Mr Savvy and I have been through so much over the past few years, it’s been one thing after another. We lived in a slum for several years and I am pretty sure that’s where the troubles started. We just found out our son who was 3 years old at the time was autistic and we thrown into the depths of the world of Autism.
This was creating so much stress and strain on us all, no one knew what was going on with Luke, why he acted the way he did. I became more depressed with each passing day as I spiraled into the depths of the mire. All the time Mr Savvy was trying to juggle everything and keep us all afloat. As I was stuck in a melancholy trap, Mr Savvy would reach for biscuits for comfort. At first it was a few biscuits with cup of tea, then it became generally snacking.
As the years passed Mr Savvy’s waistline grew, it never dawned on me what was happening. We had become stuck in a rut and couldn’t get out. As we began to see food as comfort.
Just before Christmas I had another mini stroke. I think it was this that finally brought home what had happened to us, how we relied on food to get us through the day. How we would reach for the crisps and biscuits when we had a bad day, which to be honest was most days.
Mr Savvy joined weight watchers online in an attempt to get his life back on track.
He has only being doing weight watchers for a week and is doing incredibly well. He has cut out ALL his snacks, now eating 3 meals a day and not skipping meals. In a week Mr Savvy has already lost a STONE . It’s amazing and I am so proud of him. He is trying to turn his life around. Whether it is the weight watchers or just sheer will power he is doing incredibly well.
