Not Much To Report

Hi Guys,

I know it’s been weeks since I last blogged but life has a habit of just getting so hectic that I don’t seem to have any time left at the end of the day!

Well, the wedding has been and gone and proved to be a beautiful day. I wore bright pink and bought the most gorgeous shoes that were hot pink silk! The dress was from an expensive department store that I wouldn’t normally be able to afford to shop in but, it was in the sale. And there’s another first, the label that I bought, I wouldn’t have fitted into this time last year!

I haven’t lost quite as much weight as I wanted to have done by now but, I can see the difference when I look in the mirror and that is helping me to keep the motivation up. I have actually lost a stone and a half – far better than I have done in the past so I am doing something right! But, in the last couple of months, my weight has yo-yoed up and down by about 5lbs. So, nose to the grindstone now – my next goal is to be able to wear a gold silk dress to the Christmas party and, for next year, to be able to finally don a bikini on the beach and not feel totally self conscious!!!!

My next big expense is going to be to join the local gym so I can tone up as well as lose weight. I have been watching a programme on TV about 16 people going into a house for 8 weeks to lose weight and get fit and it has definitely inspired me to get moving on the exercise front. The walking that I do is good but . . .

Anyway, I will be making a huge effort to make sure I blog weekly again so, watch this space and, don’t forget to let me know how you are getting on.

See you soon,



  1. well i think you looked fab!! well done, looking forward to you blogging properly again.

  2. Twit Twoo.. look at you!
    You look stunning Trudi!

    I've been to the same 'club' as you the past few weeks.. messing around with the same 4-6lbs.. up one week, down the next - getting totally ticked off with it all and having a mega pig out (like that helps.. NOT!) I must admit that going to the gym and doing some weights and cardio exercises has certainly helped with the general tone, so although the weight has been messing around I have still managed to lose inches!
    Good to hear from you again.. stick with it!


  3. Aw thanks Sneeze :o) Losing inches is still good - would be happy with that lol :o)
