Good morning to everyone,

Well, I've only been with you now just under 2 weeks and learning to control my urges better every day.

I've cut out the junk food, crisps, cake, chocolate, biscuits and the odd packet of sweets.

Made a promise to the dogs that I would take them at least 1 mile walk everyday whatever the weather.

Well, in that 2 weeks I've gone from 1 mile drag to now a 3 mile walk!!! So pleased with myself. The dogs are happy too 😊

Hard to make yourself go sometimes but it's paying off.

Looking forward to weighing myself on Monday morning.

I pray that I will be lighter. 😇 So thank you to everyone who has posted /replied to people so that I can read and get inspiration from.

Good luck to all with their journey of health and happiness.

Hi sounds like you have made some great changes. Sure the scales will reflect your hard work on Monday :)


Thank you 🙂

It can be hard work but I now so much want to be slim and now understand that sitting on my butt looking at pictures of slim people and sighing saying oh I wish that was me, I have to work for it and earn that beautiful figure 🙂 We can do it can't we 😊

Good luck on your journey.


That will be you in that picture. Just keep at it, if you have a bad day then move on and start again the next day but never ever give up. You so can do this :)

Some great changes there - I so know what you mean about sometimes a struggle in this weather (winter wet/ cold /damp/ dark) to get the motivation to get up and go out

I struggle in the winter and more so this week as I am on holiday (albeit just at home)

Good luck on your journey and wishing you a loss on Monday's weigh in :)

Thank you Cracker10,

Being on holiday at home is hard work for the diet isn't it!

But I'm sure your being good 😇

Good luck with your Monday weigh in too.


Good luck on Monday..I'm sure the effort you put in will show on the scales x


Thank you Yonnie123,

That's great news you've done brilliantly😃


Thank you Cat33,

That's kind of you 😊


Hi Sheepsdog,

This is great news, and I hope you have a really lovely weekend! :-)

Lowcal :-)


You've done really well... Fingers crossed both our 2 week weigh on Monday will be a positive one x


Hi Bigmama,

Thank you,

yes looking forward to the weigh in.

Good luck to you on Monday too.

Hope your weekend is an easy one 🙂


You are sounding well on track 😊 The eating and exercise soon become a habit 😊 Dogs make such excellent exercise buddies don't they? 😊🐾❤️


Good morning Anna61,

Thank you for your reply 🙂

Weekends are harder for me as I've always classed weekend as eat what you want and a couple of glasses of wine.

But I'm having to scrub that idea and the food devil is working hard against me.

But I just have to tell myself well which do you want.... Bulging bellies or a nice toned body.... 🙂

Then look at my dogs faces as they say you promised 😊

As you say they are fantastic walking buddies and a good reason to get yourself out and moving.

I did my 1st kettlbell workout yesterday and my thighs are pinching from the squats! But onward and downward plus its only every other day. Phew!! 😋

You make me ache just thinking about if!! Lol 😊

We are away for the weekend and lots of pounding pavements yesterday and today - missing my wee girl 🐾❤️ but she's happy with our friends 😊

Enjoy your weekend 😊 I generally save calories for a few treats 😊 Life is for living after all 😊🍷🍴🍾😊


I hope your weekend is lovely!

Haven't been away for ages.

I'm sure pounding those pavements are giving you a good work out 😀

And I'm sure your were girl is happy too.

Have been out with the dogs but only managed just over 2 miles this morning, hard going didn't want to go lol. Will have to make it up on the treadmill.

Do you find trying to fit 10,000 steps a day in easy??? I don't!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend hope you have lots of fun. 🙂


Great decisions! I also started by cutting out all obvious baddies, and there were loads of them! It’s incredible how quickly the addiction goes! And I also have 2 dogs benefiting from longer and more energetic walks, it’s such a lovely feeling of acute healthiness (i just made that word up!) when you come back home after a good walk. Keep it up Sheepdogs!
