1st blog

My first blog, oooh this is exciting! So, I’m going to use this week to make sure all naughty foods are out of the house, then at the weekend I’ll pop to Boots to get a print out of what their scales tell me I weigh, as of this morning I am 16 st 13 lb on my home scales, a UK size 24, and consistently 5’5″ 🙂

I’m excited for how I hope to see myself in the future, though I know I always start off enthusiastically, I’m hoping this will continue for at least my initial two and a half months.

It’s daunting knowing I have 10 weeks to lose 28lb, that’s nearly 3lb per week – hopefully the first week, which I’m counting as Sunday 21st, will show a good weight loss and encourage me to continue.

Good wishes welcome!!!

Quote for today

It took more than a day to put it on. It will take more than a day to take it off.

  1. HI, Jo! Thanks very much for stopping by my blog and liking several posts. I started out with a weight problem 10 years ago. That actually went pretty fast. I am now into living a health life and keeping fit. You can, too. Try to create a healthy lifestyle for yourself which includes good foods and good exercise. Don’t make yourself crazy about pounds, or stone, since you are a Brit. You are on the right track. Keep it up.

      1. Absolutely! Remember, it’s a one day at a time deal. Don’t be too hard on yourself if you slip up. It took you a long time to pack on the weight. Give yourself time to melt it off.
