Haa haa, spent the night with my legs up on a pillow, I'd do anything once to try and get rid of water! It worked a bit, but I didn't get much sleep. Oh well, I'm still going, no more skivvying off and doing a no weigh, I just have to accept that there ain't much I can do for the moment.

It looks like it's gunna be a lovely day, it's Lisa's 19th Birthday today! HAPPY BIRTHDAY LOBE ! (she's our son Steve's fiance, lives here with us), I really like her, even though she's a piglet! haa haa ha...

Weight went up (oh what a surprise!) by...... .700 grams, not anywhere near as bad I thought it would be. Maybe sleeping with my legs up helped?

Not sure what we are doing today, but I do know one thing... we are going out for dinner... hee hee he. Think I might have a nice dinner and even some pudding, oh err.

Thanks for the comment Briony:
I have had fluid retention problems for about 17 years now, I do not add salt to anything I cook if I can help it, I drink at least 3 litres of water a day (about right for my weight) and still have the problem ... my Doctor thinks it might be my Adrenal Glands playing up... next week's test might find out why. I hope so, and I'm hoping it's not my kidneys packing up! The doctor remarked how brown I was, and suggested the fact that I go brown so quickly might be tied into my fluid retention! WEIRD EH? Strangly enough, since I stopped drinking 3 litres of Diet Coke a day, it has gotten worse! My Doc is totally baffled, so am I.

I've decided I'm just not "normal", and will get on with my life, whatever happens. I am going to be the best I can be.... and live my life to the fullest. I LOVE LIVING NOW.... not like 3.5 years ago when all I wanted to do was die.

Just a quick comparison of 'then' and 'now'.... not too happy about the mid-belly bulge, but even if I never get rid of it, I am 100% better now to how I was back in August 2003! Even if I never lose another kilo, I AM HAPPY !

His nibs went to the supermarket for fruit... and look what he got me.... awww ain't he nice? He does random nice things for me, I'm a lucky tart!
And before anyone asks what nice things I do for my hubby.... hey.... he gets to sleep with me, that's enough! lol

Dinner: went to our favourite place : Breakers, had a nice dinner, I did not eat the chips. I did not have a pudding. Brylee felt sick so we came home early. End of story.
Watching telly, kids gunna have a party in the garage, I don't expect to get much sleep. nite nite


  1. Hope your weigh in went ok hun.. thinking of ya.


  2. Hi sweetheart, sorry I haven't commented for ages. Life is mental right now. About your fluid retention. How much water do you drink? Do you know that for every 25 kilos of weight we should drink at least one litre of water. So if you weigh 75 kilos that's 3 litres a day (that's me and I NEVER drink this much). I read somewhere that doing this every day for three weeks could make us lose 4 to 5 kilos - just by increasing our water to the right level - no increase in exercise or drop in calories - just the water. I'm yet to drink enough to see if this works.
    Hope your doctor can sort it out for you.
    Have a great weekend.

  3. 700 gms isn't too bad at all. I was just thinking this morning how brown you were. I hope the doc can sort it out for you hun.
    Those photos are amazing, you have done so well and what a great head space to be in that you're happy right now - well done, I think that's what we're all aspiring to.
    Have a great day gorgeous!

  4. Ohhh 700 grams is nothing my friend I gained 500 this week too... he he he I am leaving it in the past and hoping next week is better.

    Isn't your hubby just a treat.... such a lucky woman you are.

    I hope your doctor can sort it all out for you hun... not nice to have fluid retention.

    Wohooo the photos look amazing and I bet you are soo soo proud of yourself for achieving the weight loss hun. That is fantastic.

    Love CM
