Am having an eating day, not good for me - but I'm sure I am beg enough (literally) to cope with it

Had the afternoon off work to go to a cultural afternoon at school, a burns poetry afternoon none the less. Steven won the prize for his age in the burns comptetion at reciting a poem, my wee red caur. Went along and listened and feel all cultured and at peace with the world at the moment.

Work sucks, but everything else is good.

Still no snow here !!

We have snow in Suffolk. Lots of it bringing chaos to normal life and weekend plans.I am sorry but I have been looking forward to this weekend for weeks, as my friends and I have booked to have a photo-portrait done for my Christmas present.This has now been cancelled for now 'cos of the adverse weather conditions making travel difficult.I am not amused. Actually I am b*[email protected]*y cross.And I have sat at home all day (I know I couldn't have gone far but I needed a sleep and a relax session) waiting for a courier to deliver a new mobile phone...now they cannot come till Tuesday so there is another day wasted.I mean, why Tuesday?? What happened to Saturday and Monday???!!! And as for losing weight...

Oh well...bye for now, keep warm everyone...

Hello from a sunny Scotland with no snow. All the news last night was about the snow, they spent most of the programme discussing the lack of gritters on the M11. Is that all that happened in the world yesterday, sure something more important was going on somewhere. It was funny the first time I heard it, but by 10 o'clock I'd had enough. There are loads of gritters up here, loads and loads of them.

Am having a get back to serious day, need to have been seriously off plan for the last 2 days and need to do some damage limitation. Ray is working nights on some emergency job so still no night out, think we may manage to get a night out before summer, but hey you never know.

I am going to make the 0 points chinese soup that was on the WW card this week and I think there is some sugar free jelly in the cupboard, so there are 2 no nonsense filler uppers. May even have a look through my veg and see if I have enough to russle up a veg chilli or something equally low points.

May be going out with some friends and their kids tonight. But it will be a take the car shot so no booze, had too much wine last night. Enough to keep me going for a wee while any way.

So today is get serious day and a 'get back to it' day for me. Am determind to get my ar$e in gear again and get this weight off. The way I felt yesterday it would have been too easy just to slip in to the old eating and stop trying althogether - THAT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. I am in control

Enough !!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's February (already) and I am quite pleased with myself as I have lost 8lbs in January - just need to keep the momentum going during February and I'll be well on my weigh (ha ha) to the re-styled me.

We are going to do this, snow or no snow. Here's to a healthy February ladies.

Goodness, I can talk for Scotland once I get on my high horse !!!!!! Sorry for blethering on. No sensible adult here to talk to you see.

Is very quiet in here today, you must be all having better fun than I am.

Have done nothing exciting, took the boys for a haircut, involved an hour wait at the barbers, really exciting.

Then came home and gave the boys a cooking lesson - we were really originally and did boiling an egg. But it was fun to see their faces as the water heated up and started to boil and all the questions that raised and then the squeals of delight as the sand dripped through the egg timer. Made me stop and smile. We're going to try beans on toast next time, they already make excellent toast.

We were supposed to be making a cake this afternoon, was going to be banana and chocolate cake, but a couple of their friends have dropped in and the plan has been delayed. Will keep us out of mischief this evening - is a WW cake, 3 points per slice, so I'll be able to have a piece.

Really need to go tidy up a bit, Ray has just got up before his night shift, so I want to run up the Co op and get in a few things to make the chinese 0 point soup. Turning into a culinery day

Suffolk has snow....lots and lots of it!!!!!I would love to see it gone....would you like me to bucket some up for you in Scotland, Smiling?

Actually it has been a pain in the neck, bringing the whole of the U.K. to a sliding standstill because of a few inches of the stuff
Well done to everyone keeping on one plan or another.....I'm afraid I keep losing important bits of it somewhere....like a large piece of motivation and a wedge of cheese.....NO I MEAN WILL-POWER!.oooooohh dearrrrr
Anyway, going to bed now, keep warm everybody and no untimely visits to A & E departments 'cos of accidents in the snow and ice....
bye bye

We have snow it is offical . There is a little dusting a bit like icing sugar over the gardens, the road are still clear. Would love to wake up tomorrow morning to loads of it and be forced to stay at home and 'play out' in it all day. But it will probably all melt or even worse freeze and turn into even more of a death trap.

