Good afternoon everyone!

I lost 2.5lbs so Im well chuft! Really needed a loss.
Had a whoopsie this morning or it was more through the night actually I ate a bag of haribos..had lots saved up tho so think enough to cover it!!

Was reading yesterday in a magazine(a slimming one of course lol) this woman had lost masses of weight and every weigh in day after she had LOST she had something that she felt she missed..hers was a cream cake! Ive been thinking what I would have if I did this...? I had thought of lumpy bumpy cake from my local morrisons cafe and a lush latte lol or a portion of fries from mcds...both things totally not good for the liver of course.

what does everyone else do to stay on track??? Surely we cant all be goody too shoes all the time!??
I have to get ready now for the lunch time rush at the cooke household ...what will it be today??!

speak to you very soon

love lots sherry xxx

I never stop being amazed!

Hi everyone,
Hope you are all well and are slimmer since my last post!
Things are better with me I come to know that things are never as bad as what they appear to be,someone is always feeling it more than you!
Last Thursday after our great day out at the zoo my good friend Laura at 37 had a heart attack ...I was totally shocked as she was...its something you read about in magazines and never expect it too happen to someone close to you.
I feel better today having been to see her and she looks in great spirits and it has only been a 'small' attack but still warning enough that your body needs to slow down (if you read this laura...take note Im onto more chips and cheese for you ma lass lol!)

On a lighter note ..Ive been busy doing wedding corsages and flowers which has kept my mind off the demon food!! lol
If you fancy a look you can see all my nice things by going to- (hope it works lol)

Its dinner time at this zoo and Im going to make pork loin with new potatoes and mustard and mushroom sauce with steam veggies so I better get onto that now and stop chatting to you! lol

take care of each other.

love shiralee xx

Liver without the onions!!!

well hello everyone,
Its been a few days since a left anything on here..
There has been a few reasons..Firstly Ive been quite busy doing peoples wedding flowers and as its near valentines day Ive had a run on corsages and single stem roses lol
I also got the results back from my liver tests. I was also at hospital today to see a specialist.
Ive been a little sad and scared too be honest we never want to know theres something going on inside us where we cant see!
I have what is commonly known as fatty was a blow a can tell you!! I immediately thought omg..Ive done this too myself. The doctor reassured me that I could be 6 stones and be told i had 'fatty liver' but as Im obese( hate that word) losing weight will eliminate that as the reason!!
I also got a list of foods to aviod..sadly all the foods that I love but I havent been eating them for the last 6 weeks and I dont miss them so Im sure i will manage without them now!! So watch this space I will be thin and I will lose this fat from my liver!
I spent a great day at edinburgh Zoo through the week with my Friend Laura and our kids and my wee neice Ellie it was soo much fun although we did see alot of animals doing dodgy things!!
A frisky baboon, A gorilla playing with his willy lol, A rhino willy as he peed all over us! Was so much fun but try explaining all that to a 5 year old lol

well ile speak to you all soon Im off to get ready for my hot date with my hubby for valentines day..hope you all have lots of love tomorow! xxxx

sherry,love to all!

Hello everyone!
Well today has been a funny old day actually....
I woke up thinking right today is weigh in day lets get this lb off and my first stone..when I stepped on the scales they said the same as last week AGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

If Id been bad and eating alot of good things or even had a treat Id have seen the logic but to sts when you have actually tried now thats just unfair!

I even felt rubbish as my hubby lost 3lbs and is now weighing less than terrible is that! Cant believe how wrapped up in just me I am sometimes! I even forgot to send him his well done text that I send every monday after ive looked to see what hes lost...That made me feel even worse!!

I have decided to take a fellow weight watchers advice and think sometimes you just have to stick 2 fingers up to the scales and say...I know i did well so there!

