I was down again this week and I couldnt be happier

well its been another super week for me weight wise. i got weighed tonight, and guess what? I was down again! I was down 1.5 pounds again this week. I’m over the moon! so so thrilled. its fab news. i’m now down a total of 1 stone 6.5 pounds, for my US readers thats 20.5 pounds. isnt that fab? in only 15 weeks too. I’m slowly losing it which is what i like as when you can lose the weight slowly you have more of a success rate of keeping it off. i wasnt even disappointed that i didnt make my 1 and a half stone award tonight, im only half a pound away from that. there is always next week though for that. i’m very proud of how i did. i cant believe it. i knew i’d be down this week, well i had a feeling i would be. but i didnt think i’d be down 1.5 pounds. its just fab. couldnt be happier.

awesome mom

my mom came over. she is cutting my grass for me as i speak. i’m sooo lucky. if she didnt do it I’d have no one to do it.
i am so thankful for her. she said when she’s done cutting both the back and frontgarden that she’ll help me cook dinner.
i’m going to offer to pay for a taxi back home for her. its the least i can do.
i have to try to contact my social worker mary to look into applying for funding to get my back garden slabbed. there is funding available to do some home improvements so i’m going to see if i can get it. hopefully mary can do something for me and help me to apply and hopefully the organisation who gives out the funding wont say no.
mom has COPD and she really isnt able to be doing heavy work like cutting grass. she has breathing attacks and has to take it very slowly when she’s doing it.
so yeah hoping i can make life easier for her by doing this and getting the garden slabbed with concrete.
i am grateful for her help though. and also it feels good to be back home again. i didnt go volunteering today. i said i’d wait another week before i go back.

Thank you!
