A goal met
Friday, August 21, 2020      5 comments

On my board one of my goals was to reach 167 pounds and today, 21st August 2020, I finally reached it. Today I was 166 pounds. I am very proud of reaching this weight for the first time in over thirty years. So many things have happened to me in... Read more
Another week goes past.

No weight change this week but it was that curious thing with mechanical scales where the needle is fractionally on the positive ( that means lower) side. Not a measurable amount, just enough to make me feel not too bad. This time around I am no... Read more
Stay with it

Well this week didn't see any change. I was hoping for a slight improvement but at least it is static. This next week will be interesting after my weekend splurge. Having family visiting is lovely but we do rather push the boat. I didn't do my c... Read more

No weight change this week. Have had a busy week and despite having some meals organised it was difficult to stick to them. On the other hand I got a lot of things done that were necessary. My average calorie intake was about 100 calories higher... Read more

Trying harder to keep my calorie count at the lower end of my allowance and it seems to be helping. The pound I lost with toothache more or less crept back on again but this week it is away again. Also noticed definite improvement in muscle tone... Read more
Follow up to last week

Seems that downward movement was down to not eating. There's a clue if ever there was one. I must check what the calorie intake difference was and take more notice of fluids too. I've been busy outside all week as it has been pleasantly warm so ... Read more

First time in ages I have written a blog. My weight has plateaued for months now. Seems I was comfortable with the diet I had for the time being. However, having an abscess beneath a crown earlier this week appears to have curtailed my appetite ... Read more
August again

Time seems to pass more and more quickly as I age. However, my weight does not come off with the same rapidity. On the other hand it is coming off, albeit slowly. Doing tracking is really helping though, as I can look back and see how far I have... Read more
Losing inches.
Tuesday, June 13, 2017      4 comments

I thought is was about time I did another blog. I honestly haven't lost an awful lot of weight since the last blog but I have lost some, so some is better than none. However, because I have been exercising more I have lost some inches all over. ... Read more
Time to have an over-view.

On Friday my daughter would have been 38. That combined with the passing of an old friend on Monday has made me feel very low this week so I have decided to look back at my achievement on Sparks to lift my spirits. I gave myself the goal o... Read more
Another month down the line.

I still haven't made a great deal of inroad in my weight loss but I have lost some inches so...... not entirely a loss. I've been trying to eat a lot more fibre, and I always thought I ate a lot of it, but it seems the fruit and veg I usually ea... Read more
A month in since my last update.

I feel like I was back at school and my teacher has written 'must try harder'. I must try harder to stop thinking I am on a diet. Whenever I start to think that way I stop losing weight so I'm now going from another direction, which has worked f... Read more

I haven't blogged for ages so I'm doing an update today. I have definitely reached a plateau in my weight loss journey. I've stopped off at the services, so to speak, lol. Maybe I need this time to consolidate my mental approach. A sort of sit b... Read more
New Year Update
Sunday, January 18, 2015      0 comments

I decided to update my page today. I've been back on track now for two years. My progress has been very slow but I don't care. It has taken years to go on so if it takes years to come off then maybe this time it will stay off! I have now lo... Read more
Another little drop.
