Keep up with me!

I know I'm slack and haven't posted in a while!

To catch up:

  • We went to Morpeth (Maitland) last weekend for Mum's bday. Had lovely seafood lunch. Had respite too which was even better.
  • Had a bloke I know die from cancer a week or so ago. 43 is too young to die and leave a wife and 3 kids.
  • Now a teacher I've known for years has died from cancer as well so am going to his funeral tomorrow.
  • I've been back to the Orthopaedic surgeon about my knee (which has been extremely sore and is the reason I'm not exercising) - he gave me the bad news that my knee is "stuffed". I'm up for a knee replacement within the next 10 years depending on how long I can last....not great news. Bring on summer so I can get back in that pool.
  • On a lighter note I'm madly preparing for the markets where I'm going to be selling my Poppy Seed Salad dressing and Peanut Butter Balls (which are not for bandits!). That will be fun...they are very popular with my workmates and John's workmates so we'll see how it goes.
  • On the weight loss side of things I'm getting lots of positive comments but the scales are not reflecting anything exciting! I'll take a photo this weekend so you can have a look for yourselves.
Good luck with your weight in today Tina - can't wait to see if you hit the 99.9kg! I'm so jealous but all in good time.

Thanks Sue for the lovely comments! and Diz you are a positive influence as usual.

More progress

I feel great today. Great because I bought new clothes and I bought my first "M" in years! No more XXL's for me! I also bought 2 new tops in size 20 and could have gone 18 but they didn't have any...I was so proud.

I've taken measurements - not that there is a big difference since last time which is surprising.

Boobs: 122cm = -19cm
Waist: 110cm = -22cm
Stomach 134cm = -17cm
Legs Upper = -10cm
Legs Lower = -7cm
Neck = -5cm
Arms = -4cm
Total loss to date: 84cm.

I wish I had have measured my fingers before banding as my rings are far too big and I also wish I'd measured my bum cos it's disappearing too!
Will weigh in on Monday - haven't weighed in lately as the battery went flat on my scales which is probably a good thing!

I forgot to mention I flew to Sydney for work last week (Myf you will love this one) - I didn't need to ask for a seatbelt extension and I had to actually pull it tighter to make it fit!!! You should have seen the look on my face - I was just daring that skinny little hostess to ask me if I needed one!

I had a very relaxing weekend scrapbooking with 12 other keen scrapbookers! We arrived Friday afternoon and left Sunday afternoon..........I did 27 pages - more than I usually do in a year!

I was, however, rather shocked to discover that where we were staying had a no alcohol policy but after the last few weeks I needed the dry out! Anyhow the food was great as was the company. I was in bed by 8pm last night - hard work all this sitting around. I must say John was happy to see me when I got home and so did the kids - I'm thinking they drove him nuts!

Will update the weight and the measurements this week sometime.

I'm off on another weekend away tomorrow..........will up date you then.
