Happy Birthday to me!!

A birthday landing on a weigh-in day.....hmmmm....wouldn't have been my first pick.  Anyway, I gingerly stepped on the scales to see.....

A small drop.

Only 0.4 lb this week.   Taking me to 14.9.0.

I'm not surprised.  Several (okay, 5) pints and 3 glasses of red wine were taken during our day out to Nottingham on Saturday.  Not to mention the steak and kidney pie, chips and peas!

I got straight back on the waggon yesterday with a lovely long walk in the sunshine and decent eating choices but I knew those pints were lurking, waiting to steal the drop of 1.2lbs I'd been sitting on most of the week.  But, who cares?!  It was my birthday weekend and I still managed a drop, however small it may be.

I'm still heading in the right direction and there is no thought of giving up.

THAT is my birthday present from the scales.

I will have to make lots of these choices over the coming weeks as we have a big night out planned for every Saturday between now and Christmas.  This means that my mid-week choices and exercise are going to become even more important.  I must not slacken off as, although I don't really care how much, I do want to keep dropping all the way up to Christmas. 

Today we're going dancing and then me and Rich are going to an award winning curry house for a meal afterwards.  Who says romance is dead....??  Not me.
