Day 140 - Monday 19th May


My number one dream at the moment is a totally to do with me and so is slightly selfish. All my other dreams are still there waiting to come true.
My main dream is to lose weight and to get down to 9 stone. I cannot remember the last time I weighed 9 stone probably when I was is my early teen years as I have always been plump. When I met James 10 years ago I was a size 18 and must have weighed about 12 and a half stone. When my mum and step dad split up after 20 years, I lost quite a bit if weight and got down to a size 14 and about 10 ½ stone.
Just before we get married I got down to just under 10stone but this soon crept up after the wedding. Since having ZoĆ« I have more or less remained around the 10 stone 10lb mark. On the 4th of April I decided that my eating was getting out of hand and there was a real risk that I was going to pile on the pounds again. So I decided to stop eating all the junk and to eat much more healthily and get some exercise – hence the purchase of the Wii and the Wii Fit.
I weighed myself this morning and I was 10 stone 1 lb, so pretty chuffed with that. I was slightly less last week but I think this was due to me being poorly. I have bought some new size 14 clothes and they fit really well and if anything are a bit baggy so I have definitely slimmed down in shape. I don’t know if I will reach my target of 9 stone but I will give it a try.

So watch this space...

You're doing great Claire, just lose the weight slowly! And you're not being selfish at all, a healthy happy mum and wife are of more benefit to your DH and Zoe!

Claire how strange that my journalling is about my weight loss but different weights to you:)
I dream of being once again what I was at college age 19/20 which was size 14 weight 10/11st:) I am size 20 (was 22!!) this week and today bought a size 18 blouse which fits so have gone down over a dress size down already. Think I may change my photo and 'scraplift' your photo idea but put 11.0 on the scales :).may I?
