Thank you all. I had a lovely birthday. Spa day was back and neck massage. Followed by a facial, sauna, steam, jacuzzi and swim.

First day of protein only went ok.... But then day 1 is always easy. My holiday is 31st May and not August doh! So only got 10 days to get a couple of pounds off. Then to put it all back on lol. Why do we do this to ourselves.

Weather is so disappointing are we ever gonna get a Summer

Have a nice day x

Lola - So glad you had lovely spa birthday! Sorry I missed it! late!

DD1 arrived safe and sound Saturday evening. She has been resting and recuperating from jet lag and exams. Today she is taking DD2, DD3 and DS2 shopping for DS3 birthday. He turns 12 friday. Hard to believe!!! I am taking him, DS2 and 4 of their boy cousins to play paintball saturday. Should be exciting!

Starting to get quite warm here. I was enjoying the unseasonably cool weather. Blowing sand again.

Blondie you amaze me that you have so many children and go to work full time as well...amazing. It all sounds like such hard work phew.

Well day 3 protein only for me. Having DD here has definitely helped but she is going on Friday. Been on it 2 days and had the grand sum loss of 300grams...hmm don't think that is even a pound..but its a loss the same. Maybe my Friday I might be a couple of pounds down.

I think my body has had so many diets thrust upon it...that it just goes into saver mode lol.

Have a lovely day to everyone whatever you are doing. Weather still naff naff here in the UK...when will we get a decent summer? NEVER !!

Lola, good work on the protein, fingers crossed the 300g will some multiply into 1kg!

Blondie, enjoy the paintball, rather you than me - Al Forsan? Glad DD1 arrived safely, enjoy having her home.

Still on the protein only and down 400grams..my body is so stubborn AND I.ve stuck to it....will keep going for this week anyway. Take it off to just put it straight on again on the holidays.


Hope you all having a nice day. Take care.

Weather is so up and down that sunshine is followed by a temperature drop of the sort you experience in Chicago when the Lake Effect rolls in (with a similar drop in light levels and the dramatic sky).

I hope this gets it out of the weather front's system and the Bank Holiday weekend is decent.

Yes happy weekend. Protein only week. Total disappointment. Stuck with it and by yesterday put 1 kg on!!! What is happening I've had to up some meds quite drastically so maybe that causing water retention. Gotta get this kilo gone by Friday.

Hope ya all good xxxxxx

Hi All,

I am only quickly popping in and won't be back till mid June:

My grandmother passed away peacefully last Friday early morning.
We have her funeral this coming Friday, and after that I'm off for two weeks.

Take care and see you all here sometime in June,

xxx

Mimosa...so sorry about your Grandmother Our thoughts are with you at this distressing time. Hopefully your holiday will be a nice follow on with some rest etc.

I am also off on holiday this Friday so frantically trying to get rid of this mystery kilo that I have put on...how silly am I... only to put it back on again from Friday onwards with more I guess lol.

Doing the 3 day egg diet...luckily I like eggs.

Mimosa, I'm so sorry about your grandmother. May she rest in peace. Hope the funeral goes well and enjoy the break afterwards.

Oh Lola, how frustrating to gain even after being so good. Makes you wonder why we bother sometimes doesn't it? Bet you are excited about your hols, lucky lady!

Shy, hope you enjoyed the brief rays of sunshine.

Mint, hello up the road! Shame no time to come and see us in AD.

All good here, still not got to grips with any eating plan though, grrr.

I'm back.

Mimosa I am so sorry about your Grandmother, so hard, even though it was expected. I now how you will miss her. I hope the funeral is beautiful and that you enjoy your two week break.

We had the most wonderful time, saw some amazing places and the sun shone almost all the time. We are not really cut out for travelling with a group, but all in all it was worth it. Loved our last 2 days in St Petersburg when all the others had gone. We went to the Marinsky Ballet and saw The Nutcracker which was amazing and then had a lovely meal, just the two of us.

130 this morning which is nothing short of a miracle after all the food. But we did do a lot of walking which helped I am sure.

Back to my wonderful JUDDD to lose the extra pounds then 5:2 to maintain.

I have missed you all.

Kissa - Your email account has been hacked. I just got an email from you saying you were in Philipines and got mugged and need me to send you money! Of course I know you aren't in Philipines but you should probably take of it immediately! xx

Thanks Maryam. I am on to it. They cleared my contacts and all emails back to September last year this time. Have done all the forms and account changes so fingers crossed all will be well soon. I should change my email provider, but the thought of trying to let friends and all those companies know fills me with horror...

Cairo is both heaven and hell, all rolled into one in my opinion Blotto... You will love it I am sure.

Down 2 lbs after a good DD and made it to the gym today, nice to be back into the routine.

hey hey....well down that pesky kilo from the egg diet...so that worked...I will do that again for definitely. I guess its just finding what suits you. I couldn't believe the kilo I put on from protein only and I didn't cheat.. So its gone.

However, tomorrow off on holidays...and it will go straight back on again Its psychological though that I go at a weight that I feel happy with.

So adios.....I will see you in 2 weeks or so..unless there is wi fi connection. The Caribbean awaits me from this horrible wet cold spring/summer we are having in the UK.

Take care to everyone and enjoy x

Enjoy your lovely break Lola, come back tanned and relaxed.

Well I've got my contact list back and most of the emails, but still am not receiving any new ones. So frustrating.

Mint - So sad we can't get together in Dubai. Perhaps once you are settled in Oman!!!

Blotto - Enjoy your holiday. Egypt is on my wish list!

Lola - Have a lovely relaxing holiday!

Kissa - Hope your email problem is cleared up soon.

I'm off to Ras Al Khaimah this afternoon for a wedding. Will be spending the night and coming back home tomorrow just in time for a baby shower for SIL. Then I'm off next week to relax and spend some time with DD1 before she goes back to uni!

Have a lovely time at the wedding Maryam. Bet you will look stunning again.

How are the knees?

I was only 128.8 this morning after far too big a curry last night. Planning a seriously good day today.

Such a beautiful day here in London. Everything is in bloom on the Heath.

Having a good weekend but over ate last night. I love bread and olive oil... But of the calories and that is before my dinner. DD today!

Hope you aren't melting out there in the ME.
