Down Again!

Wow, I've dropped another pound to a new all-time low of

16st 3lb - 227lbs - BMI 37.8
(a total loss so far of 35lbs)

And that's a grand total of two-and-a-half stone! I'm so very pleased, not to mention surprised since I feel, at the moment, that my dear, dear band is doing this all for me and I'm just tagging along for the ride. I don't feel hungry in between meals so much any more; when I get hungry, I eat one of my three main meals. I still have a terrible habit of snacking on unhealthy stuff, most especially chocolate, but I am starting to cut out the mid-afternoon cake with my coffee. I know full well that when I go to a coffee shop, as I do most days (it's my only vice!), I buy a cake with my coffee purely out of habit. But, this may finally be coming to an end because the last three or four times I've bought a cake, I really haven't enjoyed it. Yes, it took me three or four attempts to realise this, but it might finally have sunk in!

On a sort of unrelated note, last night I went with my friend Liz to see Will Young at the Henley Festival. Dearest hubby had bought me the tickets as a surprise, bless him. We had the most fantastic evening - the people-watching was top notch, and Will Young was absolutely fabulous. Needless to say we stayed away from all of the eateries serving very high class meals, but we did indulge in an ice cream each. Before I set off for the evening, I got hubby to take a photo of me for comparison purposes. This is me (and hubby) in May 2009. I thought I looked quite nice at this wedding; the photos tells me otherwise!

and here I am in the same outfit last night (July 2010) weighing 35lbs less (possibly more, as the above photos were 10 weeks after I'd given birth, so I may have been carrying some baby weight - now, there's an excuse if ever there was one!)


  1. Love the dress! You look FANTASTIC!

  2. Love Will Young! I would love to see him in concert. I love Shayne Ward too (another Brit/That's My Goal). You look mahvelous in the recent picture! You look very pretty with your hair pulled back.

  3. Congrats on your new lowest low!! :)

  4. Congrats on the new low! You're looking great.
