Thankyou so much to everybody who gave me the encouragement I needed on my last blog, you were all so helpful that it's working LOL I've had a great week-end.
I've eaten sensibly, exercised consistently and drank my water with a vengeance.
I was a bit wary about getting weighed this morning as it's only two days since I got back on track and I thought if I'd gained, as you can in the week, it might put me off but I've taken the bull by the horns and...nothing's changed! so I'll weigh-in next Monday as usual, hopefully with a loss!!
The dormouse picture is because that's how I felt at the end of last week and now I'm changing all that...I've come out of hibernation! LOL

It's been a while since I've written a blog so I've just re-read my past ones and I'm ashamed of myself.
I log-in every day, get my Spark points, take part in group discussions, help run a team, encourage people, welcome new members, talk to my friends, the list goes on, I do everything.......everything that is but lose weight!!
I haven't lost weight for three weeks and it's not a plateau....it's ME......ME who's NOT eating properly!
I start off great every morning, full of 'get up and go' and by dinnertime it's 'got up and gone'!!
The nice weather is here and things don't fit properly.
I've gained twelve pounds so I've given myself a dressing down and today I'm back planning and eating the right stuff, drinking the water and walking the miles, (actually the walking & drinking never stopped so it wasn't all bad and I'm definitely fitter!!) I'm determined to get back on track with my eating.
I've altered my ticker and will weigh-in every week on a monday again.
It's only two days until then but it might spur me on if I've lost a little bit otherwise I'll weigh-in weekly as I used to.
I CAN do it

We seem to have had nothing but snow for well over a week now and we just aren't used to it...well not this much.
I've been walking daily, until yesterday, taking my photos which I love doing.
I even escaped injury on Tuesday when a car ran out of control and ended up right where I'd been standing two minutes before.
My DH also had a lucky escape Tuesday when a van ran into him, luckily just car damage to both vehicles.
It rained overnight on Wednesday and again last night and the paths are so slippery I daren't go out now.
The tree picture was taken from the front room window, it's now snowing again, sleety stuff but it's bitterly cold and windy.
Hopefully it won't settle and I can start to go out again...why do you always miss what you can't have?
I like snow really, just not this much!!

I just want to wish all my friends a Very Happy Thanksgiving.
We don't celebrate it here in England but I hope you all have a wonderful time with your friends & families.
I'm going to celebrate by thinking about all the good things in my life and give thanks for them.

Well, I'm officially a pensioner and can draw my first payment today.
I turned 60 yesterday and despite the last months of illness etc. I feel fine about it.
I'm fit and healthy (at last!!!) and once again enjoying life.
We had a great week-end with family up in the Yorkshire dales.
It was lovely to see everyone and I really enjoyed it.
I was very good foodwise, though there was cake! and have manged to stay the same weight as last week, though I think it's more good luck than good management...well, you're only 60 once and I'm been taken out to lunch again today so I'll still need to keep my 'goodie-goodie' cap on for another day!
We walked a lot, visited a mere and watched the spectacle of geese, ducks and swan that have come in to overwinter.
I even got to stroke the head of a young Whooper swan, still so fluffy and soft even though he was old enough to have flown in from abroad.
The weather was cold but fine, proper autumn weather...picture postcard frosty, and I was doing what I like best.
I couldn't have wished for anything better.
