sorry to see your family's sad news, Kirsty. Hope the family are able to give each other all the support they need. Did gran live fairly near or miles away over the other side of Scotland? My thoughts and prayers are with you, m'dear.


Carol, well done for maintaining through all what you have been going through lately...you should be very pleased and proud of yourself!!

Chris, the more I hear about oxycontin the more I wish I had never been on it I have had the worst week posible withdrawing from it. What I don't understand is that last year, about June, I was on over double the dose and came off that with no problems, yet here am I coming off only 20mg twice a day and have been really wrecked with the whole gammit of withdrawal symptoms. For the fist time in my life I am off my food!!! which may help kick the weight loss into touch. Not very helpful with keeping the diabetes in line, but there, you can't have everything!!

Poor you Teel I have just been told about all your ailments. Isn't it a pain when notes get lost and yu go back on pills you kow are rubbish. Most of the time I think they are clueless. Part of the tie I work for a psychiatrist and I am horrified what some of the drugs do to people. Let's hope things get better for you soon.

I am a happy bunny Am sitting here with my cuppa, and got a phone call at quarter to six saying we only had a ninety minute delay for school BUT...now, we have NO school due to the snow. So now I can laze about all day while the snow comes down (this will be in between washing, drying, folding, hoovering, shovelling snow and such), but I'll take it to make a three day weekend.
Will be back later to see what you are all up to. Have a great day. I am

I think you're right, I do feel a bit 'jammy' today The snow hass stopped, the roads are clear and the sun is shining now, and I have a day off
Laundry isn't done though, there's about six more loads to do, cos I stupidly went into the kids rooms and picked up their clothes from their floors! GAH!
Am off to do more now and do a quick tidy up and then I have to go and do therapy, so it's not a completely free day. Later taters.

All that laundry and you thought you had the day off Chris God, you must be so sick of seeing snow i would be sick of it we are gettin a bit of everything today (except snow) its sunny but showering at the same time and a little bit breezy.

Kirsty, sorry about your Gran we will miss you..hope you come back soon

Teel i can't get used to calling you Sheila but i will poor you, you are having it rough are'nt you hopefully the worst is behind you and you'll feel better soon

Did some ironing this morning and went through some clothes throwing stuff out, anyone else like me and not like throwing clothes away? they still have plenty of life in them but the fact is that i just don't have room for them all anyway, for some reason i buy new stuff, hang it up and then carry on wearing the old "comfy" stuff its about time i broke some of the new stuff in and stopped being such a slob

Went and rejoined WW this morning, a different class with a different leader, my last one was lovely but she has given it up, not a lot of use. So there I was this morning determined that I was going trudging up to the class, had no idea where the hall was so parked and looked around for it, finally found it up 2 flights of stairs, that will help the weight loss, right. So that' sme offically back up to 16 stone 1. (225lbs) I had had a huge breakfast and had my clothes on, Ihave been weighing naked first thing in the morning, so guess the 4lb gain from that is about right.

So 26 points for me this week, lots of exercise and humongous amounts of water. I will have a loss to post next week, how big depends on me.

Weather is horrible here to, we have had everything today, rain snow sunshine and fog, just glorious !!!!!

Carol i'm sure you'll do great going to a class is a real motivator, think I need "policing" too i always managed to stay OP when i went to class think it was because i knew i had to get on the scale in front of "that woman" every week i'm being really bad at the mo' bought lots of goodies last night at Walmart and i can see that i'm going to be a right this weekend but then i always am i like Saturdays because i get to watch all the english shows even if they are really old today i watch Pie in the Sky, At home with the Braithwaites (even tho' i've seen this series 3 times already) and my fave at the moment, Footballers Wives then tonight its Heartbeat followed by Frost and i eat chocs and drink beer to my hearts content

I have only read the last few posts so I apologise if I have missed anything.

I know what you mean Carol and Cat. I need to be policed - lol. I am feeling really good about joining SW. I am feeling even better that I did it on my own (very brave for me -lol).

I have been really well behaved for the last couple of weeks (as far as food goes anyway - lol).

I am worried again that I might not have a loss this week though as I simply don't feel hungry on this diet. Am just cooking a huge quorn casserole - only Syns in it are from the stock.

Am really thinking about eating chocolate now though thanks to Cathy - lol

Wish me luck for Monday

Hi Linus, so sorry to hear of your loss. My grandfather died in July of last year (just one month after his 80th birthday). He had a stroke (and possibly a heart attack) one day out of the blue and although at first the doctors thought he would make a full recovery, he continued to have more strokes in the hospital. It hit me hard, I have a very small family and only one set of grandparents (don't know my father's side).

I know right now that it feels like the pain will never go away but believe me it will ease over time. Now just 9 months on I can think of all the funny things my grandad used to do without crying.

Thinking of you in these hard times.
