1 week on

well when I weighed myself at the end of the first week I had lost a whopping 12lb!!!! I was so happy I was almost jumping the height of myself lol.

here I am into the second week and still going strong, I haven't cheated at all :) I am hoping to push it over the stone mark this week and then next week i will have to start eating again, but I am determined to cut down on portions sizes and watch what I am eating, also keep up the water intake and hopefully I will lose a bit more on my own before I go on holiday....not long now lol

I have pretty much decided to do the Lighter Life diet properly sometime soon, but for now it will have to wait til the fuel shortages are over up here cos I can't risk a weekly drive to Inverness as Ian needs the car for work and if we run out of fuel there won't be a holiday

hard time today

I am still feeling positive about it all, but after a crappy afternoon where Ian was being an arse I sooooo wanted to eat something, I was longing for chips, but anything would have done lol. I managed to stop myself, but it was very depressing to have to!

2 more days and I will have done a whole week, lets hope I can keep going :)

day 3

These first three days are supposed to be the hardest so I am pleased to say I have managed to keep going lol. I haven't found it difficult really, it is certainly much easier than having to decide what to eat, I have no choice and I have to say it is making life easier. still struggling to drink all the water, but will persevere and see how I get on:)

I have my care commission inspection tomorrow and I am really dreading it. I hate being judged on what I do so it makes me edgy to have to explain myself to someone. Fingers crossed it will be ok.

day 2!!

Yesterday went great, I only felt hungry once, at about 4pm but I managed to keep busy so I could keep my mind off food. I started some stitched/beaded Christmas snowflakes to put in the Christmas box. It worked a treat and I was able to hang on til 5pm before I had my next meal shake. I was supposed to drink 4 litres of water, but I only managed 3 litres, but considering I don't particularly like water I think I did quite well.

Today I am going to try my hardest to get the 4 litres in!! I am quite sick of the sight of my bathroom though and have decided it needs decorated again lol.

new start!!

Today I am starting a diet called Lighter Life, it is basically no eating lol. I have meal replacement shakes and bars. It is supposed to be for 12 weeks but I am having a trial for two weeks to see if I get on ok with it. the hardest part will be drinking 4 litres of water a day, but I am positive it will be a good plan for me. I think a break form eating and deciding what to eat will help me a lot, so fingers crossed I will get on ok

I am still busy with the wedding invitations so that will keep my mind off food I hope lol.

Had a good weekend, my mum came on Saturday to visit and stay over, so we had a good catch up over a couple of bottles of wine. Of course Lily ADORES her granny so she had a great time with her. Plenty of cuddles and stories :)

Last week I got the order form to order Lily's school jumpers for when she starts in August, I can't believe it is so close now!! Seems like only yesterday it was her first birthday lol. School uniforms what a thought lol.

Lily's new cycling helmet

Lily got a bike a couple of weeks ago but we haven't got round to getting a helmet for her yet as she hasn't been outside on it yet, (the weather has been so rubbish) Today she was improvising with her Halloween trick or treat bucket lol Bless her she looks so cute

Huge job ahead

A friend has asked me to make her wedding invitations........70 in all. I am looking forward to the challenge lol. This is the invitation I designed for her, the celtic knot I found on Google and the template for the vellum cover is from Mirkwood Templates. I am glad to say she likes the design and I will be making a start on them tonight. I tried to keep the design simple as there are so many to do, it's not a rushed job either as the wedding isn't until August :)
Lily and the kids I look after went back to school this week. Much as I loved having time with just Lily in the holidays I was quite relieved when she went back on tuesday lol. She loves nursery and was very excited to go back, she does miss her friends and even her teachers when she is on school holidays. Bless her I wonder how long that will last lol

Weekend with Janice

Janice and Rachel came to stay for the weekend on 29 march. We had such a great time catching up and showing them round the area. Poor rachel (12) must have been exhausted by the end of the three nights as lily kept her busy playing and mucking about lol. Janice and I had a good old catch up and a right good laugh.

We took them to the Cairngorm Mountain in Aviemore which is our local ski area, it was freeeeeeezing at the top, there was plenty of snow and skiing, we sat with hot chocolate in the Ptarmigan cafe and watched heehee

Love this photo of Lily and Rachel, they both look so gorgeous
