Today I reached my one stone weight loss target with Slimming World. To celebrate, I treated myself to some lovely Freya lingerie from The Lingerie Room in Hoole. I’m learning to reward myself with gorgeous treats like this and not food! I went to get measured for the new bra and guess what – no change! I really thought I would have dropped a cup size, but no.
I really am very slow at losing weight, but I’m hoping that this slow steady approach will mean I can keep it off. I’m seeing it as a gradual re-education and a new way of eating for life.
In other news, we have a buyer for our house and have had an offer accepted on a bungalow. The new property is a bit of a renovation project, so I’m looking forward to having free rein with decoration. It needs a new bathroom and kitchen as well as central heating. We also plan to knock a wall down to make a bigger kitchen/diner. Yikes! Suffice to say, we will be getting professionals in for this!
As I have compromised on location (I wanted to go home to Wales, he wanted to stay close to his dad), Steve has agreed that all décor decisions are mine and has promised not to interfere. We’ll see!
Anyway, it’s early days for both sale and purchase. Absolutely anything could happen, so we are keeping an open mind on the new property until we have absolute confirmation. Luckily we are old enough and ugly enough not to get emotionally attached.
The next few weeks should prove to be eventful if nothing else.
