Im beginning to wonder if I will every get in and stay in the 11's now. My body is just not letting it happen. Maybe I have reached the stage where my body wants to be. I would dearly love to be 11 stone, but maybe I should just start thinking how far I have come. Ive lost 96 pounds in total, which Im sooooooo happy with. I feel better. I look better. So why am I itching to lose another stone? Im not even going to attempt to get back to weight watchers goal weight, I would have to be 9st 11 pounds for my height, and the last time I got there, I looked so thin, and Im now 7 years older than I was then, so dont really think it would do me any favours to look like that now. So yes 11 stone I would like to be, and I will keep plugging away, but there is a little voice in my head saying to me that I dont look too bad, so as long as I dont gain anymore weight, then maybe I shouldnt be so hard on myself. Thats the theory anyway, just have to put it into practice now, and see what happens.
Its been a busy old week. Done an extra days work this week as overtime, and Im doing the same next week. The extra money will certainly come in handy for christmas and the pending move in the new year. My house is now officially up for sale and we have our very first viewers coming to look at it tomorrow afternoon at 2pm....eeeeeeeekkk. It sounds quietly promising. Even before any pictures were put on the estate agents internet, these people, that already live in the same town, saw that it was soon to become available, and they wanted to view it! Hopefully that is a good sign. They already know the town, the area, the street in which I live, and want a bigger property.....so all in all, looking positive. I will keep you posted. I had the sad news this week that the little bungalow I was after has been sold :O( ............. however, I dont let the grass grow under my feet, and have two other properties to look at tomorrow. One at 10 am , and the other at 11 am.... its a good job they are not too far apart...only about 10 minutes maximum, so should be able to do both. So looking forward to it and quite excited about the prospect of it all happening. So watch this space.
Finally before I leave you all, I met up with the lovely Karon again for lunch today at prezzos. Another really scrummy dinner we had....far too much of it though !!! . She is such a lovely person. The little darling bought me a whole range of weight watcher products for me to try, and some lovely low fat sausages that look scrummy...cant wait to try them all. Thank you hunnie, your an angel. Looking forward to our night out ;O) ....
So thats it for now folks. Hope your all doing ok. I have seen a few down beat blogs lately. Hope your all feeling a bit better or happier now. I also want to wish Sarah from http://thinfor30.blogspot.com a speedy recovery in hospital . Take care everyone. Bye for now x x x

Getting really fed up with this yo-yoing. I gain, I lose, I gain..... its a viscious circle. Its so annoying especially on the weeks where you really know you have stuck to plan 100% like this week.
To make me even more fed up, I have just looked back on my weigh in results and found that I actually got into the 12 stones on July 17th ..... 4 months later Im still in them .... :O(
I have also realised I have missed my next target to get into the 11's by the 1st November..... 3 weeks overdue and still not there.... ho hum ..... :O( ....... will now set that target back to December 8th (my birthday). This gives me another 2 and a half weeks to get there. So badly want to get into the 11's, its a head thing really, phsycologically it will make me feel fantastic....
So for now, back to the grindstone ....... watch this space .... x

Yes I know I shouldn't SP, but I can't help it. It somehow keeps me on the straight and narrow. But I must admit, on weeks like this, when I know Ive been 100% with everything, it does feel like a kick in the teeth for the scales to be going in the wrong direction..... I can only hope, that again this week, they sort themselves out for weigh day ...all I need is half a pound and I will be in the 11's .................
On a much lighter note..... I have eventually decided to put the house up for sale..... my little bungalow may become a reality after all ... :O_).....so watch this space x x x

I had been really good and in control all week. My time occupied by cleaning the house from top to bottom, instead of lurking in the kitchen. I have a valuer coming to value my house in about half an hours time. Fingers crossed he says what I want him to say :>) ........... the good thing is the house is sparkling and I must have certainly earnt a few BP's all week.... and further more the girls bedrooms look like bedrooms now instead of the local dumping ground !!!!!!! YAY !! So if all else fails, at least I have a clean house.
Work is taking a turn for the better. My boss had a word with me , and wants me to take over the marketing side of the company. He has also said that he wants to start training me up to take over as Practice Manager when Patricia retires in a couple of years..... eeeeeeeekkkkkk...... promotion !! Just hope it doesn't put other peoples noses out of place that have been there a lot longer than me !! Looking forward to taking on extra responsibility.... so watch this space.
All in all, a successful week. Just need a good valuation on the house, and I will be a happy bunny. I have my lovely niece Joanne coming round tonight to go through some old piccys. She is sorting out a personalised calendar for mum for christmas...... it will be nice to catch up with her x

So Saturday was halloween if you hadn't noticed ! As explained earlier, I was going out as a witch with a group of friends from my local pub..... oh boy !! What a night !! Didnt end up going home til 2 in the morning with hubby, ever so slightly rat-arsed :) ...... sang my little heart out on the karaoke, danced til I dropped, and discovered I can still do the splits !!! WTF !!! .... what a giggle. A great night was had by all. Hope you like the piccy's ...x
All in all .... a lovely weekend... hope you all had a great weekend too. For the first time in ages, I feel good x x
P.s..... I had a naughty SP on Saturday morning, the scales said 12st 2 !! Yay !!... this morning (Sunday) they said 12st 1lb.... YAY !! I know its not set in stone until Friday, and I realise the drop today is probably due to dehydration from my night out, but the Saturday morning SP at 12st 2lb ..........is a loss of 2 pounds.... fingers crossed it stays like that x x x
