A new beginning.

I'm still going. 

It's amazing the difference a message from your role model can do. Catherine from Chronicles is mine. We were banded on the same day a few years apart and during my first year, I often asked myself what I thought she would do. She has had similar heart aches, family health concerns and has a job that takes up most of her time too. 

So when she sent me a message saying put down the cookies and get my arse to the gym. I did. I've been twice since then too. It's not a miracle but slowly and surely, I shall overcome.

It was children in need on Friday (UK based charity supporting children with medical conditions, terrible family circumstances or living in extreme poverty). We dressed up as super heroes.  I was super girl complete with Pudsey ears. He's the long standing symbol of children in need.

Once upon a time ...

Once upon a time there was this blogger with a Lapband. She lost a lot of weight and began pulling her life together following many unhappy years. She met a man who made her feel beautiful and special. Then he left. Her heart broke. She  stopped blogging. She spent her days eating chocolate chip cookies and gaining weight. She got a new job, teaching a brilliant class in a lovely school. She was great at it but she wasn't happy. 

She knew this was not the ending she deserved. 

To be continued. ...
