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....

I'm sorry I've not managed to blog before now, you know what it's like when you've got too much happening and not enough time to do it in!

Not much to tell so far really. We had a lovely weekend catching up with friends, and nice to be at work for a rest! The friends we met up with on Sunday night are over from the USA and we haven't seen each other for just short of two years. It was really emotional and so so lovely to see them. They didn't recognise me! I mean I know I've changed but I didn't think it was that much!

I'm planning on going to the gym three times this week to try and kick start myself into reaching another stone off by the end of the year. I did my normal work out last night, a swim tonight, then another session hopefully tomorrow. I even ran for the first time EVER last night on the treadmill! I never thought I'd build up the courage to run in the gym but I did, and I grinned like a loon the entire time! It was brill! I did one minute of walking then one of running and it felt awesome!

I finally managed to find some time and plan our evening meals for this week too. Last night was "creamy red Thai curry" (WW recipe) and tonight is "Pork steaks with cumin roasted carrots" (also a WW recipe). I recommend the red Thai curry to anyone, we thought it was delicious! Our other meal options for this week include stir fry of some variety and vegetable risotto. YUM!

Right boys and girls, I'm off to finish my lunch!
