200 Golf Balls lost so far!
One of the kind people on the WW message board kindly posted this for me and I LOVE it!! I think sometimes we can forget how well we're doing, and it helps if we can relate the amount into everyday objects that you can go and pick up....not that an Elephants willy is an everyday object, nor would you probably want to pick one up....but ya know what I mean ;)

Gonna print this out and stick it on my fridge...cos I'm a geek like that lol! Dennie popped round yesterday and reckons you can really see I've lost some weight now, so that cheered me up...that and that her Mum thinks I look like Sandra Bullock, can't be bad eh?! I used to get told I looked like loads of different people when I was skinny, Louise Nerding/Rednapp, Martine McCutcheon (sp?) neither of which do I bear the slightest resemblance lol! But Sandra's a new one...I know one thing for sure and that's that I'm looking OLD! :'(
Having a couple of hungry days this week, but hoping bumping up the gym a notch will compensate for any over point days. And they're not over by ridiculous amounts just 1 or 2 here and there. So fingers crossed!!!
Right I best go do some housework, got dinner at my Dads tonight as my Mum is on holiday AGAIN, first time I've been round for dinner since me and my Mum fell out and I'm well looking forward to one of my Dads dinners, they're lush! Though extremely fattening so gonna have some 0 point soup for lunch and then gym it afterwards!
If you've made it this far you probably already have a good idea of who I am and what i'm about. If not the short story is I'm a long term fattybumbum :( stuck in a rut for too many years and i'm sick of being embarrassed by every photo I see of myself with my massive double chin or huge bingo wings! Bill (my son) starts school in September and there is no way I'm going to be the fat Mum waiting at the school gates!
Hoping doing this blog will help me as I go along, get out any frustrations (I tend to have a few lol) and maybe give inspiration to anybody out there who like me has tried pretty much everything to lose weight :) Muchas Loveage, Loz xxx
