I'll be missing until I hit Australian Shores!
Hi All

So today is my last day in the UK - am flying home to Australia after a brilliant nearly 10 weeks with my lovely Mum, Kissa!

What a 10 weeks!! Started JUDDD and am so happy to have lost 25lbs!!

I still can't quite believe this - how can I have lost 25lbs when I ate like a king over Christmas and New Year - went on holiday to Austria and ate Coffee and Cake every other day!!

How can I have lost weight when I have enjoyed my favourite tipples, Rose Wine and Champagne (not together!!)

How have I shrunk a couple of dress sizes when I haven't done anything in the way of exercise, apart from 2 Zumba classes in the last week?

JUDDD, my wonderful JUDDD BUDDDs and my amazing Mum!!!!

I won't be online (probably) until the 1st of Feb now. Today I fly to Dubai, I have a night and day in Dubai - then fly on to Brisbane (via Singapore) and then it will be intermittent whilst I sort out our internet at home (hoping my mobile broadband will still work!)

I won't be weighing for at least 10 days - because my container of personal effects still hasn't arrived in Australia - due on Monday - so hoping it won't be more than a week before they deliver it.

However, I know that I will have lost some weight - because I'm continuing to JUDDD!!!!!!!!

My new goal is to hit 199 by my birthday in August!!!

See you all when I'm 'downunder'!

I'm so glad you joined us doing JUDDD, so proud of how well you've worked the plan, and therefore, how well the plan worked for you! You had a good teacher.

It's going to fun to hear your report of the reactions and notices of those who haven't seen you in awhile!

Looking forward to your return to posting here. Safe journey! :hugs:

That's fantastic - losing while on holiday must feel an extra special gift!

Also, YAY to having a fellow Aussie JUDDD-er! Will you be in Brisbane/Gold Coast? I'm in Melbourne - I can at least enjoy the wonderful food here every other day! It's too hot to eat at the moment anyway...

Bye for now, Vicki! Safe travels and we'll be seeing you soon, you skinny thang!

Kissa 01-30-2012 05:58 AM

She'll be in Dubai with friends now, enjoying an UD. Good food there I know!!!

Have a happy and safe journey hon...we will miss you, and look forward to seeing you back here...though I must admit a pang of jealousy..as someone left behind in the cold and wet UK!

Thanks all - just about to get on my plane in Singapore - last leg of the journey!!

Thank goodness for the 25lb loss - otherwise it would have been an even more uncomfortable journey than it has been!

See you all soon!!
