Right, time to get my arse in to gear

I've been pretty bad recently, sort of holding at the same weight but not loosing anything at all. I've had some kind of epiphany this week, after gaining 3 pounds over the weekend (think that salt was to blame as much as anything) I realised that it's time to get on with it. So this week I'm joining a new gym as my old membership has ran out. This week I'm not buying any chocolate, this week I'm following the bandster rules. From now on I'm going to blog, I need the accountability.

Weight today is 14st 7lbs, a day of being good has got rid of the excess.

Just stole this from another blog, thought that it could be a good reintroduction

  1. Welcome back to the land of blogging. If you ever want leek and potato soup w/o all the work, try the Waitrose soup. I like it more than I expected, and the calories aren't bad!

  2. Welcome back! Hope the new gym helps to shift those pounds! I love the A-Z. I might steal it myself!

  3. Welcome back! Keep blogging...it helps.

  4. I always miss you when you vanish!! Funny thing is when you come to mind you end up blogging the very next day!!
