Plateau ... what plateau?

I just smashed right through that sucker tonight with a 1.5kgs loss!! Woohoo! I am so close to the 60's. In fact my scales this morning gave me a reading of 69.7 so I know that I am not far away from that at my official evening weigh-ins.

Tonight's weigh-in also marked the 15kg mark for me and my offical WW 10kg mark since I signed up. And how did I celebrate? I came home and ordered some new clothes from the Ezibuy catalogue of course ;)

I didn't stay for the meeting tonight as I wanted to get home to my sweetie, although I would have liked to. So I will be sure to hang around next week. There were lots of new members joining up too which was great to see!

I hope that you all enjoyed your Valentines Day. My dh gave me a beautiful card and some chocolates and then we had a nice dinner at home tonight. The girls also made me a beautiful card each which was so sweet.

Happy Valentine's Day.

WW's Update

Wow it's been so long since I posted a WW's update! December/January were pretty slow as far as weightloss goes. I guess that is to be expected with all the social events, and the fact that we had no local meeting and so motivation was lacking. I think for the whole month I only lost just over 1kg. I know I should just be happy it was a loss and not a gain, but I was still a little disappointed with my efforts.

February however got off to a great start! Meetings started back last week and I made the switch from the Points Plan to the new Core Plan and so far it has been great. It means I no longer have to count all my points and I am eating from a much better selection of healthier foods (and not manipulating my points to fit in all the crap I want to eat!) LOL

I will just have to wait and see what the WW's scales tell me tomorrow night. My scales at home are showing a 1.5-2kg loss so hopefully I will have a good result. I still need to get back into a much better exercise routine, as I have been quite slack in that area lately. But I will blame it on the heatwave we have been experiencing lately because I find it far too hot to get out an walk. Well that's my excuse anyway, and I'm stickin' to it. LOL

This time last year...

...I was laying beside my dad where I stayed until he took his final breaths in the early morning hours on Valentines Day. Has it really been a year? It doesn't seem like it. I miss him so much, and they say it gets easier. Well I am still waiting for that! There is still an open wound there, that hopefully with time will heal.

So Valentines Day this year will be a quiet one for me. I hope that you get to celebrate with the person/people you love. Be sure to tell them how much you love them and how important they are to you, because you just never know when your time together will come to an end.

Treasure every moment. Happy Valentine's Day.


So long since I updated and so much to catch up on ... watch this space :)
