Moving on...

This little fella was 9 months old a few days ago. On Sunday  they overnighted here and I got the pleasure of watching all his new achievements since I saw him last. He crawls and climbs and just loves checking himself out into every shiny little thing….like my stainless steel bin to my glass sliding door. I have lots of drool and dribble to clean up.
Mummy and Daddy have taken the little man on a holiday to the Gold Coast for 9 days….so I'll see him on their return before they head off back to their home and work….
They bought these gorgeous little ones down for the overnight visit too. Jaz and Alex turned 5 on the 22nd September. What cuties they are….and they love their little brother, spoil him rotten they do.

We went and picked up hubby's 89 year old mum and bought her out for dinner that night so she could see Kylee, Garry, Jaz, Alex and William. William just loved his great-nanna…and Mum thought he was just adorable. William seemed to realise that mum was frail and just sat on her and didn't jump up and down. It was just beautiful to watch.

Anyways…after my downer of a week last week, I managed to regroup and get myself on track. Weigh in today showed a 100g loss. My leader showed me a graph on her computer today when I told her how I was exasperated with how slow the weight was coming off. Its 5 months exactly since I rejoined weight watchers and in that time I have lost 8 kilo's. That roughly works out at 300grams loss a week. 
So, its just over 5 months to our cruise so if I can loose another 8 kilo's in that time I will sitting on my goal weight. How could is my leader? She sure bought a smile to my face…..soooooo its onwards and downwards...

A Down Day

Its been one of those days today. It started okay…up and off to work early, cleaning before 6am this morning. Bad weather was predicted, and that came rolling in by 9am keeping me busy keeping floors clean and dry.

Home at 12 lunchtime…a coffee and a chat with hubby. Had some lunch….and then it started. I just couldn't stop eating….cravings big time. I have eaten everything and everything, just couldn't seem to satisfy my hunger.
So today has been wiped…going to pull myself together, and have a good nights sleep and remember tomorrow is another day.

There will be no way in on Tuesday…going to have a no weigh.

Look who is growing like a weed…
William has just turned 8 months and already he is climbing up on everything and standing up and pushing everything and anything around the house…
Thankfully Kylee sends pics/video's of every little achievement so I don't miss out on anything. Can't wait to see them all again. Hopefully at the end of this month, they are heading down and spending a few days with the twins before flying to the Gold Coast for a weeks holiday. If we don't see them then, will see them on their return.
Then it will be Christmas before we see them..and Christmas means William turns 1 year old. Unfortunately not knowing what we were doing for Christmas this year, I didn't ask for any time off. Few other people have so I now can't get time off other than the days I don't work. And it may mean I will have to do a few extra shifts. Luckily Kylee thinks she and Garry will be able to come down here…..fingers crossed they can.

Been having some beautiful weather here, some gorgeous spring days. All the wildflowers are coming out on our block

Heaps of orchids this year, even have found a few new ones, ones I have not seen before, can't wait for them to open up so I can take some pics.

Off to go start some dinner now, just finished a couple of loads of washing so my day off tomorrow can be exactly that…a day off.

Weigh in on Tuesday, a very pleasing 1 kilo loss…onwards and hopefully this week I can have another good loss.

Another stay the same….

I upped the exercise, I counted pro points honestly…was totally on track for 6 of 7 days and hopped on the scales at my meeting this morning….and darn it saw another stay the same.
I know I shouldn't be disappointed BUT I am!! Was ready to go buy a block of chocolate, or a big serve of fish and chips but what is that going to achieve but more disappointment next week. And I am not a quitter…I have to keep going. I didn't put this weight on overnight..so I guess I not going to lose it overnight either. Just feeling mighty frustrated that its its not coming off just a little quicker than what it is.
Patience Jen….just have to remember last weeks post and all those little bits add up to a lot.
So….onwards to next week. 

This little man always brings a smile to my face.
So happy Kylee keeps these pics coming, it feels as though we not missing out. He is 8 months old now…geeeee where has time gone. Little imp is pulling himself up on everything and standing on his feet….won't be long and he'll be up and running.

Little by little

Ashlee, Caitlin, Matthew with William.
 Our eldest Paul, his partner Tanya and their kids have been on holidays for the last 7 weeks, They left here and headed off to Central Australia, stopping at Ayres Rock, Alice Springs, katherine, Darwin and every other little place in between. They met up with Tanya's mum and her partner at Kununnura and travelled the Gibb River Road stopping and exploring the sights. It is a trip we did a few years back so know how much they have enjoyed it. The kids have had a blast.
The other day they stopped off for a few hours and spent time with Kylee and their little nephew/cousin.
Yesterday was weigh in day….and another loss for me. Only 200grams off but I'll take it. Was of course hoping for more,  but all those little bits add up to a lot. 
I think its just over 25 weeks before we head off on our cruise and if I lose 200g every week till then I will be very close to where I want to be.  
Onwards onto another week….
