I was doing grand a short while ago - lost nearly a stone and walked regularly with my greyhound Bess....but then, life kicked in as it does sometimes and made all the difference. I had steroids injected wrongly into my eye, causing double vision, so this is really difficult in all sorts of ways, though it is surprising what you get used to in time!! Also had a very bad fall which has injured my hip and lower back rather badly - hope this will mend. At least I didnt break it, due to the weight and padding no doubt....*chuckle*...........

What has really annoyed me is that I have put back three quarters of the weight I had taken off and that is really distressing - I had felt so very much better. Have got to get used to using a stick for the time being I think, till the hospital sort the DV thing out. Better than having yet another fall methinks!

I have still to learn to monitor my bs unfortunately..:(.........................hope I come in with a better sounding blog next time!!!
