First post for ages

Hi Everyone

I love reading all the posts but haven't posted anything myself for ages. To be honest I haven't had anything interesting to say but today just wanted to give myself a pat on the back. We went away for 5 days (it was my birthday on Tuesday), had a great time and although I sort of put my diet on hold I managed to come home the same weight as I left. This is massive for me as previously the diet would have gone out the window, never to return, but instead I got up this morning, back in the healthy eating mind set and overjoyed that the scales didn't register any lasting damage. My start weight was 14st. 1lb and I am now 12st. 9lbs, although it has taken me since the middle of January to lose the 20lbs. The weight loss seems to have slowed down a lot but at 69 I appreciate it does take longer, even though I'm quite active. In 6 weeks my son, daughter in law and two gorgeous grandsons are visiting from Australia and I would love to lose a few more pounds before then but at least I'm not the big fat nanny I was 4 months ago! Good luck for the week ahead everyone.

  • You've done so well to not give up after your little break and the weight is going in the right direction. I hope you have a lovely time with your family!

  • Hi Linda_Bee,

    It's great to see you, and Congratulations on your really great weight loss - you're doing so well. Happy Birthday for last Tuesday, and hope you had a wonderful time. It's great that your family will be visiting in 6 weeks time, and that's plenty of time to lose a few more pounds. I bet they will really notice a difference in you when they see you. Exciting!!!

    Also, brilliant that you maintained your weight loss despite your Birthday celebrations, that is especially good!

    Hope you're enjoying the weekend.

    Lowcal :-)

  • Well done on losing those unwanted pounds; and what a brilliant motivator to see your son and his family again!

    Welcome to the merry band of "Taureans" on this forum - me being another one of them; there must be some truth in what they say about we April/May babies loving the good things in life. However, we can also be strong minded and stubborn when we set our sights on reaching a healthy target!
