Health and happiness

I am sick of being fat. I know why it is – a sedentary job and too much good food and drink away from home. So I rejoined Slimming World a month ago and I hope that the encouragement of the group will help me shed some pounds. I have a couple of very smart skirts that I would like to be able to get back into and I’m pleased to say that I’m heading in the right direction already.

I have also been sticking religiously to my doctor’s suggested skin treatment regime for nearly two weeks. And in the last 48 hours, finally, I have noticed and improvement to my face. Fingers crossed I can get it to a manageable state. I do know that I am stuck with it for a while, though. Past experience suggests 2-3 years. However, as long as I can continue my life as a girl about town I guess I will just put up with it.

And to prove that I wasn’t going to let this stop me, I spent four days on holiday last week, meeting up with Amanda Parnell on one of her mystery city tours and then with many girls who had descended on Brighton for the weekend. More details in a later post. It wasn’t easy and my face was very sore and troublesome but I am glad I didn’t opt out. It means that a trip to Lancashire and the Lake District next month and Sparkle in July should be doable after all.

  1. Fingers crossed your complexion clears up a little and I hope the dieting goes well too. That - dieting - is such a chore, but I guess it's the only way to get trim.

  2. Cross fingers indeed. Keep well Sue x

  3. Pleased to hear that positive thoughts are working and also especially there has been some improvement - always nice to get out and see friends, it does uplift your spirits. May be next time I see you, a very smart skirt will make an appearance. Take care. xx

  4. Thank you very much for your kind comments and positive thoughts. Please keep them coming as they seem to be having a good effect. Sue x
