My daughter (Anna age 12) came home with a money box she bought from her pocket money. She said ''there are rules, mum and you have to stick to it.''

When you get weighed every week the box charges you 1
For every pound in weight lost you have to put 1 in the box.
For every pound you gain in weight you have to put it in our money box. Ha Ha!

''In three months time we'll count what we've got and go shopping for clothes.''

Cute and supportive. 1st week, my box has 2 in it. xx

'Hey FATTY!'

Thursday, February 24, 2011

Isn't it strange how you remember the face of the total stranger who insulted you years before, yet they don't know who you are or have any idea what they did....

Over a year ago I went with Nick and friends to watch a football match in Derby against Brighton and Hove Albion. We had other reasons for seeing them. You see, we lived in Brighton for 6 years and in that time Nick (my husband) taught PE at high school. Two of the Brighton players were in his school football team.

When we moved into our first house in Brighton the garden was like a jungle. Nick got on great with the families and rallied up four lads from the (15yrs) team to level the garden and help lay the lawn. GREAT COMMUNITY SPIRIT! and they were super kids. They worked hard for 3days and our 3 children were 6mths, 2yrs and 4yrs at the time.

Anyway, as I was saying, Nick got a phone call from Adam (footballer, now 27yrs) to tell him that he was playing in Derby and he would love to see us).
When I returned from buying drinks at half time I noticed Adam warming up on the side line. I knew that he wouldn't find us in such a big crowd so I stood close to the pitch and shouted 'ADAM'.

A guy (Albion supporter) sitting in the bleechers, three rows back shouted, so that everyone could here; ' Hey FATTY, sit down, he's not gonna talk to you'.

Adam did hear me (hopefully not him) and came running over, hugged me and asked where we were sitting. Nick and the kids came running down to see him too. It was great to see him again.
We wished him luck in the game and he went off to play. I turned to the guy on the bench and said ' maybe I am fat, but I can loose weight, you will always have a fat mouth.

The nasty comment that was made that day stayed with me. I'd put it to the back of my mind and filed it with all the other insults or remarks.......until....

at work this week the man with the fat mouth came to visit one of my patients. Same face, same man, but he didn't have those hurtful memories or recognise me.

    What an A**! I don't understand the mentality of a person who would deliberately and casually say something to hurt someone, like it was funny. That was perfect though when Adam came over and hugged you :)
I'm sitting here getting annoyed over it for you LOL! Just keep on enjoying life and your family and living well and good people will always be there emoticon

    I loved this blog & I a firm believer that whatever you do will always come back to you 10 fold, good & bad. So hopefully the 'gentleman' may have lived to regret his cruel words. There are some nasty people around but luckily there are also some wonderful people.

One month in...

Friday, February 18, 2011

Well, its been about a month since the last blog and I've noticed some big changes;

1 .... I've lost lots of body fat and I'm confident to carry on (still got a long way to go).
2 .... I'm halfway to my first goal weight.
3 .... I feel less tired since I started excercising and eating healthier.
4 .... The multi vitamins must be doing something. Hb is back up to 13.3
5 .... I still struggle drinking all the water (peeing for England).
6 .... My skin looks and feels amazing ( not as many blotches and red marks).
7 .... I can get into size 16 jeans (tight but at least I don't have to lay on the bed to zip up.
8 .... I'm not out of breath all the time.
9 .... The palpatations are not as frequent.
10 .. I can now run for the odd few minutes on the treadmill (big achievement).

And some new changes or ones I forgot I could have;

11... The fridge is more colourful inside.
12... I shop cheaper and healthier (saving for a holiday).
13... We eat every night at the dinner table.
14... We cook (not just me) Nick and the kids join in.
15...I'm having more fun with Nick and the kids (We laugh more).
16...I'm less angry, stressed or moody.
13... I've got more energy but feel calm inside.
14...I'm getting more loves and cuddles and its nice to be noticed again.
15... Lots of energy too (enough said).
16... My attitude to life has changed
17... I'm happy and its noticable. its rubbing off on everyone else too.
18... I love my family but I'm starting to like me.

Lots and lotsof changes [oh, but the ironing is still waiting] nothing changed there then!

At the end of week 1

Sunday, January 16, 2011

Well its been my first week back. On the whole I've kept to my plan. I've treaded 3 times this week, I've ate much better; smaller portions, healthier diet, I do struggle with drinking all the water though. Last night for dinner I had rice and spicy vegetables (really enjoyed it). Then I decided to treat myself to a large glass of red wine. BIG MISTAKE! They should print warning labels on these bottles. I felt relaxed and happy THEN I let my guard down.....
I had taken my portion of dinner from the pan and added cream, coconut milk,chicken and oil to what was left to make a thick creamy curry for the rest of the family. I crept into the kitchen with spoon in hand and finished off the left overs. I then got a soft cracker and soaked up the juices from the bottom.
I've learned 2 valuable lessons
1, never make extras.
2, be more aware when drinking alcohol ( or on second thoughts, PUT THE BOTTLE DOWN)

Bandage up my mouth!

Saturday, January 15, 2011

If I'm walking on the treadmill I'm not likely to get off to go to the fridge and gorge.
If I'm typing on the key board with my non nifty fingers I'm not putting the chocolate fingers in my mouth.
When I go out for a meal I tend to be with Nick, my supportive yet, keeps an eye on me other half, PE teacher/husband.
BUT WORK, OMG. Why do kindly, thankful patients and relatives insist on giving us chocolates, and how do you stop from taking a..................................oops. x
