Prayer Request

I'm trying to make a few decisions jobwise at the moment and would appreciate your prayers. I just wrote a whole post over at OWOA so I'm not going to write it all out here too, but if you'd go over there and take a look that'd be fantastic.
It's here
Thanks muchly :-)

The sun'll come out tomorrow, bet ya bottom dollar

Still tired. Still not feeling 100%. So glad that the weekend has arrived.
Now I'm off to bed :-)
Will try to post something proper soon.... maybe....

Oh, and guess what I saw at the supermarket the other day?
HOT CROSS BUNS! In December! (This is not them, but a picture that I took last Easter when I was blogging my weekend in pictures over on my other blog)

I am just too tired and there's all this stuff buzzing round in my head. I've got some stuff I want to post at some point, but I need to try and figure it out in my head a bit more before I put fingers to keyboard. In the meantime I just can't seem to stop feeling tired and and bit down. I'm trying so hard to keep 'up' (in my mindset, and physically out of bed) but it's really hard right now.

So I'm off to bed now (it's 7.45pm!) and hopefully it'll all look better in the morning. Night all

Monday, Monday, so good to me

Well, a bit good anyway. I'm down to 279 for today's weigh in. So grand total of 15 pounds lost :-)
In other news I'm feeling ill - nasty cold thing which is getting me down a bit, but hopefully with lots of sleep and lots of water to drink I'll be soon be feeling better.

I was told I was beautiful today. By a complete stranger. In fact a guy trying to chat me up. Really quite a bizarre experience actually. I don't think he was actually drunk, but he was holding a beer bottle in his hand. And yet, it still felt good. It was something that somewhere inside of me I needed to hear, and God knew that, and it happened. And then I had a really long conversation with the guy about God and church and stuff like that - well having turned the guy down, I at least owed it to him to show him my desire that he (along with all non-Christians) could be saved.

But still, someone told me I was beautiful. I'm not sure I feel in yet myself when I look at my outside - I've lost a stone, but there's still a long way to go. But hey, you know what, I am beautiful :-)

Another Monday weigh-in (and there's many more to come!)

Well I'm done 2.6 pounds this week. That takes me to 280.4 and almost at my short term goal which was to lose a stone (14 pounds) by Christmas. I shall have to have a think about what my next short term goal will be. Happy Happy Joy Joy :-)

The week thus far

Another week is almost ended. Time to evaluate how it went, and especially with regards to the team challenge with the OWOA ladies. Well this week I went swimming with my Mum on Tuesday and we both swam half a mile. That's 32 lengths of the pool we use, and takes around half an hour. My favourite stroke is back stroke, but I was remembering my swimming lessons from when I was little and also did some breast stroke and also some front crawl this week.

On Wednesday I was at home for the day (because 16 month old that I usually look after was away on hoilday. I saw them at church this morning and he's added a new phrase to his repertoire - "oh dear", to add to his other favourite "hello"). I spent lots of the day with the radio on loud dancing, skipping and jumping my way around the house - tidying up and generally sorting things out.

On Saturday morning my Mum and I went for a walk around Forty Hall Estate and had fun spotting friends of our garden weekend visitor (see my other blog if that doesn't make sense!)

I can also report that I have drunk plenty of water this week, over 80 oz each day, and have reported in to my team leader Tami accordingly.

Pictures of me

I really don't like these (although they aren't as bad as some I looked at!), but as a mtter of recording what I was like, and so I can look back and see how I've changed, I've gone through the photos on the computer and found a couple to share...
(The full length one is me and my skinny little sister, HP)

Drum Roll Please

Well, this morning I am down 4.4 bringing total weight loss to 11 pounds. So I'm now at 283 pounds. I think all those numbers add up - I'm at 283 anyway, so you can figure out the rest. I'm too tired!

Team Competition

The lastest thing over at One Weigh or Another is a Team Competion. I'm in a team with Tami (our group leader), Lady Laura, Maria and Stephanie. (Hopefully I just managed to link the right name with the right blog. I'm planning to add them to my side bar soon anyway)

The first thing we need to do is come up with a group name. I've just been mucking around with our initials and come up with a few random ideas, but I totally wouldn't blame the rest of my team if my ideas get shouted down and someone else comes up with something better!

The week we'll be getting points based on weight loss and number of times we've exercised this week. I've done exercise on 4 days and you'll be able to find out my weight loss tomorrow - I'll be posting it here and over on OWOA.
I'll keep you up to date on our team progress as well :-)
