The diet starts NOW

I have seen my sisters-in-law shed the pounds over recent weeks (I hope they don't mind me mentioning) as they are both going to Slimming World sessions. I'm feeling a little shamed by my expanding waistline particularly against theirs reducing....

So I am going back to Weight Watchers starting today. I have all the kit, I am signed up on the Internet site already (have been for ages) and I'm really going to try hard. I've don't it before, I can do it again.

We've all got a lot bigger in this house over the last year or two, and we can't blame it on having Jack any longer! Our 18 month son has a better view of food than us, taking fruit and veg over pizza and chocolate.... At least we have taught him well, even if it isn't by example!

There are better reasons than just seeing my sisters-in-law looking lovely and slim though. Winters on its way, and a healthier diet will help my depression. Being slimmer will improve our chances of having another baby, and we can't afford to buy a whole load of fat clothes when we have perfectly good medium and slim cloths clogging up our bedroom untouched!

SO! Here's ticker (coz I love em)

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
