hi folks,

well, here be we - another week flashed by. Last week I lost 0.4. I never say "only" - it's ALL
good! *grin*. Still, I didn't tell you guys....... This week however I've lost another 1lb - which
is wonderful. I'm now less than I was before Christmas. Phew! I now weight less than 9 1/2 stone - a
landmark thing UK peeps will appreciate - and that feels darned good.

In fact it's 36 weeks since I was this weight (back when I was gradually gaining). Ah well - long
time to put it on, long time to take it off :) (You gotta love spreadsheets - you can see and
analyze Everything!)

Odd coincidence though - 36 weeks ago I had just lost a couple of pounds gained when we went to
Amsterdam for a weekend. This weekend we're going to Amsterdam too! - I'm hoping to do a little less
damage this time.......but I do know I can deal with a gain if I get one, I have the power! *grin*
Anyway, this time would just be a blip on the downwards path, rather than part of the upward trend I
was in before.

Meanwhile the background stresses to life continue.......but *fingers crossed* things are showing
signs of looking up a little.........

Excellent, congrats! I would love to be in the "single digit stone range".
:)

On a similar note, it always bugged me that Bridget Jones's weight was always around 9-9 1/2 stone
and she is supposed to be overweight/struggling with her weight. Add to that the fact that Renee
Zellweger had to put on 2 stone to play her, and that just makes me think that we have a very skewed
perception about what's overweight!

I will cartwheel through the neighbourhood naked if I make it below 10 stone! (but only in
summer months)

Cheers, Petal

Way to go Krys, 2 losses in a row is fantastic! And to get back to pre-holiday weight is wonderful.
Now don't let that Amsterdam trip get the best of you. Have a great trip, enjoy - but get right back
into things when you get home.

I am glad to hear things may be looking up a little on the home front. Hope it continues to do so
and all problems will be quickly rectified. In the meantime ... as we say around here ...
forgedaboudit ... go on your trip and have a fantastic time!

Great you lost 1.4!! I'm glad you have gotten back to a point you were at before you started
gradually gaining.

Finally getting around to catching up with the newsgroup. I've been exercising in the evenings
instead of hanging around here.

Anyway, GREAT job on this week's reduction and reaching that 9.5 stone landmark. I'm glad to hear
there's some sign of stress alleviation coming soon.

Thanks Kate! I swear, in 200 years, when archaelogists dig me up and analyse my bones, they'll be
able to tell that the fingers on my RH (little & 4th) were permanently crossed *grin*

Thanks Natalie! I love it there too. Not as much as Bruges mind, but
Amsterdam is kinda like Bruges, is also cheap to get to, but unlike Bruges -
it's still cheap once you're there! It's a celebratory trip for hubby's
birthday - so I need the spending money to go as far as possible :)

Thanks Petal :)

yep - the bridget jones thing is balmy if you ask me..........I'm within my healthy BMI - so that
could hardly be called overweight could it? - but then the media is a funny thing........

Thanks Joyce.

Well, Amsterdam was fab - though the scales may not agree....... I had a heap of AP, walked a great
deal, and came in roughly on target over the trip so...... I probably cut it finer than most weeks,
which will no doubt show up at WI - but I didn't blow it, and I'm back to the grindstone now :)

It was really nice to have a bit of a break from the home issues - hope to have them sorted
too soon :)
