I am ecstatic! I have finally reached the stage where, when I stand on my scales, the first number that comes up is a 10... now, it may be in the high-ten's - but it's still a ten :)
I do believe that a lot of this weight loss has to do with t... Read more
I don't cope with hot weather very well - apart from hating the feeling of being hot and sticky, my fibromyalgia plays up - even affecting my eyesight!
It's a quarter to four in the morning here, and I have just finished a 2 mile walk with the... Read more
OMGness... just weighed myself a bit early, and have discovered that I dropped 3 pounds this week! I'm a very happy bunny - I just wish I knew what I had done to deserve this weight loss :D I was better at exercising and healthy eating the previ... Read more
There aren't any true short-cuts to losing weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle...
When you're out walking, never cut a corner and take the shortest route - enjoy the extra bit of walking (and maybe the scenery too!)

At my weigh-in this week (Monday) I showed no weight loss at all... but then, I didn't gain either :)
I'm in a good place right now, emotionally - I feel able to cope with this lifestyle and don't feel I am missing out on anything - I know tha... Read more
I have just sat on my backside and gorged on over 2800 calories of RUBBISH!
I have no idea...
It's self-sabotage, and I already feel awful and angry at myself for doing it.
If I had telephoned my eldest daughter, she may have talked... Read more
Life here has been a bit hectic - and so I have had less time to blog and update my weight at SP.
The last two weeks have seen me drop just one pound per week - but at least it's still going in the right direction.
I'm still walking every da... Read more
My eldest daughter wanted to show a friend of hers how I looked, so my youngest daughter took a photograph to send...

Two pounds lost... and I feel a bit disappointed actually. Whilst not trying, and eating in a normal way and having treats, I was losing a pound a week - this last week I have really tried hard, and lost just a pound extra. Funnily, I got on the... Read more
Another one down - just the one pound again... and, again, I'm happy with that. This week, I experimented with eating 'normally'... well, as normally as I can with my intolerance towards so many foods lol.
I had cous-cous with tomato-infused o... Read more
Just one pound down again this week - but I am still okay with that :)
A huge part of me still wants to drop at least 5 pounds a week, but I know that, realistically, at my current weight it's just not sustainable. I would say that 'slow and e... Read more
Last week, I could have had support - but I chose not to reach out. If I ever want someone to tell me to 'buck up!' or 'Don't you dare eat that rubbish!'... well, then I call my eldest daughter. Last week I didn't want someone telling me "NO!!",... Read more
Well, this last week has seen me drop another 2 pounds.
I know it would have been a LOT more if my eating habits were better - but two pounds is a success in my book :)
I have decided to change the way I shop...
No more buying things to... Read more
I have had a pretty good week :)
Wednesday I visited with a friend, Thursday I went to Exbury Gardens and walked (slowly) for over three hours around the beautiful gardens and woodland www.exbury.co.uk/
Friday I had a wonder... Read more
I weighed myself a day early... I couldn't bear to wait another day to see if I had gained again - but it's good news! I have lost - just a little - but it's another small step towards my goal, so I am incredibly happy.
I am now 11 stones and ... Read more
