I am starting this blog to help to motivate myself even more on this weight loss journey. I started just after Christmas 2009 and I know it will be a long journey but one I lknow will be worth it in the end. This has been a long time coming....

Hell Yeah!

I cannot believe it, as of my official weigh in last night I have now lost a grand total of 4 stone!!!! 4 bloody stone!!! No wonder my jeans are huge!

I couldn't go on about it too much last night as Kheira had a STS this week and I didn't want to rub it in as she is even more emotional than me (and I take some beating!). So I am a very proud girl today as I never thought when I started that I would manage to carry on this far and still want to keep on going and eventually become a leader.

I'm on a different stupid shift today, 3pm - 11pm, where I'm from its called "afters" but round Wakfefield its called "lates". Either way, it's extremely stupid and I don't like it!!!! It totally throws me off for the beginning of the day as I have no idea what to do with myself and then I end up sort of clock watching or waiting around until its time to leave for work. Grrrrrrrr!

I had to start the day with an impromptu visit to the parents as a cheque I have been waiting for had arrived, this then led to a nice lunch with Mum and Kheira at a local garden centre. We all had scrummy cheese and onion quiche which was served with salad which is always a bonus in my book!

That's another thing with this shift, it throws meal times slightly out too. Not as much as nights I admit, but enough for you to be sat with not much happening and the temptation of the vending calling you from down the corridor! Tonight's tea is a vegetable bake from a WW cookbook with jacket potato. It smelled lovely whilst it was cooking so I hope it tastes nice too as I'm also having it tomorrow night whilst on this stupid shift again!

I know Linz had some problems getting home the other night, as did I but many miles away from Reading!! As I mentioned, Barnsley were at home to Leeds on Tuesday evening and I thought the traffic might be bad but I certainly wasn't expecting the nightmare I encountered! It took an hour to do a 10 minute journey!!! Stupid local Derby's! The next bad one will be against Sheffield United so I think we might have either be in for the night or far away long before kick off!
