Weigh In #5

I felt bad for my poor Hubby today. He got on the Wii Fit to get weighed this morning, it said he had lost 2 lb but his chart only dropped 1 lb. He weighed himself twice and it did the same. We think it's something to do with the Wii Fit not operating in fractions of pounds. Regardless, his chart says 18 stone so that's how he wants it recording. I suspect it will be well under 18 stone on his next weigh.

I weighed in with a 3lb loss making me 12 stone 12 pounds. The first time I have been under 13 stone in ages! I'm thrilled, delighted, ecstatic! But couldn't go too mad because Hubby was still upset about his confusing result.

I have now lost more than half of my original loss target. 38lb gone, 35lb to go! I'm not planning any more 9 month breaks to have another baby so hopefully this 2nd half will shift a little quicker, heehee.

We have something of a challenge ahead of us this week. Friday is Hubby's birthday!!! So we are celebrating with the usual takeaway tea and cake! And that means some serious sensible eating the other 6 days of the week. 

Weigh In:

  • Me: - 3lb
  • Hubby: -1lb
  • My total loss since Nov 2013:  38lb
  • More than half my target weight lost since November!!!!

Things I have learned this week:

  • Walking to town is good, blowing ALL my active points on Costa Coffee is bad
  • The less sweets and chocolates I eat the tastier fruit becomes - really!
  • Feeling tight jeans starting to get loose feels good :)

Targets for this week:

  • Be super strict with my points because it's Hubby's birthday on Friday
  • Find out what Indian Takeaway meal I can choose which isn't crazy for points
  • Walk to town at least twice, only have Costa once

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
