Before I Make Any Grand Statements


Hello there!

I know, it’s been too long. Way too long. 

I’ve been wanting to come back here for awhile but I just wanted to make sure I was serious about getting back into the losing weight thing before I made any grand statements. And I am serious, 4 kilos of serious – that’s how much I’ve lost in the past three weeks. Not super fast, but nice and steady.

How about you? Are you still keen to do this? Do you want to join in again. Shall we make a commitment to give this thing a go until June? That’s what I was thinking. Ten kilos gone by June.

So, the fitbit is back out, I’ve just purchased a brand new water bottle that is MINE MINE MINE and not to be shared, I’ve started kickboxing and joined swimming classes. The weight is slowly coming off and although my jeans are still tight I can see little tiny changes here and there. Come and join me.

Let’s do this!




I dropped the second little traveller off at her party yesterday morning and was greeted by a really lovely mother holding a box of donuts. Has anyone else noticed that the minute you start watching what you eat you seem to be surrounded by feeders. How do you say no when someone has made a special trip? I stayed for a green tea, half a donut and a plate of fruit and then didn’t feel all that hungry until dinner time? I’m not half as hungry as I used to be now that I’ve started this 5:2 thing.

There were drinks last night with a group of women, nothing too huge but of course the minute I hit my second G & T I started admiring the bowl of chips in front of me. I stayed away from the sandwiches and stuck with the carrots, cucumber and tablespoon of hummus.

Today is fast day again and I can say hand on heart that I’m looking forward to it.

Steps: Better than yesterday but nowhere near where it needs to be.

Water: Good during the day, but not so good once the gin made an appearance.

Fat Face Moment: A handful of chips that were screaming out my name.

Skinny Face Moment: Cutting that donut in half and staying away from the naughty things on the table.

Online: There was no time for online yesterday and today is looking the same. Class parties, school assemblies and last minute goodbye stuff is the theme this week.

How are you going? How do you say no to feeders?
