Our trip to India started badly, and rapidly got much, much worse. It's a long story, but we went to Kashmir on the spur of the moment to stay on a houseboat, and they held us hostage till we agreed to buy a tour of Rajasthan! Well of course w... Read more

We're off to India this weekend, only because we've never been before. We will have internet access while there, but will be eating out all the time, and sparking will be impossible so won't even try. I'm on a plateau (65kilos) it's the lowest... Read more

Enough of embracing the plateau

The good news is that since I stopped using the Nutrition Tracker every day, I haven't gone back to my old habits. I'm really miserly with olive oil now - I used to really splosh it about. And I don't spread fat on my bread, and try to be care... Read more

Stupid eating: cream cakes shut me up

Monday, August 02, 2010      1 comments

Almost three months since I've blogged here. Weight loss has really slowed down now - actually put on half a kilo last week, but I'm not too bothered. I'm still careful of what I eat, but now only weigh some things. I still go to the gym thre... Read more

Feet under no table but my own

Saturday, May 08, 2010      3 comments

I've been tracking my exercise lately, but although I start each day tracking breakfast, and sometimes lunch, I rarely weigh my dinner these days. We live in central London and my husband likes going out to eat. There are always special offers... Read more

Last week 67.8, this week 68.8 - of course I'm pissed off. But I'm just back from a week visiting my daughter and grand daughters, and there is a particular reason. My eldest grand daughter is recovering from anorexia nervosa, and trying hard ... Read more

The Poetry Girls are back in town

Saturday, February 20, 2010      2 comments

We're starting Friday morning poetry again, so shifting weigh-in day to Saturday, when I have more time. After a 3 weeks plateau - think arriving back in freezing London sent bod into shock - the scales are slowly moving southwards again. Wish... Read more

Tuesday, February 02, 2010      2 comments

Sitting in the cinema yesterday (Up in the Air with George Clooney - excellent film) found myself fiddling with my wedding ring. I used to munch popcorn, but don't miss it, I fiddle with matrimonial jewellery instead. Found I was slipping it o... Read more

After a long time hovering around 70 and 69 kilos, over Christmas and New Year, in Australia and Malaysia, where food is different, new, interesting and fresh, I've finally got my first reading which begins with 68! I didn't put on weight while... Read more

After a good night's sleep I'm ready to start Sparking properly again. Yesterday was all airline food (Malaysian Airlines, so not too bad) and 13 hours sitting, but starting this morning I'm back on the wagon. Not sure if gym will let me go be... Read more

Green Shorts Falling Down Again - Spark People to blame

Thursday, January 07, 2010      2 comments

We're in Port MacQuarie now, and it looks as if the exercise here is going to be a ten minute walk through the rainforest, down to the beach and then walking forever. We agreed to walk for 45 minutes, then turn around, otherwise we'd end up bac... Read more

BBQ'd cucumber?

Tuesday, December 22, 2009      1 comments

It's getting harder to log food now, because I'm in a foreign country, and although the language is the same, and I have scales in the kitchen, many foods are unfamiliar and it takes ages. Also, because we are in Australia, and he's a bloke, be... Read more

Can't find where to record weight

Thursday, December 10, 2009      3 comments

11 Dec 09 This has been driving me nuts for weeks - can't find where on SP you can record changes in your weight. In a way I don't care, because now away from my home scales, the changes have a bit less meaning. However, it's Friday, my weig... Read more
