Just a little share with you all today!!!

Hi Girls,

Sorry it has been a while,

Just wanted to let you know that it seems to me that I must be having a little break from Scrapping as I have not scrapped in over 2 weeks!!!! (give me a minni just blowing my nose and wiping the tears away from my face!!)
I have just been so busy lately, and trying to catch up at our business, as over school holidays did not work much so now the paper work is just building up!!!!
I also am trying to loose some weight, so that is keeping me busy and active, as I try not to think about food so I do not get hungry or just binge eat!!!!

Little Story I would like to share with you!!!

3 Years ago I was a staggering 82kilos and this February I was a little 58Kilos. I then gave up smoking. and put on half that weight I lost!!! :( :(
Great that I gave up smoking great for my health and for my two boys..... let me add my DH gave up with me!!
But What I'm about to share with you all is the first time I have told anyone that is outside my family and my 2 best friends

My yo-yo dieting as my doctor and dietitian tells me has now done damage to me for life!!!!
I now have a liver disease!!!!! The dieting did not give it to me it has just not made it any better!!!
I now am working with my doctor and dietitian and now I'm back on weight watches as that's how I lost my weight in the first place. I have to loose weight doc says down to around 55kilos to give my liver the best of health that I can... I am not over weight now he says I just have to loose the weight for my liver and to be the healthiest that I can be!!! This means:
No take away fatty foods at all!!! no alcohol!! no wheat, very little dairy!!! I am now on calcium tablets!!
a hell of a lot of changes in my life is going on right now!!! all the foods I enjoyed like a Vegemite sandwich yep well no longer can have that!!!! :(:(
My 2 besties are helping me threw this!!! and my mum too.... which gee I love them for!! In fact to tell you all the truth when I got told this I was beside my self I was like no way I have two boys that need me etc etc!!! I ate and ate and ate all the foods I was not allowed too!!! But now this past week one of my Bestest friends has helped me get on track again..

Have seen doc recently and he put it all into nice words for me!! as I had a little whimper to him about this and my fears over leaving my two boys!!! he told me that if I can loose this weight and keep healthy and keep up exercising daily he thinks ill be fine, this disease can grow worse either way loosing the weight or not, but the best option for me and my liver is to be HEALTHY.... So guess what HEALTHY it is for me!!!! he will do more testing to me in 3 months to see how my liver is after being on a diet and hopefully losing around the 10 kilo mark!!!! see if it is at bay or is still growing as such!! this is as my liver is now enlarged!!!

So please ladies Thanks to you all that have listened to me poor my heart out!!! please let me tell you thou that gee it feels good to get it off of my chest!!! :)
I am at a good place right now as I can feel this new diet working for me and getting back on weight watches it all feels good... So can not promise you that ill be back tomorrow or in a week to share some scrapping with you all, but I do miss you all and scrapping, I miss it lots but am just concentrating on loosing weight right now!!!!
So THANKS for being patient