Think I just live in the wrong bit of Scotland, Edinburgh is less than 30 miles away, and they are getting loads and all the traffic hassles it brings with it - stay safe every one

Have been so off plan this week, will not get away with it this week. Maybe the weather will turn so bad that I can't get to WW tomorrow night - wishful thinking. Need to go to the early class as well, over 100 people at it - will not be fun waiting to get weighed with that many people.

Have made a committment to myself that what ever I gain this week I lose next week. Just hope it isn't too much

I am grateful that we haven't had snow over the weekend or Shell and I would never have managed to meet Ali today

We had a very nice few hours together and Shell and I both felt very inspired by meeting someone who has achieved such a fantastic weightloss. Meeting Ali has made me feel that losing my excess weight is possible - its not an impossible dream, I have now met someone who has really done it

I still can't imagine being slim - its a very long way away - but Ali is walking proof that it is possible.

Diet is still going well. I was supposed to have a high point day yesterday but despite going out for most of the day and then having a chinese (chicken chow-mein), I still went to bed with 10 points left over. Today I've gone about 2 points over so still have 8 in the "bank".

Anyway, thank you Ali for taking the time to meet two of your biggest fans!

HI everyone

Helen I really enjoyed meeting you and shell I just wish we could have spent more time together, the three hours seemed to fly past so quickly...I was really annoyed with myself after I left you both because I had brought my camera with me to get some photographs of us together and I completely forgot until I was on my way home
But I am pleased that you are really inspired now, it really isn't an impossible dream and I know you can do it. And as I said yesterday, if you need any help , you have my email address, and phone number. email, phone or text me any time you want to, even if you just fancy a chat. the same goes for Shell too. Actually the same goes for anyone if you feel a chat would be better than an email send me a pm and I will give you my phone number

I have had my third full night on uninterrupted sleep and it has been bliss. I really didn't want to get out of bed this morning when the alarm went off, it was just so comfortable. When I did get up and looked outside it was covered with snow. Mark had already told me last night he wanted the car today so he would get up early and take me into work, which I am grateful for...I hate driving in the snow.

The weekend has been pretty good....I went to the superstore on my way home on friday and nipped into the clothes section to have a peek at the bargain rail and found a pair of black leather trousers in a size 14, they looked a small fit, but they were only 4.99 so I bought them, when I got them home I tried them on and they fit comfortably, I obviously still can't tell just by looking at things if they will fit or not. When mark got home from work, he came up stairs to see the new bed, when he saw me in the leather trousers, he grinned, and threw me on the bed and pretended to start pulling them off, but I had my boots on and the heel of the left one went straight through the trousers and put a big rip half way up the leg.
He felt terrible and insisted on going straight back to the store to see if they had any more.I didn't hold out much hope because they were on the bargain rail and that means they are usually old stock they are just getting rid of, but we went anyway. We searched the rails and finally found another pair and beleive it or not they were also a size 14, I must have been fated to have those trousers. He bought me 2 new tops to go with them too because he felt so bad...I should let him ruin my clothes more often

Weigh in wasn't good...I gained 3lbs, but I am not as upset about it as I thought I would be, at least it wasn't 9lbs like last month and 3lbs should be easier to get rid of. I think part of why I wasn't so upset was because I was on a high with getting the leather trousers and also because of meeting up with Helen and Shell. That was really nice I spent about 3 hours with them and they are 2 lovely ladies and theymade me feel really special.

Thanks Girls

Ali

We have a had a bit more snow, not enough even for a real snowball fight, but now the temperture has dropped and the whole lot has turned into one big ice rink - not fun to drive on.

Work was busy and stressful as usual, but I am past caring about it, just leave it all behind when I leave.

I am jealous of your good nights sleep Ali, I was awake most of the night and am paying for it this evening

We have a big problem at home, we have lost the hamster, yes it was careless of us. We got up on Sunday morning to find the cage lying wide open and Thumper was gone. Me and Ray have searched everywhere, but haven't found him yet, if he isn't tucked away some snuggly in the house, don't think he will survive the freezing temperture tonight. Ray has even looked under the floor incase he made himself a wee nest down there. Am dreading having to tell the kids, will need to do it tomorrow if he doesn't appear tonight, he must be getting hungry by now!!!!

Feeling very motivated again, amazing what going to class can do for you. Just went and got weighed tonight, am going to the earlier class and have arranged to meet some people there at 7 next week, instead of going at 6:30 and sitting for 30 minutes to wait and get weighed and then not even bothering to stay for the talk. So next week, new plan. I am in control.
