No longer AWOL

A photo posted by Charlie Walker (@mummawalker) on

It has been FAR TOO LONG since I last posted on here. You must all think that I have jacked this diet in and gone back to stuffing my face with cream cakes from a pigs trough.

That's actually NOT the case! Looky see.... I was super proud to look my slimmest ever at my sister-in-laws wedding and lovely new Lindy Bop dress!

But.... I have been suffering with an unseasonal bout of depression (truth is I still am), but I am getting help and slowly returning to blogging.

There is good news and bad news regarding my diet. The first bit of good news is that I had got down to 152 1lb before the school summer holidays -  That's under 11 stone - the lightest I have ever been in my whole adult life, lighter than I was at my wedding. And I was thrilled to bits with myself. The bad news is that during the six week summer holidays I "took a break" from my diet so as not to be a misery guts while out and about with my kids and gained 19 lb!!!!

But the kids are back at school now - have been all week - and I am back on my diet. I have already dropped 5 lb and am 166 lb as of this morning. I still have a stone to lose before I am back to where I was before the summer but I am not going to let that ruin me. I've done it before, I can do it again!

I am back in my size 14 jeans, which is a daily reminder that I let things go just a little too much. I am looking forward to my 12s being comfortable again (they go on ok, but are too snug to wear all day).

SO! Here is the NEW plan of action:

  • First target - shift this newly acquired stone in weight.
  • Reassess my end target weight once I get under 11 stone.
  • Keep reminding myself how much I am LOVING my new wardrobe and how much I want to keep wearing my pretty new things 
  • Get through this spell of depression without leaning on food for comfort (this is the toughest part)
I am back!

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