I also know that this is only a minor set back on my road to slimness...and it will be a long road..but with all my good friends (you know who you all are) I will get there!!
Now to more important things like what Im going to do to secure a good weight loss!!!
Not sure everyone knows but I developed an unhealthy addiction to mikados
They are just soooooo totally nice!! well I was munching the 76g box for 4 points but have now found littler boxes 3 for £1.99 at 2 pts per box and will limit myself to one per day!! Also the corner shop sell them in the small boxes! So Im going to walk to the shop everyday for my mikados lol
Todays eating had been good

- toast and laughing cow 3.5
-2 tiangle egg sandwhiches and 2 scotch pancakes with jam -6 pts
-chilli con carne and rice with wws nachos and vegetables for 7.5
- ready brek and milk,mikados and a snowball 6.5

total 23.5 so alls good!!

Hope everyone else has a great week and thanks for listening! xx

Well stood on scales today and had a 3lb happy with that.

Ive decided that I will also get up early all week and see if this helps me sleep and Im also not taking my laptop upstairs as I think being on the laptop keeps me awake. I left it downstairs last night and slept which was great got up refreshed today..ready for my day!!

After talking to kim tonight I realise that maybe I havent put the fattest of pics on my profile...I am fat in everyone you understand but they perhaps dont quite catch it lol

It was from this picture I decided enough is enough and NO more!!
I have always been the fat little sister or big sherry...never just Sherry! I remember not so long ago my mum handing me a tshirt that totally sucked by the way and said 'theres a t shirt for you I bought it but it is too big for me!' It hurt me so much.
I have since noticed that she actually does it alot....has little digs about my weight like youve always been a big lass,constantly asks if u want biscuits even tho she knows m slimming.
I dont want to be that big lass anymore I want to just be me! xx

hi everyone,

When we started back on weight watchers on our first trip to asda for the weekly shop ..I said 'right then..what sweet u wanting for the film saturday?' Hubby said 'none lets just try and give the saturday chocs a miss and break the habit!'

My god the shock and horror must have been all over my face...a whole weekend with no chocolate,this was going to be hell!

We managed it tho watched a film and just had a normal night like we would have through the week.

Our normal thing would have been wahey the weekend and we would have blown all the good work we had done through the week.

We are 3 weeks in now and not missing choc I mean heavy duty choc!! lol
Todays eating has went really good..another thing we miss is the good old take away so at the weekends ive been making meals with the take away theme...tonight we had chicken biryani and it was really fabby!! It was from a wws cook book and was only 6.5pts and a great sized portion..I actually left some!

night all

When people let you down...

Today was a good day untill night time lol

Dont really know where to start..the eating has been fine havent done anything there so dont worry haha

A family member let me down today and it really hurt me..hubby said I was being silly and I should be more thick skinned but then I wouldnt be me!

I feel like some people are just take take take and never give anything in return and that sadens and really hurts me.

We have two dogs who are I suppose the apple of my them dearly they have seen me through alot with my illness's if I was sad or sore or even just weepy my wee Tara was there with her little wet nose at my face to let me know she was there.

Its very hard for me and my hubby to trust people to watch them as I constantly worry about them when we are on holiday to the point where we didnt have a holiday abroad last year. This year I asked my neice and her fiancee who we trust very much and knew would treat the dogs well..she said yes no problem and we were happy knowing that the dogs would be ok.

Tonight she 'text' (which is worse) and said her fiance didnt want the dogs as didnt want the responsibilty.......I am sure there are people reading this saying stupid woman but I was soooo hurt!

We have done alot for my neice and I felt really let down. Ive also had a really bad few years health wise and she knows how ill I am and she couldnt just not be selfish this once and help us for a was bad enough they has a new years party and didnt think to ask us then came for new years day dinner..ate it said how great it was then left lol

Dog kennels really are not an option for hubby just mentioned it and i was in floods of tears...maybe its nearly my time of the month but the thought of driving away and leaving them in a kennel just is not good!!

Anyway rant over and if anyone is still reading this thankyou!!
