LilySlim Weight loss tickers

And it all starts here.......


Well, here goes..........

I have started this blog as a way of documenting and sharing little snippits of my life as I move in to a new phase.

I am going to be home alone between 9am and 3pm  Monday to Friday for the first time in 8 years as my youngest child starts school. This makes me sad. I have really enjoyed being a stay at home  Mum and I know when Monday comes I will feel very lonely. I will probably have to put the kids TV channels on in the background for a while, just till I adjust, lol, such a sook I know!

But I do have plans..............

I'm hoping I will be able to pick up some part time work this year to help out with the finances a bit and I want to get fit and lose some weight. A new blogging friend of mine (Hi Tracey) has started a blog to document her weight loss efforts so I think I will play along with her. I will do a little weigh in and record my stats here for all to see and hopefully this will help me be accountable every day and help me stay on track.

So, we shall see how I go. I hope you will come along with me. Please leave me a comment to say you dropped by and I will come visit you and say hi.

  1. Good luck with the weight loss and the job search. I am sure it will be very sad to see your youngest go to school but another adventure awaits. My eldest goes to school in a couple weeks. Eeeeekkkk....!!!!! He is so excited so it makes it a little less sad. He is so ready to learn. Can't wait to read all about your new journey.


  2. Welcome to the world of blogging.
    Congratulations and good luck on your efforts to find yourself. Too many of us leave it until we are well and truly lost before we do this.
    I look forward to following you on your journey. xo

  3. Good for you Michelle! A blog is a great way to stay focussed and accountable!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment. I love to read them and if you leave me a way of finding you I will pop on over and say hi.
