Feeling Excited About The Future

I am so excited for 2017. 2016 was a great year for me and my family. We progressed so much in so many areas and I can only see this new year being even better.

When I look back I think my biggest achievements for 2016 were,

My Achievements and Highlights in 2016

Having Gastric Bypass Surgery and losing 6 stone.

Finding an Endocrinologist in London willing to work with me to manage my Adrenal Insufficiency.

Saving almost £6000 and raising £250 to help fund my adrenal pump and medical costs.

Moving house. It didn’t happen until the end of the year but we have a suitable home at last. This is so super exciting.

Changing my blog name to The Inspiration Edit. This was a massive decision and the right one.

Being shortlisted in the Inspirational category at the BritMums BIB Brilliance in Blogging Awards.

Having so many awesome Sylvia’s Style blog posts.

Becoming a Hasbro Toy Tribe Member.

Working with Disney on a few blog campaigns.

Completing Two years of counselling.

Getting a new bed and mattress through blogging.

Watching Les Miserables in London

Decluttering Half the home- I still have half to go.

Building some lasting friendships in my local area and online.

Staying out of hospital for 8 months.

Well, I think I have achieved a lot for one year. To say this time last year I could barely stand. I was using a wheelchair most of the time and having serious blood pressure issues every morning due to unstable Adrenal Insufficiency.

I was in chronic pain for three years but now I am not. My specialist even said I am now fit enough to carry a child. Now that’s massive as John and I thought this would never be an option for the future. Who knows what 2017 will bring.

We have so many plans to make and new goals to set and I’m hoping this will be the year we can do up our home, get to go on a family holiday, grow the blog and earn a good income. One step at a time!

Happy New Year

  1. Oh it’s lovely to hear that things have been going so well for you. Especially the health aspect and losing 6 stone is incredible! I really like the new name for the blog too, it definitely fits well with your style. Here’s hoping that 2017 will be an amazing year for you and your family!

    1. That is good news. I did have to have fertility treatment for Sylvia so don’t expect any babies but i can always dream!

  2. You have come such a long way Angela, and it’s really inspiring to watch. I loved seeing you in London, walking and looking healthy. I hope we have many more occasions like that in 2017
