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,Trudi
