Weight Watchers weigh-in Week 23

This week is the biggest weight loss I have achieved since I started with Weight Watchers. This is despite being away for the weekend and eating a lot. I think the reason for this loss is the way I am feeling about myself. I will explain (as I have mentioned before my blog is warts and all).

In addition to loneliness I mentioned in my previous blog, I think I am going through some form of midlife crisis. It has recently struck with me that I am middle aged, single (not looking for tips), no children and my income is no way near where I would like it to be. It is a mild form of depression that I think I am going through.

I have been asking myself  questions such as what is the point of it all. Why have I made the choices I made? Why did I put financial success before personal success? What is going to happen to me now?

As an African Indian arriving in the UK at the age of 16 with a poor educational background, I really had to work hard to get anywhere. This meant personal time had to be sacrificed. This I think has caught up with me now.

This morning work went well. I listened to an audio book while I was working. It is if someone is sitting in the office and reading the book aloud.

I will book an appointment with my GP. I think I should be back to my normal self soon.

Thank you to all those who responded to my previous blog and sending me PMs.

over half way now, excellent.

I empathise with what you say above, has many familiar sounds to it for me, I had similar feelings and thoughts three years ago and that is when I started writing poetry, to help me make sense of my thoughts and emotions - keep looking, you will find what works for you - audio books are a good idea, I am alone most of the time at work, and listening to the radio or music does keep one company.

Radio 4 is very good, as is 4 extra, you can go to the BBC radio player and find loads to listen too depending on your mood.

This blog is intended to show the highs and lows I face day-to-day working as an ambitious and highly driven small practice owner.

My blogs will be both professional and personal. What happens in my personal life affects my professional life and vice versa.

Just covering one aspect and not the other means that I will not learn how to improve and change.

Weight loss is an ongoing issue for me. You will find my weight loss blog on http://firsttab.co.uk/

My key motivation for blogging is constant and never ending improvement. Writing helps me to do this.

I hope you find my blogs of some interest.
