Scales going down.....

.....slowly !!

Went to weight watchers meeting tonight and scales are down by 800grams. I have had another great week, its been so cold that soup has been on the menu quite a bit so I guess that has helped. Excersise is still down to what it usually is but this week was better than last week. Ahhhhh well will see what next week last weigh in before take off!

Saturday we are off down to Manjimup for mum's 80th birthday party. Not going to stay down there overnight as on Sunday we want to do some final packing up and some last minute chores around here as we take off on hols on Friday 3rd July, so next weekend will be our last one home before we go. Mum is getting excited about the thats great.

Shawn and Hannah are still visiting the kids and have heard nothing yet as to when/if they will get the kids back. The kids have been moved AGAIN, and are all separarated from each other. They took them down to Busselton so they could be together more...yeahhhh that didn't last long did it! Luckily they do see one another regularly.

One week down

One week down and 2 more weigh in's to go before we leave on our trip. Have had a great week. At last weeks's meeting I bought the new calculater and I have been tracking my points on that (plus checking out the point values of a few things)....and yayyyyyyy I had a whole week of sticking to points. Excersise hasn't been as good as it usually is....wet and cold weather has kept me indoors for some of the week BUT I have dragged out a few dvd's to do for this week, just in case as rain is forecasted again.

Anyways weigh in....lost happy with that. Still have over 4 kilo's to get to within the 2 kilo's of goal.....but not too worried about that, just to be losing again and feeling good about me is what I am happy about.

Nothing much else is happening, still no changes with Shawn and Hannah.....they still haven't got the kids back. I don't know what progress has been made there, if any, I have taken a few steps back from them and letting them deal with their problems themselves, trying not to take on too much of their stress as well. They know where I am if they need me....they know that.

I have written to DCP thou and requested access visits for hubby and I for when we get back from granparents we are entitled , now the kids are down in Busselton and Shawn has his access visits down there we don't see the kids anymore....we miss them.

Weighed in

Weighed in 7 kilo's over goal...or 5 kilo's if I take off the 2 kilo's we are allowed over. Soooooo my goal to myself is in 4 weeks....which is what I have before we take off on to lose 5 kilo's.
I have sabotaged myself tonight....stupid me. Today was so busy at work that I ate on the run and by the time the work day was over and I had weighed in I was starving and just over-ate!! Luckily I realised what I was doing before I really over did maybe the damage won't be bad!
Here's hoping for a great week...go Jen !

Am going well...

So far since coming back from Melbourne all has been going well. When I hopped on the scales and saw THOSE horrible numbers come up I have been really committed to losing these extra kilo's. I do not want to feel like crap as hubby and I travel around on our holiday. Couldn't think of anything worse than being uncomfy for all those kilometres. I want to be able to climb in and out of the 4x4 with ease, sit without getting cramps..... and I so want to be comfy and wear my shorts and bathers when we get into the Northern Territory and enjoy the warmer weather.
Anyways since Monday I have eaten well within my points, have excersised everyday except today....but this weekend I have 2 long walks planned. And Monday night I am back to my weight watchers meeting and I will go every week till we leave on our holiday on the 4th I have 4 meetings to attend AND hopefully lose at least 5 kilo's. Will be trying anyways....thou I need to lose a bit more than that to get back within my goal. The last month or so with all the menopausal crap I have been going through and all the dilly-dallying I have been doing PLUS all the Shawn stress I have gained big clothes tell me that!! Will let you know Monday what the weigh watchers scales say....mine I don't think are too reliable at the moment, think the battery is on the way out.
Ohhh and speaking of menopause....I am trying a herbal tablet AND fingers crossed since taking them I have had 3 great nights sleep with NO hot flushes.....please let it continue!!
The weekend before we leave on hols we have my mum's 80th birthday party. Invites have been sent out to close friends and extended family. Mum keeps on saying don't want to see this one, don't want to see that one...they never visit me....she has been a real grump. Think it might be because she has just had a medical and some test results needed following up with more tests. I know mum is scared that her cancer (she had colon and liver cancers) are one follow up test is because of a high liver reading. Hope not....but as I said to her, we'll cross any bridges we need to cross after blood tests and ultrasounds have been done and all results are in. All crossed here!
Tomorrow I have no visit with Shawn and kids.....I am going to miss them so much. Shawn now goes down to Busselton to visit them....all of them are now down there in care....and in 2 separate places. This way there is no travelling for the kids now.....was hard on them I know. And also are now closer together and get to see each other more than what they were.
Ted and I have refused to go into DCP and have police clearances done with them ....just on principle. We are the grandparents, have had DCP here supervising all the access visits, been approved by them to have the kids stay here before....AND now they say we need to fill out papers to have those kids stay overnight!! Not doing it... BUT we are applying for OUR access visits, those kids need us as much as we need them....they must be wondering what the heck is going on, must be all so confusing for them, poor loves.

I'm back...

Me at the hen's night doing my dare!! I had to straddle a chair, make it buck and shout out yea haaaa!!!! Not a worry!!
The drink at The Crown !! We all had one...phewwwwwww...thou didn't manage to drink it all....

Me at the makeover with friend Georgie

Off to the makeover with Kylee

The Eagle mascot ...

It was a full on 4 days....but we achieved all that had to be done. We found THE wedding is absolutely gorgeous and Kylee's dream dress...and the bridesmaid dresses. Wish I could show you the pics....but I can't !!

The footy was great...and yeaaa I did fit into the clothes....but only just. The Eagles didn't play too crash hot, the umpires were sux...but the atmosphere at the stadium was awesome!

Onto the hens night and that marvellous....thank you to Kylee's sister in law to be Renee. The evening began with a session of makeovers, manicures and martini's at the Long Room and then onto Cookie (a Thai Restaraunt) for dinner and games. From there it was onto The Crown for a little drink and a spot of gambling.

A lot of walking, walked all through the Victoria Markets, up and down streets, all throu the area that Kylee is going to build....but way too much eating a lot of crap food. But today I am back on track....and after reading what the scales said today I WILL stay there till I go away on the 5th July !!!

Sorry...blogger would not allow me to put pics where they should be, darn it!!
