11 Stone 5 Pounds

April 12, 2009

I’ve been pretty lazy about keeping up this here record of my weight loss attempts. Sorry abut that, I’d like to say it wont happen again, it probably will though, so lets just leave it at that 🙂

So we got back from holiday without having ballooned out of control and I’ve been trying to be good since. As you can see, nothing much is moving, I’m now 11’5. I do feel thinner, like I’ve lost inches not weight, can that happen?

We got a Wii Fit in the week and have been having great fun with games and workouts on that. Maybe that will help get me moving, according to the trainer my ideal weight should be 10 Stone and a BMI of 22.

Check back soon(ish) for more updates 🙂

Easter Mission

April 10, 2009

Today, we went to Mexborough, my old home town. Which, although I wasnt stepping down from a train, did look just the same.

We were on a mission from the Easter bunny, delivering eggs in advance of the upcoming Sunday “thing”

I presented Nephew Joe with a beautiful Creme Egg and bless him, he smiled sweetly for a moment, then informed me he doesnt like Creme Eggs. Ever the resourceful Uncle, quick as a flash I delved into my bag and produced a Smarties egg originally destined for Nephew Owen.

Sadly, this egg cut no ice. Nephew Joe is 5 years old and a proper little man with a developed personality, he didnt hesitate to explain that he doesnt like Smarties.

“What do you like?”, I asked.

He replied, “chocolate, just chocolate”

“So what’s wrong with Smarties?”

“They’re to crispy”

“and Creme eggs?”

“Too sweet!”

“So what chocolate do you like?”

“Just chocolate.”

Luckily, my Mum had some mini dairy milk bars that I could substitute for the Creme Eggs.

So there you have it, a 5 year old that wont eat or drink anything sweeter than water or solid chocolate, who heard of such a thing?

But do you know, he is my Nephew and I love him!
