No, it's not easy Matty. Even when you think you've cracked it, a few 'naughties' and the weight's going up again. 

Love your diets FG.  I used to do terrible things when I was younger.  Tesco's used to sell huge shortbread biscuits, 6 in a pack.  Well, my family never saw them.  I would stick the kettle on, get the bics out and, before I knew it, they were gone.  Felt guilty, but - too late. 

After seeing a photo of myself at my largest, I asked why nobody had said anything about it.  They just said they hadn't noticed.  Twas a lot not to notice. 

We all lose strength as we get older don't we Dove.  Just life, I'm afraid.  I too get very annoyed when I have to rely on son to do things that I once could easily do myself. 

Did you like my photo FG?  Good likeness as to how I'm feeling at the moment.  The dreaded time is fast approaching.

It is a beetle that causes it FG.  It has had it's way with my plant quite rapidly.  Was fine a few days ago.  Now moth eaten.  I'm sure His Highness will tell me what I should do.  Politely, I hope.

Know I should ask question on thread but..........have just noticed that my Viburnum has been all chewed up.   Know its some beetle and they've done their worst and there's not much point spraying, but what should I do now?  Do I just leave it?  If i cut it all out, I will have no plant left.

That's terrible Dove. How insensitive. It has never ceased to amaze me how people think they can make such comments.  Do they think we have no feelings. Pity he wasn't sacked.

Wow, that's a huge weight loss Dove and well done you.  Hard work isn't it.  I lost 4 stone 9 years ago at SW. Never been slim and, whether or not anyone agrees with me, I think there are times when it's in your genes. That's just my opinion!!! It's so easy for people to say, it's what you put in your mouth. Yes, it is, but for some of us, that treat puts on weight, whereas for others it has no effect whatsoever.  Some folk who have never had a weight problem have no understanding how difficult it is.

So there!!

Son has levelled the earth at the end and put 19 bags of rubble in front garden, ready for collection.  So I'm getting there.  Am wondering whether the 'travellers' would take it.  We'll see.

Verd, I am not fasting because I want to.  It's going to be a long day.  I'll have something even more exciting to do later on! Got to go in hospital tomorrow for a little exploratory thingy.  Just hope I'm not last on the list like I was last time.  I think they take one look at me and think, 'oh, she looks like she wouldn't mind waiting', and promptly put my notes to the bottom of the pile.

Have told tthem upstairs that if I can't eat, neither can they, unless they get it themselves.

Dove, don't know how you do it. My day is governed by meal times and little snacks. Not that I overdo it these days because my stupid digestive system won't let me.  I'm one of those who live to eat, not eat to live.

When I have the problem of having a cold and not being able to taste anything, I keep trying different foods so that I know when I'm better.

Morning everyone. Still got everything crossed for WW.  Getting a bit awkward now.

I'm sure that many of you will think me odd but I have never returned to where my parents and son are.  I find it too upsetting. I think of them every day and only have to walk round my garden to be reminded of them as certain plants I associate with each of them. 

Well, I've had my brekkie FG. Toast today. Have a day of fasting ahead of me, so if the other members of this household want to eat, they know where the kitchen is.

Had my heating on today Frank. Got to keep warm. I've had torrential rain today too.  Have to say it was much needed.

Enjoy your tipple and hope you are seeing the family tomorrow.

I think we've forgotten this the 'rant' thread.

Frank I actually thought she looked like one today. Ouch, that was bitchy.

Frank, I wouldn't argue with you.

What is it about these offspring that they have to compete, in a friendly way.  I'm always being told that middle child is my favourite.  I go along with it now and so does he, so when we are altogether we really play up to it, while the other two look at each other with the 'see what I mean' face.

Gilly, I've only just spotted your post about dressing up box. Very apt remark.  He looked a right plonker and as for Princess Anne, why does she dress like a man?  Mmm.
