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 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
