Here we go, six of my current best
- The first stone is gone and there's a few more to go. Let's see how we are doing this time next year. After all I once lost four stone with Weight Watchers and everyone told me I had overdone it and I looked a bit ill. Yes, I do look gaunt, I agreed and thought I would put maybe half a stone back on. I regained it all and much quicker than it had taken me to lose it.
- I've just hung the laundry outside for the first time this year and was overjoyed to see a couple of buds on the peony bush that I planted a few years ago and which has yet to flower. All I have to do now is cut down the Rosemary that is threatening to swamp it. I think I need to buy some loppers that aren't blunt. (the photo above is what the flower should look like).
- We're going out to a lovely restaurant for Sunday lunch and I am going to enjoy a good meal but still be careful. This means no lovely bread that is always put out. You can usually tell the French tables by the fact that they don't fall on this glorious pain and have to have their basket refilled. They have control and wait for the proper food.
- All my current clothes are now too big. This means I can move down to the section of things that have been tight for quite a long time. All women will appreciate how good this feels (and maybe a few men as well). Of course now I cam cursing the fact that I gave all my tiny clothes away when we left the UK. I could have been back in them next year.
- I haven't had a biscuit for about nine months. I couldn't find the post where I blogged that I had become quite addicted to a few with every cup of tea. That is history now and they say that it takes 28 days to break a habit. I reckon I am definitely cured.
- It is nine years this year that I gave up smoking 20 Marlborough a day. If I can do it then anyone can. I didn't use patches or gum or any of those aids. I turned to food and as someone who had always battled with their weight and used smoking (and other stuff) t0 squash the appetite, it was inevitable that I then became a little porker.
