I've lost a turkey

According to our Christmas Day lunch hosts, we'll be tucking into a turkey that, avec le Paxo and an orange and apple up its bum, will be topping the scales at close on 25 pounds. So when I look at it next week, I will be face to face with what I have lost since 9 November. Yes, folks, another 3.5 pounds of flab shifted this week has taken me to a 25 pound total weight loss, which I am obviously quite chuffed with. Mind you, the hard work is only just beginning and I'll probably be switching to fortnightly weigh ins from now on. There is nothing worse than slogging your guts out all week only to find you've plateaued...much nicer to go a fortnight and be rewarded with 3 or 4 pounds off instead. Because it's a fact that the rate of loss is going to slow from here on in and I couldn't bear to be disappointed every Friday...might just have to sniff a Crunchie to cheer myself up and that's the fat end of the wedge...


P.S. I'm not sure I'm going to be able to keep my dinner down. It's doing a pretty good impression of a Force 10 outside the hatch and I'm feeling queasy...

Greygal, that's amazing, you must already be a shadow of your former self. Keep up the good work - your loss will be HUGE gain for greyhound charity.

ps. Blue lost 2kg in kennels and his ribs are sticking out alarmingly - you won't overdo it will you?

Well done Greygal! Twenty five pounds is a tremendous reduction and you will feel so much better for it. The Caxton crew salute you!!!

Thanks for your continued support, guys, it really is hugely appreciated. Going public and doing it for a brilliant cause was a good move but there's still a way to go so stick with me in 2009!
