Its my birthday today so I would like to share a couple things with you about my special day,besides the fact that my poor beloved mum was in argony today and I thank her and tell her every day that I love her and I am glad she wanted me so I can have a life,.I love you mum and dad too,.
Also on this day 8 years ago I gave up smoking and even though I have no regrets It took me 2 years to get over it and spent many days with such a deep depression that I amaze myself that I am still here , there were many times that I would go swimming in the late and swim out to far and remember that I had to swim back., I also gained 20 klos which was the icing on the cake for me who had always been slim and never on a diet, I got so angry with myself I couldn't look at myself for a few years after that,. I am glad that I stopped smoking and was able to play with nieces and other kids but I was fat now and trying to deal with that as well as being depressed I was not a happy chappy for awhile until someone told me how my skin looked lovely from not smoking and that made such a difference in my life that the weight thing was pushed to the back of my mind,.The next few years was spent dealing with health issues with family and Glenn that I forgot about me,.
Now I have lost the 20 klos and only started on a diet early Nov last year because I had bad ankles and couldn't walk because of the sugar in my feet so I had to stop eating so much and after 7 months I have done it, I need to lose 3 more and I am the same wait I was when I married Glenn 28 years ogo, how cool is that,.,,and I am just loving myself soooooooooooo much these days, I can feel my ribs and hips which have been lost for such a long time,.lol

I made this little peg dolly for that special birthday candle and she is for sale at my Madeit Shop go have a look at all the new dollies that are for sale there,.
thanks for stopping by love yahhhhhhhhhh
good night Glenda,.,.,.,

Happy very belated birthday to you! Wow, you've come a long way since quitting smoking. I've never smoked but I have a lot of friends who always try to quit but give in to the temptation. I find it inspiring that you were able to quit and bring yourself out of depression and be in a better place. Good job!

I'm sorry to hear about your mother but it is lovely to hear that you are so grateful! I'm sure she appreciates it.

What a difficult but strong story. I'm glad you made it through quitting smoking, too. And I'm still in my weight period. I fractured my hip when I was 14 (I'm 19 now) and have had 5 opperations, finally a hip replacement two years ago. I'm still trying to lose the weight I put on and get back to the more slender me. It's difficult when the only exercise I can do well and like is swimming, yet I've had trouble with my ears! But I just went to the Ear/Nose/Throat doctor today and he gave me some tips, so hopefully that should help! I'd love to swim more.

Congratulations on losing the weight and staying away from the smoking! I'm sure your skin looks lovely.
