I did it πŸ˜Šβ€οΈ

Well guys I did it. I was down a pound tonight. I’m thrilled. I would’ve liked a little bit more but a pound as a pound at the end of the day and I’m happy with that.

πŸŒΈπŸ˜„

I am now 14 stone 6 1/2 pounds or Β£203.5 from my US readers.

πŸ₯°πŸ˜€

If I can keep this momentum going for the next five weeks up until Christmas I will probably be able to lose another six or Β£7 by then. I hope I can. Fingers crossed.

Anyway I’m happy with the result tonight. Now I’m off to lie down. I need to sleep.

Weigh in time again!

Its weigh in time for me again! Another tuesday evening, another week has roled around!
I’m hoping for a great result! I am nervous. You just never know how the weigh in is going to go! I think I did good, I mean I was good this past week, I didnt eat junk food, I ate plenty of fruit and vegetables. I really hope I’ve done enough and that I will be down!
Fingers crossed for me guys!

My hopes got dashed

I was really hoping to see Dr. Barry this week while eileen is away. I was meant to see her last week but I canceled my apt. I was too anxious to go in. I rang the next day for a new apt, I knew Dr. barry would fit me in this week if she could. Granted she didnt know Eileen was going to be away. But it turned out she put me in for next week instead, so now I dont have much support this week from my team. Eileen is unavailable, and I cant call dr. barry either. I suppose I could ring Sarah if I needed to talk to someone, Sarah is my CPN, she would probably talk to me if I needed her. I am trying to survive as best I can. Its not easy. Its hard to have littl or no support. I really wish I could have seen dr. barry tomorrow. I do have to go up to the hospital to get my shot, but that only takes a few minutes, I’ll be in and out in five or ten minutes. Oh well, it is what it is now. Not much I can do. I just have to try my best to get through the rest of the week, I’ll reach out here if I need to talk. I hope you all dont mind me doing that.

Busy day at the office

i had a great shift today on friendly call. i dorked for 3 hours. made a load of calls. there was one client who told me over and over how thankful she was for our call. she said its the only call she gets in the day, and how she doesnt see anyone else, how we’re the only contact she has with someone each day. so sad. but boy am i glad we are able to phone her. she’s such a special lady. so chatty and so so appreciative of our calls. i love my job so, so much. its incredible to be able to be doing something I love. I enjoy going in to the office. And not just because of the clients. I also enjoy meeting the rest of the volunteers. We have great banter in the office. Plus we also are able to talk about the clients and stuff which is nice. There is a coffee morning next week for the volunteers, but I have college on that morning so I wont be able to make it. I’m kinda bummed about that. I really wanted to go to starbux. Oh well maybe next time. My supervisor said she’d put another coffee morning on in march. I just got home about 20 minutes ago. I’m tired but I have to go out again in an hour, I am going to slimming world tonight. Until then though I am just relaxing and enjoying a few minutes of free time.

Christmas for CAMHS (Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services) are a registered charity providing gifts each year for children and young people who are in mental health units in the UK over the Christmas holiday. They say,

β€˜Our aim is to make as many children and young people who are inpatients over the Christmas holidays feel thought-about, special and included.

We have been hugely supported over the past few years by generous donations from the public and have received much gratitude as a result from inpatient units. However, we are only able to provide gifts with your charitable donations. β€˜

Christmas For CAMHS was originally set up because volunteers saw a huge disparity in the way CAMHS units were treated over the festive period compared to other NHS services for children and young people. They wanted to do something to change that and say,
