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 reflect the highs and lows that I face day to day working as a sole practitioner.

I tend to blog regularly. I don't know why, but there is a strong need in me to blog my every day experience. I have no idea how long this will last.

All I can say is It helps me to put my thoughts, feelings and views on a blog. When writing I am not too concerned about spelling, grammar or even how I come across. I feel that if I worry about these areas, the subject matter I want to put across will not reflect how I am thinking and feeling at the time.

My blogs reflect the type of person I am. That is the nature of blogging. It is meant to reflect views and thoughts of the blogger.

I will not be to everyone's tastes. Thankfully AW has a good variety of bloggers. This means there are more than likely to be blogs more in keeping with your taste.

I am humbled by the fact that my blog is actually read! Not only this but some readers go as far as commenting.

Thank you for reading my blogs and commenting. I really do appreciate it.
