OK I go away for a week and when I manage to log in I expected to spend ages catching up - obviously Sarah must be the chatty one - hurry up and fix Doris we need you.

Where have I been - no where exicting, work, home, work, home again. I am very busy at the moment at work and have been determined not to work in the evening this week - hence the fact I haven't been putting the computer on in the evenings. This week I will put it on but only to chat to all of you - can't abondon you or myself for another week.

Eating is a nightmare - I've not been counting or even kidding on that I'm watching what I eat. Am too scared to go on the scales would not be at all surprised to see the scales back at 16 stone. These things have to be faced though. It's my birthday during the week and this time last year I was determined I wouldn't be this big on my birthday, but guess what I am. Only I can do anything about it, so why the pity party ?? I have to go shopping today and will buy some healthy stuff to get me back into it.

Exercise has been non existent too. I have managed a couple of ewalks at lunchtime but nothing serious. I need to have a serious word with myself.

I have a gray skirt I wear to work. It started of as a size 24 and if I'm honest was always large on me, well I took it in a year ago and cut of the 'extra' material so I could never loosen it again. Well now it does fit any more - I can wear it but I end up with big red marks around my tummy after an hour or so. And it is pure heaven when I get in the car to go home to undo the button. Sad thing is with the zip half way down and the button undone I can walk from the car to the house without the skirt falling off. My other skirt is elasticated but it isn't much better.

TQ I would love to join a gym, but we are just about surviving on the money we make, there are no extras at the moment. Will just need to stick to working out on my own. Can't even stretch to my weekly swim. Ray is still working at the job he hates but searching for another - please let him find one soon. I used to belong to a gym and went 4 or 5 times a week - it was pre kids when my weight was a steady 10 stone 7lbs. I would kill to get back there.

Veggie - I'm glad you're enjoying the job. What kind of call centre is it ? There is a Thomas Cook one near where I live and they are always having 'fun' days and things. Once they had the velco wall and another time people were on elastic and had to move balls about - team building appartently. They can also pick up the holiday bargains that are unsold - a could of friends jet off a couple of times a year with her discounts.

Melissa - we've both fell of the wagon. I need to find all my motivation and start again

Kim - your defainatly motivated. 5 days on plan. I would be on top of the world for that.

Pheobe - rain - Urg!!! but at least you're walking.

Hello to anyone I missed. Well I'm off for a trawl around the posts - I will speak to you all later. I need you all pull me back onto the right road.

Now from me that fear would be oh so real but you'll fit into it I'm sure!

I have a very big fear of uniforms not fitting thats why I never apply for shop jobs/hotel/travel agents etc sad isn't it?

you hit it on the button there we probably have more to offer than these skinnies but employers go for what is asthetically pleasing
