Total Weight Lost 1 stone 1 lb
Whoop whoop, New batteries in the scales and I've now lost over the stone. It is definitely a dance around the bathroom moment. I text my son and daughter as they are really supportive and have shown a real interest in how I am doing. I seem to be losing a steady 2-3 lbs a week but strangely I seem to plateau out and then drop the weight all at once. If it is going down then I am not complaining. Another 2lbs and I would have lost 10% of my starting weight.
I go to a friends straight from work as my son want to have friends around. I think the football is on. When I get home I am still excited by my weight loss and open up the boxes that I've put aside with the clothes that were slightly uncomfortable to wear. I usually say if I can't fit into them in six months I will take them to charity but I can never bring myself to part with them and the boxes just become dust collectors. But now it is different. I try them on and they fit, look nice and I'm overly excited. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a clothes-a-holic and I start putting aside some dresses for holiday and those I don't want to take I put in piles to lend to some friends. I even start a pile to take to charity !!
At about 1.30am I disturb my son who thinks the house is being burgled.
Son - "Mum, what are you doing ?"
Me - "Packing for holiday"
Son - "When are you going ?"
Me - "In two weeks"
Son - "GET TO BED MUM!!"
Don't you just hate it when your kids are more sensible then you are ?
