Weigh-in Wednesday(late again) – week 5

I’m as flaky as a, well, flake at the moment… I’m still playing catching up after my massive depressive episode and plus my hubs has been poorly(will explain more later on that). So this Wednesday was my week 5 weigh in and I was shitting it.  I’d not been sticking to plan and I was […]

I’m a sucker for Instagram shopping and I love to discover new and exciting things to try – much to the dismay of my bank balance. I came across Motivacelet a little while back and love the idea- bracelets to count weight loss that are subtle but so pretty and you can use for a […]

Depression & dehydration – my 7 day challenge

I’ve now been on duloxetine for five weeks and I’ve had a slight increase in dosage to try and ease the anxiety but for the most part I am feeling better. Well.  I thought I was anyways.
