So near, yet so far..........

Another Friday has come round yet again.... these weeks are just flying by. Its weigh in day today, and after my rather premature celebration last weekend of dipping into the 11's on Saturday for just a brief while... (obviously purely down to dehydration from my vodka intake Friday night) Im afraid to say that Im back up to 12st ... :O( .... Having said that, I have still lost 1 pound since my last official weigh in last Friday. So in that respect, I should be happy...well sort of...still want to be in the blooming 11's though...but hey...maybe next week ......if I chop my leg off perhaps :O/ ....

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

Two steps forward and one step back ..... :O(

Thats how I feel today. Weight has gone up by a pound YET AGAIN !!! Back to 12st 1 lb ....gggggrrrrrrrrrrr...... when will I ever get into those bloody 11's ???

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

Ok so I'm halfway through my week with ww. Ive been very good. Pointed everything. Drank loads of water. Even did a very long walk on Sunday which is the first in many weeks..... so why oh why are the scales showing a 2lb gain ...?? It did this to me last week....then luckily, come weigh day, it sorted itself....and I lost a pound.
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

Up at 3.45am on a Saturday morning.... WTF ?


Why is it, whenever I have a bad nights sleep, its always on the blooming weekend when I should be having a lay in !! How annoying is that !! Woke up for a pee at 3.45 this morning and could I get back to sleep? Could I f*ck !! So here I am in my little virtual world of blogland.... where I love to be with my thoughts that I only share with you guys.


There is a lot going round in my head at the moment. Im on the verge of placing my house up for sale.... Ive lived in it for 19 years, reared my 3 beautiful daughters in it, but yet, I feel its time to move on.... so why is it the idea makes me tearful, excited, worried, happy.... :O/ ..........??? Ive been wanting to move for a while now....Oh what to do ! You see, Ive fallen in love with a bungalow, about 10 minutes away from here, and yes we can afford it. There are 3 other couples interested in it aswell, so its now a race to sell all our properties and place a decent offer. Do I, don't I, Do I, don't I ..........

Another pound bites the dust !

Well the title says it all, but how did that happen !! All week the dreaded SP's were saying that I had gained a pound, so being ultra careful had a really light tea last night, jumped on the scales this morning and woooooo hoooooo a pound lost !! YAY !! Bang on 12st now............. hopefully dipping my toes in the 11's next week.

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

what a brill weekend :O) ....
















Hi guys...

Feeling really happy today. Ive had a lovely weekend. Firstly Friday I met up for lunch with the lovely Karon. We went to Prezzo this time, which was lovely. We shared a garlic bread for starters and had a lovely meal... I think it was called pollo siciania ??!! Grilled chicken breast, with tomatoes, pancetta, and cheese over the top.... delicious !! This was served with gratinated potatoes...potatoes in more cheese....ooooops !! And there was me moaning about my weight on Friday !! Must try harder !! It really was delicious, and have pointed it at around 13, but not sure if thats right .. :O/.....if anyone knows any different, I would really appreciate it . It was lovely seeing Karon again, we always natter for a few hours, but it never seems enough time. Looking forward to the next time 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
