Hello all,

While some of us are really struggling with lockdown, I thought it be nice to share the small wins because they matter too! It could be as small as you had lunch today, you had a lie in, you did something for yourself etc!

Wins you feel proud of today! 
Mine is : I managed a lie in!


What's your win of the day?

    This may sound silly but I've been a tug of war with relapsing the past two months.

    Yesterday (like many times) I decided to loosen the rules a bit. I had a takeout with my SO and it was lovely. I ate all of it and I even had a few treats that day and I didn't feel too bad.😊

    Had a small win today and had a small breakfast before work. I haven't done that in over a year. I normally don't leave myself time

    Small win big win whatever you want to call it I’ve been really struggling to find the motivation to shower but these last few weeks I’ve managed to shower atleast every other day !
    Sometimes all you need is one person to believe in you , for you to begin to believe in yourself.

    I ate solid food yesterday, in memory of Pip, I know she would want me to eat and not fall back into the depths of anorexia

    The steps you take don’t need to be big, they just need to take you in the right direction.

    Also just want to say. I can go out after having covid tests because I get paid for the test. There is never been any reason I’ve got the covid test other than helping for research  or being in hospital

    I left the house today for the first time since Friday. I shouldn’t be proud of that really but I’ve basically spent the last 3 days hiding in bed so it’s better lol.

    Felt loads calmer today so managed to get a fair bit done. Shopping etc. I’ll tackle the cleaning another day, it probably won’t last too long but I guess I have to recognise a better day and use it.

    Just finished ironing a big batch of clothes, my arms are aching, but I'm happy I got to finish most of the housework before my grandparents come

    Hey all,

    I really like this thread and that it is still going! It is really uplifting and just shows us that we are never alone. Also, we can recognise our own achievements as well as other people's. Thank you @GreenTea for starting this thread. My small win for the day is that I have made progress on a project I am working on! :3
