Hi all, they say confession is good for the soul, here goes. Its Valentines day and I am cooking a steak with all the trimmings for Hubby and myself for tea followed by strawberries and cream, just finished work after 4 back to back 24 hours shifts, so think I deserve it and so does hubby he wont be home till 7. BUT I promise to be back on the straight and narrow tomorrow. Oh and nearly forgot having a big glass or red wine too!! xx

Got measured at work for new suit this morning - last done about 3-4 years ago - I have gone up a size - knew it would happen but it is a bit of a shock. I am determined to lose some weight but it will have to be when the warmer weather comes and I can have salads etc as I like my comfort food too much...and I KNOW I should exercise but I am getting rather lazy in my (late) middle age.

Hi All, feeling quite pleased with myself managed to get into a pair of trousers I have not been able to get into for ages, so I have reached something else out of holiday suitcase that as been parked in spare room since last July, tried something else thats a bit tight and thats my next goal to get into that. Found this a bit more motivating for me than thinking, Oh gosh got to lose x amount of stones. Heres a question, what has everyone else done to motivate there healthy eating or exercise plan. ,Look forward to hearing your replys lol Ann xx

Well Ann - at the moment I have having to keep my sister motivated hence why I decided to join the gym with her the beauty is I needed to do something anyway to motivate myself because quite frankly I was becoming damned lazy!!! I will admit it but my sister was also becoming the same with low energy and an ever increasing waist line and my sister's job involves a lot of driving around the north west so not much exercise whereby I do walk over a mile to work each day.
The benefit to us both has been enormous - our energy levels have increased a lot and we are enjoying visiting the gym three times a week together - motivating each other. Healthy eating wise is going good too although I still allow myself a treat and don't deprive myself of too much, so far so good at the moment.

Third weigh in at weightwatchers last night and was over the moon that I'd lost another 3lbs (9lbs now in total). Great as I've had a stinking cold for the last week as I've sucked 100s of strepsils and drunk gallons of honey and lemon mixture!
I'm really motivated but wish I hadn't got to this weight in the first place!

Well, a week on and four visits into Gymophobics and although it's too early to notice any real difference, I can certainly say it hasn't done me any harm. The scales are, if not heaving a great groan of relief, gently sighing that my weight is slowly but steadily reducing (even if it's only a few ounces a week).
But, the best thing is that I've broken the "lazy" cycle of sitting at work all day, driving home, cooking and eating dinner and slumping in front of the TV for the rest of the night. At least now I can sit down after my workout, get out the laptop and not feel like a total couch potatoe!
