Too long again

Hi All

Sorry for the long time between drinks. Phew, have been ridiculously busy of late. After we got back from our Christmas trip we were in the throes of finding a new house to live in and of course we then had to move, why does anyone move house? Moving house is terrible. Anyway, we found a lovely new place that is only minutes walking distance to my son's school, which is another thing that happened. That's right I am now the mumma of a school boy, yikes, how did that happen?? I was also my husband's, my mum's and my twins girls birthday's, so you can see why I've been MIA.

Weightloss has been up and down, mostly down. Apart from last week when I had a MASSIVE gain, like 2.8kg's massive. To say I was unhappy and disappointed would be an understatement. It was that special time in the month for me and 2 birthday's didn't help, but I'm happy to report that after yesterday's birthday I lost 1.3kg's (although this might bite me in the bum next week, but I'm trying not to let it). So I'm sitting at 98.7 right now, bummer because I was down to 97.2 which was awesome, but I will get there again hopefully next week.

So speaking of birthdays, it's hard isn't it? You don't want to be the odd one out, but you REALLY need to be, or show a little more self control. Yes I enjoyed the time with my family and enjoyed not really worrying about food, but I really should have been, there were foods I could eat, I made sure of that, but I indulged a little too much me thinks. What's wrong with feeling a little left out? There's nothing wrong with it, not when it comes to food and your weight, it's more important than that. The next birthday that we have to celebrate that we can actually attend is mine, hopefully I can still enjoy myself but not OVERindulge.


  1. Bathe some summer fruits in a little caster sugar, lots of passionfruit and a liberal dash of Grand Marnier (from one of those miniature bottles). Sure it's a little bit naughty, but not tooooo bad, feels like a treat and, because of the booze, can't be shared with the kids!

    I have EXACTLY the same problem as you've outlined above. Keep trying. I am...

  2. Although you had a gain you have still done wonderfully well. I really love and admire you for sticking to it!!

  3. WOW Bec! You've done an amazing job so far - don't worry about the little gains now and then. Just focus on the big picture! A loss of 26+ kg is a fantastic achievement. Be proud.
