I'm here and in one piece and safe and sound. My head just isn't in the right place for losng weight at the moment and didn't want to be whingeing (sp?) constantly so I just stayed away.

Was up in Dornoch last week, just me and the boys, had a ball the weather wasn't gerat but we were on the beach every day, even got chatted up one evening, whilst the boys played on the rocks, was a nice experience

Am off to St Andrews on Sunday with the boys and my friend Linda and her kids - must be mad, will no doubt rain for the entire week, we are camping - so don't hang your washing out at all next week, Kirsty.

I can drive a manual and an automatic. Although my car is in the garage. It broke down in Dundee before I went on holiday and I had to get towed home (65 miles) just as well I have braek down insurance. Hired a car for my holiday and Ray was suppose to get my car fixed whilst I was away, but needless to say the car was still in the driveway going nowhere when I came home. is due to be fixed either tomorrow or Thursday, black marks for Ray though.

Have no idea what I am going to do about my weight, apart from knowing that I have to do something about it. I am getting heavier and heavier at least it feels that way, I haven't stood on the scales in weeks, am not brave enough. Part of me says I should just be happy with me the way I am, but the bottom line is I'm not so i need to get my butt in gear and do something about it.

Eating - has been bad
Drinking - has been too much of it
Exercise - has been non existent

Am going to bore for Scotland next week. Poor Linda will be sick of hearing me talking through all my options on what I am going to do about my weight next week. There is a WW class on a Monday night, 5 minutes from my house. Slimming world is on the Wednesday night also 5 minutes away. And there are other clubs and options.

What I really want is a fairy godmother who will help me wish away all these excess pounds.

Promise to stay in touch and keep you up to date with my decison and I won't whinge too much - honest.

Carol

Just wanted your opinion on these clothes. I have a wedding to go to next month and have to really impress as it is an ex-boyfriend and his mum never liked me.

I have to say that I originally fell in love with the red and white dress (some of you may remember). I then tried on the black dres and liked that even more. I think the red top looks best on me. I would wear it with black trousers but not sure if it is a bit tarty for this particular occasion.

Prices:

Red and White dress - 90
Black Dress - 80
Red Top - 40 (I already own a whole wardrobe full of black trousers - )

They are all by Debut at Debenhams.

Any ideas on which is nicest?

Really need your help on this one . The great news is that I can fit into a size 12 of all of them (very generous cut would really recommend this range for a confidence boost).

Size 12? Omg I did like the red sex and the city dress but I'd say go with the tarty look who cares what the Mother says everyone else will be too busy drooling.

Go for the red top with the black pants, you'll look amazing, and well done being in a 12
Wear a red hat too........you know what they say about people who wear red hats, that'll make his Mother wonder....

Carol, welcome back luvey, whinge anytime you want. I miss your little atedones about life in general and besides, if you can't whinge to us, who can you whinge to? I'm not exactly on plan either, managing to maintain though, by some stroke of luck. I think it's cos I know I'm coming home and will be eating...and I know fish & chips aren't fat free.....shame about that, but I'm eating them anyway

Rough storms out here last night and more forecast for today, even had a tornado touch down 20 miles away yesterday....scary!

Oooooo, need to go step on Gloria and see what she says to me this morning...will let you know in a bit.

Thanks ladies. Intrigued to know what they say about people in hats now though - lol.

Have spent the last couple of days at Child Protection training which was quite emotional at times due the nature of the topic. A lot of discussion on child abuse. Fantastic course though delivered by two fantastic and experienced trainers.

Am off to the cinema to unwind tonight. Stayed the same this week at SW and have been a little naughty the last couple of days - am determined to get back on track now though.

Yeh, What DO they say about people who wear hats

Super, I like the Red Top best Black Dress second and Red/White Dress third you'd be able to go "clubbing" in the red top too, (yeh, what clubbing? she sez )

Welcome back Carol don't worry about whingeing we don't mind listening at all and as for weightloss i'm just maintaining too and not really trying/bothered either but i'm here to support the other more committed members until i'm ready to 'go for it' again and I don't think it will be anytime soon cuz hubby's brother and family come over on 12th August and i'm gonna enjoy myself travelling around the island and eating out

Am still without my car, funny how you get so dependent on it. Took me just under 2 hours to make a short journey on public transport, by car it would have taken around 40 minutes and wouldn't have cost me over 11.

Made a chicken curry for dinner tonight, made far too much of it, but it was healthy and low fat even if the quantity ruin everything and I had it with vegetables and pasta. Might just balance out the McDonalds I had at lunchtime - not

Am trying to get organised for going camping on Sunday is a lot of work, we need to pack clothes for all eventuallties, sunshine, rain, cold, winds, etc. Think I can safely so we won't have any snow - hope I don't regret saying that.

see yer

RED hats girls........you've never heard what they (who, I don't know actually) say about women who wear red hats???? It can't be too old of a saying, I'm not that bloody old! Although I did feel it after clubbing myself on Saturday night, or should I say 'out' clubbing as now you are all thinking that I beat myself on the head with a club or something, and stand on a cat called Gloria....
'THEY' say, RED HAT....NO DRAWERS!!!!! Very tarty indeed!
Mmmmmmmmmm Kirsty, Bon jovi, you're my kind of rock and roller, I ADORE Jon Bon Jovi. Have for years and years. I drool when I see him on telly...he's so wonderful. He doesn't actually live very far from me in NJ either.....have never bumped into him though He makes me weak at the knees and I've never even managed to see them in concert either as they've all been sold out or we move when they're coming to town!
Carol, have fun camping luv, you're a better woman than I am. Sleeping on the couch is my idea of camping! I'm a big pansy.
My Mum has just informed me that her cupboard is stocked full of bottles of wine, so I reckon I'll be getting tiddled a few nights when I'm home, three weeks and I'll be there today
Going now..........to make a cuppa.
