Getting There.

Hi Everyone,
How are you today, well I hope.

Stood on the scales again today, I know your not meant to do this, but I'm new to this diet lark, so I'm allowed to be silly.
I'm 13st 2lbs today, ain't that great.
I was so shocked that I got off and on a couple of times, just to make sure it was right.
Even went and put my glasses on, how mad is that.

I can't say I understand this weight loss business, but I do rather like it's surprises, well the nice ones anyway.
I have to go back to the hospital on Jan 26, so I hope to loose the other 1lb by then and be able to show the specialist that I was serious when I said that I might have Fibromyalgia, but it ain't having me. I will beat this thing or at lest have it on the run, as there is no cure.
I do so hope that she tells me I can get in the pool again, I know she wanted me to loose weight and wait before I got back in, but I'm impatient by nature (a failing I try hard to keep in check) and I just want to move on to the next stage, which is to muscle build.

Now I don't want to look like some muscle bound knuckle-head, I'm not even doing it for muscle tone, but from what I have read about this silly illness if you have a good muscle structure you end up in less pain, this is hard to explain, but put as simply as I can.........
A good muscle structure leads to stronger ligaments and tendons, there fore supporting the skeleton in the right positions. This leads to less stress on your whole being and therefore your posture is better. There's also a thing called the Alexander Technique that teaches you about the right posture for you body and then later on this year once I get a bit more movement and flexibility I can move on to Pilates.

Oh hark at me babbling on like like I did something truly amazing, all while eating a digestive biscuit......Ha hahahahahahahaha, but I am only having the one and I am feeling rather smug that I will loss the stone by the time I see the Specialist again, only I don't think she quite believed me when I said I was determined to do it, but then she'd never meet me before.

Oh and I have a bone to pick with you lot......useless you are!!!!
Totally useless, what am I going to do with you all, I ask you for help and you lot clam up.
Excuses, excuses........that's it you might not get invited to my Valentines ball, your just all too naughty.
Mel had the best idea, names in a hat....Mel you get to come to the ball.
As for the rest of you....useless and naughty.
And... and...I still don't know what to do,
I hope one of you have a hat for me to stick the names in.

Much love

ps I love you all really...honest I do. xxxxx ok no whining you can all come.


  1. How about this get them all together and pick a number between 1 and 100. Closest one gets to do the garden with you. See I'm not that useless after all ;o)
    Good for you losing more weight! I weighted myself today and I GAINED 2 pounds! Ugh! But one thing this year has taught me is there are going to be good weeks and bad weeks. It's more of a life style change than a diet and I will stick with it.
    Keep up the good work!

  2. Lia: It's terrible to be called useless when I already feel that way a good share of the time. But as long as I can come to your Valentine's Day Ball, I will revive myself from the depths of despair.

    I'm proud of you for taking the bull by the horns and being determined to fight your Fibromyalgia. You're definitely a fighter.

  3. Hey Lia, congrats on the weight loss. It's hard to do.

  4. *polishing fingernails and snickering* I'm useless but I do have a hat or three! ;-)

    Really--if you're thinking the critters are a potential issue, why not whittle the candidates away on the critter question. Ask 'em--there's a pesty critter who likes to lay on your newly sprouted beans.....what's the solution?
    If they say get the slingshot out and pelt 'em with rocksalt-- *laughing* Well, I'd say take that one....LOL...but knowing a bit about you, you'd probably 'x' them off the list!

    And yaknow, we don't own a scale--'cept a postage one.
    It's that way for a reason! I do hope for good things for you on the weightloss journey. And I like the attitude about your illness. It'll serve you well!

  5. Did you know that if you gain muscle you can eat more? Think of muscle as fat burning tissues. They are good stuff :)
    Congrats on your weight loss daaaaahling.
    *kisses* HH
