I'm happy LOL

Saturday, January 19, 2013

I have had a great start for the year, as many of you know I went away for a week to help Susie SUSIEPH1) celebrate her 70th birthday. A long drive but I did it with no problems at all and it was a very hot day when I left.

I learnt lots while I was with Susie about eating and I have increased my calories, which i confess I have been told to before, but I knew better. Well so far this year I have lost 2.3 kgs. which is about 5 lbs. So I am over the moon with.

I also went over to Whyalla with my son to pick up his children today and we had decided to drive down the coast, so I have drove another 460kms (about 285 miles) today.

For so many years I have said "I Can't" I have now proved I can and now must get this my head and realise I can do anything I want.

I can do it. What a great feeling.

    It really IS a wonderful thing when we discover that a lot of our limitations are things we created--and those personal perceptions can be changed... emoticon that is emoticon

LOVE YA, GIRLFRIEND!

    Well done Wendy. Yes we can do anything we put our mind to. Congratulations on your weight loss so far this year...brilliant news.

I too had to increase my calories last year, I went from averaging 800-1000 now I am meant to have 1200. I still don't always get to the 1200 but I try. Yep it helped me to start losing again. My initial 30kg was lost on the 800 but I stayed there for several years, now I am down another 17kg.

Keep up the good work and stay strong dear lady.

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

I arrived home this afternoon from Mildura. A six hour drive but it was so much cooler today. we finally had a cool change. I had a lovely time with Susie and her family. I learnt so much re the diet. It is amazing to see how and what other people eat. I thought I was eating pretty good but I realise I can clean it up a more. (Change again LOL).

It will take me a couple of days to catch up as when I logged on to my computer I had a 300 messages.

I did keep a record of what I ate and how much exercise I did. I will hopefully get time tomorrow to log this in.

Pretty tired at the moment.

Thank you everyone who has commented on my last few blogs while I was away.

cheers
Wendy

    It is always nice to get away for a bit and to learn something while you are away is even better.

    Glad you enjoyed the party, Wendy. I know Jason and your Grandies names and Susie is not one of them so am presuming a friend of yours. Well I'm glad you had a good time.

I bet it's extremely hot over there. We hit record temperature here yesterday for Tasmania. It's still 'beastly' hot and I am so pleased there is a thing called 'gravity' as it's helping me stay seated in my chair. Can't really be bothered moving as is too hot.
