More baby smiles and a resolution (perhaps!)

These next few photos are just because Alice is so cute!! If you're getting fed up with looking at baby photos you might be better off coming back another day ;o)

 As for the resolution part - I don't normally make resolutions at all because I never keep them. This year however, I would like to go down a dress size by the end of the year. I started back at Weight Watchers at the beginning of September last year wanting to lose a stone before Alice was born. I was close! I finally lost my first stone the week after Alice was born. I then fell off the wagon a bit as life was fairly hectic with a baby in the house and I stopped going to Weight Watchers.
Last night, however, I went back to face the music and it wasn't as bad as I had thought - I'd put on 3.5 pounds since the end of November.   Now I have to get back in the right mindset, I need to take the time to read through the new ProPoints diet and start tracking again. I couldn't get my head round the new ProPoints in November which was one of the reasons I stopped going but I need to now climb on board.

I went down one dress size when I lost the stone but realise it may take me a bit more to go down another dress size. I'm not in a hurry, I just want to feel better in myself and hopefully at the same time start exercising more and become a bit fitter. I had been walking Cloud each day but when the snow arrived, that stopped too so it's time to get back to getting out each day. I don't know that I'll post about it regularly but by putting it out here I'll feel more accountable and hopefully by the end of the year, you may see a difference if I post a photo of myself ;o)

Now to go and start reading through the programme ready for my start tomorrow!


  1. Who could ever tire of pictures of gorgeous little Emily?!!

    Good luck on the Weight Watchers. I've been doing low-carb this week...hoping I can last.

  2. I certainly don't tire of baby pics....she's looking gorgeous....I must get some of my xmas ones on my blog.
    Good luck with the weight's one of my 'resolutions' as well.

  3. I will never get tired of seeing pictures of that cutie pie!

    Good luck with your WW goal. I don't know if I've mentioned but my mom lost 80 pounds on WW 30 years ago and has kept it off. She lives her food life in points! I put on a few pounds over the holidays. I eat fairly healthy, but I don't exercise as often as I should. :o\

  4. Who can ever get tired of baby pictures of an adorable baby?? Keep them coming!

    Good for you for heading back to WW. I lost 27 lbs last year when I switched to vegetarian eating. I went a bit goofy over the holidays and need to focus again.

    How much is a "stone"?

    Hugs from Joni

  5. Well done on your weight loss Joni! That's really good! A stone is 14 pounds :) xx

  6. I was glad Joni asked about a "stone." That's very impressive, and not easy to do. I can't imagine getting tired of seeing photos of Alice.

  7. We could never tire of baby photos, she's such a cutie! :-)

    Many congrats on your weight loss, that's a great achievement. I went to WW after The Girl was born and it suited me very well, I lost a couple of stone - I'd put on a LOT during the pregnancy!! I find that the good habits WW started are still there, and though I may let them slip now and then, I know how to pull it back again. We'll be cheering you on! xx
