Well the weight is staying the same, but the measurements are changing.
I was told it was like re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic, now I now the body's not looking like it should, but a wreck!!!
Anyhoo, as I said the weight does not seem to want to change but the tape measure is registering something. I don't know where it's going but there it is...
I hope everyone out there is healthy and doing well.

No difference this week, surprise, surprise, surprise.
My brothers birthday today, 49 years old. I did a big sponge covered with cream, passion fruit and mangoes.. I'm sure I put on 5 pounds just looking at the thing. Meanwhile he announces that he has lost a couple of pounds eating the same as me.
There is an Aussie saying "May your chooks (chickens) turn into emus and kick your dunny (toilet) down" I reckon he deserves chooks the size of hippos!!
I've worn myself out fixing up the garden ready for winter veggies, shearing the one goat we have (not an easy job when she wont stay still), cleaning up the collected crap around the place and still I don't lose weight. Not fair I say.
I showed my brother the cartoon included this week today, he just about gagged with the idea, I just about peed my pants at his reaction and at the funny.
I hope somewhere out there someone lost some pounds, come to think of that's probably where mine went!

I'm getting sick of writing this but nothing new on the weight loss front.
I think I'll have to bite the bullet and risk the snickers and guffaws of my family and do some serious exercising. I've got an old Richard Simmons (don't laugh) exercise tape floating around. Believe it or not if you tune out his voice it is a good 60 minute workout, from the top of the head to the tip of the toes (and all bits and pieces in between).
I had a pub lunch today along with the requisite couple of beers, it was great to have someone else cook the meal for once and NO dishes.
I have joined a couple of new teams this week and met more great people, thanks to all who commented on my page and profile picture. Life's too short not to have a chuckle at things and in saying this I hope you have a laugh at the funny this week.
Good Luck to everyone with their program.

Hi all in Blogland,
Things here are pretty much same old, same old. The weight is just hanging on there, now there is something odd about this as my clothes are much looser, so where the devil is the weight that shows up on my scales all the time.
My scales and I are having this tussle at the moment and if it doesn't show my pounds moving, I'm afraid I'll just have to turf the offending item and try a newer model. Pity I can't do that with various parts of my body.
I have been very domestic this week, bottling, jam making etc due to a bumper crop in the garden. I know this doesn't sound exciting, but it relaxes me and is ultimately satisfying to see all that you've done looking back at you in bottles etc.
The cold weather has set in here (not that I'm feeling much of it, very hot blooded I am), but at least I can look forward to more hearty food and not salad every day.
I hope everyone likes the funny this week, I must admit it makes me chuckle to see Darth Vader changing the globe in his light sabre. Doing his bit for global warming maybe?
I hope everyone has had good luck this week and I look forward to hearing from as many as possible.

Hi to all my friends.
Nothing on the weight loss this week, is 12 lbs off too early to hit a plateau?
The weather has changed here from Summer (hot, hot, hot) to Winter, Autumn (Fall) got lost somewhere.
Anyway, now salads have bit the dust, and casseroles, slow cooker recipes and soup now look to be on the menu. This could be a blessing in disguise as there seems to be less calories in casseroles and soup than in Summer food. Go figure!
We have been having a run of good luck here, no major medical emergencies and the animals are doing well, hope this keeps up.
I'm hoping everyone is losing weight and is keeping happy, see you all next week.
