Sleep Apnea

I am feeling a bit miffed today about a TV Program that we watched last night about overweight people.
 On the program there was this very large lady who has sleep Apnea , 
She announces on the TV to the nation that her Apnea is because she is overweight ,
 So Today i had to go to Citi Hospital in Birmingham to get my new sleep mask and asked the specialist , If i loose weight will my Apnea Disappear ,She looked at my history and mine  was that i  stopped breathing 36 times an hour times an hour  and anything over 30 was severe .
She said that they have stick thin people with sleep apnea so its not always a weight thing.

Why do these programs portray untruths , 
After the program i was thinking everybody who watched this now thinks if they know me that my Apnea is caused by my weight ,

 I have joined weight watchers anyway as  i am not very good at motivating myself, I have tried for the last few months  and I dont like slimming world ,

 After seeing this photo of me at my brother's wedding  this last weekend and feeling upset



After not being able to find anything in my size without breaking the bank.
Our daughter has paid for me to go for the next three months , I cant let her down or for that matter myself for my health as the last blood test found sugar and have to have a re test in 3 months ,This has all happened for not being as active as i used to be due to health reasons. 
 But most of all i was inspired by my freind Vix  https://vintagevixon.blogspot.co.uk , I have been married for 40 years next june and will be 58  so would like to be a lot lighter and more happy with my weight  at that time.

Some more photos from the wedding.
My mom & Dad , Sister & Brother ( The groom ) 



The bride was tiny she looked beautiful.





The bridesmaids were so sweet , My great Niece is in the middle she did so well.


And the local revamped conservative club in Wednesbury was fantastic.

The Reveal

Well it's all done now , We have gone for a really dark colour , I know people say dont go dark in a small room but to compliment the new chairs we had to really ,
It's so cosy looking now i am thrilled , All is cost was the paints ,Some new lamp shades and a few more bargain finds and its cost just under  £100




We use a panel of wallpaper to add some interest over the fireplace , It depends on the pattern we only purchased one roll , This was used to add detail to the tv cabinet.



This was in a job lot i bought from Auction.


The lamp bases were two for £1.50 from jumble sale and the shades £5.00 each from Ikea. 



I never wanted  a big Tv as they dominate a room and this cabinet has been cut down to accommodate it , Sometimes you have to do things you dont like so other people are happy.  



I made the striped cushions the  round blue ones were £1.00 each from a jumble sale.  



This pie crust table was picked up from a jumble sale for £3.00 




The colour sets of the gold pictures.



I made these cushions from a 30p piece of fabric from a jumble. 


The brown lamp shade compliments the brown velvet curtains that i cant afford to replace. B & Q £7.99
