Firstly, apologies for my tardiness/absence. Like many others every day life has got in the way lately.
New baby in the family - my latest great nephew Henry was born 23rd June. He's gorgeous but naturally I'm biased.
His big sister Isabelle (she was 2 in March) is adjusting to being a big sister. These are my nephew Matt's children with his fiancé.
I've been struggling with the intense heat lately - hasn't everyone though? I'm just relieved it's been a bit cooler here in Kent the last 2 days.
Some of the longer-term forum members may recall that in 2015 I joined Slimming World and you cheered me on all the way? I joined SW end of Aug 2015 and reached target the end of Dec 2016 having lost just over 5 stone. Since then, I've lost some more although I'm no longer going to class. I struggled on with my weight loss journey in 2016 despite 2 huge bereavements (losing my partner John and my Mum).
For weeks now I've been hovering over the 6 stone mark and each Friday morning when I weighed in here at home I either maintained, or put a 1-2 lbs on and then took it off. This went on for weeks. Well, yesterday morning I weighed in and got a lovely surprise. I've hit the 6 stone loss!
I'm delighted about this as losing weight is difficult enough, but I've been able to maintain that loss and lose a bit more.
So for anyone else on this Forum who is struggling to lose weight and can't exercise (my situation) just keep going. It's flaming hard work but life's like that isn't it? If I can do it, you can.
