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,
Thanks for your comments on my page - I've been trying to do a quick check on our team each time I log on; but, like you, notifcations don't always get to my email account. I'm on a roll with the New Year, so I'm making the effort to log in and drop random comments in at the Hog's Trough. I'm also trying to save the time I spend on the computer for studying - so I have to exercise to earn time Sparking! Hope all is well with you, Catherine emoticon

Hi Helen,
Thank you for your lovely comments on my blog! How are you doing? How is the new pussycat? I have been out in the garden today cutting back my laurels. Last week I did some weeding as they had grown tremendously even though its been very cold. Tomorrow they say it will rain! Ugh!

Hi Helen,
Thank you for stopping by my page. I am glad you are feeling better. A virus is awful because antibiotics don't work. Rest and lots of vitamin C is best. There is still a bit of snow around here and lots of ice where it has been melting. We went up to Butser top car park yesterday and the roads were not very good. The car park was closed because of the ice. It must have been awful for your dad going up to the old Mercury site, because a lot of the lanes were very bad.
Petersfield lake is almost completey frozen over, just a little bit left for the birds. We have been trying to feed then every day, but couldn't get there 2 days last week, because the roads were so bad. I am glad its gone from Portsmouth. Emsworth creek was frozen last week which is quite bad because its sea water. Not long till Christmas now. I got my first card this morning from the US. Have not sent mine yet, I had better hurry up. We are buying our first Christmas pressent today for our granddaughter. Its her birthday and my youngest sons on the 21st Dec. She will be 2. Looking forward to her party. Hope you have a good week.
Ellen
