Anyway the purpose of this post is not to comment on the woefully dire weather situation but to impart the news that I've reached another half stone milestone on my 5:2 dieting journey. Not one but two of those lovely great big Cornishware mugs are on their way. I thought that if I have a friend round for a cuppa they might appreciate a vat of tea too!
On reviewing my dieting posts I see that I've been making a concerted effort to lose weight since September 2012 but only really started to see progress from October last year. Since then I've lost 17lb in spite of having Christmas and a holiday in the way. That's not to be sniffed at in my reckoning. The big incentive has been getting as fit as possible before my knee op that's scheduled in just under six weeks now. Might it be possible to lose another stone before I go under the knife. Let's see.
So, now to choose another milestone reward to aim for. What shall it be? Now after thinking long and hard I've decided that I would really like a new pair of glasses to pep up the image of the new slimmer me!
