Mumentum - I've lost mine

I joined in with Liska's Mumentum linky from week 1 but I missed it on Monday because I was just too annoyed with myself to even think about it.

So better late than never, here is my woe is me post (it must be the week for it Liska!) . . .

I am ill all the time. If I'm not ill then JC is ill. We have been passing this cold and flu virus back and forth for the past few months and it just isn't shifting. It makes losing weight difficult as my plans go on hold while life gets in the way. I am just really fed up feeling poorly all the time and I am sure that this on/off dieting isn't helping matters. My immune system is probably at an all time low at the moment. I don't know what to do for the best. I can't do nothing and just hope that the fat miraculously disappears but I also worry the the constant dieting and falling off the wagon is doing more harm than good. I think I need someone to give me a good shake and tell me to get a grip and knuckle down. I can't blame the weight on JC as he is ten months old but I can blame my recent increase in weight on the fact that I have now stopped breastfeeding and can't consume the same amount of calories anymore.

I am going on holiday to Florida in 6 weeks time and at the rate I am going I should probably avoid visiting SeaWorld just in case they try to keep me for the whale enclosure!

Sorry it's short and sweet but I am totally annoyed and disgusted with myself this week so I have nothing helpful or inspiring to share!


  1. Oh no...don't be so down on yourself. You are dealing with illness, a baby and giving up breastfeeding all at once. You can't blame yourself when everything is stacked against you. I hope you feel better soon and get your mumentum back! xxx

  2. Och petal!!!!! You can do it, you've just had a really bad time of it. It's awful when you pick one thing up after another, I can sympathise with that! Try and keep your chin up, and I couldn't help but laugh at the bit about sealife, and I don;t mean that in an unkind way - Hugs xxx

  3. Chin up sweetie - we are all here for you, Liska xxx

  4. Ok lovley, you have done the kick up the bum, now forgive yourself and get back on the horse!

    Concentrate on getting yourself well and then think about weight loss later.

  5. Now you have got that off your chest, start a fresh and don't think of it as a diet, think of it as a new healthier you. Everyone is here for you,

    Hope you are feeling better soon xx
