Update 1

Last Monday I went down to my local chemist and stepped on their digital scales, gasped in horror and noted down the results.
It was an okay week, largely helped by the glorious weather which we have been having that made me want to eat greek salads, pitta breads, hummus and plenty of fresh fruit. Friday night we went out to the pictures and then for an Indian meal and seeing as how it was our first night out together since November 2006 I enjoyed myself, a nice lamb and aubergine curry , although a bit hot was lovely.

I took note of all the hints and tips which were gratefully recieved, used a smaller plate, plenty of walking as exercise and tried not to be too hard on myself.
Today I went back to those same scales and YEAH 3 lbs/ 1.36 kgs lost. This week Hub is on lates which makes it easier to do my meals as I'm only doing 1 meal instead of 2. So fingers crossed for another good week.

Random picture of Cyprus where we normally are at this time of year! I've got a bit of the Cyprus blues at the minute



Lina also tagged me for my quirks , this was quite hard
1) Since being pregnant with Milo I can't bear to have anything around my wrists so don't wear a watch or bracelets.
2) I don't drink tea or coffee , apart from not liking the taste I really can't get my head around the concept of putting boiling hot liquid in your mouth!
3) I don't particularly like milk either and only have a tiny bit on cereal
4) Given the choice of a black ink pen or blue ink I will choose blue every time
5) I would rather turn up half an hour early than be a few minutes late
That's all I can think of I'm afraid - if anyone wants to do this Tag then please feel free

Baby G hasn't had his pic posted for a while - as you can see he's growing rapidly and is already in 12 - 18 months clothes. I think he's going to be a bit of a bruiser.

Lisa - congratulations on your first week!!!! That's an awesome loss!! I did the same this week... 1.2kgs (close!). I've got to feel just a little jealous... Cyprus... if we go on holidays... it's always in the same country that we live in... never overseas!! Europeans have it so lucky to have so many different countries right there at their fingertips. I wish!

I am glad to hear that someone else doesn't like milk and only slightly moistens their cereal with it! My husband thinks I am weird...

Kitty said...

Oh congratulations - that's quite a lot in one week!

Baby G is adorable - my two were both bruisers too.

Hey that's great - well done! Cute pics of baby too xx

Adrienne said...

G is adorable! I love the cheeks. Henry just adores his post card - you were so sweet to send him as one as well. Milo did a great job of signing his name!

3lbs is great! Good job!

LOUISE said...

Well done Lisa, what a great start to your diet. Don't worry about having a curry occasionally, if you don't have any treats you will give up. I am always early for everything too, although I do drink too much tea and coffee. Nice to see cute little Baby G! x

I think we might have been separated at birth ;-) I don't drink tea or coffee either (yuck) and I don't like milk (I've started eating ceral with low fat yogurt - much nicer and more filling than milk - in my strange opinion) AND if I'm late I totally loose it - so I'm always the first one there! Congrats on the 3lbs

Wow Baby G is a cutie pie. Well done on the weight loss. You've inspired me, I MUST lose some weight, I'm going to have to start wearing Hattie Jacques style frocks soon, I just love cake too much. Note to self - stop eating, start moving :)

silverpebble said...

Well done on the 3lb, especially with the temptation of extra naan bread and lovely creamy curry - Indians are are one of my vices.

Your little lad is lovely - excellent rosy cheeks.

Kellie said...

I just love G! I must find a picture of Ben when he was this age ... also a bruiser!!!!! Well done with the weight! Sorry I haven't been over this past week I've been in 'get ready for Sydney' mode.
