Happy New Year.....

Well I have decided to go for the Blog your year 365 style, my friend Claire has completed 2008 and her blog is fab so I am waiting for Anna Bowkis to show us what to do this year and until then I will continue to show you my cards, add pictures of my family and basically just be me...

I would like to wish everyone who visits my site regularly or just happens to stumble across it a very happy and prosperous new year and good health for the future. 

My first New Years Resolution......

I am determined to get to my goal weight this year which is under 11 stone. I am 5 foot 8inches tall so that's a good weight for me, but having struggled with my weight my whole life I finally need to do it before I am 40 in May.  Here is a photo of my weight on the scales and a picture of me at my heaviest at 18 stone before I had my gastric band fitted. Lets see if I can do it this year...

  2. Thank you so much...I need to focus and you are right, think of that amazing dress I can make him buy me !!!!

  3. Come on Jo you can do it!!! Just stick at it and you feel so much better for it.

  4. You look so wonderful!!! You CAN do it! Just take it one day at a time. Forgive yourself when you cheat. Drink lot of water, eat plenty of fiber rich foods and veggies. Go for walks (while shopping :) Give it time, it comes off much slower then it goes on.
    Most importantly... you are a beautiful girl, inside and out!!!
