My youngest son turned 4 years old yesterday! What a great day we had. He spent the day at day care, sent along with enough patty cakes for the entire class. I stayed home and cooked up a storm in preparation for all the guests. I made sausage rolls from scratch, more patty cakes (from scratch), a birthday cake (from packet), sandwiches, and pizza, (from scratch). There was a tonne of food and it was delicious. Mickey had a great time, his main present, a scooter, being a highlight for him. He has been eyeing off the scooter at Toyworld for the longest time........

Last night I lay in bed, thinking back over the day. I considered what I had achieved and felt really proud of myself. I had worked hard all day, and even included my 4km walk. I realized that it was the first time in many years, that I had cooked up such a storm. For many years now I have resorted to buying the food, because I just haven't had the time or the energy or inclination to cook things from scratch. It always seemed like just too much. Since I have been on my anti depressants, I have improved greatly. Since starting HRT I have improved even more. Having the testosterone implant is responsible for this renewed energy. I used to just get tired thinking about doing what I did yesterday, and I accomplished it all yesterday without stress and really enjoyed myself................

On the WW front, I really believe I have hit on a winning formula. Okay I don't manage my points correctly everyday, but I don't feel deprived. While I am exercising I know that I am doing my body a favour, and that if I 'behave' most days, surely it will pay off in the long run.

I just need to keep the bigger picture in mind........
