Slow but steady progress
Monday, October 19, 2020      4 comments

I'm not a great blogger, I don't write very often. But I feel maybe this could encourage someone else, and I want to record for myself the progress I have made. At the moment I seem to be on a slow, but steady weight loss of 5 pounds a mont... Read more
How to ignore an UberEats discount offer!
Friday, July 24, 2020      2 comments

I just had an email telling me I have an UberEats discount. Not really what I want to hear right now. Last week was awful, I ended up ordering junk food twice and gained 5 pounds on weigh in day. This week was much better. I feel better, I'... Read more
off the wagon on the wagon

I am so fed up with being off the wagon on the wagon. I'm back on and trying to focus on doing things one day at a time. Very pleased with 3lb weight loss this week, and even more pleased with being able to control my eating from day to day. Tra... Read more
And ... back again
Saturday, November 16, 2019      2 comments

Back on Spark, back from the Middle East, back from the year's course, back in the UK. I'm feeling rather discouraged (all the rain in Manchester doesn't help) but keep picking myself up and trying again. I love being near my new grandson, and m... Read more

This is going to be the year that I practise gratefulness. Should be easy right? Just regularly post something I'm grateful for instead of panicking and worrying about everything that has gone/can go wrong. Today I'm grateful because I have... Read more
Ready for another week
Sunday, November 10, 2013      1 comments

I had a good week last week. I didn't weigh myself every day which is a big thing for me - I'm really obsessive about it. And the funny thing is, I didn't really miss it that much. And then it was even more of a surprise to find that I'd lost... Read more
The deed is done!

After last week's frantic blog, I'm doing a lot better this week! Even though I've gained a pound, I'm feeling a lot better within myself and feel back on track. Thanks to the encouragement of my friends (including my good friend on Spark!) I h... Read more
spinning plates
Sunday, October 27, 2013      3 comments

I'm struggling a bit today. Mainly because I'm trying to spin too many plates. So, I'm trying to work out exactly how many plates I am spinning at the moment and seeing if I can reduce that, because if I'm too stressed I end up doing nothing a... Read more
Steady does it!!

So, over the last five months I've been losing a steady pound a week (with the occasional plateau to then make up for it after a couple of weeks). I'm really pleased, people are starting to notice. Generally they're asking: so, what diet are yo... Read more
surprised by my attitude change
Sunday, July 21, 2013      2 comments

So, today I watched myself do something different. I went to a BBQ party and ate rather a lot. When I came home and tracked my food, I realised I didn't have enough calories left to eat dinner. ... Read more
brilliant surprise

Listen to this! I hate returning things when I've bought the wrong thing. So I bought some trousers which were way too big and I finally returned them today after a lot of umming and ahing. Bought a different pair but only could find them in s... Read more
not a good day, but still on track!
Friday, July 05, 2013      1 comments

So today was not good. Actually it was pretty awful. Ok, so it was really cr-p! My boss went on holiday at lunchtime for a week and left rather a mess. And after lunch all hell broke loose. Everyone wanted everything doing all at once, I had... Read more
Update - still going strong!
Friday, June 07, 2013      1 comments

It's about time I write an update. I've been so busy, it's unreal. But in the midst of all that I've made time to log my food and to exercise and regularly walk. So I'm very pleased with myself. Someone is coming in to decorate my bedroo... Read more

When I came back from my holiday, I fell on my way home and somehow hurt my ribs. I keep thinking I'm ok now and can go back to exercising, and surprisingly the exercising isn't too bad. It's the sleeping (or rather lying on my side) that hurt... Read more
