Reading the paper this week I read an article about "binge drinking", it seems our illustrious government has decreed that 4 standard drinks constitutes "binge drinking". It's official then 90% of Australia are "binge drinkers" and all because somebody with too much time on their hands has decided to lower the bar.
The same is happening with the "obesity epidemic". Good grief it sounds like a germ that you can get. Also in the paper were pictures of football players (six packs and rippling muscles) and according to the BMI they were "obese" Now don't get me wrong, I'm well aware that I need to lose weight and svelte is what I'm not but I detest the term "obese"
We have senators saying they are going to have to do something about the obese. Yeah like what? Stick us in the stocks, refuse us food that some sticky nose decides is not healthy, or maybe stick us in a compound behind a wall so we don't upset the sensibilities of the "normal" people. Who the hell do they think they are? I pay taxes and am a carer for 3 people (who I might say are what these people claim to be the correct size) and am the only healthy one in the family at the moment.
When I take my family members to hospital, I'm amazed at all the "normal" people in there getting treatment, I have never been in hospital and had to use an inhaler only after a particularly bad case of the 'flu. I am sick and tired of being labelled a drain on the health system because of my weight,
To all the politicians and wastes of skin out there, a pox on all your houses!!!
Geez, you reckon I'm pissed??
I'd just like to be able to eat normal food and not have to live on a lettuce leaf and a slice of tomato. If I stuffed my face with cakes and chocolate etc all day I could understand why I'm not losing weight, but as it stands at the moment, my family eat what they like and I put on the weight for them.
So after venting more than Mt St Helens I'd just like to tell all those interfering government numnuts to find something better to do, you know, like fixing the public transport or the public hospital system so that everyone is covered, do the job you are paid to do and stop stuffing around with rubbish that is none of your business.
Thanks to anyone who actually read this, I feel better already just by posting it.
Hope someone can see the funny side of this, I can to a degree.

Not much happening on the weight front this week, nothing dropping off and nothing hopping on. Had a check up at the doctors and things are looking pretty good considering the lack of weight loss. My blood pressure has dropped (although I do think that it has a lot to do with menopausal symptoms disappearing) and I haven't had to use an inhaler for over six months. All in all the doc seemed pretty happy, he says when the hormones settle down I might see a change in metabolism, God I hope so. Things are picking up at home as well, Mum is looking much better, thanks to all who sent their best wishes.
Hope you have a chuckle at the funny this week, I had to edit out a swear word but I think that we can all imagine what he said.
Hope everybody has a great weekend.
PS The sleepies have disappeared as quickly as they came, at least I'm not snoozing all the time any more.

For Gods' sake, somebody prod me, I can't seem to keep awake. I think I copped a dose of sleeping sickness from somewhere. By about 9.00pm every night my eyelids are closing (no, I'm not checking them for cracks!), it's embarrassing.
I would like this whole month to just get up and go away. What a stinker it has been, I haven't lost any weight, I don't seem to have the time to do anything, and every time I log on to do anything I can feel my eyes closing, it's enough to make you ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzz Oops sorry, dropped off again.
I've got to get some get up an go (I think mine has got up and gone). It doesn't help when the mornings are so cold all you want to do is turn over and think about getting up.
I'm so sorry if I haven't replied to people, when my internet explorer clags (and it's doing it more often lately) I just turn off the computer in total disgust (after questioning and abusing Bill Gates parentage, intelligence and usefulness etc).
I'm hoping to pick up soon and jump start my weight loss, goodness knows it needs it.
Till then, have a good one everyone

Hi to all,
Well this has been such a crappy week to say the least.
My mum ( one of the people who I care for) has had a recurrence of a medical problem (Polymyalgia Rheumatica) which is an AutoImmune disease (like Lupus etc). It has flared up here and there and when it does it makes here extremely susceptible to piggyback problems. This time it was a fungal infection (she has had this before) needless to say the results were unpleasant for her and for those who look after her. Pleased to say, after much pushing on my behalf to the doctor, that she has now recovered and is on her way to better health.
I have to say I have been as busy as a one-legged man at a bum kicking contest. I log on, read my emails, try to say hi to a few people and post here and there then log off again. If I haven't replied to anyone, I have not forgotten, I will get there eventually.
I haven't weighed myself, but I fear that I may have put back on a pound or so. When you are tired, you seem to say that'll do as far as food and I have done just that, but I hope this week will be a little better and I can get back on track.
Fear not, I have mustered up another funny this week, so I hope we can all have a chuckle.
'Till next time

Hi to all who are reading,
1/2 a pound off this week, well cut my legs off and call me shorty, what can I say?
Well it's better than a poke in the eye with a burnt stick, not much but better than nothing.
Things on the family front are a little better this week only a couple of doctors appointments and my car in for a service.
If I'm lucky that means another pub lunch somewhere.
Thanks to all the people who have commented, sent goodies etc I am really glad to have met you all and I'm happy I've made a few of you laugh.
I hope everyone out there is doing well at the moment.
PS Contrary to popular belief, this is not me feeding the cat.
