Gains and gains.

Today I’ve been more than just a member at Weight Watchers. I’ve been “clerking” – basically taking the money and selling the goodies then sending the members off to get weighed. It’s really interesting and I’ve learned sooooooo much by being at six meeting so far with another three coming [Read more…]

Parallel Universes

I’ve been ill for the last five days. Proper sick like. Fluids coming out of every hole but you don’t need to know about that. During my sick time I’ve been spending a lot of time alone (on the toilet) and either reading or thinking, while not screaming out in [Read more…]

Milestones and Mistakes

Tuesday is weigh in day for me and yesterday was no different. I was down 1lb. That’s me down a stone since coming back to WW. I’m over-joyed by this. Nine weeks of being back at WW, eight weeks of weigh-ins, not one gain. I had one week where there [Read more…]

A short love story.

It was a warm August evening in the Midlands when I decided, after a long and stressful day, to go for a drink after work. Walking into the bar I was disappointed to see the place packed to the drawstrings with men and women in power suits either celebrating or [Read more…]

Bad Parenting – Two Stories

Brad got an unexpected day off today so after sorting a few bits out with the new car we headed off to Galway city. I wanted to get a tee-shirt for Monday night, do some shopping and grab some lunch with my devilishly handsome husbear. During lunch – a seafood [Read more…]

The Unexpected

For the first time since rejoining Weight Watchers I was confident I’d be down. I’d been careful all week. I’d tracked most of the week and when I hadn’t I carefully considered what I was eating and I got some exercise. I walked into class with my head held high, [Read more…]

Working on the 80/20

So in my efforts to get thinner and fitter I knew exercise was going to play some part in it. Every diet plan you join… Hang on, no, not every* diet plan does mention exercise and it’s important you know that. Why? Because it’s the difference between and good diet [Read more…]

Mindset

At the Mad About The Voice Ireland event I won a chocolate biscuit cake in the raffle. It was delicious. I know because I ate most of it. Brad had some but not much. I’m sure you can imagine that knowing how much I’d eaten this week played heavy (pardon [Read more…]

Dangerous BLTs!

Yesterday at home I was having a mini meltdown because I was worried about my weigh in. I’d had a week of BLTs while I was cooking. BLTs aren’t bacon, lettuce and tomatoes which is just as well given that I’m allergic to tomatoes. No, BLTs for me are “bites, [Read more…]

Closing Rather Weighty This

So, I’ve decided to shut down one of my other sites. The site Rather Weighty This was great when I started it and I used it when I need to but it was set up for the wrong reasons. I wanted to separate my weight loss journey from my every [Read more…]

So, as you can see I like to write something at least once a month.  Sometimes I have nothing I particularly want to say I just like to try and be consistent. This is one of those months where I have nothing much to say so instead I’m going to [Read more…]

Diary

Can’t do it. Can’t do without my handwritten diary. I tried but I just can’t. I tried to do everything in iCal but I need my handwritten diary too. I’m not sorry! Stupidly though, I now update both!

Opinions

I’m one of those people who love hearing other peoples opinions. I don’t always agree with them but I love hearing them. And yes, sometimes when I hear them I start judging the person. Anyone who claims “I don’t judge others” is lying. It’s human nature. How you vocalise your [Read more…]

Twelve Reasons Why I Love Her

A few years ago, more than I can be bothered to count, I decided I’d had quite an interesting life and would write my autobiography. I wrote quite a few chapters and kept going back and editing them and padding them out a bit. I took out some stories, added [Read more…]

*RWT Import* – Body Image Issues

Happily I handed over the forms with my bank details on it to the girl behind the reception desk. I had the tour and I was impressed so arranging a monthly direct debit was perfectly fine.  The next stage was booking my fitness assessment. Excited and motivated I booked my [Read more…]

*RWT Import* – Well!

So I’m, halfway through week two of my Fitter You programme and today I had my second weigh-in at Weight Watchers. To say I’m amazed and happy just doesn’t seem to cut it. When I went back to WW after Christmas I was 20st 9lb and at my first weigh-in [Read more…]
