Street party

Lose to win – Week 19

It’s been a busy week.  With getting everything sorted for the Street Party

bringing my son home from University for the summer and a busy week at work dieting wasn’t really my top priority and was often at the back of my mind.  I’ve had a few minor blips but in the whole I think I’ve managed to be good.

So as I went through to get weighed this morning I was hopeful, though not particularly confident.  And the result is……..

12st 4

I’ve lost another pound and have now lost all the weight I put on a couple of weeks back.  But what it is showing me is that the old myth that the final half stone is the hardest to lose is actually true.

Anyway it’s another £1 for the Charlie Cookson Foundation, hopefully the first of many this week, and another step on the way to reaching my goal of 2 stone by my birthday in August.

If you’re impressed with my success you can add to my £’s for pounds at or to donate by phone text FIFB50 £1 to 70070

And don’t forget if about the Street Party.  Everyone’s welcome and all the money raised will go to the Charlie Cookson Foundation.  You can find out more or let me know you’ll be coming here.
