I'm Going to be Ab-Fab

Hi guys,
Althouh English and I live in the UK, I joined the US version of this great diet club because the American's have such a lovely positive attitude. Also I lived threre for 12 years in total. I'm a "You say tomatoes, I say tomatoes... let's call the whole thing off" sort of girl. So, here's a bit of my story...

I've lived a varied and international life from an early age and so has my husband. Our respective families have always been ...
Hi guys,
Althouh English and I live in the UK, I joined the US version of this great diet club because the American's have such a lovely positive attitude. Also I lived threre for 12 years in total. I'm a "You say tomatoes, I say tomatoes... let's call the whole thing off" sort of girl. So, here's a bit of my story...

I've lived a varied and international life from an early age and so has my husband. Our respective families have always been ex-patriates at a certain point in our lives. Alun's father took their family to Mylasia. My father's position took us internationally.

I've lived in London, Chicago/North Shore, Tunis, Tunisia, Dallas, Paris France, London again, Palma de Mallorca (spanish island) near Ibiza - one of the Baleric Islands) the Loire Valley, France and now I'm back inEngland again.

But because I have to be on steroids, since I was young (16), the simplist meal will stay on forever. In some ways it;s bloating and water retention. It's been that way ever since I was about 30. If only I could eat! I have been a size ( USA 0) in the past (when I was ill though) and felt light, active, happy.

Anyway, my firm belief on mind-over-matter has, I am sure, changed my health for the better. It's made me the strong and optimistic person I try to be. I think moving forward (not dwelling), being peaceful and accepting of oneself, takes over the body's chemicals and mind, and heals not only the emotional but the physical too.

So this is the time to get up off my sofa, get dressed and do something about it and... I'm looking forward to challenging that evil little person who sits on my shoulder and eggs -me-on to eat portions which are normal to some - but my body can't handle.


As we all say in England

-Get up earlier to get that motor running!

-Lose weight then keep it off.



My Program:


- I couldn't go out because of a terrible accident last summer but I went out a few times recently which is like a form of exercise which burns off some calories at least? Slowly, slowly...

-I am making the effort to dress most days now that I am not soooo unwell with leg and spinal pain.

-won't be suing the 'hospital' and 'doctors' who caused my accident and life changing health problem!!! Yup you got it!!

Other Information:
My beautiful Standard Poodle Louis died from bloat on October 22, 2011 at the rediculously young age of 5. I am still heart broken, and it has affected my life in so many ways because he was like a doggy soul mate. He is resting here (his ashes) with the family. I don't mean to sound morbid but my heart is still in pain and sometimes that reflects on the diet.

Victoria! I am so happy to hear from you, although I am sorry to hear you have been unwell. It is wonderful to know that you have had such success losing weight again; I do belieive it will help with the back issues. I have been getting acupuncture for my back and finding that the most helpful thing I have ever done.

It's funny, just recently someone posted that they never accect friendships with someone who already has a ton of friends. I repsonded that some of us have a lot of friends who seem to have moved on, but have not delelted them. I don't delete because I liked them and hope that one day they will return. And then a note form you! I am so glad you are back.

~ Chris

Thankyou for such a lovely note Victoria. I love the idea of reading a passage from the Secret together with your loved one. I sure do need some positive thoughts right now. My boyfriend has had a difficult time lately dealing with alcoholism. His health has been poor and he can't be drinking with the meds he is on. He can't be drinking anyway. It changes his personalty. Not the man I fell in love with. So last Friday we decided he should go for treatment. He will be away till the 23th and I miss him dearly but I know it is for the best. I can't visit him but he can call me each night for 5 minutes. Such precious minutes.
So I'm sad right now but keeping myself busy taken care of my Mom. She was discharged from the hospital a few days ago and is staying with me to recooperate. She is really doing well considering what she went thru. I'm very proud of her. Thankyou for the book recommendations. When I get a little extra money i'll order them. Wishing you a wonderful weekend.
