Getting there!

My proper day of weighing is Fridays but I do weigh myself on Wednesdays as well. I am 2lbs lighter today and that's my first half a stone. So very happy! Normally I would celebrate a happy occasion with cake and chocolates etc. but today I'm going to buy a plant for the garden as a reward. I'll then mow the lawns and do some gardening so that will be 2 hours of exercise at least. My "reward" will then be planted and I'll be able to look at it everyday to remind me that I can lose my weight after all. :)
