Weigh-In and Homecoming

Hey lovelies!!

I am very pleased to announce that I have now officially lost 80lbs - 81.5lbs, in fact!! I weighed in at my meeting with a loss of 2lbs, although I privately think that it should have been a bigger loss than that, my reasoning being that I usually weigh in my tracksuit bottoms because I go to the gym straight from my meeting. This week I was getting the train home straight after the meeting so I was wearing 'normal clothes' - ie denim shorts, which definitely weigh more than my joggers do! (Incidentally, anyone ever heard of jogging bottoms being referred to as "trackie-b's"?? My housemate is a bit obsessed with that term and for some reason I find it really amusing.) Also, the scales flickered between 13st 13.5lbs and 14st for quite a while, before finally settling on 14st, bummer! I would have loved to have been in the 13s this week! Still, a loss is a loss and there's always next week.

This is just a quick update from me as I have returned to the Wonderland that is Essex (which is to be pronounced as Essickss, or Essiiiix, at all times) and so I should really be socialising with the family. I'm here for three nights, the primary reason for the visit being the realease of Breaking Dawn part 1 - mum and I are massive Twihards, judge us if you will! It is so nice to be home in a nice clean house that isn't full of testosterone. Don't get me wrong, I love my boys, but they're loud and messy and just generally quite mannish and I don't think they really understand me most of the time. They're a bit like puppies really - ridiculously cute, but you can't really have a 'serious' conversation with them. Anyway, I sat in the kitchen and had a glass of wine and a lovely chat with Mumma Jones and then inhaled possibly the best meal of my life - beef goulash with braised red cabbage, followed by homemade apple pie and custard. My mother is the best. The goulash and cabbage was even quite Weight Watchers friendly!! (We won't talk about the pie.) This, plus the inescapable cinema treats tomorrow are going to make things a bit more tricky when it comes to weigh-in next week. I'm hoping that being uber good from Friday onwards and squeezing in a few gym sessions will negate whatever damage I manage to do within this 48 hour period. 

Also, I want to apologise for my last few posts being a bit 'wordy'. Hopefully there will be interesting things in my life for me to take photos of soon, and until then you'll just have to put up with my ramblings! You know you love it really!!

Te amo muito! (Thats Portuguese for 'love you lots' by the way - I am just so cultured!) Enjoy the rest of your week!!
