All I'm doin is sleepin !

the tablets are really knocking me about and all I seem to do is go downstairs and have a cuppa - go upstairs and climb into bed - go downstairs and have some lunch and go upstairs and climb into bed - go downstairs and have another cuppa and sit on the sofa and fall asleep - let the cats out and the dog - let the cats in and the dog - go upstairs (they all follow me upstairs) and we all fall asleep on the bed together. Oh the joys of having a bad leg - I hate it - a week off work but I cannot concentrate on crafting because the pain is so bad. Awful horrible rotten stinking leg pain.

Another 1lb off for me

it's coming off very slowly - but maybe that is better than losing it quickly - but would have liked to have got my half stone award today - half a pound to go. Having said that I am now 1 stone 6lb's lighter than I was when I joined sw in 2010 - just got to make sure I keep it off this time around................how many times have I said that "! Knee still bad makes me feel sick - and the medication too

A&E straight from work about my knee

doc said that it was probably twisted in my sleep and didn't think it was arthritis ! strong pain killers and crutches and week off work (feel exceptionally sorry for the girls at work as we are so so short staffed as it is) - feel sick with the painkillers and quite dreadful really. hope it gets better very soon.

work is awful

I was thankful that I was kept at my job and didn't have to move location .............. but we are so short staffed and work is so manic that I think we (the ones that were left behind) have drawn the short straw..............it is a nightmare. I really don't know how much longer I can continue to work at this pace - especially with my bad leg and now a bite on my right shin - and really feeling quite awful.

2nd weigh in

I lost 2lb's & olivia lost 3lb's which means that I lost 5.5lb's altogether and olivia lost 9.5lb's altogther. I am happy being back on the way down - and now 1 stone 5lb's lighter than I was 2 years ago. Hubby also lost another 3lb's - so he's 6lb's lighter in just 2 weeks and son 4lbs lighter overall - altogether as a family we have lost 24l'bs in JUST 2 weeks. whoop whoop.

We are running around like headless chickens.............it is absolutely manic, it is ridiculous and stressful and anxious and VILE............ work that is. I just don't know IF I can cope with this job for much longer.

Slimming World 1st Weigh In .................

I lost 3.5lb's - not a personal best but it's the first time I've lost such a lot of weight in one week in the last 12 months or more. Olivia lost 6.5lb's - I was REAL pleased for her - and pleased for me, not going too mad tonight having a Wing Wah Chinese eat as much as you like meal...........I will have to try and be a bit restrained as I don't like feeling excessively full - I know I normally feel awful after this type of meal. So - onwards and downwards - would love to lose another 3.5lb's this week and get my half a stone next week - but already feeling much better anyway. Olivia LOOKS much better already too.

Back at Slimming World with Olivia too

Nice to have someone with me who knows how difficult it is to lose weight and keep it off. I was only a stone lighter than I was 2 years ago - but at least I haven't regained all the weight I had lost ! I had Keir take some full length pics of me from front and side view but CANNOT bring myself to post them yet - they are SO awful. Maybe I shall post them when I've lost a stone and feel better about myself. We shall see.

And yet another exploding box !

I love making them - this one is for our 35th Wedding Anniversary and is an exploding box for our Wedding back in 1977 - how quickly those years have gone. SADLY a lot of the people are no longer with us - it was very emotional making this box.............
