I lost my husband last year to ALS. I had stopped working a few years prior when it was apparent that he needed 24 hour care. I had no training in caregiving but rather learned "on the job".
After Michael died, I plumetted into severe anxiety and depression. He was the love of my life, my soul mate, my person. My emotional overeating skyrocketed and the weight piled on. I got to 218.6.
I somehow lost 10 pounds by June of this year, when I joined mfp. I've lost another 20 since June. Within the last month, I've had normal range bloodwork results and great visits with both my endocrinologist and GP.
Last week, I gained 6 pounds due to medication changes. I ate over calories due to stressing about it. Yesterday, I refocused and got my head straight. September is a new month and a new chance.
Today, I will focus on mindful eating. I will stay in a calorie deficit. I am worth it. 💙

Back from my 5k run. Cool breeze and choppy waves - just the way I like it.
I have now got all my photos, documents, music and videos on my old laptop copied onto the new hard drive. Amazing that such a tiny box can hold so much. 9,750 photos! Masses of music -13 gb.
Now all I have to do is see if I can transfer the photos, videos and documents to my new laptop in the format I am used to. I'm not sure about the music. It's stuff I copied off my cds years ago. It could just stay on the hard drive. I play most stuff I want on my phone via a Bluetooth speaker. I still have a lot of cds. There are one or two obscure cds I might put on my phone if I can work out a way to do it. Can’t find the same ones on Amazon. Irish Bodhran anyone? Or a particular Klesmer track I would like played at my funeral? I lost them off my phone when my phone card got corrupted a couple of years ago. I used to listen to them often on the train and decided they would be perfect for my funeral, along with, "Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think."
I'm getting there, very slowly.
Much love to all, Heather UK xxxxxxx
