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.
