I don’t blog enough – principally because I only really want to grizzle about slow progress and how boring is that for everyone? I really hoped to be 14lb down today – yeah – I know – strange number but I’m in the UK and am accustomed to si... Read more

I’ve been away for a few days in great countryside – we don’t have nearly as much of that here in the UK as you all have there – so it’s a real joy. I’ve done my garden there – ‘put it to bed for the winter’ and walked in both rain and sun roun... Read more

First of all – as we don’t have Thanksgiving in the UK I have not been obliged to struggle with all those food temptations. Christmas will be another thing but we haven’t got there yet. I thought I would dance down this road I started on wit... Read more

. . . but there are many days when I wonder how determined I really am. I lost a few pounds and have let them return and have not really done anything about that. I have just returned from a birthday party in London - an 80th birthday. She... Read more

Today I am kind of starting over - and with attitude! I have done all the exercise I planned, had a careful breakfast and am about to leave the house with my pedometer. All of this makes me feel more positive and so much better in myself... Read more

I started off 2 months ago with SP and felt such determination but somehow I haven't done particularly well - not really with the weight and certainly not the exercise because I can't shed my idleness. I love this website - it has made me think... Read more
