I'm so dumb - having made the decision to sign up (finally), it never occurred to me to check my cagg e-mail to look for my invite! I was starting to feel like a right Billy No Mates... duh! (Rachel, would you mind forwarding my usual e-mail to GW? Thanks! :-))

I weighed in on Friday at 67.9kg, with a BMI of 28.9 (yeah, I'm short) and set my mind to get serious about this weight loss thing. I know I can do this, I've done it before...

I used to be skinny. Really skinny. Then I had baby no. 1, who was followed by severe PND, and before I knew it I was a roly poly (my grandad's words) and not happy about it at all. I joined Weight Watchers and lost 49lbs - woo hoo! Skinny once again, albeit with a flummy tummy having had 2 babies via c/s. I swore I wouldn't get fat again, but... And now, having had another c/s baby, I get the feeling that my jelly belly is only ever going to disappear if I go under the knife, but that's a little scary (and expensive, let's face it - although I have already picked out a very nice private surgeon in Thailand!) so I'm here to see if I can avoid that drastic measure. But hey, if I lose the weight but am still wobbly by the time I turn 40, swanky clinic here I come!

So. Salads, water, fibre and exercise. And the odd treat :-) Ganbarou!

  4. Sorry anchan!! It didn't occur to me to try and find any other one than the email from your blog profile. Gomen. I was wondering why you hadn't accepted the invitation yet. Glad you're on board now though!

    I've had a shit couple of days and sometimes going under the knife in Thailand followed by cocktail holiday sounds fabulous.....

  10. Yay! Welcome Anchan! Do share the info on that swanky Thai clinic! As I'm already pushing 40, that knife is looking pretty fab right about now! I've already decided that if I lose 50 lbs, I'm getting new boobs! Woo hoo!

    Good luck, hope you have a great week!
