Fast-forward 3 years...

A month after my last post I was at a Christmas party and fell off the wagon.  3 years on and a horrific 76lbs heavier I have still not managed to catch up with the aforementioned wagon.   A lot has gone down in the period since. 



One of the biggest things is that I have been suffering from a bizarre chronic fatigue illness.  Slowly and gradually over the past two years I have had less and less energy to the point of were walking a mile was considered an achievement.  Many treatments later I believe I am recovering but it is tediously slow and I need to be careful not to spend tomorrow’s energy today. At this point 30 minutes of low level to moderate exercise empties the bank and to go any further would take me beyond the red line.  This in itself presents a sizable challenge as all weight loss campaigns of the past relied heavily on exercise. Thankfully I have a very supportive family and a great friend who is a very talented personal trainer/nutritionist and he has been providing much needed advice and support.


So are you up for journeying with me?  Check in every couple of days then to join in the conversation…
