Golly gee, I left home early this morning and have been running around like a headless chook. So far I have had my nails done and hair done, picked up a layby, brought a cushion thing for Vince the wonderdog, brought some herbs. The housework hasn't been done.

WEIGHT WATCHERS Well all going well in this department, the weight loss has been slow, there has been some hiccups. I had a 90 day cough and basically was sick as a dog for 3 months. It was hard to eat and with me if I don't eat enough it doesn't help me losing weight, so got over that. I am a huge believer that weight loss is directly associated with your mental state of mind. If you are enjoying the whole WW thing, like I do, then it is easier. I love my meetings, love my leader and class members, have a great online support basis and try and make myself enjoy the food that much more. Weight Watchers have excellent cookbooks and I use them regularly, people would not know you are cooking from a weight watchers cookbook. I have basically lost 1o times over 11 weeks, my record is 9 losses in a row. I have found I don't need or have the desire to set myself up with unrealistic expectations of say 1kg a week - it would be good but it is not realistic - as long as I lose then I am happy. I have got to the point where I have had to box up stuff for selling or giving away as they are too big, so that is great. I managed to get into my red Ezibuy dress the other day, when I brought it online it was a bargain - $20 but when I got it, found it was too tight around the thigh area - the other day I wore it and was so bloody excited I nearly died !! Here is a photo of me in the dress - excuse the hair - it was taken at 6.30pm after a long day at work.
FAMILY are doing okay, my brother is looking after nephew 'N" full time, it is a hard job and all he does is work and look after his son, we are very proud of him and what he is doing.
WORK is going well, I am going to be helping out another law firm and doing some work for them as well as my own, this in itself is a good thing as there are times when I am a bit bored and it is good for the days to go quickly. I have been att this job for 3 years and now starting my 4th year, we specialise mainly in family law and workers compensation, so sometimes it is emotionally draining.
ONLINE SUPPORT - I have found over the last few years, the support and friendship I have received from the online community is just lovely. My friend 'G' fails to understand the whole concept and the concept of blogs - she says she is private - I don't understand this. I have found some of my closest friends are from the online community and when I meet them in person it is just like meeting an old friend. There are some bloggers that I must get to their blog every day otherwise I get all huffy.
VINCE THE WONDERDOG is still the absolute love of my life, he gives me so much love, currently he is a sleep and snoring on the lounge on his new cushion. The expression on the face is "Mum can you just leave me alone" - he is not impressed. Sometimes I am just so glad he cannot speak.
Well, it is 5.21pm and I must get up from this computer and get some jobs done and work out what in the hell I am going to eat for dinner. I am in a good spot, I am hoping that the exercise component of this weight loss journey starts to feel like something I want to do, instead of having to do. Anyway, if you are reading this and am not a follower, please follow me or send me a line. Take care everyone and email you tomorrow.
