This, of course, is...

... not my body!!!!

But I'm pleased to report that I've lost around half a stone in the month or so I've been trying to cut down on junk food and eat more heathily! And the beauty of it is, I've not had to deny myself completely. I'm still eating some nice things, like fish and chips and Stella Artois once a week, and our home made pasta bake etc. I'm afraid the chocolate has had to go for the time being, but once I get down to a weight I'm happy with, I may allow myself one or two choc treats a week. Possibly as consolation when I feel particularly fed up.

I think that if I can maybe lose another half stone by RWA, or maybe three quarters, I'll consider that sufficient. I've been caught in the prison of total weight/diet obsession before, and I'm not going to let that happen again!

Just dropped by to say "booyah!" which, I believe, a frat house way of saying "well done."

And to give a little encouragement for the writing/editing done and to be done. You go, girl!

Well done Portia!

I've wedged and can't shift more. Must be something to do with Easter biscuits.
