Did you have a lovely Easter? We didn't do much, Easter has never really been a big event in our family - we just tend to enjoy the long weekend and eat lots of chocolate. Of course H and W had Easter eggs for breakfast on Sunday as it is the law.
Mr G and I just shared the one egg. We are both on the wagon food-wise. I have been doing Weight Watchers for a month and have managed to lose just over half a stone which I am very happy with - particularly as we have every Saturday as a "day off". This way there is no need to feel deprived as if you fancy something "naughty" there is only a few days to wait and you can have it.
My biggest inspiration is my gorgeous husband - over the last 18mths he has lost about 6 stone:
The picture above was taken about a year into his weight loss - he bought these leathers to "slim into" and in the left hand picture could only just squeeze into them. The picture on the right was taken last week before he went for his very first ride wearing them.
I was meant to do it with him when he started all those months ago but I just couldn't get in the right headspace and spent the year bouncing 3lbs on and off again. However, my Mum's recent heart attack has spurred me on to Get On With It.
If I can lose 7lb per month like I did this month I would be more than happy. My ultimate goal would be to fit in a Cath Kidston dress - their biggest size is a 16 (I am currently a 22/24). I mentioned it to a dear friend and she has kindly offered to buy me a dress when I reach my goal and Mr G says he'll buy me another so that is a good goal to aim for!!
In other news, my BFF announced she is pregnant so naturally I dashed out to choose some yarn and started little cardi:
I also got some pretty woodland animal fabric from eBay:
I'm going to attempt a dress - I haven't made any clothes in ages because I became disheartened with the fact that I disliked the last couple of things I made - I hate spending all that time and effort only to put on the garment and find it makes one look like a ship in full sail!!
I'm going to make this fabric up using a pattern I've used before so hopefully I'll like the finished thing.
It's actually sunny here today!! Still cold though, I am hoping that this extra long winter means we are going to in for a lovely summer - but I shan't hold my breath!!
