Great Advice THANK YOU

Thank you, Julia, Vraz60, Sunny, Friend of the Bear and Dawne, for great advice and encouragement.
I was asking for advice with tongue in cheek, knowing I would get the advice given.  I know it is an impossiblity to reach the 60 x 60 target now.  I now want to lose three stone by my birthday, that is 42 pounds and I have lost  34.5 of them so I think it is very doable.

I got an early birthday present form Ralph today, he has paid for a new gym membership for me and I go for my induction on Monday at 5:30pm.  I was a member of the gym over the way from us last year and was enjoying it until my back seized up in October. Now my back is behaving..shhshhh I was talking about stepping up my exercise this morning and my darling man suggested the gym near where I work. He said he would pay as part of my birthday present and within an hour I was all signed up:o)

It is a great set up with a huge Cardio gym, a separate Ladies Gym, a full floor of weight's and resistance machines and a dance/workout studio. They do Zumba and  I have been wanting to try that for ages, I met a very dear friend there while being shown round the facilities.  She was doing Body Combat and Cardio Pump one hour of each...She is very fit and certainly doesn't look 55.

So I will be stepping up the exercise, I will not be cutting my calories but I will be looking at how I am using them. I have a month of celebrations starting Thursday and will be out every weekend for meals with different groups of friends.  So I am going to have to be VERY GOOD during the

Again thank you for great advice and cheeky comments...Yes

Hi Sheilagh

Wow what a lovely man you have and what a great early birthday gift. Your very lucky. Im sorry I havent been around much to comment lately. Believe me, every single minute has been zapped up these last few weeks. Im exhausted and having to re-think what Im doing. I miss coming on here and catching up with you guys. Your all an inspiration and without my regular trips on here, I seem to be losing my way in the weight department :O( .... Ive just stolen a while on the computer whilst my girls are at their dads. But just wanted you to know that I think your doing great, and Im so glad I managed to catch up with you x x

34.5 loss is amazing darling and if you had set your target there you would have made it, you always push yourself. Bite size pieces is best if you will pardon the pun.
Look how many people you have inspired on that journey too. Missing you today- don't think I am going to get there either, sky is ominous love you loads see you 12th need double hugs then xxxxxxx
