.. that I had lost weight. It did kind of stop me in my tracks as I had been happily going about my business and dodging the mums' weight loss radar. I want to whip off my coat in the Spring and go "ta dah, I've happened to lose 4 stone over the winter months!" As I mentioned before in my blog I don't like people to notice when I lose weight as I tend to celebrate by eating so it really isn't helpful. I want to go undetected for as long as possible. Darn it. Having said this, I did not go out and buy myself a fresh cream cake or anything of that description, it did actually spur me on. What is going on?! I have done all my chores (minus ironing, making Xmas muffins - okay not quite) and am looking forward to getting on the Wii and completing about 4,000 sweat points shortly.
The mum in question is an acquaintance - a nod and a hello when passing - our eldest are in the same year. She is a very slim Italian woman and noticed my weight loss from behind!! She asked how many kilos but I couldn't quite remember the equasion is it 2.2lb to 1kg? She estimated 4kg (sold me a bit short but still) and said I was like her - in that the weight goes on her hips. Bless her I'm nothing like her but the thought was there. It is nearly Xmas after all!.
Onwards and downwards.
