Yesterday was DAY 240.

And I recorded a loss of....:  3.6 kilos (7.9 pounds).   I am pleased with that loss.
I earnt it.

I am counting down to Christmas Day, when I hope to be at my 'GOAL'.

There is no better feeling than knowing you are doing well... making good choices and not letting stress stuff you up.

I reckon stress is the precursor of so many health problems we all have.  Who agrees?

We all live with various degrees of Stress in our lives.  But around here?   It is a constant.
But I am doing my level best to not let it derail my weigh loss efforts.

Also worth adding... I'm damn proud of myself for doing this 'all on my own', and not going to Weight Watchers or any other weight loss support group.  I always knew I had it in me.

Of course, that's not to say I didn't really enjoy my days as a member of Weight Watchers.  Hell... I met some of my VERY BEST FRIENDS down in Palmerston North through Weight Watchers!
*Hi* Sandra, Chris, Anne, Janene, Janine, and whoever else I've forgotten!

ABOVE:  the kids last night, enjoying playing Play Station on Griffin's bed.  They get on really well... SOMETIMES!  *smiles*

Well... I better go and start the day.  A quieter day today hopefully.
I've got two dresses of my Mum's to shorten... and I need to get it done before she leaves here on Wednesday.  

Miss Muppet needs her bottle too...


ABOVE  we have a full house... and a noisy house.... and it's lovely.
We all went out to Sylvia Park mall for lunch today, and now we are relaxing at home.
Miss Muppet is sound asleep, and Dante is saying, very loudly, that he doesn't WANT to go to sleep.  

I'm sure Bex will win!

Off to put dinner on now, roast beef today.

End of Day:  again, early so I can spend time with the family and visitors.
Catch ya tomorrow.
nite nite


  1. Congratulations. That is great. Glad you are enjoying what yu are doing and about Stress!!! It's probably the main reason some of us got to where we didn't want about how stress works on our bodies metabolism the more it amazes me I am able to maintain and continue to work at losing.

    Must dash .... going on a 5.5 k fun-walk with daughter-in-law at starting at the Pegasus Golf Club. Hope I can make it since I already have a blister from my 'practice' walk!!

    :) Blessings
