I'm still here

Just a quick note to let you all know that I am still around. Lots going on in my life right now (actually for a quite a while now) and I need to concentrate my energies elsewhere.

Thank you so much for all the lovely e-mails and phone calls that I have had asking how things are going - you are all such special friends. I do try to catch up on reading blogs when I can but haven't had much chance for leaving comments due to time constraints.

All things considered, I am doing OK with my weight and have been maintaining very well. My exercise has gone for a ball of chalk - mostly, but not limited to, a lack of motivation. Am not sure what is going on with my fingers today - woke up this morning and couldn't fit some of my rings on - very strange given that it is a little cooler today. I certainly never thought that I would have a problem getting them on given how loose they normally are.

I hope that you have a fantastic weekend doing whatever you want and not only the things that you have to do.

Take care and look after yourselves.

Visit to Melbourne

Just a quick note to let you know that I will be in Melbourne on Wednesday 23rd March 06. I have some work to do in Sydney and Melbourne but they are only flying visits. The problem at the moment is that I don't know where I am staying due to the CWG but I should find out early next week and will post details as soon as I know.

If any of you are able to catch up with me when I am there - that would be great - otherwise maybe next time. (Please mail me if you are interested so that I can get some contact details etc and can let you know how I am going or if flights are delayed etc)

Have a great day and take care !

Small loss this week

Just a quick update - had a small loss of 0.2 this week but really can't complain as I haven't been counting points or doing any exercise given how sick I have been feeling and also how dreadful the weather has been.

Lots happening at the moment - at work and at home - so haven't had time to update or catch up on blogs much. Plus our internet connection at home seems to be playing up - or maybe it is the PC that is starting to go on the blink - am not sure which, but whatever it is, it means that I am not able to hop onto the computer at home. But, I will be around to catch up when I can.

Take care everyone and have a great week !

Quick update

My weight is sitting at a record low this morning – unfortunately it is because I have been sick for the past two days and haven’t had anything to eat !!!! No doubt it will move up again now that I am eating but I have to say that I like the look of myself at this weight !!!

To any young girls / ladies who are trying to lose weight at the moment – do it now before your skin loses too much elasticity. I have noticed lately that my skin is definitely a lot more saggy now than what it used to be. While my face doesn’t have many wrinkles / laughter lines or whatever else you want to call them, my arms and legs are a different story. Even though I completely moisturize twice a day, the elasticity has gone and nothing I can do (that I know of) will bring it back. While I spent many years yo-yoing with my weight, now I really regret not getting serious about my weight sooner – I am sure that if I had lost the weight earlier my skin would be in a much better place than what it is at the moment. I do know that sitting in the sun doesn’t help and I do make sure that I always have sun protection on before I sit in the sun, but I still feel that brown fat is so much nicer to look at than white fat. Who knows, maybe in years to come I will regret having sat in the sun now but, as we never know what is around the corner I feel that, while I am sensible about it, I will continue with it no matter who nags me to stop.

I have a lot happening at the moment so I will probably be away from here for a while – take care everyone and be good !

BTW - does anyone know what has happened to Double Figures Brelle ? I can't seem to find her site anymore.
