I've changed my target weight!

My aim was to lose a nice round number: 75lb. That puts me at just over 10 stone, remember my starting weight before I fell pregnant was 15 stone 8lb. Since I have been doing well most of the time - and know exactly why I haven't done so well on the bad weeks - I thought "why not aim for a nice round number to finish on?" After all 10 stone 2 or 3 lb seems like an odd target, yes? 10 stone has a good feel to it. It will be a loss of 78lb in total and give me a BMI of 24, which is still the top end of "healthy" so I know I'm not over doing my weight loss - it also means I have the option to carry on going if I want to (9 st puts me in the middle of my healthy BMI range, but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it).

I'm back on a positive after a rubbish January - mood wise, not diet wise, I think I did OK all things considered, I have just 1lb to lose to reach my Valentines Challenge and unless things go horribly horribly wrong over the next few days (can't see why they would) I should have that nailed on Sunday - a whole week early!  I am already planning my next challenge - a harder one at 2lb per week!

I have been looking over old blog posts on my main blog and found an entry from Dec 2005, the Christmas before I got married. I was trying to slim for the wedding and had dropped to 11 stone! The lightest I can ever recall being as an adult. It didn't last and I gained half a stone by the wedding.

I am 11 stone 5 lb at the moment. I feel so close to that 11 stone milestone that I can almost touch it! I am already lighter than I was on my wedding day... That feels amazing! When I get under 11 stone (and I WILL) I will be lighter than I have ever been as long as my Hubby has known me. That feels pretty awesome too!

I don't ever want to get over 11 stone again!

So here is my motivation for February: 

  • Nail that challenge a week early! 
  • Get a good start on the next challenge - 2lb a week please! (More walking!)
  • How awesome would it be to be at my lightest adult weight by the end of the month???
You know, even with my new extended goal, of I lose 2lb a week every week I will reach 10st before going back to work in May! I would LOVE that! No one would recognise me :D

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 one of thos…

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

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
