So nice to get to weekends these days. Sometimes have plans sometimes none at all.

But no voice in the back of your brain going "it's your lucky weekend, you will win a jackpot if you leave the house now"

11 weeks! 🤗🤗🤗
Well done Cazza, so happy for you.
This story you tell of going home and telling your husband everything and it be the begining of the end, my last week of gambling before I started this challenge was tragic.
A few things occurred that week that just saw me loose what little of myself was left. I thought I had hit rock bottom many times before, but no I had not up until that week. I can never go back there. It's like that was the week I gave my soul to the devil. But here I am 64 odd days in. Yay!

Keep up the fight Cazza, you certainly give me the inspiration to keep pushing and the support from you and others is immeasurable.
I am super pleased for you

Well have decided that I will start a new board in 16 days. I still get the odd thought but i don't actually want to call it an urge because I don't want to go back. But i do want to keep tracking my journey.
I have had my keycard for the last week and i have also had free time and it hasn't been until i have got home and said to my husband i could have gone.
He asked me if I have wanted to and i have honestly been able to say no.
Not over it yet, and believe i never will be. But i have definitely fallen "out of love" with the machines.

90 days tomorrow. It feels like it has past in the blink of an eye and at times frustratingly slow.
Just keep pottering on, as much as i am looking forward to my 100 days this moment of 3 months was what I wanted to make and i love the fact i am there. 😊
