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
My poor little Yorkie isn't well - it's already cost a fortune in vets fees, and we're no closer to finding out what's wrong really. It's a game of "Wait & See"... which is why I believe I'm feeling down.
However, feeling down is one thing - b... Read more
The herb garden... and the rest of the garden too - from overgrown and wild to a bit more tamed :)
The garden was bare except for the lilacs when we moved in... so the first thing to add was the fish pond, followed by the decking, swing seat a... Read more
So... Between Monday and Friday last week, I gained 6 pounds - not good at all. Between Friday and today, I lost 3 of those pounds - so I gained a total of 3 pounds. Still not good - but at least I did have that weigh-in at the doctors which has... Read more
I have a herb garden! It's not finished yet - I have to wait for the Moroccan mint, dill, parsley and sage plants to arrive - but everything else is planted, and I'm so happy. I have tomatoes, runner beans, rhubarb, bell peppers, and strawberrie... Read more
To help combat my low feelings after a 6 pound weight gain, I decided to mow the lawn. Well, that's how the afternoon started... After about 6 hours, my garden is looking quite tidy - I pulled up weeds, cut back bushes - even pulled up a small t... Read more
I had to go for my annual review for both my diabetes and asthma at the doctors today. Part of the health-check was a quick jump on the scales... something I usually dread, but I wasn't worried at all today - until I actually saw the needle risi... Read more
This Saturday past, I did something I haven't done in about seven years... I went for a pillion ride on hubby's motorbike.
What made this day extra-special was actually not being able to squeeze into my leather jacket. Hubby is VERY strict on... Read more
I decided that from now on, I would be weighing myself wearing 'normal' clothes instead of just a lightweight nightgown - after all, I wouldn't wear a flimsy nightdress for every day wear!
So... today my weight (fully clothed) is 170 pounds.

I have had a very bad week...
I've been in terrible pain, which has meant that I have limited any exercise to just walking the dog each day... and I have made terrible choices with my eating habits.
My meals have included:

I am overweight, fat, wobbly, rotund, saggy, wrinkly, overtly rubenesque, curvy, and may have more rolls than the local bakery... but one thing I am NOT any more, is obese.
According to my BMI, I am now just one pound under the weight I need t... Read more
I am having a 'low' day... feeling very 'bleugh'.
My weigh-in was a good one - though I have no idea how or why - once again I have been quite indiscriminate about my eating habits last week - maybe if I'd had a gain it would jolt me into heal... Read more
In the past 48 hours, we have had almost every weather known...
Brilliant sunshine, snow, rain, thunder, sleet, hail, frost, fog, mist...
How very English lol
I have still walked the dog every day - the poor wee thing has been frozen, s... Read more
