I can see Clare Lee now Lorraine has Gone …

I can see Clare Lee now Lorraine has Gone …

I know it is a long drawn out joke and the punch line is, “I can see Clare Lee now Lorraine has Gone,” but I stepped on the scales and I am down to 191 pounds, that is 9 pounds in threes weeks which is pretty fantastic for me and I feel like singing. The first song that came to mind was, “I Can See Clearly Now,” and every time I sing the song I think of the joke. Good old Jimmy Cliff, what a wonderful up beat song.

I can see clearly now the rain is gone.

I can see all obstacles in my way.

Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind.

It's gonna be a bright, bright sunshiny day.

It's gonna be a bright, bright sunshiny day.

I am well on my way back to the 189 pounds which is where I normally like to be at the top part of normal for me with 172 pounds being bottom end of normal for me. However can I stress I was 172 pounds at 17 years old, and I am a little past that now, so maybe I should not class that at the lower end of my spectrum, especially since I only had a 34/36 inch chest then and I now have a 44 inch chest, most of which is because of shoulder bone. I still have kept my 34 inch waist though in all that time.

Hey though that is enough about me.

(ooh...) Look all around, there's nothing but blue skies.

Look straight ahead, there's nothing but blue skies.

I really hope your week has been as good as mine. Keep on going with your goals irrespective of what they are. If you do slip up though, even if for a week, just keep on singing because no-one can take away your inner song!

Oh, yes I can make it now the pain is gone.

All of the bad feelings have disappeared.

Here is that rainbow I've been praying for.

It's gonna be a bright, bright sunshiny day.

Have a great week.

  • Well done on your weight loss 🎉🎉🎉

    I often think in songs... one time one of my work colleagues was having a bad day and not talking to anyone.. I being oblivious started singing Cliff Richards.. "it's so funny how we don't talk anymore" all in the team found it hilarious as I was singing away without thinking - when they pointed it out I was a little embarrassed for maybe 5 mini-seconds, and then couldn't get the song out of my head!! 😂😂😂
