Winter has arrived

Its funny how when your waiting for somthing and it finally comes well yes its raining and the grass is greener and my plants are very happy....and the brown lawn now seems to be a distant memory....

Well another weigh in and I am now 93kgs thats a 1.2kg loss this week , Im very pleased to see the numbers getting lower week by week and I have not put on weight in 2 months now its so good to see and I now only have 18kgs to go until my goal weight of 75kgs.

I now have 1 week until i see Dr J Toouli and I cannot wait I really feel good about the weight loss and I really am confident now that I am going to be able to reach my goal weight....

The family all still have the flue and its not very nice , my main concern is Joel and Joshy they really are unsettled with it and it cant be nice for them, also Joel is talking more now and you can understand the words he says his favourite thing is " Oh dear" its so cute and " Tah" he is growing up so fast just wish i could have him this age a little longer.

I did buy myself a treat this week I bought a wacom drawing tablet i cant wait to use it , i want to color some of my illustrations in but i am worried if i take it out Joel will go nuts with it so atm im waiting....

Onto the measurements

Waist: 33.3 - 1.7 inchs lost
Hips: 40 - 1 inch lost
Chest: 36 - none gone again from there

Flu season hits

Its the flu season has hit the family its made things not so nice at home even Joel and Joshua has it and the doc says just give them panadole.... and even though Joshy is sick he still has a beautiful smile on his little face. And Poor Trent is very sick I at least am feeling not to bad apart from a annoying cough when I lay down.
well weigh in again and i have lost 600g not as good as last week but its still not to bad , I do know once a month i seem to retain water more and its around this time last month i lost only 400g so Im not surprised.
Well I spent some time drawing again and this little cherub is one of my latest cuties you can see more on my devianArt page, url is in the post below...
I now have 2 weeks until I see Dr Toouli again I think he will be happy with the weight lost since I saw him last.
Ok onto the measurements......
Waist: 35 Inchs 1 inch lost
Hips: 41 " " 1 " "
Chest: 36 Inchs nothings changed there ( yay LOL)

I bought some Jeans, black pants , a black top and a red cardigan which i just love the photo does not do it justice it is very slimming.... so woot for shopping and getting smaller.
