Whoo hoo!

I'm on a roll! I didn't tell anyone last week but I started Weight watchers last week and today was my first day of weighing in. I have had a lifetime of struggles with my weight, I'm one of those people who looks at chocolate and I'm 10lbs heavier! It drives me insane, but still it's who I am so I just gotta work with it.

Anyway I lost an incredible 5lbs in my first week, I rarely lose this much weight when cutting back but I think this is more an indication of how indulgent I've been lately than how well I'm doing he he!

My initial aim is to get to this weight


This is me with my lovely friend Ellie at The Bellagio in Las Vegas. I want to get to this weight cos I want to get back in this!!


I think it's my favourite dress of all time, gold lame, wow!  I also don't need to be a skinny minnie to get in it.

Then my next aim down the line is this so I can wear these dresses!!




As you can tell I'm not built slim but I'm happy at that weight and I can get into nice clothes, so I just have to be sensible about what's within my normal weight range, I can't starve myself, how on earth do people do that, and more to the point why?!!

So there won't be any posts of cocktails or huevos rancheros or risottos for a while, this lady is determined!! Although I'm under no false illusions it will be easy, or plain sailing and I've already said when we do events, I just have to forget about weight watchers, you eat what you can get in those situations!!

This is how impressive I've been I only had 1/2 bottle of wine ALL WEEK! Yes all week!

I'm off to a good start so wish me luck!

Rock on! You're beautiful at any weight and good for you for doing what makes me you feel good. That gold lame dress sure looks like a great goal (uh, in the meantime did you want me to take care of it for you?)

I wish you much luck! I know the feeling of accepting we will never be thin but just wanting to feel good in some cute clothes. I think the size in the pics is perfect!
I can see how those lovely dresses will be good incentive.
I went back to WW last week too, and have been keeping it to myself so far. Thanks for your encouraging post!

I am so with you. I'm trying to get control of my eating with another group. And your blog has come at a time when I needed a reminder. Contrats and good luck.

Leprechauna said...

Sometimes I read your blog and think "She is me", well except, you are cuter! I started a program on Saturday myself. Down 4!!!!!!!
My inspiration was wanting to make my own vintage clothes, but I required way too much fabric! WE CAN DO THIS!

Vintage Vixen said...

Well done! You are both beautiful and determined and I know you can do it. Gorgeous pictures, what an enviable array of frockage. xxx

Miss Magpie said...

Oh, you are the second person I know who has been doing well at Weight Watchers, think I'm going to have to bite the bullet.....eek

Here I want to see a picture of you in that amazingly gorgeous green dress!!

Good on yer, gorgeous! Love the frocks.xxx

Vintage Christine said...

Well, my glorious zaftig goddess, you have now shamed me into at least THINKING about going on a diet. I've never done WW, although I've been a sparkling failure at every other diet created since 1950 (the year I was born). Now I'm nearly 61 and don't know if it's possible to lose the weight I desperately need to shed. But hey, what the heck--why not go for it?! Good luck to you, and hopefully you'll be wishing ME good luck soon, too!!!!

Yesterday Girl said...

Well done you! I think you look fab as you are, but those dresses are bloody lovely!! xxx

Straight Talking Mama! said...

Thanks for all the encouragement people, I thought I'd thanked earlier but can you believe I posted on my blog & it didn't come up DOH!

I will post photos but bear with me I lose weight slowly and it'll be a while til I get back into some of these babies!

Helga! said...

Well done,sexy lassie! 1/2 bottel vino all week boggles me though.I know that's the biggest source of my weight troubles,but I'm rather fond of a drinkie-poo....
Those frocks you're aiming for are gorgeous,and by gawd,you're body is HOT in them!
Phwoar!x

Straight Talking Mama! said...

oh Helga I'm rather fond of a drinkie-poo too but I can't fit into any of my clothes, so I have to sacrifice :o(

Dolly Cool Clare said...

Well done! Weight is one of those really tricky issues..its so easy to put on, and so damned hard to get off! I've been everything from an 8 (too thin for me)to a 16 (too big for me) and everything imbetween over the last 10 years. I feel happiest as I am now as a 10-12 but I have to really watch what I eat and run a lot to stay like this. Its hard work but worth it..even just to get back in your amazing dress collection! Good luck :))

Miss Emmi said...

Well done! Those dresses are awesome, they'll make great motivation for you! I really hope you get back to rocking the gold lamé dress soon because it is HOT!

DearHelenHartman said...

Good for you! The bonus is feeling great when you look that great in your wonderful dresses. Gold lame - the stuff of dreams.

La Dama said...

Bravo!
I tend to lose mostly inches , that gold lame dress is gorgeous like you.
Remember you still hot at any weight.

Well done on the weight loss. I have been thinking of going that route myself as I am rather more short and stout than I would like and also have a closet ful of dress that I still love but don't have a hope of getting into. this past 10 days I did lose 5 pound put due to a terrible flu and am now still not totally recovered. Thanks for the incentive to get off my but and do something about my weight.

delia hornbook said...

Well done on your weight loss thats an amazing amount to lose. I think you have an amazing figure and those dresses Wow your stunning. Curvy is beautiful. Good luck, dee x

LandGirl1980 said...

Thats fantastic!! I lost 3st last year and have not looked back. It can be a shitty and tough journey at times - but it is SO worth it!! :)

Straight Talking Mama! said...

Again thanks for all the encouragment and LandGirl1980 wow 3 stone, well done!

Penny Dreadful said...

Oh good luck Fi, it is boring but those dresses are worth it. I really need to start exercising, I hate it so much but can feel the pounds creeping on. I've already burst out of a few dresses that used to fit fine, bah xx

Natasha de Vil said...

I lost 2 and half stone on Weight watchers it really is in my eyes the only sensible way to lose weight. I always use to lose those extra couple of pounds gained over winter. Keep up the good work :D
