I still struggle with how I let myself go again.  Depression sure can do nasty things to a person.  Well... that and some very, very bad food choices over a long time.  *sigh*



 MARCH, 2013



 MARCH, 2013

 Until I went back and found a photo of me at  my 'heaviest' in 8 years (December 2012)... I couldn't see much of a difference in my face since I started my Onward For Life Plan.  NOW I can.

All I need now is for the body to start showing a difference too... cos right now there isn't much of a difference at all... well except for me knickers trying to slide offa me bum!

Moving on.... cos it's a long weekend and I can spend more time with Stew... I better go do just that.

I think I will take a photo of me face every 30 days, same time as I 'weigh in'.  The difference from December to end of March is good eh?
Quite chuffed about that.

Stew and Griffin have gone for a walk down to the local Garage to check our LOTTO Tickets.  *sigh*... not expecting anything, our money always becomes a donation, but ya gotta be in to win eh?  *smiles*

There has been a bit of chocolate floating around this house, and I don't even WANT any!

Lunchtime, I decided to go downstairs and cut out some more blocks, and then make 3 in the new block fabric I got yesterday.
Once I'd done that I decided it was time to start applique'ing the blocks I had already started.

ABOVE:  and there they are.  The first 3 blocks finished.  I am calling this quilt "ON THE SHELF".

At some point while sewing, I needed a piddle (as ya do) so went up to my bathroom and did me piddle... and had an awesome thought.

ABOVE:  see the chair?  It was in me room... and I decided it would look so much nicer in the corner of the lounge... so I pushed it down the hallway (friggin thing squeaked the whole way!)... and got the guys to put the big green leather chair in the garage so I could put this pretty chair in the corner.  Looks so nice there too.

The green chair is handy in the garage for anyone who is down there with me,  and wants a comfy chair to sit in and yak.  

I'm taking a break from sewing now... me eyes are seeing double again, and the sewing machine was smelling a bit hot.  I'll go back to it  later.

End of Day:  I've had a lovely day sewing!  Stew was a darling and did some of the housework for me.  Steve and Bex cooked dinner, and want to do dinner tomorrow night too... I shall not argue about that!

  1. Why did no one poke you? I tried, I really did but you took it the wrong way. Until you were ready to change no one could have reached you. I am just so excited for you now and yes, your face looks so different - glowing and healthy. Well done to you :)

  2. I guess I am in the same boat as you Chris - I wonder why no one poked me either! Like Lynda says, it's not until we are ready to change ourselves deep down... that anything will happen! Your face looks amazing now - so healthy, glowing and smaller too! Keep up the fantastic work! The rest of your body will catch up in due course.
