A better attitude and 3 more pounds gone
Saturday, January 15, 2011      11 comments

A loss of 3 pounds has made me very happy – over the commitment of ½ pound per week that I made to the Slowest Loser Team which taught me a very valuable lesson about the merits of slow weightloss - thus avoiding my usual burn-out. This has to... Read more

I have made such slow progress here – I am not consistent by nature – blown by the wind in directions that I shouldn’t really go, in so many respects and therefore not getting results I wish for. I am often ashamed not to do better – here on Sp... Read more

Christmas - happy after all
Friday, December 24, 2010      6 comments

Never thought I'd be as free to enjoy a happy Christmas time in my own home this year but my DIL - with true Scottish grit - has pulled herself back from the edge of a nervous breakdown and is determined that she will be the one who makes a good... Read more
Well . . .

. . . I wasn't expecting to be back home before Christmas but DIL seems to be on the mend and in any case I have to take my partner to the hospital for a day of testing his heart function. My son is 'working from home' until after Christmas thou... Read more

I feel I've been neglecting most of my Spark friends recently and I can't see that changing before next year. I have too much to do - and too many family problems - to give much time here at the moment. I regret that and I hope everyone will ... Read more

It’s been extremely pretty here in Brighton (UK) by the sea in the snow. It is lethally icy on pavements and roads but it looks beautiful. ... Read more

I've had a great succession of weekends with my younger son, his wife and their sons celebrating both their birthdays - 9 days apart. This weekend the parents have had a great time out and about giving each other small treats and personal time ... Read more
YO-YO-ing. What shall I do NOW?
Friday, November 26, 2010      10 comments

My younger son was forty recently and we seem to have been celebrating forever- in one family house or another. I’ve had a great time seeing family that I don’t normally see and even having a conversation with my ex-husband which doesn’t happen ... Read more
Is it a solution? ;-)

My elder son has become increasingly perturbed lately about my weight and shape (‘don’t want to lose you sooner than I have to, Ma’ Aaww!) He and I both know that now, after 18 months on Spark, I am down to approximately 30 pounds overweight, an... Read more
Keeping going no matter what . . .

‘committed to keep on keeping on’ – words I read in a new friend’s blog yesterday – not a new concept here but they certainly spoke to me yesterday. Just wonder how many new starts a person can make? Guess I’m about to find out ... Read more

It's a very long time since I blogged but I have to start back sometime. So here I am. The last blog I posted was entitled 'Back on Board' I see. Well - cancel that! Sadly it was wishful thinking. I've been in a bad space due to various ... Read more

Afraid my resolution to blog every day this month has failed. I have found it really useful for my motivation and certainly found the supportive responses most helpful. I've been busier than I expected to be with non-stop appointments with stu... Read more
Days 19 and 20 - Busy!!
Tuesday, September 21, 2010      5 comments

. . . but busy is good in this instance. Yesterday I was unexpectedly re-allocated from my visiting teachers to a job in a school in Bournemouth for 2 or 3 days. Near my little house and convenient for everyone. Especially for ME - Hoorah... Read more
