8 sleeps to go !

Well at least K’s knee seems to be improving – hopefully the visit to the orthopeadic surgeon tomorrow will let us know one way or the other if it is something serious and if her holiday to Taiwan and Hong Kong is in jeopardy.
On the weight loss front – I have to confess that I jumped on the scales on Monday night, saw a gain of 1 kg from last Monday night’s weight at home and then decided that I was too busy and didn’t have the time to go to weigh. I am sure that if the scales had been showing a loss I would have made the time. Then I read
M’s post and decided that as I was always more than happy to post my losses, I had to do the same with my gains !! I haven’t changed my side bar as that is only my WW figures. I am happy to say that I was down again last night – not the full 1 kg but 0,8 which I figure is OK. It may change after last night as we had Baskin and Robbins ice-creams after Speech Night . I did feel guilty until I wondered what good is living if I can’t even enjoy an ice-cream ?
Someone said to me yesterday that they had been watching Oprah and she had said that we shouldn’t be friends with our scales, we should be friends with our clothes. I have decided that I am going to try to live by that – while I am a scale junky who could never get rid of her scales, I am going to try not to let what they tell me affect my day and how I feel about myself. On Monday I went and bought another two pairs of pants for work because my undies are starting to peep out the top of my current two pairs (not that anyone can see because my blouses always cover the tops of my pants) but they are too big all round. Hopefully these two pairs will be the last that I have to buy and that I can stablise somewhere around this weight.
I am sorry that I haven’t been able to catch up on everyone’s blogs – I do try to pop in and have a read when I can and I will be back reading and commenting when we are back from holiday. Things are a little hectic in the household at the moment and with our departure date now only 8 sleeps away I really need to try to get organized. Our trip to Taroko Gorge is all booked and we are hoping to finalise the flights and accommodation to Hong Kong either today or tomorrow.
Take care everyone and look after yourself.

Ooh good, am glad you gave in and bought more new pants - so important to have a pair that fit nicely.

Its good that you made the mental adjustment towards your ice-cream too - hope it was delish!

Yay for only 8 more sleeps :-)

You sound so much more relaxed Linda. I hope the next 8 (? 7 now) days go quickly for you. I also hope the doctor's visit goes well today.

Good to hear from you, glad you are doing ok. It is hard to not let the scales affect us, but it's a great skill to learn - once you have learnt it, you will be free!
