I did weigh in

Weeeellll, I was there on Friday to pick up some more sachets so I figured I may as well.
26th February 2010
Weight = 107.7kg,
a loss of 700grams.
I think I like fortnightly weigh-ins better as 700grams is disappointing.
Waist = 109cm.
a loss of 2cm
which surprised me
and pleased me.

Directional drowning

Started swimming yesterday
more like directional drowning!
only managed a half a lap without stopping to start with but stayed in the pool for an hour walking and sort-of swimming the whole time.

Same thing today but managed two laps without stopping at one point there.
It makes me very tired and I have to have a 'nap' before I go to work in the afternoon.
Next week I'm on morning shift so will have to work out the swim for the afternoon.
Not getting on the scales this week. Will leave it and go at the end of the fortnight.
New issue work pants are too big! They gather when I put my belt on.
Don't think I have ever had that happen in my life before!

10kg down

incase you didn't notice, 
I have passed my first goal which was to loose 10kg. 
Now the next one is to get under 100kg.

Check out the graph.

Looking good!

Check out this artist.


While I was in Melbourne to see the Cliff Richards Concert, I took my sister Liz along to the SCQuilty Tarts meeting at Glan Waverley. It was nice to meet some more SCQuilters. That's Liz, left foreground. She fits in nicely, doesn't she?

Another Weigh In Today

Went for another weigh in this morning and I have only lost 900 grams this past week. That's a bit disappointing as I have been sticking to the program to the letter. But I guess a loss no matter how little is still better than a gain.
My Bestest Friend who has a lap-band and has lost a lot of weight gave me a top that is too big for her yesterday. It's a size 20 and it fits! It is a rather volumous style tho, draw string peasent neck line. But I am really thrilled and wore it for my check in today. I can't remember the last time I was given a hand-me-down. Must be way back before I was a teenager. It's a rather nice feeling.
I'm in the process of thinking about how to set up a 'network' of weight loosers so we can pass our clothes on as we get too small for them to the others who are not so far along in their weight loss..
My sis in NZ has gone from a size 28-30 to a size 20. Isn't that wonderful.! She's on a totally different type of programe to me. I want her to coach me! I'm looking forward to some of her hand-me-downs too.

No photos tonight. Too tired.

Hey, looks like I may have found out why I am so tired all the time, (and have been for years and years and years).
Seems I have a slower than normal heart beat and it looks like I may have a liver disease too. I have been telling doctors the same old symptoms over and over for years and finally one has come up with something. And he did it before i told him they symptoms too. He noticed the sores and all the scars from the scratching i do (witout thinking and in my sleep) and asked me about them. Told him I had done it for as long as I can remember. So, after a few more questions and answers, he sent me off for an ECG there and then, the results of which are a slow heartbeat and I'm off to a specialist soon. He also had a heap of bloodtests done and indications are my liver is on the blink.
See, I have been telling them for years something is not right! I was going to have Rod put on my tombstone, "See I told you I was crook!" Apparently Spike Milligan has something like that on his.

I got this message thru one of the internet quilting groups I belong to. It’s been checked out thru and is not a hoax.
Please tell ten friends to tell ten today! The Breast Cancer site is having
trouble getting enough people to click on their site daily to meet their quota
of donating at least one free mammogram a day to an underprivileged woman.. It
takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on 'donating a mammogram'
for free (pink window in the middle). 
This doesn't cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the
number of daily visits to donate mammogram in exchange for advertising. 
Here's the web site! Pass it along to people you know.
  Thank you to all

Curbing and guttering has gone in. These guys were the most organised and efficient team of road workers I have ever seen. They put it together like a ballet. Most of the curbing was done on Monday 1st Feb and they began dumping the gravel on the road in preparation for sealing this morning. Truck after truck, all double loaded, have been dumping. Rod and I have been scoring the drivers ability out of 10 as they come and go. I half expect them to ask for a copy of the photos. I don’t think any other road works in Bathurst have been so closely followed in photos. What I’m showing here on the blog is only a few of the heaps we have taken.
