New Year

I realise I've not updated in ages, I will try to do a monthly update this year. . .

One new year's resolution I made is to weigh in once a month, on a machine that does print outs (so obviously I'm weighing in with my clothes on, rather than jumping on the bathroom scales before a shower, so I do weigh a bit more).  But I thought that the accountability of having a slip to log at least once a month would stop me getting complacent.

I didnt once to get into doing it once a week - it's a bit embarassing it's a machine in a local pharmacy, not a gym and it kinda talks out loud during the process (tho it doesn't announce the results!), so once a month seems reasonable

So far so good, I'm down to 147 pounds fully clothed, and looking back, thats four pounds lighter than I was this time last yr (I still have the old slip)

It's good to keep checking and easy to get complacement !

I'm also cutting down on beer - too many empty calories; that might help too.

I'm also growing my hair not had it cut for over a year, it badly needs a trim but itt grows soooo slowly I feel like it will be short forever unless I make a positive effort to not get  it cut. I suppose there's a similarity: it's the little things that make me fat, not the one offs. It's the little trims every other month that keep my hair short . . .

Hope to keep in touch more - if anyone has a contact for can you ask her to add me, used to read regularly.

I hate it when bloggers fade out of touch, tho I'm as guilty as everyone of it :) real life gets in the way but shall try to do better!

Hi H, glad to see you're still about and keeping your weight at bay. I'm still here, still fat and still have my band LOL.

I never stop trying but my will power evades me. My band is comfortable, it slows me down, makes me think about my choices but alas, it does not stop me eating the chocolate =0(

Keep on blogging, I look periodically to see if you're about.
