Thank you all for your support, which really helps. You guys rock. I edited this to make it seem easier and to stick to the important stuff, which is mostly trying to heal. Donna, I went for acupuncture. I am determined to try and beat this flare using natural, non med remedies, like hot baths and stretching, as much as possible.

Bad weekend really, except calories and fizzy pop. I sat most of the 2 days, drank 10 cups of tea and 6 cups of coffee over the 2 days, ate 12 packets of crisps over the 2 days, ate no veg, did no exercise what so ever on Sunday.
New start today though, I have scrapped the no tea for a week until the caffene from the weekend has gone, I needed a cup of tea this morning and am on 2 today.
I just seemed quite depressed, hopefully all will get better.

Overall, I'm pleased as punch with this week. Solid blue, not one slip-up. I didn't lose any additional weight, it's true, but I didn't expect to. After such a big drop from April 9-14, I figured April 15-21 was all about "sticking the landing". This coming week, April 22-28, *should*(in theory) produce a loss for next Monday. Assuming it's another solid blue week .
