It’s beginning to look a lot like…

Christmas! I love Christmas it’s one of my favourite times of year because I get to gift people. I love seeing peoples faces when they open gifts.

Unsupported?

Or just blind? I’ve lost 6 stone, I’m now 13.5 stone but can wear size 10 jeans, size 12 tops. I’m still in the Obese class 1 category and my goal weight is 10.6 stone, which would put me at a healthy BMI and allow me to go horse riding at any stables. So farContinue reading “Unsupported?”

When he finally saw me he smiled and said thereContinue reading “Body Changes & Gastric Bypass”

It’s not just one area, a border or piece of land, it’s the whole country under attack.Continue reading “Air Raid Warnings in 2022”

Animals Just Know

As I lay in bed with such pain in my head, this little beautiful being comes to lay on me and purrs away. Instantly soothing, the heat from her tiny body, the feel of her beautiful coat and the grey noise of the purr. Gizzy must be my little spirit animal sent to help meContinue reading “Animals Just Know”

Here is me hoping and praying, that we are making steps in the right direction. Having gone from complete breakdowns and self harming to smiling, chatting and being more sociable, weContinue reading “Small steps…”
