I couldn't believe it. We had a brilliant time in Gran Canaria, eating and drinking too much admittedly. Then I went back to work on Monday. Halfway through the morning I was feeling lousy, followed by 2 bouts of throwing up, before managing to ... Read more

Well, it's been 12 weeks and now it's 14 pounds gone. I won't say I've been a saint (I haven't), I won't say I've exercised religiously (no, not that either); I also won't say that I've given up everything (right again - that neither)... W... Read more

Well... it's been over a week and nothing doing weight-wise, actually about 2 weeks. I have to be honest and say that TOM came and went with the usual ups, so the down DID follow too. Anyway, it feels as if nothing is happening. So-o-o-o-o.... Read more

I commented on a blog earlier, so I thought I would repeat my thoughts here, so as not to waste them lol... I cut things out that I'm not going to feel deprived of. I haven't used sugar in drinks in nearly 40 years. Do I miss it? No, I prefer ... Read more

I realised that I could do this, but never how much easier it is with decent support at home. I don't always have the energy for extra exercise after work, but do a lot of up and down stairs with piles of books at school. Also, being in the midd... Read more

Well, apart from that, I had a great surprise last night. Adrian phoned to update me about his jobhunting, which I wasn't expecting till the end of the week. I was leaving him to get on with it. I think he was maybe thinking that I would be upse... Read more

Had a hospital appointment today at 9am. I was told not to drive as it was for glaucoma tests, so I got a lift there (it's 5 miles). On the way back, it was pretty cold with a biting wind, as we had snow last night and it's an easterly wind blow... Read more
