Woops! I did it again!

So I made the "mistake" of jumping on the scales this morning. Only because my size 12 jeans felt a little too snugg on Friday. And I am just under 12 stone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In my deffence... my period (which I am still not used to having again AND which is almost a week EARLY) started this morning so I will be bloated and slighlty heavier for that (but lets face it, only by a couple of pounds) and there is the whole munching thing going on in this house as a direct result of the smoking ban.

I decided to get back onto the weight watchers web site for the first time in 3 months. And in those 3 months since I last logged on I have gained a whole stone! I have gone from 10 stone 12 to 11 stone 12... and half of that in the last three weeks!

It's freaked me out a lot! Appart from the fact that I really don't want to undo all the hard work I put into loosing weight in the first place, I have to be able to fit into my wedding dress by the end of Jan (for the proper fitting in the actual dress) and I am going to Maid of Honour at Jacquie's wedding in 2 months!!!!!!!

But in thoery I could loose a stone again by the time Jacquie gets wed if I really really stick to the diet. And I'm going to have to! I can't let the girl down! And I can't let ME own either! So I'm counting points again (20 a day at the moment, 3.5 gone on breakfast so far) and I'm going to have to get some use out of that bike other than "clothes horse". Typical that as soon as I need to get out and get some walking done the summer turns to winter and it starts chucking it down! Maybe I should take up swimming again!

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola

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
