teel

Big hugs Deleaney - is there not another class you could go to - where the leader would be human. Sounds like this woman lost weight the 'old' WW way and has no understanding of how it is done now - did she lose a lot of weight ?

Don't worry about the 2lbs, bet it is something to do with that TOY

Thanks guys I needed that - Teel it sounds like you've had a worse day than me

I've been in a terrible state all day, talk about over-reaction!! Anyway I'm going to go and get on the scales and see what her's say - I've gone over and over my tracker and perhaps I've been eating some of the wrong things (whilst staying within my points) I've also noticed that I'm not eating as much fruit and veg as I did before.

You're right Carol the leader lost weight with WW 24 years ago and I know she's a right old BUT she is very motivational when she does her 'talk'. She also knows what it's like to have been obese, in my opinion, lots of these leaders have lost only a bit of weight, whilst I agree any weight loss is great, how can someone who had a couple of stone to lose help someone who has, say, 7 stone to lose - they've never had that daunting task have they?

The other reason I go there is the class is literally at the bottom of my road - the nearest after that is middle of the day in the next village.

Well I'm off to find the lightest clothes possible - I think a suntop, shorts and flip-flops should do it...

Delaney I hope you'll be wearing a nice thick coat on top of that lot to get to your meeting?? It's a tad cold to be going out in just that.

Glad I don't attend your meetings as I don't think I would keep quiet. I don't go to WW yet, but if the leader said some of those things I'd have a few things to tell her as well.

Have a lovely image of Delaney in flowery shorts, strappy bright yellow top and pink flip flops with an orange flower on the strap. All with a bright red, long woollen winter coat - lovely.

Made me smile.

Sure it won't be as bad as you think and no matter what we'll all be here for you.

what a day...

As I wrote earlier, I went to see my counsellor this morning....it left me feeling really depressed and tearful. My reflexologist came as usual and I said I wanted "gentle!" so she started on a metamorphic message, a really gentle feet, hands , neck and head massage..and it was not long before the tears started rolling....She is so lovely,knows just the right touch and word and encouragement to get me to allow myself to explode sometimes.The dog loves her,too!
Sometimes this burden of illness I have been saddled with seems all too great and I cannot see anyway through. All my friends are in their prime....children growing up,themselves staggering up their respective carreer ladders, going away on holidays....I am 38. I now have no carreer, I am single (I won't go into that) and feel I have no life to particularly look forward to. I have insulin dependant diabetes, a degenerating lumbar spine and this heart failure. If I just had one serious defect I might be able to handle life better, but I feel as if I have the whole****** lot!!

Sorry, girls. I did not mean to put all of that in...I will go away and come back a happier bunny.....

Just popped in to see how Delaney got on too. We are thinking of you and if she was horrible to you, we will all be at the class next week with you to tell her what we think of her, maybe even practise the hong knog phooey Karate kicks the boys have been teaching me !!!!!!!!!

{{{{{{{{HUG}}}}}}}

A big hug to everyone - few people need one today.

I have days like that, when nobody loves me and the whole world is against me and it is all going wrong. I have an ex-colleague who is always there for me with words of encouragement and ways of putting it all behind me and picking myself up = wish he was here now with his truthful and honest words of wisdom.

I am enjoying a can of cider - on points. Will need to watch for my fingers bloating up tomorrow.

Had a good swim, with the boys. I even managed to do about 6 lengths. Next week I'm not going in the water as Sean was worn out half way through his lesson, due to the carry on we had while Steven had his lesson, I think.

We can do this together, but I need all of you to keep me going.

Remember tomorrow is another day

well I think it has all been said Delaney...what a stupid thing for that woman to say about the tracker just being written down before it was sent in because it was all in the same pen...what rot....I have my journal complete with pen and I write things down as I eat them, it is always in the same pen... doesn't she understand some of us do things in a set way...we all have our own little habits and that is one of mine...I am with Leigh-r on this...if she said anything like that to me I would have a few things to say back.....You are right that someone who has only lost a couple of stone as opposed to someone who has lost several stones, cannot really understand the task involved, but that is no reason to assume that everyone is lying or cheating...she is supposed to be trained to understand and offer help and advice...not to just belittle people and make them feel bad....Now we all know how much TOM can affect our weight...she should be a little more understanding and sympathetic.
Sorry for the rant there, but I am one of those who has lost the several stones and I know only too well how some weeks I have been reduced to tears because I have gained weight when I know for a fact I have been so good...if someone had said those things to me at those times I would probably have slapped her

think its time for bed

have a good day tomorrow everyone

Ali

Thanks for all your comments you're all fantastic

Well, the news is I lost 1lb!!!!! Very confused but it put a smile on my face. I've decided to stop this weighing myself every morning (it's going to be hard I know) I will weigh myself every Wed morning for our weekly weigh in and then forget about it. Last night at Salsa I wore a new size 22 fitted top and 2 people separately said 'wow you've lost weight' and 'you can really see the weight coming off Melissa' and now I feel brilliant

I tell you something - after reading Teel's post it put my 'problem' into perspective!!

See you later...
