    The shoes will be back, as will some of my jewellery and my belt.

    Yay, so nice that you can go back to your venue again, also can't believe you are about to celebrate your second anniversary it doesn't seem that long ago that you got married!

    I know! It's scary!

    It also means the couple that got together at our wedding have been together two years too!!!

    (Is it bad that I'm planning wedding outfits and they're not even engaged) ;)

    You should track inch loss as well as weight - if you're working out you'll add muscle tone, which adds weight. I've not lost as much weight as I wanted (or think I deserve! lol ) but am definitely slimmer and more toned.

    My anniversary diet is, so far, on track.
    I've been realistic with it which means I need to lose a pound a week.
    The main obstacle at the mo is a lack of money.
    I'm going to try my dress on every weekend as an incentive.
    When I get paid, I'm also going to have the hair clip from my wedding turned into a brooch.
    Six weeks to go!

    My diet is coming on nicely. In that it is piling on the pounds without me even trying. SOB. I have to eat sooo little to lose weight. I can't tolerate thyroxine so am stuck and it is horrible.

    Pound a week is very achievable, so will keep you focused. I've had a very naughty weekend foodwise (lunch out twice, dinner out 3 times, massive dominos pizza etc etc) but seem to be back in the game now. Gym after a 9.5 hour shift of boringness might be pushing it though!

    Well done FB and doing it that way should help keep it off too!

    I need to get back to the gym, had a physio appt today and things are starting to loosen off - bad news is I am likely to be stuck with pain forever although when i get pain it will be causing no damage - this is apparently due to years of pain meaning the nerves are super sensitive! :( getting things muscle wise to how they should be then he wants me to see someone else to check there is nothing doing damage/causing pain so fingers crossed.

    Sorry to hear that - sounds like you're in the hands of someone who has a plan in place to help you though, which is often half the battle.

    Yeah I finally seem to have someone who knows what they are on about - as for pain management i have a plan i'm on already that we are/were hoping to get me off! Not looking too likely now but we have lowered it slightly, so will see how it goes.

    I hit my target weight this morning with a week to go until my anniversary. Unfortunately, it's only because I had a bit too much to drink last night!

    I am!

    The last year has been horrendous in so many ways, it will be great for Russ and I to spoil ourselves for once.

    Mrs B, on Monday, Russ and I are going back to our venue for the night.

    We won a competition on facebook for dinner, bed and breakfast, and we've paid for an upgrade so that we can stay in the suite I got ready in on the day.

    We did the same thing last year and had a great time.

    Today, I'm going to book afternoon tea for when we arrive.

    Did I mention by the way that i'm trying not to have any fizzy drinks this week?

    I've always been a bit paranoid about my tummy, so I'm seeing if this makes any difference.
