Walking On Air

Morning all I hope you are all enjoying the sunshine today 😀 Well something very lovely and surprising happened to me this morning…..

I took my kids to school and then went over to talk to one of the mum then I walked back over to my spot in the playground and another mum looked at me and said “ohhh you have really lost some weight now haven’t you , you look narrower ” !!!

Well knock me down with a feather !!!! I have never been refereed to as narrower in my life and in fact I would never have thought that narrower would be a word used to describe ME !!!

It’s amazing that just a couple of words can really make you feel so very good about yourself 😀 😀

It’s weigh in tonight so heres hoping I come home with my 1st 7lbs award a nice shiny sticker to go on my book 😀

Week 8 Weigh In…….

Ok so I am coming to the end of Week 8 on my Slimming World Adventure and its weigh in tomorrow night…. ! I can not decide if I am looking forward to it or if I am dreading it 😛 I have a very mixed week Wednesday & Thursday fantastic Friday good also until we reached Friday evening ate a fair few syns but got up Saturday morning and got straight back on plan however this only lasted until dinner at which point I lost it. I had a takeaway curry for dinner followed by a large bar of chocolate!

So Sunday morning get up and give myself a good taking to and from then on I have been really good and 100% on plan so as fair as my weigh in goes tomorrow I could gain, maintain I am not expecting to lose anything though.

So I guess I will have to wait & see !!!!! 🙂
