Fresh start

Well, we've decided to make a go of it and are trying to recapture what we'd lost. Which is proving much better than I thought it would be. We've had some nice evenings out and we've got one weekend left before D goes back to the rig which is also our village's carnival weekend too.

Trouble is, my complacency about being control of my food and eating is under pressure. I'm still holding onto the 3 lbs loss at 13 stone 7 but feel some treat type eating creeping in and also failed to go swimming this lunchtime!

Not major problems but I'm watching myself like a hawk at the moment because I think that, when you're under pressure, it's easier to lapse. Still getting on the scales every morning though which is a plus.

In other news, I played golf on Wednesday morning. Played like a Goddess!! 8 under par and won the competition. While it's great to play so well, it also means that my handicap goes down by 2 shots. In theory that's great but it will make it harder to play to my handicap next time I play when not in Goddess mode!! Ach well, I did say at the start of the season that I was aiming to bring my handicap down to below 18 and it's now 19 but very close to 18....

Have a great weekend everyone!!

I am so pleased you and your hubby are working things out. It will be worth it in the end. You have different challenges to the majority of us due to his frequent absences, routine must be harder for you to achieve. I hope you get through this, don't be too hard on yourself & congrats on the great golf-it gives you a goal to achieve each time you play. Sometimes you will, sometimes you won't but as long as you gradually improve it's an achievement, (a bit like my weight loss really!) Keep your chin up, Milly x

Glad you're trying to work things out. These things have a habit of deciding themselves in the end anyway.

Hope things are settling down and you're feeling happier.

Well done on the golf. Tell me, is it obligatory to wear odd (as in peculiar) shoes for golf?

Wow!!! You've been very busy since I last visited. Love the photo in the header. You and your friends look just lovely.

Hope you and D continue to heal your relationship.
