Well guys, I'm back from Daylesford and I had an amazing time! I successfully ignored every one of Mum's comments about how all the water would leave the spa if I got in, and how much I eat, and focused on making the most of the break. I was really proud of myself actually - I couldn't resist the handmade choccies - but I only bought ONE - omg how did I choose????
Actually, as a bit of irony, we went into a bakery one afternoon to get ourselves a treat - we were after all on holiday - and Mum bought herself FOUR cakes - saying she'd share them with me (I didn't want them) I bought one cake for the late afternoon sugar craving, ate half of it that afternoon and when I finally sucumbed and went to go back for the rest discovered that Mum had eaten it, and all the other treats in the box - so she actually did me a favour.
On the way home today she finally realised that she has a weigh in at her Fernwood Biggest Loser challenge, and that the pancake with mascarpone, maples syrup and strawberries was probably a bad choice. I however was able to pat myself on the back for making largely good choices. It actually helped, because I kind of saw that Mum wasn't really picking on me - she was just saying to me what she wanted (and perhaps needed) to say to herself.
Had the BEST massage and facial WOW!! Folks - you gotts get there! (Ask for Alex at the Hepburn Spa he's amazing! A masseur and a mechanic - is that an oxymoron??
Thanks guys for all your support - sorry I haven't fixed my ticker, but for those of you who want to know my current weight is at 130.8kgs.
