Big smiles

 Thank you for all the lovely comments about my drawings, you're all very kind.  Special thanks to you Jill - praise from a real life very talented artist is amazing!  Any tips would be welcome!

On the dieting front, we're still going strong, it's become a way of life now and we're both feeling the benefits.  I'm very pleased to say that I've now lost a stone - can't see it in the mirror, although husband says my face looks slimmer.  I can definitely feel it though, my clothes are looser - in fact I've had to stop wearing a favourite pair of cropped jeans as they are now so loose they practically fall down.

I'm losing very slowly, at the rate of about half a pound a week, sometimes a whole pound, occasionally nothing but then a pound or 2 the following week.  Whilst it would be lovely to lose 5 or 6 pounds a week 😂, I know it ain't gonna happen and losing slowly means we have time to really adjust to the new eating way of life.

Not been on the exercise bike much recently as I've had loads of pain and stiffness in my hip and back, although it's easing off a bit now.  Didn't help that I ran out of my cbd oil, have stocked up again now so that's helped.  We're off to the beach with Betty and a picnic today, not been for 3 or 4 weeks partly due to my hip/back (walking on sand or rough terrain inflames my hip), but also because the little chalet park was full of tourists, so more people and dogs about.  Most of them will have gone home now.  It's cloudy at the mo, not cold at all though and is forecast to be sunny in a while.


  1. well done on the weight loss, it's not easy, I purchase myself a nice belt to hold up my trousers until I fitted into my smaller size.

  2. Well done on the weight loss. I agree, it would be lovely to get on the scales and find you've lost 6lbs, but that's a pipe dream! I'm s-l-o-w-l-y losing weight,and that's fine. At least I'm not starving myself, just watching what and how much I eat. I hope, as the weight drops off, your back and hip pain eases too. Enjoy the beach and picnic. I hope it's warm enough for you and not warm enough for the hordes! xx

  3. Great news on the weight loss !! Glad the effort is being shared.
    THE BEACH...too bad we can't all go with you.

  4. It is better for you and continued weight loss to do it slowly. Talented artist. Well. Just enjoy and the talented bit will follow!

  5. Well done Sooze. Slow and steady wins the race and every ounce is one less to lug around. I too am doing the slow and steady loss as is Tony. It's become a lifestyle change for us both and we haven't felt any hardship doing without junk food.

  6. Congratulations on the weight loss, slow and steady is the way to go. Hope you manage to get out for your walk.

  7. You're doing brilliantly well, I'm so proud of you.

  8. Well done on your weight loss, Sooze. It is far better to lose slowly but surely as far as I’m concerned. You’re doing brilliantly:)
