New page under construction, just like me.

I have been using this site since February 2008, along the way I have found plenty of help and advice and lost 60lbs. That means my skirts are 5 sizes smaller and, depending on the cut, my tops are 3-4 sizes smaller.
I have also managed to start regular exercise sessions to complement my visits to Curves and recently started the C25k programme. (I never thought I would even attempt that until now, but I even managed to get DD to join me)
I never believed that it would be possible ...

I never believed that it would be possible to get back to my wedding weight but that is looking ever more achievable although I only wanted to be able to say I am 10st something (14?lbs)

Hi Helen, I have only just noticed that I received a 'Spark' gift from you in November - a pair of new jeans (which I really needed as my trousers are getting too big!) So thank you for that. I was just reading your page and saw you have lost over 60lbs, that is amazing. I am now down to 32 pounds and would like to lose another 10-15lbs - so that I, like you, can say I'm 10st something! emoticon
Keep up the good work, I'll be visiting the 'pub' soon.

Hi Helen
I keep dropping in to the Hog's trough and trying to keep conversation going; but it's been a monologue recently! I'll be glad to see you there sometimes! Poor old Barlow - not easy having two dogs with such different needs. If I lived nearer I'd offer to walk him for you! I've put on eight recently; so my ticker is a joke - I need to get my bike out again. I love your background picture! xCatherine emoticon

I seem to remember Barlow is a big dog. I have a link to a knitting pattern for a dog coat but the dog in the picture is tiny, so it probably won't be any use to you. Let me know if you still want it. emoticon

Thanks for your post on my page. I knew Shetlands were small, but really had no idea they were this tiny. The ponies where I ride are mostly Welsh, which are a bit bigger. She's just adorable on the pony!!! I ride an American Quarter Horse, so I'm used to something a bit bigger. :)
