Small blog today as I'm using my phone and I havent the patience. Son thought it a good idea to water my laptop.

Put 1lb on this week. Want 13 off in next 6 weeks and 4 days... I go away on the 10th Aug.

Been asda shopping and got plenty of fruit an salad in. Got my S/W books to hand for out Fat Busters meetings (as previously explained I think) Made my salad last night so I have NO excuse. Got fresh pineapple an I've already cut it up so I have NO excuse. Ive also completely cut out sugar/sweetener in tea. Yay me.

Have a great day all!! Xx

  No sugar in tea , what a great achievement it might be a small one but all that sugar adds up as for me l drink alot of coffee and l cant beat the sugar , your making good ground goodonya and as for the fruit and salads also .

    It is not that hard cutting out all added sugar. BUT I insist on having 2-3 squares of dark chocolate most nights. You can be proud of all your preparations. You will reap the benefits.

Good Golly...

Over half way through the year already. Been having problems with the Sky internet but its all sorted now. Still stuck at 12st 5lbs but not worrying, its coming off no matter how slowly.

Meds have changed to allow another baby in about 6months (as in can start trying), Green Tea extract is being taken to help aid my metabolism and im sticking to slimming world.

No longer going to the meeting though. I am angered and disgusted by the conduct of my local leader after only ever having respect for her. She majorly embarrassed me publicly In the middle of a meeting, and was down right rude at the same time. She not only made me feel very unwelcome but she also upset my son - who screamed all the way home as he was dragged away from his two Nannas (my mum and her mum). They have also stopped going because leader has upset them in hber treatment of me. At 1st I thought it was me over-reacting but the more I talk about it to other people the more I'm realising that I'm not. Slimming World is supposed to be a child friendly place because they know mothers want to lose weight too!

Any way, I'm still doing the diet, but we've started our own meetings - in my mums kitchen. We're holding each other to account and having much more fun. Its not a stuffy haha.

Saw B-I-L today, not seen him since xmas, ended up out for dinner but had a SW controlled Meal so I've very proud :)

Going to take Insanity "before" pics in the morning and give it a good go - even if I only manage half of each disk its better than no exercise. I know I've said this before, but I want this baby - and the sooner the weights off the sooner we can try - although I'm happy with a slow weight loss.

Ah well. Sorry for the loonnngg ass blog after.

TTFN, Danielle xx

    Just done 1st 15 mins of Insanity - almost killed me! Haha so unfit! 15 mins all week then 20 mins next week... think that's my best bet! 6 mile walk later (not including walking round Asda doing the shopping) build up slowly with a walk everyday as well. Too much all at once otherwise :) Thanks xx

    It is a pity your leader is not people. Friendly, but you can do it anyway. Especially with your support group! You go, girl!

Cant belive how long its been since I last logged in. My life has been a whirl of hospital and docs apps and "diet" meetings. Thats right ive gone back on Slimming World. I was sooooo hungry all the time Cal counting and so many places dont have the calorie content on menus. At least i can take an educated guess with SW (and usually look it up online before I go) to have a rough estimate.

LOst 3.5lb in 1st week but had a bad one this week. My mums been away an shes my calming influence. I will see what the scales say on Wed.

Hope you are all well,

Good Morning All.

Well that holiday was bliss - and much needed. Not so much the break, but the quality time we had as a family. PalmNova was beautiful and plenty of walking was done. I maintained my weight even drinkng full fat coke, and alcohol, and not touching the salad bar once.

The highlight of my week was when a waitress asked if I was pregnant... NOT!! I happened to feel good before that! haha she was more mortified than me though so thats ok.

Son spent as much time as we allowed in the pool, spent other times playing with his cars and one point took his nappy off and ran around starkers. Think another try with the potty is in order.

We got home late sunday, so monday was a no go day in terms of food until i had been shopping. As you can see by my tracker (I think they're public?) I have stuck to my calories since Tuesday. Hubby brought KFC home on tuesday - I didnt touch it. He ordered a garlic bread for with my home made spag bol, I didnt touch it.

Ive also got to say a HUGE congrats to my mum (not that shes on here to see it) - She started Slimming World while I was away and has been exceedingly determined... shes lost 5&1/2lbs in her 1st week. Im so proud of her!!

Andy said we can change my meds in order to try for a baby - they will take 6-12 months to settle (and get the right balance) so that gives me a minimum of 6 months to lose this weight. I go away again in 13 weeks (BIG family holiday, thankfully with my side not my in laws) and I want a minimum of a stone an half off. It is realistic. Its less than 2lb a week. Insanity starts on monday, needed this week to get all my washing done!

Hope youve all had a fab week, and are having a fab week this week.

Hello all!!

Had a good couple of days calorie wise - but my mental health has taken a battering. I have plenty of problems of my own but my batty SIL has decided that as she has no friends that she will bring her problems to me. Ive become agony aunt to some one else.

(Shes comtemplating leaving her BF of 18yrs and 12 year old son for a 25yr old norweigan fella - who shes only ever spoken to on fb and has known for only 3.5 months)

Plus her current fella (whos in bits) keeps messaging me for updates! I feel like piggy in the middle. Anyway - I've told her that I've done all I can by giving her the advice I have, and that all I can now do is be a sound board. I am NOT a mirical worker. I cannot magically make all this go away and make it all better for her.

So - now doubly looking forward to my week in the sun!!

Also found out that the MIL is havin an affair and has been for over 20 years (with the same bloke she originally left her hubby for) and now sleeps at his house every week. WTH is this family that ive married into?! Think my hubby is the only normal one (time will tell) - even his older br0ther is a serial philanderer.

A day in my life is never simple!

Going to weight myself on friday since I went to the renal docs - just to see what happens on my holidays. Not worrying about what I eat whilst away - I never eat much on holiday.

Hope every one is having a good week :)

    Haha My side of the family is fine. No drama, no problems (not above the normal)

SIL has managed to convince her lont term partner to PAY for her to fly to Norway to meet this guy - whilst feeding LTP that she still wants a rlationship him - for closure. Norway Man has already said he doesnt want anything to do with her, I think she needs medical help. Wouldnt be the 1st time either. Honestly dont know whats going through her head.

    oh boy drama...sounds like your SIL needs a stiff drink and a wake up call, bless you for being there for her. I have a similar relative

I hope your immediate family (nothing with IN LAW in it) is doing better than those around you. Stay strong!
