Things are looking good

Thursday, March 13, 2008

Well I am feeling pretty good at the moment, 12.8 lbs lost since the start of January, not a huge amount but noteworthy (for me) all the same.
While I can't see a huge change in the mirror, clothes that were very snug are considerably looser now.

We are going through a heat wave here at the moment, today is 40 deg C (104 deg F), yesterday was 38 and the rest of this week is going to be above 35 deg, it's a matter of getting everything done as early as possible as the gets pretty unbearable after 12.00.

This is the weather we were supposed to have in February but somehow it all got skewed up and we had a cold snap instead.
I have to make sure the animals are comfortable and cool in this heat, if I could bring them in under the AC I would!!!

I had to get rid of my "Save the Whale" profile picture as someone must have complained about it, it made me laugh every time I saw it and many of my friends here said it was hilarious. Goes to show some peoples' sense of humour is not as hearty as mine!! Let's hope that nobody finds my cartoons offensive.

I hope everyone out there is doing well with their weight loss and hope to talk to you all soon.

    12.8 is awesome! I think it's a great loss! :)

Someone complained about your save the whales??? Like they sent a complaint or something? I thought it was funny! People are silly. Sorry about that.

Our weather has been insane, too, so I completely relate. My sinuses are going insane.

Big Deal!

Well nothing of worth on the weight loss this week, only about 50grams, but I have lost 2 cm off my hips. I'm sure my body is still deciding whether to let go of the weight or not.

I read somewhere that 1200 to 1400 calories is considered a weight loss amount, so at the moment I have no intention of starving myself, I can't see any benefit in cutting back drastically on food to lose weight only to put it back on when you eat normally.

Anyway, things have been pretty good around the farm this week, the weather can't make up it's mind, one day air-conditioner, next day heater.

I hope all the other Sparkers (especially my friends) have had a good week. I hope you enjoy the funny this week.



Stuck in the Hole Again!

Hi all, hope you are all doing well.
Things are static on the weight loss scene at the moment, nothing has came off and the centimetres haven't moved. I suppose that is good in one respect, at least it didn't go up!
Hi to all that commented on my Spark page and to all my friends.
Enjoy the funny this week, and see you all soon.


Out of the Hole.

Well cut my legs off and call me shorty! I finally dropped a little weight. It's been hanging on there for a couple of weeks, I was thinking that was it as far as the weight loss was going. Guess my bod was just figuring out what to do (well at least that's my story). Some of my friends have also lost weight and to them I send congrats and hugs, it feels sooooo good to be actually doing something for ourselves that counts.

Hope you all enjoy the funny I found on one of my web searches and as they say "see you in the funny pages"!!


There must be something wrong with my scales!

Thursday, February 14, 2008

I have only lost 1/2 a pound this week, but for some strange reason my measurements are changing. I have lost 2 cm off my hips and waist. I haven't done anything different, so I have come to the conclusion that I must turf out my old scales and get a new set. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it!!!)
Anyway the weather here is just ridiculous the last few days have been chilly and today is hot, how am I supposed to work out what to eat when the weather can't make up it's mind.
Have a chuckle on me with my weekly cartoon (I hope I don't upset some copyright, these are cartoons that I collected years ago and stuck in a book for days that I needed a laugh)
See you soon
