Weigh in Wednesday

I Lost 3 pounds and to say I am pleased is an understatement!!
I am delighted, Back to Basics worked even better than I thought.
So Back to Basics is definately my mantra for the coming weeks and months.
Now if I could get 3 pounds a week I could get my 60 x 60
by my birthday and that would be AWESOME.
That would be the Best Birthday Present EVER.

Today I am grateful for:
Measuring Cups.
Food Scales.

Mood = Elated
Food  = Fab

PS.  Dawne asked why no Canada?
We were planning on visiting friends of Ralph's in Halifax, Nova Scotia in April. But we had an email at the weekend, it seems their dream has not materialised. They are coming back to the UK, as soon as their house is sold.  I find it very sad, it is a disappointment for us, but it was just a holiday for us.  This was their new start in the dream location and it has floundered.  I don't know the details of what went wrong, Gavin is going to contact Ralph for a talk soon, so we will know more then. So my birthday holiday plan's are being re-vamped, lots ideas but nothing concrete as yet.

So sorry about your plans. My guess is that Ralph will come up with a lovely alternative trip for you! AND, wonderful loss! 3# is a delightful beginning on your "Back to Basics" journey. Bravo!!

Wow! Congrats on the 3 pound loss!
And on the well deserved award.
Sorry about the plans not panning out for you. Hopefully a fabulous alternative can be pulled together for in time.:-)

I knew you were going to have a great weigh-in! A big congrats to you for sticking with it and hanging in there. Doing the right things, even when we don't feel like it, always produces wonderful results. I have to keep reminding myself that weigh day comes around every week, without feel. So even if I want to throw it all away on a Monday, I know Friday morning is just around the corner. I'm hoping for a better week next week, because the last couple sure have sucked, lol. Amen for getting back to basics. :)

That is absolutely fantastic Sheilagh. Well done you. Sorry to hear about the Canada plans though. Hope Ralph manages to sort something else out equally as exciting....

I think I need to take a leaf out of your book and go back to basics... thats the only thing thats going to work for me I think. Well done again x
