Bathing Beauty


Whew, finally got a chance to sit down and post today's card. There are a couple of reasons that I have been so busy this week. The first is that I have been having a lot of balance problems and having been backwards and forwards to the doctor and neurologist for over a year, a 3 hr visit to the ENT dept last wek, with loads of tests, has now linked the problem to labyrinthitis which I first had 3 yrs ago and again a year later., something I have always suspected. I have a series of balance tests to do twice a day and then have to go back 1 Aug. 

The second is that I joined Slimming World last week.My first weigh in last night and 3lbs lost. It took me a few days to get the balance of foods right so I am really pleased with that as a start. So by the time I get home that's 2 hrs gone. I have spent time sorting what to eat and reading all about it so with the forms to fill in for this and my balance tests I seem to have used up a lot of time this week which I would normally spend crafting. If I can lose some weight and get my balance problems sorted it will be worth it.
