I've had a magnificent weekend away from home. The last couple of days spent with friends on the South Coast has been a great tonic for me. I've put aside all thoughts of work and in this case, the plan. While I've had an amazing time what with the sea air and the sunshine, the plan has gone completely to pot and I'm feeling quite guilty about it too. I know that every now and again, you have to put things aside and let your hair down but it's been...

Crappola.

So the scales of doom haven't been kind this week. I've managed to put 2lbs on this week but I suppose I do know where I've buggered up this week. So Friday last week was a bad day. I started it fairly well and avoided a buffet at lunch time in work. There was all sorts of pastry and treats. Pate, breads, crisps. You name it. If it was going to be off plan, it was there. Flipping nightmare. However I resisted. I went out to the break area to have my...

I might have mentioned a couple of weeks ago that it was Six Nations time again. It's been a good month of Rugby and culminated at the weekend with Super Saturday.

So another week down and another full stone lost. I was aiming for 1.5lbs this week and whilst I thought I had done a bit more with a few extra walks, I got what I needed and can proudly say that I've lost my eighth stone. I know that people say I'm an inspiration and I don't believe it but I suppose I need to accept that this is an incredible achievement but I'm not the star here. I've got a couple of stars that have been very instrumental in ...

Not a good week.

Not a good week.
So my weigh in was early this week. I'm working tomorrow until 8pm so I'm not going to be able to get to group. Bit of a shame as it's the Greatest Loser competition this week and I think I may have been in with a shout! Anyway, the week has been a bit of a toughie. I went out after work on Friday last week. Of course I'm surrounded by youngsters and I have to try and keep up with them. So, there was a load of beer and rum that flowed freely and there...
