Hi Everyone. Carmel from Ireland. Mum to 8 sons & grandmother to 4 Grandkids, Have a good life, getting my divorce soon,

Hoping to get involved in Event Organisation, need to lose weight to feel confident to go for it, Have a year to lose the weigh, so this time not been stupid, taking it slow and easy.

Im a happy person, young in heart, independent, love my family, (well nearly all the time anyway)

Love meeting people, Listening to Music, love walking once I get out the front door. Love trying new recipes.

Thigh problem
I have huge hips and small top. The new trainer in gym told me over the years i always worked on end part of my body so its resisting the loss now, what Militaryman says is true it will be the last to go away but keep exercising. Meonlybetter also said something that is so true to me it is my inner saddle bags are my worse thing about my weight loss. This sometimes I think is what stops me losing weight, the worry they will get worse as I lose.

HELP dealing with temptation
I can so relate to everything said, except but by some miracle I dont like McDonalds exc for their coffee. Its hard,MAKPARIS, when parent is ill, Mum has Alzhemiers, tried to cope for years, (2 sisters as well brill with mum), and rearing my 8 sons, and putting up with 7 greedy (cant wait for her to die) siblings,nearly bought me to a breakdown. I was about 24 stone before I was forced to put in into home, it has taken me 6 years to come to terms with it and not crying each time I leave her, BUT I had to learn if I did not take care of ME, my kids would go have to go through the pain of what I went through with mum. You stay strong, take it 1 hour at a time, every 2 god hours a day adds up in the long term.Hope your mum well soon.

A few weeks ago I wanted to resort out my BUDDIES, over the yrs I've built up hundreds. and some not on site anymore, I asked how can you do that, asking can I delete by maybe if someone not being on over a year but told me can only delete them one by one.and then you have to click are you sure you want to delete. But said they will look into it.Still think Its a brilliant site. Laughing
