From a cold sunny South Africa

Hiya all.


Yes, it’s been a while.  I’m on here everyday and I’m up to date with all your shenanigans.  Reading every day keeps me focussed and strong.


I’m struggling badly with depression.  My quit is strong (137 days – over 4 months!). 

So thought I should just check in, say Hi and report that my knee is healing well and all the doctors are happy with my progress.  I’m walking (carefully) without any aids, a little unsure that I really have 2 working knees, but to be painfree is just as amazing as being smoke free.


I also went back to Weight Watchers this Tuesday past and am trying to “get with the program” again with the same single-mindedness I had before.  Applying all I learn here – a very similar tool kit.  But my heart isn’t in it yet.  And I did gain more than I expected to – not as much as I lost the first 6 months, but still too much.   Thank you depression.


I’m doing the best I can to get out of this CRAPPY “dip” as the doctors call it.  I’m NOT increasing any medication and I don’t need head shrinking.   HELL no.  I just need to ride this out, however long it takes.  Thought about blogging my depression history but that's too depressing.



Stay strong peeps.  See you again soon
