One week down....

Yep its one week down and all's well. I have followed the plan 100% ....real proud of myself, been a angel I have!!! Should have been heading off to my meeting tonight but being a public holiday there is no meet, so another week to go before I can find out how I have gone. I could weigh on my scales...but nahhh I'll leave it to next Monday, that way I think I'll stay more focused.
Everything else is great, saw Shawn and Shaz on Saturday arvo, met him in town, they are happy and all his therapy is going well. He had court on Friday and his urinalis tests are showing that he has cut wayyyyyyy down on his cannabis use...well done Shawn. They are still living with a friend, no place of their own yet, neither of them have jobs.....Shaz is actively looking as is Shawn but he is finding it harder as he can only work certain days due to his therapy and councelling.
Kylee and Stephen are still waiting to move into their house, they should after an inspection from their bank have the keys next week. They have done their final inspection and all the things they wanted recified have been done.
We will fly over in a few months time and have a long weekend with them and have a look at the house...counting down already. Kylee also wants me, and a few others, to do an oversea's trip with her before she starts her family....she doesn't want to go to Bali again so is looking at Penang or Phuket. I would love to go having never been oversea's so am thinking about it thats for sure. This will be a good 12 months or so away plenty of time to think.
Our next trip, after our brief visit to Kylee, will be another camping will be with some good friends of ours (who we travelled with in the NT) driving across the nullabour and heading over to tour Tassie....that will be in February next year..thats not all that far away, time sure is flying by.

Don't you quit !!

This was my mantra when I first began weight watchers back in 2005...and one of the reasons I made goal in early 2007 I think.

When you've eaten too much and you can't write it down,
And you feel like the biggest failure in town,
When you want to give up just because you gave in, and forget all about being healthy and thin,
So what your're over your points a bit,
Its your next move that counts...
Its the moment of truth, its an attitude change
It's learning the skills to get back in your range.
Its telling yourself "You've done great up til now, you can take on this challenge and beat it somehow"
Its part of your journey toward reaching your goal,
You're gonna make it, just stay in control.
To stumble and fall is not a disgrace, if you summon up the will to get back in the race.
But, of the strugglers when losing their grip,
Just throw in the towel and continue to slip,
And learn too late when the damage is done, that the
race wasn't over....they could have still won.
Lifestyle change can be awkward and slow,
but facing each challenge will help you grow.
Sucess is failure turned inside out,
the silver tint in a cloud of doubt.
When you're pushing to the brink, just refuse to submit,
If you bite, you write it....

I went back to my meeting for the first time since the beginning of February last night and for the first time in heck knows when I actually stayed and listened to the lecture....and it must have been an omen as it was all about "getting back on track"
The scales weren't nice, as I knew they wouldn't be ..... since my last meeting at the beginning of February I have put on 8.5 kilo's....soooooo that makes it 14 kilo's I have to lose to get back into my goal range.
I will do it....I have to do it, I want to do it....I AM going to do it !!
Shawn had his access visit out here on Sunday, it was his youngest son Kaleb's 1st birthday during the week.....haven't they all grown? It was a great visit...but 2 hours is just not long enough.

Back again...

Last night we took Kylee and Stephen to the airport, they caught the red-eye flight back to Melbourne. I miss them already. They had a busy day today, they were seeing the builders of their house....they were hoping to move in while they were still on holidays but apparently all won't be ready for 3 more weeks yet. Very disappointing for them, it was meant to be ready in December.....but ahhh well they have waited this long. They living with Stephen's parents, thay were only meant to be there for 6 months but its been 9 months now......and from what I have heard it hasn't been easy !!!!!!

Today I went back onto weight watchers...I really need to rein myself in. I feel bloody awful and looking at myself in the mirror I am disgusted with myself. I will go to the meeting on Monday evening.

The wedding is over, Shawn is happy and content, only worry I really have is hubby and these damn headaches he is getting....wish he would hurry up and get to the doctor and find out what is going in. Ted says it is stemming from his neck, but I don't care...his Dad died of tumours on his brain and I am worried, the headaches have been getting worse and more frequent. I went to the doctors tonight, I just had to have a check up, need to have bloods taken on Saturday morning to see how all my hormone/thyroid levels are going.

Have posted a few more pics of the wedding....these the photographer took.....some absolutely awesome pics were taken....wish I could show you them all.

My favourite pics

This is Paul and myself watching the kids as they strutted their stuff down the ailse.
A pic I took of Kylee as the photograher was organising her for pics.

This is Kylee thanking her Dad before we left for the wedding.

These are my favourite pics of the wedding....

Today I am off to the airport to pick the happy couple up as they fly in from their honeymoon in Bali....they from the sounds of it have had a great time. The only disappointment I have heard about is not being able to go parasailing as she was told she was too fat!! Bloody hell nothing like being told ....darn rude I thought!!

Thankfully easter is over....I have done nothing but eat and am really starting to feel like a whale out of water!! Hopped on the scales and I am 10 kilo's over the top of of my goal range. Its time I put the brakes on and started getting my shit together again.

I go back to weight watchers on the 19th April...but need to stabalise myself before then.

Anyways best go get myself organised and get ready to head off to Perth...meeting up with a girlfriend at one of the shopping centres for lunch before going to the airport.
