Yes so I gather, not before time you poor things. Thank the Lord that it wasn't the coldest of winters, but cold enough, and another cold snap just arriving.

We’ll be in my parents’ nice warm house for the weekend, then I hope we’ll actually get our heating working next week! It was supposed to be this week, but it never goes as fast as they expect.

Hi everyone!

Kissa, sounds like the coming month should be lots of fun for you!

Amin, I get you on the drinking, I am a cheap date too since I've been in ketosis, LOL! And it's always interesting how people judge something they have no knowledge of!

Ailuros, hope your boiler is done soon and warmth and hot water is to be had! Keeping fingers and toes crossed for you!

Juno: I hope you'll have an absolutely fabulous time in Berlin! I still haven't managed to get there, we're planning a long weekend at the end of May... So a full report from you is expected!

Lola: hope you have a good weekend ahead of you!

Mint: You seem to be keeping very busy! I hope all is well!

Virgo: check in if you can, you are already missed!

Shy: hope the dinner was delicious and a fab time was had by all. Only a few more days and you're off!

Everyone I so rudely missed: I hope you are all very well!

Well, the weekend is upon us and so is the bad weather Well we aren't going to let that deter us and we've planned a trip to the garden center for some stuff to plant. For the rest, household is not going to wait forever and I need to do some serious organising, cleaning and administration... Not the best things to do, but they need doing!

So I wish you all a lovely weekend and speak to you on Monday!

Welcome Eraser! We love newbies.

I had a great weekend and London is in real springtime mode. Family (my sister and her DH) start arriving tomorrow, so I am hoping to get a big Shepherd's Pie prepared tomorrow morning ready to great MintQ8 (Vicky) when she and her DH arrive on Wednesday evening.

Theatre tomorrow evening.

Have a wonderful break in the sunshine shy.

Enjoying a Down Day today. badly overdue.

Welcome, Eraser .

Have a wonderful time, Shy & Kissa!

I’m just back from spending the weekend with my parents — combined with eating out most of last week, I’m not expecting tomorrow’s weigh-in to go well! It was nice to spend some time with them, and to be away from the building mess for a while. The warm house was good too.

I bet it was. It is chillier just now isn't it?

Not my lowest DD, a bit too much of a rather nice baguette. Ah well.

Greetings all from a rainy Paris! But it's spring rain so I'm going to forgive it ... this time. =)
Reckon I will need more coffee than usual though for this day to go smoothly. Which is also kind of a silly thing to say because while I drink fancy Nespressos at work, they're also decaf!!

This morning I had the awesome feeling of reaching a weight goal! 150 pounds was the original goal I'd set to reach in time for summer. Then the pounds just started melting off this time around so I changed it to "in time for 19 April", which is when my friend here gets married.
And today I weighed in at 148.4 pounds!!
I'm so totally delighted. And I feel so good. No going back. Ever.

Well done! It’s wonderful when you hit one of those spells where your body just decides it can go ahead and use up that stored fuel!

Amin! Well done! I am so happy for you!!!!!


Had half a day off work to get some 'work' done on my face: I had quite a few moles that I didn't like and after having that not so good spot taken care of on my nose, I decided to go ahead and be brave and get 6 moles removed. I don't know why I waited this long, should have done it years ago! I look younger, funny enough. Today I'll still look halfway acceptable, but apparently I'll start looking like cr*p soon enough for a week or so whilst my skin heals from the lasering.

I decided to be brave and make an appointment to start removing my sin of youth (tattoo on upper arm) in October. Enough is enough, and really looking forward to feeling comfortable in short sleeves again. I've hated that tattoo for 10 years now!

For the rest, nothing to report. I was a good girl and went to the gym yesterday evening, and am feeling really good about that!
My back is causing me hardly any soreness anymore and I've finished my back rehab classes, so I'm now going to the gym three times a week.

I thought with all my motivation, I'd post my menu here:

B: 2 eggs, hardboiled, 1 TB bacon fat, 1/2 TB mayo, 2 rashers thin crispy bacon
L: can of tuna, 2 TB mayo, 1 tsp mustard, 2 sticks celery, chopped, 1/2 avocado
D: LC bolognese over shirataki noodles

I'm hungry today. I think it's hormonal.

Good for you, Mimosa. I'm sure you're going to look lovely! And mmm bolognese, love that! Must make some soon.


Following up from a promise from aaaaaages ago here: sizes at C&A! Aren't you all super-excited now?
Well, sadly I'm not sure how helpful this is going to be but the exciting part for me is that I just bought a pair of bootcut jeans that are listed as:
EUR 38
FR ES PT BE LU 40
IT 42 (dang those tiny Italians)
INCH 29

No official UK or US in there so again, maybe not so helpful.
But I'm doing a happy dance - smallest pair of pants ever owned (even if I know C&A runs generous siwes). Need a dancing smiley.

All I ever do these days is whizz by....sorry...

Mimosa great with the 24lbs loss you must feel so good.

Holiday sounds awesome especially the dog sledding...Have I said all this before DOH!! Brain is so muddled too much work..yes that's what it is.

Amin as well great loss We are both around the same weight. I've been struggling with 146/147/148 since Xmas but this week had a good talk to myself and going totally clean for a month and hopefully that will kick start the loss again. Although Sunday will be a difficult one being Mothering Sunday my kids won't buy me chocs or sweets but will probably want me to drink some wine with them. BUT I am having a clean month....

Shy is off to lovely Sunny climes today so good for her.

Ailuros how are you doing? Hope things OK with your Dad? and the boiler situation being resolved...miserable without hot water or heating.

Kissa as usual flitting here there and everywhere doing so well on JUDDD

Hi to everyone else Sly, Juno, Jan, Mint et al......

Oh and PS...sorry not got time to do but should we have a new thread for Spring...last Friday was the 1st day YAY.
