I haven't been arsed with the camera for a few days, but pulled the pics off it last night, and for the first time I looked at the picture. The difference in my face is amazing, people are loving it on facebook !  Here is the picture :-)

minus 7
Minus a stone

Minus 1.5 stones

minus 2 stones !
Well, on the WW site a member has put a before and after pic of her face, which has led me to go searching my PC for my diet pictures, it took a while, but here they are , starting at 17-6 and finishing at 15-6 !

It's All Coming Back To Me Now !

How I gained my 2lbs this week. One day last week, Angie brought the kids a tub of lollies home, and I had quite a few of them. Then - I went to the biscuit tin, and found it was full of cadburys chocolate bars ( small ones) so I had 3 of them over the evening . Then of course there was the take out, although all I had was a poppadum, a few small bhaji's and chicken tikka starter. Over the weekend i must of had 6 litres of Strongbow as well, so all in all, I got away lightly !

Still being good this week, but it's only day two lol .

Payback Time (Week Six )

And so to weigh in we trudged last night. On Thurs I treated all the family to a take out curry, as means of absolution to my digression ! ( That didn't really cut the mustard, it wasn't until late on Saturday I was finally forgiven. Anyway, on Sunday it was Bowling with my works social club, so we had a great time, and some more drink.
I weighed in last night, and I have put 2 pounds on. Angie has been as bad as me, maybe even worse,  and lost half a pound !

So - here I am , on a mission to get a loss for next week, so no prob with cider, as I am working until Saturday afternoon, but then we are off to a wedding reception, where I must pace myself. If I can hang on to my weekly allowance, that means I can have seven pints that night !

Well I am home, after a visit up to my brothers last night, had a right good piss up, and a take out, but all I ate was the chicken, so no great panic re weight loss. It's so funny being back in my homeland, it's only 7 miles away, but it's true to say, it's also a lifetime away. It is very strange to look around, where I have lived more than half my life, the memories, the joy , the pain, and my journey that has brought me to here, the happiest I have ever been. I am hungover, and feeling very philosophical at the moment, but hey, life is good, as soon as Angie forgives me for not coming home last night !

Morning ! (Week Five)

Well the alarm has just gone off, at 3.30 AM, and I must say , I'm tired !
I got a loss last night, one pound, si I have a do-able challenge to lose a half more for my first stone next week.  The only blot on the landscape is I am of to my brothers on Weds night for a beer and a curry, as I am off Thurs, but then it's work work work until the Weds after, so no beer this weekend !

Monday, 2 July 2012


Well I just weighed in, and lost one pound, which is all well and good, but that means I am just half a pound off my first stone of this campaign !  Still, it gives me motivation to get into the fourteens next week !
I haven't been for a run for over a week, the weather has been appalling, and continues to be so.
