I'm a loser.....

....but not in a horrible way! I have (for the first time in around 10 years) managed to stick to a diet! No mean feat I can tell you. I've joined WeightWatchers, and although I was a bit skeptical about their new ProPoints system (I've done WW many times in the past!) I have to say this time round I'm finding it much easier to stick to. So far I've lost 10 pounds (in 5 weeks). Shock horror I even managed to lose 2lbs over the Easter festivities. Hopefully, I'll be able to stick to it. I've taken "before" photo's of my very large rear end straining at the seams in a pair of stretch jeans, and when I hit my target weight I will post "before and after" pictures on line for the whole world to see! How's that for a challenge!? Wish me luck peeps!


  1. Congratulations on the 10lbs Caroline, that's fab!

  2. Wohoo! that is all kinds of awesome and I am very jealous of your will power. I'm desperate to lose weight but just can't seem to get my act together at the moment :(

  3. Thanks Scarlet.

    Rachael - it is soooo hard - I've just come back from shopping and the temptation to buy cr*p is unbelievable I can tell you. Caroline x

  4. Congrats Caroline! Lots of luck! I always notice the advertising for bad food more when I first go on a diet. It's amazing how much of it there is.

  5. Thanks Lacey! Yes *bad* food....not good. Caroline x

  6. Congratulations, Caroline - that's brilliant!

  7. I'm very envious - I don't seem to have the willpower at the moment especially with all the Easter chocolate lying around! Really well done :o)

  8. Thanks Teresa and Karen. It is sooo hard tho'..Caroline x

  9. Thanks Jackie. ;o) Caroline x

  10. Oh Caroline

    I am soooo impressed!
    Well done to you. How great that you can see that weight loss and difference and be able to pat yourself on the back. I was always a real smug skinny until a couple of years ago but all of a sudden, I have love handles and a rounded tum, and I don't feel quite as confident as I did...

    Weight loss is the next of my challenges. And somehow I don't think it will be anywhere near as straightforward as some of the writing challenges I've had lately.

    On that subject I just wanted to say thank you for all your words of encouragement on my blog. I can't tell you how much your little comments have meant, and spurred me on!

    It's funny how you find people. And I'm glad I found you.

    Bye for now


  11. Ohhh thanks BSM (Debbie) I've got a big grin on my face. I think your blog is fab - and you are a very good writer IMHO. Caroline x

    Thanks Suzanne - another of my bessie blog mates! Caroline x

  12. Congratulations Caroline, It is indeed a great achievement. It is hard to lose weight. I never had the problem until a few months ago I gained a few kilos... wow it's tough trying to get rid of it. lol..
    All the best with your future weightloss goal... :)

  13. Thanks Suzanne. Caroline x
