We have been our new house for a few days and I am learning where things live. The cupboards are not full as we haven't brought everything with us and it's good to know how little we need. We have fruit and veg, cold meats, bread and some tea ... Read more

wonderful stuff, hides a multitude of guts and innards. I don't pay too much attention to mine, I have been lucky with it, not "sensitive" or the like. Today was a bit of an eye opener. I had done my thigh measure, not a great deal of change... Read more

Today's weight reflects the week of cooked breakfasts and other delights. I came back with a cold too which caused me to stay indoors for 3 days. I didn't take to my bed but I did stop the walking that has become second nature. So much so tha... Read more

I played with the wording of the blog, it looks like something drastic has happened and so great loads of weight have disappeared overnight. This is not the case! I have been away for 4 nights to a typical British seaside bed and breakfast hot... Read more

The scales said it all. I was almost there last week so today I am below the line. In kilos I lost 1.2 which is just over 2 .6lbs. It's been a funny week, with the bank holiday on Monday, meeting a friend on Tuesday (the day that got lost) an... Read more
