CURLY TARTS AND WEIGH IN

Lacy curled me hair yesterday.... and I did hers too:


While the curls do drop a bit after a day or so, you still end up with lovely wavy hair.  


Today?  Not sure yet, though we do still have to do the blasted grocery shopping.
Grrrrr.

I think Steve and Bex are out for the whole day too.  

IT'S WEIGH IN DAY.  I have now been on my 'ONWARD FOR LIFE' Plan for exactly 150 days.
And today's weigh in will take place mid-afternoon, that's when I weigh myself.  Being CONSISTENT.

ME:  because I 'hold onto' fluid... I weigh in AFTER I've had a chance to piddle a few times!  

It's now 12.15 pm, we have just put all the groceries away... then it's time for some lunch.

I will weigh in before we go out for a walk.  We are going to walk down on the waterfront (CITY side)... and I'm really looking forward to that.  It's such a lovely day out there.

JULY 2013

Next update today... will be the weigh in result for the past 30 days:  And the result is... I lost 3 kgs exactly in the last 30 days.
Happy enough with that, small amounts every month now is fine, cos at that rate I shall be EXACTLY where I want to be by Christmas.

We are off for our walk now...

AND TODAY I LEARNT.... that walking along the waterfront with your hair out means hair in ya face, hair stuck to ya lipstick and just hair bloody everywhere ! ... and I won't be doing that again.  I nicked Brylee's hairband about half way along the walk to keep me hair under control.
That worked.

The breeze was wonderful... but it still got very hot with the sun on our faces.

It was an excellent walk.  The distance was 4.39 kms... and we did it in 50 minutes, so about 4 kms an hour.  Not really fast, but a good pace.

KAREN:  total loss so far is :


24.4 kilograms
53.6 pounds

Nowhere near as much as you ... but I'm still happy.

End of Day:  just a glorious mid-winter day.
Steve and Bex arrived home just before dinner... we had Butter Chicken.  'Twas rather yum.

  3. Both yours and Lacy's hair look fabulous! You should do that more often! I really do think it makes you look younger :)
    Bex's mug rug is great! She could almost start a wee business making and selling them on either TM or on a crafty FB page... In fact you both could do that as you are so great :)
    Can't wait to check in later to see how you get on with your weigh in! Wow 150 days! You are doing so well!

  10. If you hadn't posted that pic from Dec. I wouldn't have seen these BIG CHANGES happening. They do happen slowly, day by day, and you are doing so well. :)

  11. Love the hair, and the mug rug...and the loss! Slow and steady is the weigh to go (weigh?! Ahahaha!)

    Had no power for days, no phone, nor Internet. Driving me nuts! Thank goodness for Geni the generator, or there'd be no air conditioning, and it's bloody BOILING here! I told the children it was hot enough to fry and egg outside. They laughed at me, so I broke an egg onto the pool deck, and sure enough, it sizzled and cooked! Was tempted to chuck some bacon down by the side, but didn't much fancy a bear coming to lick up the grease!

    Hope you are good and proud of yourself, Chris, cause you should be!
