Hangover Cures!

I need some! I have a hangover after going to Helen's BBQ Hen Night last night. So much for not drinking! Had rather a few vodkas, with Diet lemonade - nice and low points. I only had 2 chicken legs and 2 mini sausage rolls to eat as well, so didnt do too badly! Lots of walking this week (if the rain pigs off!) to rectify the damage.

Anyway, as I said I need some low fat hangover cures! Obviously the "usual suspects" that used to work are out - ie McDonalds with a Extra Large full fat coke! Followed by at least 2 litres of coke! Or the other option is a big fat fully fried fry up! Golden syrup porridge oats just dont cut the mustard with hangovers!!

Only 13 more sleeps til THE WEDDING!! Yay, cant wait to show off my new figure in my lovely bridesmaid dress!!

I Did It!!

I lost 3lbs this week, taking my total weight loss to a not inconsiderable 100lbs!! Yes, thats one hundred whole pounds!! Im dead chuffed, although i didnt burst into tears like i thought I would!!

This week has been a good week. I did a fair amount of walking on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Tuesday i did loads as I went on a school trip with my sons class, walked there and back (approx 5 miles) plus stood up all day apart from 20 minutes while eating lunch. I certainly wouldnt have been able to do that before I lost weight, even the standing for a few hours would have worn me out, without the 5 mile walk!

I also stayed within my points (and still havent got round to putting a couple of days worth of trachers on here, i promise i will!)

Weight Gain!!

I put a lb on this week!! Im totally not surprised though, I was expecting to after a shock 3.5lbs loss last week! In the big picture though i've still lost 97lbs so these little blips dont matter! Im sticking to the plan and i know that pound will be gone again next week!

I took an old pair of jeans into work today. People were shocked at the size of them (size26/28) and really dont believe that I used to wear them! But i did - and they were getting tight too! Anyway first of all I put them on to show everyone.

Then 2 of the girls, Nicola and Sarah decided to see if they could get in them - and they could - TOGETHER!! Was soooo funny. Another colleague commented that that means i have lost a Nicola!! Which i suppose is almost right in a way!

Climb Every Mountain.. my case, Mt Ironing Pile! I managed to reach the summit today! As i stood there ironing, non stop for 3 hours, i thought back to before I began my weight loss journey. When I had to sit down to iron, with every door and window in the house open to get enough cool air into the room, to try to combat the profuse sweating that would start after 10 minutes or so. I had to have a break every 20 minutes to regain control of my breathing and wipe sweat off my forehead and out of my eyes. It then took me a good hour or so to put everyones clothes away, as I would have to have a 5 minute sit down after each persons clothes. This was without having to climb stairs as I would already be upstairs ironing. And I would have rounded it off by going to bed and sleeping for the rest of the afternoon.

Im glad to say that times have changed. Today I had music blaring while ironing and still had energy after 3 hours to be dancing to the music. I now iron downstairs and have to make at least 6 journeys up and down stairs to take it all up, I didnt need a sit down even after all that!

Weigh In

Went to weigh in, lost 3.5lbs this week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Means I got silver 7 number 14, 7 stone gone and only 2lbs to go to the big 100!!!

I havent done anything different so im not sure why i;ve had such a big loss this week (but im not complaining!!) Fingers crossed it stays off and i dont see a gain next week, as has happened before when i've had a big loss I wasn't expecting!

It was my intention this week to post a couple of days worth of trackers as some people have asked what I eat. As for exercise I really dont seem to be getting around to doing much, although I am walking as much as I can fit in.

4 weeks today until the wedding, but i've taken my dress to have a corset fitted, just in case i dont get in it!!! I only had about an inch to go but its just not worth leaving it any longer. At least now i know it'll fit, and the corset will hold "the girls" in place!!!

Yay, lost another 2lbs this week! That could partly have something to do with me being ill part of the week I suppose! Its also TOTM though, so im really pleased with a 2lb loss! I have done lots more walking this week (apart from yeserday when i was in bed ALL day!) so that must have helped too.

Im well and truly in the 15s now, at 15st 10.5lbs. Im feeling really good about myself! I still cant take compliments though! I was told on Tuesday that im looking "too thin"! WHAT!! I felt like screaming, im still obese - how can i be too thin! People look at me like im daft when i say ive got over 4 stone to go! My clothes must be clever at hiding the "real me"!!

Bye Bye Plans!!

Well, my plans for this week are out the window! Waling walking and a bit more walking was the plan. I walked Saturday, walked a bit Sunday, walked some more Monday, today, halfway through my walk, ended up being struck down by the lurgy! Had a sore throat and headache when i woke this morning, now feel as though flu is kicking in big time :(

Ive had 9 points today and dont feel like any more!

I went today to meet up with some ladies from a pregnancy forum i joined when pregnant. We met up at Heaton Park and had a little picnic. I was having a good look round, as I have signed up to do a 10k Race For Life there in July. I think i'd better get some serious training in! Theres more hills than I remember!

Anyway, off to feel sorry for myself! Kieron isnt well at the moment so I have not a lot of chance of getting the rest I need! I think politicians would win many a vote if they brought in sick pay for mummies! Supplying an au pair would be good!
