Two posts in one day, aren't you lucky!! Or extremely unfortunate. Depending on how you look at it.

I've just popped on to update as I had an impromptu weigh-in this evening. I was flicking back through my old tracker and realised that I haven't tracked at all in over a week - I hadn't realised I'd been that bad. Knowing how easy it is for me to slip back into the dangerous world of 'just one more glass of wine', and after being told off by no less than three people for 'sabotaging myself', I decided I'd better nip it in the bud sharpish. So I went to weigh-in at the meeting in Chartham this evening thats run by my very first Leader Angela. It was lovely to see her and a few of the old faces from when I started last year, not least because of all the compliments! Last time they saw me I was almost 2st heavier than I am now, so they were all saying how much I'd lost and how good I looked. Love them! If I get anymore compliments this week I may not be able to get through a doorway without bruising my ego.

Anyway, back to the important news...


I know it doesn't sound like much but lets bear in mind that this is after ten days of not tracking. Ten days that included Two For Tuesday from Dominos, a kebab (lamb shish though, so its not like it counts...ahem), a chinese takeaway and a bottle of wine, a trip to McDonalds, a trip to the Harvester and five or six pints of Magners on Wednesday night. Oh and share-size bar of Dairy Milk. And a packet of chocolate Hobnobs. And doritos...I'm going to stop typing now. So, yes, all things considered I'd say losing 1lb is quite an achievement. It also means that I'm only 1.5lb shy of having lost 4st, which hopefully I can drop before I next weigh-in (officially) on Wednesday 25th May in Billericaaaay! Exciting stuff!!

I'm off to read me some Shakespeare now - love to you all!!
