Weight:-  7.30 am  - ?

My last weight check was 114 kg/251 lbs. Next check Jan. 31st.

Tomorrow.... I had a sneak preview of my weight. Now I'm doubting my start weight. All will be revealed tomorrow.

I am able to continue my plan. Mum's death is not changing this. We are all sad. It's a new era. I've never known life without my mother. It feels strange.

I thought I had a quiet morning at home but Jane has asked me to be with them when Mum's body returns so must finish my breakfast and hit the road.

Breakfast:-  Berry Smoothie. Strawberry tea. water

Snack 1:-  Strawberry tea. 

Lunch:-  Strawberry  tea. cheese and gherkins, 3 fruit jellies

Snack 2:-   Strawberry tea, 2 fruit jellies

Dinner:-  fish pie and salad
Strawberry tea

Snack 3:-  Camomile tea.  4 corn thins, butter, cherry tomatoes. 

Drinking:-  Water x 2
Strawberry and Mango Tea, etc x 1 + ?
Coffee, black, unsweetened x 0

Diet lemon, lime & bitters x 0

Daily Goal:-  1.5 lt. or 5 - 6 large cups *y/n*

Exercise:-  15 minutes walk *yes* It's getting a little easier. The wheeze has gone but I think that's more to do with not eating wheat. Today I walked without pause except for one photo stop and felt quite good when I got home again. I extended my walk and can say with certainty I walked 3000 steps which for me at the moment is working out to about 1.3 km/0.8 miles. Not flash but considering how I started  and it's only been a week,not bad.

5 minutes cross-trainer *no*

Reporting Back ..........

How I did I do?

Still wheat and coffee free. Very tired. Too much time on phone.


  1. So.... it your weight lower that you thought it would be? It should be, you've been eating very well. It will be a whole new world, living without your mother - I'm glad you are carrying on with your good eating though :)

  2. It was such a blessing your Mum did not linger on.... and had such a peaceful passing with all of you around her.
    Lovely talking with you today Anne... I know that tomorrow (Wednesday) will be difficult but knowing your Mum had a good life and no drawn out pain is comforting.
    I will always remember her for her swims at Simplson's Beach ... we saw her every summer for years and years and would often say hello.... she never forgot us either!
    I think that was because we had SO MANY children! lol
