On Being Ginger

I am part of one of the smallest minorities in the world. I am one of only 1-2% of the population. I am ginger. I have always been ginger. I will always be ginger, at least until the colour fades with age and goes white, as it does with redheads. My Mother was ginger, her father was ginger and generations before him all had ginger hair. Lastly, my Daughter is…

Post-Baby Weight Loss Journey – Week 3

After a disappointing 0.5lb loss last week I have really been focusing on Weight Watchers this week, tracking everything I eat and trying to exercise more. It must have worked – 3.5lb loss! I have now lost half a stone within my first 3 weeks back on Weight Watchers and got my silver 7 sticker! πŸ™‚ The one big change this week has been my discovery of Butternut Squash –…

Post-Baby Weight Loss Journey – Week 2

I haven’t been very ‘on it’ this week with weight watching – I have tracked my main meals using the app on my iphone and I have also included any snacks but I know there are things that didn’t get included – occasional puddings, a glass of wine, a magnum ice lolly.

Quidco – Money for nothing? A Review

When telling Hubby about this new website his immediate reaction was “Free money?…

Post-Baby Weight Loss Journey – Week 1

I started Weight Watchers last Monday and today was my first proper weigh-in! I lost 3lb!! Woohoo. Go me! I do realise though that the first week you tend to lose more than you usually will and will be happy in future weeks to only lose 1-2lb. I have been counting all my Pro Points every day and initially decided to not use the 49 points extra that you’re allowed…

The Start of My Post-Baby Weight Loss Journey

Today was a big day for me – I not only took Little Man for his 6 week check up with our GP but I also signed up to Weight Watchers. I did Weight Watchers after having LP and lost all my pregnancy weight plus a little bit more. You can read the story of that weight loss here. I am in the fortunate position that when I was at…

Transition from Cot to Bed

I realised recently that quite a big event in LP’s life happened recently, at the grand old age of 21 months, and I didn’t blog about it – I think having a new baby has overshadowed a lot of things and so I’ll be documenting them as and when I get around to it. Up until we found out we were pregnant again, LP had the ‘baby room’ in our…
