On Thursday I joined a group of bloggers at the John Lewis Christmas Magic Preview. I was in shiny, happy heaven for the whole time I was there. Held in an amazing building I could have happily stayed there forever just sighing and stroking the pretties that I saw. I thought that I would share some of my pictures. Some lovely and very knowledgeable people showed us around and chatted to us about all of the wonderful things that we saw.

9 months on, 11 months off!
Two months ago I wrote a post where I confessed that instead of losing the weight I gained whilst pregnant the scales were actually creeping up instead of down. So I decided it was time to make a change. In the past 10 weeks I have gone from 170lbs to 152.5lbs. I signed up with Slimming World online and it has been brilliant. Simple to follow, you don’t have to give anything up and I eat loads.
The happy surprise this week was the fact that I fit back into my pre baby jeans. I have gone from the top of a size 16 to a size 14. I feel confident and happy and it is only now I am realising how my weight had really been making me feel.
I am not done though. I am the weight that I was when I got married and fell pregnant but now I have lost this weight I really want to get down to 135lbs and so I will continue to eat well, follow the rules and see what I can do.
