Not much happening...

nom nom, I like yogourt

banana and watermelon

Mummy…I don't think I like watermelon

I am 10 months old now

Not much is happening in the world of Jen. Its work, work and more work….relief shifts are happening again while someone else goes on leave. But I need the $'s so its all good.
Tuesday was weigh in day….lost 400g so lost half of what I gained last week. Why is that its so easy to gain and yet so hard to lose? Think if I remember how hard it to lose weight I would remember not to do anything to gain???

Anyways…on to my most favourite subject at the moment….my sweet William. he turned 10 months old the other day. Pics are all I will have of him till Christmas and thats when he turns 1 year old.

A few bad days...

I saw this today and just had to take a deep breath and soldier on .
The weather has just been so miserable, its gone from beautiful cheery sunny days to cold, wet and miserable. The colder days have seen me go from yummy filling salads with fresh fish to slow cooked curries and lamb shanks with potato's…and bread. I just have had a couple of "bad" days where I have had binges…looking for food just for warmth and comfort. I was even thinking of not going to my weigh in on Tuesday knowing I haven't had a good week and could get a gain. BUT I will go and take it on the chin…because I HAVE NOT given up!!

And to keep me from going down the road to a 3rd bad day is this pic of my happy little man. Mummy moved the couch to clean and look Mummy I found a blue m & m ….thanks mummy it was yummy …...

I faced some challenges….

My dad.
 But I sucked them up and moved on. One of them challenges was not to eat my emotions. Last Friday Kylee, Garry, twins and William came down and spent the night. Kylee, Garry and William had a marvellous holiday and weren't looking forward to the long drive back home on Saturday. They made the most of their last few days by spending time with the twins and us. 
I am not a fan of cooking, but entertaining people, even family, I enjoy. Making weight watcher friendly meals and desserts for others I enjoy especially when the plates are emptied and complimented on. 
Saturday was hard saying bye to them all as they headed off. It was also the anniversary of my Dads death, always a hard day for me. 
I found the strength to occupy myself and keep right out the way of food. 
And the scales rewarded me today for challenging myself. weigh in today showed a 900 gram loss. I feel as though I am getting somewhere now. Hopefully with another good week next week Icould reach my 10% …. but I will see what this week brings.

And to finish up…here's my cute lil man….roll on Christmas when I hope to see him again. I am lucky Kylee keeps me updated very frequently with new pics of him and his achievements.

A little gain...

Tuesday again…and that means weigh in day.
Was hoping for a loss…but it was not to be…a 300gram gain.
I had prop-points left over for the week, did over my 12,000 steps everyday bar one day so guess it means I will have to work a little harder. I made Boston Beans with chorizo sausages for dinner for us last night…very very yummy, very high in pro points too…..mmmmm maybe I can blame that for my little gain..
Definitely going to make Boston Beans again, but think will make it with bacon instead, be a heap lower in points. 

Kylee, Garry and William are having the best time at the Gold Coast. Above are a few pics of them and my little man over there.  They have had a blast of a time at the the theme parks. And today they went to the Australian Zoo. Tomorrow is their last day there, they fly home Thursday. So looking forward to seeing them again before they have to head home.
Was hoping at Christmas time to go see them and of course celebrate Williams 1st birthday..but I was too late in requesting time off. I can get 4 days off…but its a days drive there and back so it will be too much. Kylee and Garry have requested time off, so lets hope they can get it and they can come down, Fingers crossed.
Early start in the morning so its off to bed for me..
