Did everyone enjoy their Mothers' Day?? Kevin assisted Vicki to create dinner yesterday - it was very unusual, but completely fat free. She finally went back to Leeds yesterday evening - no explanations, but she says she might be back later on this week.

I had to explain my auction website addiction to Kevin yesterday (oh dear!!) I 'won' a Slendatone muscle toning set - shop value 140 I got it for 28.50. I am hoping it will do something to make me look a bit less pregnant - my tummy muscles have always been a bit useless but every since my hysterectomy they have been virtually non-existent. I'm not expecting miracles, but just to go down from looking 7 months pregnant to maybe 4 months pregnant would be nice.

Kevin was quite good about it really - probably had something to do with the fact that he had just brushed George indoors and there was black fur swirling around and settling on every horizontal surface, clinging to fabric surfaces and rolling around in large clumps on the floor - I think he realised he should have done it outdoors when I pointed out that it would take me about 4 hours to put right the mess he had managed to create in 2 minutes!!!! (I can't wait for moulting to end...!) How come the dogs on Crufts don't moult??

Had to go to the doctors today for my regular check up (and thankfully it was all clear). Had to weigh in which I wasn't overly looking forward to, but weighed in at 187.5. Which either means, the scales at home are out by half a pound, or I've already lost half a pound this week since I started the diet. I'm hoping it's the latter!

Though it's hard to say, the numbers on the scale at home, are small and when I bend down to read them the little meter thing suddenly starts moving again so I can't read it..

Well I stepped off plan well & truly this weekend. I ate - chinese, chips & curry sauce, kids birthday party food (lots of chocolate krispise cakes). I drank - wine & vodka - not in the same glass & I didn't do one workout. Although I did play the games at the birthday party does that count ??

Definately putting this weekend down to experience and have picked myself up & dusted myself off to carry on with all the good work I've done so far.

I was going to go for a walk earlier but the wind has got up again, making it difficult to stay vertivcal, so I passed and did my Tae Bo tape instead. It is getting easier I only drank a pint of water during the vid today. Usually I have to stop the tape to go & refill my glass

I am hoping to get my exercise bike out later on, maybe when Eastenders is on the telly, or anything else vaguely amusing. I am then planning on jumping - not literally - into a hot bath along with an imaginery glass of wine - which in real life will be a pint of blackcurrent juice.

Got loads to do between now & then, not in the least homework & dinner.

See you all later

Carol

Well done Carol...thats the key to success...letting yourself go, but then having the strength to get yourself right back on track.

I had a nice mothers day...cooking, cleaning, washing, Ironing
then son started to be ill, looks like he has caught this flu bug that I'm just getting over...I knew he was really ill when he didn't keep mithering to go on the internet

First day back at work since I started to feel better today, and I have to say I am completely shattered, I don't think you realise just how much it can take out of you when you haven't been well. I was going to go back to the gym tomorrow, I still think I will go, but I think I may just start off gently and only do half my normal session, I think I may just kill myself if I try to do a full one

well I better go, even though I am completely worn out, I have to get dinner started before I go to college...think I may have to sit at the back of the class tonight and hope no one notices if I fall asleep

Hope you all had a good mothers day

I've struggled a bit today. I want to eat & eat & eat. Resisting so far ............... Although there is a glass of wine in the fridge with my name on it. Ray is working nights tonight, after not doing night shift since Sept. He works for an American company & they lost orders & cut the shifts back. But now they need the guys to work nightshift again. I am going to miss him, but don't tell him that. I won't sleep until the early hours, I never used to why so why should I be any different this time. Never mind if I don't sleep tonight then I'll be dog tired tomorrow night & have no problems dropping off.

Back at work tomorrow & I could see it far enough. Although to be honest once I get up & ready tomorrow I'll be fine - I hope.

Well Sarah I'm off to see if I can get that Pilates tape from EBay, think I'll offer another 50 or 60p. Beyond that the other fella can have it.

See you all in the morning , when I promise to have my motivated head back on

Carol

Forgot to mention my sister got engaged last November and has set a date (or a month as least) She has decided to get married in May 2003. What more motivation do I need to lose this weight as I do not want to be the 'blob' in her wedding photo's.

A wedding is a great incentive Carol cos those photos/videos are there to haunt us forever, just think of the outfit you will be able to wear!!

I have been swimming tonight and my back feels ok in fact I think it may have done me a lot of good.

I have had my next set of photos taken, there is a stones difference between them and you can certainly tell in places, at first I was a bit disappointed until we viewed them side by side, oh well the next stone should put a smile on my face!!

Hi all

Carol I'm like you my hubby works a lot of night shifts but he doesn't have a regular routine, so I seem to just get used to having him sleeping in bed with me again when he is off on a night shift and then i can't sleep because he isn't there...i think that is probably one of the reasons i don't seem to need much sleep any more, i think i have just gotten used to not having much
and yeah your right...what more of an incentive do you need than a wedding, not only look forward to being able to wear nice smaller clothes and not look like the blob in the photographs, but also just think about all those compliments you will get from people you haven't seen for a while

Congrats TQ on the new photographs...so when do we get to see them ?

Hi all

Just got back from spending the weekend at mum's, plus it was Mothering Sunday yesterday, so thought a visit was due (haven't seen her for about 3 weeks - but call daily).

Anyway she had a lovely day, especially because my brother who stormed out in a strop last year because he couldn't bully my mum into doing something (long story) turned up with his wife and the grandchildren. My mum was on cloud nine. Why is that when children have issues with the parents, they use the grandchildren as "pawns"?

Anyway he came round - didn't have the decency to apologise - but mum doesn't care (mum's are sooooo forgiving).

Had a hospital appointment today and guess what? Waited around for an hour then had it cancelled because no one has forwarded my notes. Now this appointment was a replacement for the one they cancelled last August - two days before I was due to attend due to my consultant going on holiday. When I called to chase up the appointment they had me down on the system as a DNA - did not arrive!!! Yeah - it takes me six months to get an appointment and I can't be bothered to turn up

Thanks BPB i am proud, but nowhere near as proud as i will be when i reach my final goal

When you look back at my starting photographs it isn't difficult to see why i didn't recognise myself in the wedding picture is it

Don't hospitals really P**** you off with all their messing around and when they make a mistake they always try to put the blame on you...typical!!!
