Time for a Blog

Thursday, May 05, 2011      15 comments

I am not really a blog writer! I do not seem to be able to kick-start myself into putting my thoughts and feelings down 'on paper' or to encapsulate how I feel in a few words. But how valuable it can be to feel able to share with others your ups... Read more

Just a quick update on my recent week. I weighed in at WW this morning and I have lost another pound. I am pretty pleased with this - more would have been nice, but that would be just plain greedy! I have tracked my food all week and have k... Read more
