Update 4

Well, 4 weeks gone already and it's July tomorrow, my mams birthday too. Happy Birthday mam,


July is such a busy month for birthdays!


Anyway I digress - 1lb lost this week so thats 4lb in total , on average 1lb a week. What is it they say if it comes off slow it stays off? Something like that anyhow. Two weeks left to go, lets see if I can make it to half a stone... now that would be good.

Last week I had the very good fortune to recieve more lovely goodies in the post from the lovely LizzieJane. She had a giveaway for her 75th post where a lady called Deborah won, unfortunately Deborah never came to claim her prize so it was re drawn and yours truly was the lucky winner.


The little mouse is just so cute and now takes pride of place on my bedside table , the chocolate is actually lavender chocolate and has the oddest taste but is absolutely gorgeous, as is the smell coming from the pear. You can't tell from the picture but the top of the cupcake is covered in little beads which must have taken a while to sew on, and of course fabric - need I say more. Thank you so much :-)

On Saturday it was Milo's Summer Fair at school, to be honest it wasn't the best of fairs but the one thing he did enjoy was this

Everyone I've known who has lost weight, has said it's much better to do it slowly - your body adjusts better, apparently. Well done on another pound - you'll get there!

Happy Birthday to your Mum!

Take care. x

What a lovely family you have! Congrats on the weight loss (though I don't suppose the lavender chocolate will help!) Wasn't that a fab giveaway?

LizzieJane said...

I am so glad that you enjoyed your giveaway prize, I will have to do another one soon,

What wonderful goodies you won Lisa! That mouse is the cutest thing. But not nearly as cute as your baby G. x

Slow but sure. If it's going off slwly then it's real weight loss and not just water. Good work so far. Lovely goodies from Lizziejane. Lavender chocolate must be quite exotic

That's a lovely giveaway. I have won one this week over on Suzie Sews, so we are both winners. Ooh, and a winner with the dieting, well done Lisa. I love Milo's special bunting and I wish your Mum a very happy birthday too. Funny but July is a quiet month for me. x

Happy Birthday to your Mum! Congratulations on the weight loss! How lucky are you? I think it is about time you post re. the ones you don't win! :) Have you desided what to do with the Michael Miller? I was thinking of a cool pattern that you might like to try last night! (when I wasn't sleeping!)
