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.
