11 Stone Again! YAY!!!

WOW! I've made it back too 11 stone! SOOOOO Impressed with me! It's taken a while to shift that 8lb I gained over Christmas, but not as long as it could have taken.

I know I'm VERY unlikely to get to my Valentines Challenge of 10 stone 6 by the end of the challenge as that would require an 8lb loss in 2 weeks - and lets face it, that would just not be healthy! But I'm happy with what I have managed.

AND I have prooved to myself that I can do the diet with out going to the meetings - which I still feel bad about. But like I said, the eSource keeps me keeping track of everything, and Weight Watchers Challengers gives me all the support and motivation I need to carry on so it looks like I am going to be fine after all.

I only have a stone to loose before I get to my goal weight now! I know the last stone is the hardest to shift, but if I keep to my points, keep to my work-out plan, and stick to the water drinking I'm sure I'll get there.

In theory next week I will be under 11 stone which means I'll have fewer points per day, which is a worry, but I'm sure I'll get used to it within a couple of days. After all, what's a point or two here and there? All I have to do is have slightly less - or different - fruit with my breakfast, or skip the roll with my lunch time soup or switch it for something else like a slice of bread which is less points.

Yesterday I still had 8.5 points left at the end of the day and it was a strugle to eat them. I only HAD to eat 4.5, so I got a small bowl of dates, but I could quite happily have not eaten them because I was still full after my tea - which had only been 5 points! Imagin that - being full of a 5 point meal when I used to have meals upwards of 15 or even 20 and still want to nibble afterwards!

I'm very impressed with myself today. Can you tell? Hee hee hee!

Good on ya lass! I've been unofficially doing the WW thing since January and am down a total of 14 lbs so far. It's pretty easy if you do it for your own reasons and not because someone made you do it. Even if it takes a bit longer you will get there.

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
