Thank you for stopping by to perv on my blog, as I fight myself to change my old habits and make new ones to get fit. I don't get it right all the time, but I'm still here and I'm still working at it.

Tamzins Double Dog Dare You Ticker!

My homage to the 14lbs that I lost on Allan’s DDDY Challenges. A watering can for the vast oceans of water that I have learned to drink and love every day.

From Wallowing to Basking & a WI

Thank you to all who commented today. Everyone was totally right, and I guess, sometime you just need to hear it a couple of times to remind yourself that things are not the deep hole that you think they are.

I thank you, and all the people who posted on their blogs today as well. I love reading them, they really help put life and weight into perspective. So I've gone from wallowing in my own pity to basking in the knowledge that today was a new day and yesterdays mistakes don't have to be made today.

So - now for the nitty-gritty. weight is up 0.6lbs, but I'm down 1.3inches.

Pounds - 276

Inches - 324.5

Neck -16.1, Bust - 47.2, Ribcage - 42, Waist - 48, Hips - 52.8, Thigh (L) - 27, Thigh (R) - 26.1, Calf (L) - 18.8, Calf (R) - 18.1, Bicep (L) - 14.2, Bicep (R) - 14.2

Im always about the inches as, when I was a trainer, Id immediately get my clients weight training (which would make em tighter and smaller but not necessarily immediately lighter).
