Thanks Yogi and Misstoodles!
Nope, won't be letting myself go, don't you worry! I started losing weight well into our relationship and well before we got engaged so it had nothing to do with the wedding therefore hopefully the wedding won't change things! LOL

AND I just got the link to a photo book put together by our photographer who was a workmate of Allan's. Some good shots there, can't wait to get the originals!!

It's just a preview, but if anyone wants a squiz!

Thanks Bella! :wink:

Just wanted to pop in and say we watched Dukes of Hazard the other night. Hands up who loves Jessica Simpson's legs in that movie??? Not stick skinny, but toned and muscley. As of now, I'm gonna be doing lots and lots of thigh and butt exercises in the hopes of getting me a pair of daisy Dukes and maybe even looking good in them :shock:

Ok, so I've had a little wagon falling off of. Well, maybe not so little.

I'm back up to 80kg. :evil: No-one to blame but myself. I've slipped out of my good habits with being so busy recently and into bad old habits.

So, I'm back on here every day recording my food and exercise diary for all and sundry to see.

Saturday 12/4/08
8:00 - small noodle bowl of muesli.
10:30 - handfull fruit and nuts, 1 persimon and a banana
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).

Tegan who can blame you if put a little back on, your a newly wed!! :D Your probably too busy enjoying your new husband to worry about weightloss!! :D :D

The important thing is your nipping it in the bud now and getting back on track!

How is Nelson going??? Got any recent pics? Is he big enough to go for walks and that yet??

Nelson is fine...now. Not sure if I posted here, but he broke his toe the day before the wedding. Long story short, he wouldn't leave a cast alone and it got all sore and so it's off now. It's just healed over, so he's still supposed to be taking it easy, but we're easing back into some short walks.

Here he is in the first incarnation of his cast which has a plastic bag and sock on it so he can go outside for a wee. He hated it. Poor boy.

And if you'll excuse the state of the kitchen and me in my comfy, now very baggy dressing gown, :oops: here's one of him next to me to give you an idea of his bigness. He's pretty big for a 6 month old! He likes to sit behind you or just generally be in the way.

Image

And I sure do need to nip this thing in the bud,

so at 1:00 I had 2 sandwiches with leftover spaghetti sauce on em
about 2:30 went for a walk round the block with Nelson. I had a screaming headache today so I didn't feel up to much. Other than that I've done the shopping, cleaned the house and made some chutney with the millions of yellow pear tomatoes from the garden.

Due for dinner at about 7pm... I'm thinking... vege soup??? with some nice sourdough sprouted rye... yum

Oh yeah... And in case I haven't said it... if any of the people who joined while I was away are reading this, HELOOOOOO! :D

Welcome. You don't know me but I've been around this forum for far too long... kinda like institutionalised or something! Anyway, I'm sorry I didn't welcome you all personally - I've been rather busy with Uni and a puppy and a wedding, so please take this as your official welcome! Please feel free to talk to me... I'm friendly!
