Monday 10 December 2012


It has been such a long time since I blogged or read any blogs or ate the way I should be.  I don't have the internet at the moment since we moved into our lovely new flat and it may be another month or so til we get it so I can't imagine that my frequency of blogging will improve just yet.
I feel like I've been in hell, my sister lost custody of my niece and she's being adopted by some relatives of ours who live in the north, about 4 hours drive away.  We'll still be able to see her thank goodness, but not as often as I've become used to.  My sister is in a terrible state.
On top of this a close friend of mine committed suicide and few weeks ago, he is the first person close to me whose died and I'm struggling with discovering what grief feels like.

All I ask is that you don't forget about me.  I miss you all and miss reading your funny and heart warming posts.  I WILL BE BACK!  Fighting.  I just need to get through the next few weeks, terrified that my sister is going to kill herself, get used to Betty having moved away, learn from my grief.  I will come back fighting and I will lose the last 60+lbs.

Love you all xxx


  1. Here and rooting for your return to your commitment to you.

  2. Take care of yourself. Sometimes all we can do is get by! The weightloss will keep!

  3. I am so sorry you're going through all of this. We are still here and I'll be praying for you, your sister and your friend's family. Hang in there sweetie. ((HUGS))

  4. Oh Mari, so, so sorry for this devastating time. My heart is breaking for you. We could never forget about you!! We'll be here when you get back...I am not going anything nearly as stressful and awful as you are, and my weightloss is on the back burner too...this time of year can be very difficult even without all the other stuff going on in your life. Sending you much, much love, big hugs, and the new year will offer new opportunities in every way. xoxo

  5. Hang in there, girl. We will be here.

  6. Oh honey, what a terrible load in the run up to Christmas. I hope your holidays went well and you all got to spend some time with Betty. Please remember I am always around if you need me. I'll email you my number again, just in case. And if there is anything I can do, or try to, please ask. xxxx
