Weigh in #30

It's been a pretty crappy year so far. And because I always turn to food when things aren't good my weight loss has gone completely out of the window and I have crept up and up and up. Many of the new dresses I bought no longer fit, I'm back in 18 jeans, and while I am thankfully no where near my original weight I am much much heavier than I want to be.

I've had a few false starts this year, but the season has changed, the sun is trying to break through, and I think I am finally ready to get this show back on the road!

Now for the painful bit.... weigh in.

I am 13st 5lb 2oz this morning (187lb 2 oz). That's almost as much as I was just after my youngest baby was born. It's a gain of over 2 stone 5 lb (33 lb!!!)

I had promised myself not to get over 11 stone. So there's a real kick in the teeth.

I have signed back up for Weight Watchers - not sure why I cancelled (put that down to a depression induced error!). I have contacted Fitbit about my Flex which packed in a month ago, and they are kindly sending me a replacement. Now I just need to get my head round this new Smart Point system and figure out a way to incorporate steps into my working week!

Lets start with some goals!


  • Lose some weight - any amount will do!
  • Get to grips with Weight Watchers Smart Points
  • Find the courage not to tuck into the kids snacks every time I feel emotional!




Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too.

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…
