It makes you wonder on all these "low fat" items what they are putting in the ingrediants to conceal what they are taking out?
Nowadays I dont really pay any attention to whats ACTUALLY in the ingrediants as WW has "brainwashed" me into checking the saturated fat contents. POINT POINT POINT!
You might be surprised to learn all these foods contain glucose-frutose syrup;-
WW vanilla and fruit fromage frais
Petits Filous Frubes
Kelloggs cornflakes, all bran
Ribena blackcurrent drink
Ocean spray cranberry classic juice drink
Anyway enough of the lecture :) I keep forgetting to tell you that on the weekend we went to Longleat as you know and OMG it was great! I cant wait to go back! Its great, as the attractions that we missed out you can go back FOC!
Happy WW guys! x

She explains that this wasnt always the case and that a small baby was very overweight so he had to have a high caloried diet in order to gain weight. She went on to say that as he got older he would cry for food and say how hungry he was all the time. By time this child was 8yrs old he weighed more than 9st and suffered with numerous ailments. Worse by the time had reached his 10th birthday he was going to school in a wheelchair, weighing in at 13st 11lbs .
His mother also says "In 4 generations of my family we have 19 people who are clinically obese, Williams vast problems were also genetic".
This is the factor that question - Is obesity a genetic disorder? I didnt think so?
So I googled this mother to see what I could find out about her and as it turns out both this boy's parents have had weight loss surgery.
Children's development comes purely from parents and other surrounding influences - having suffering with a weight problem myself I will do everything in my power to stop my daughter becoming overweight. I didnt have overweight parents, in fact both my mother and sister suffered eating disorders so how do you explain that?
It is purely down to lifestyle choice? You choose what you eat and You choose what you feed you family. Feed your children junk - and this is all they will know.

Hope I havent offended anyone with this post, I just felt that this mother was making an excuse as to why her 10yr old son resulted in something as severe as a Gastric Bypass.

Yesterday I was having a wander around Tesco and spotted a almighty BARGAIN which I just had to purchase -
I saw this book in W H Smiths a while back and couldnt bear to part with £10 for it, so when I saw it for 3 quid I couldn contain my excitement! I ran to the till to pay (earning activity points along the way!)
I havent had chance to get started on it yet but at a quick flick its def worth £3! They had a whole range of other books too but all at full price.
My excitment doesnt end there- last night I was looking through my WI card and noticed that I had actually lost 2.5lbs!!!! OMG was I chuffed! She hadnt taken in to account my result from last week (I weighed at a diff location)
While looking through my WI card last night I calculated that with a loss of 1lb (hopefully this week) I will have lost 20% of my body weight!!! I will be weighing in Thursday night this week as we are all off to Longleat on Saturday for Lily-Rose birthday so plenty of activity points me thinks!
We went for a nice long walk yesterday at St Fagans which was really enjoyable. Im trying to keep it a ritual that every Sunday morning we go for a family walk - I managed to rack up some points too!

S:- apple (0.5)
L:- Subway turkey and ham, lots of salad,lf mayo and NO CHEESE (4.5) WW tortilla (1)SF jelly (0)
S:- Satsuma (0.5)
T:- Smoked Haddock (2.5) Roasted veg (0) Sweetcorn (1) Sweet Pot (2)

Ok not hard I thought just pop a yogurt in the freezer.. allow to freeze... take out when frozen...
So I eat my tea... grab my yogurt and a spoon sit my big butt down with hubbie to watch 24 and "TRY" to eat my frozen yogurt! It was like hitting a brick wall, no spoon was getting in there!
So I left it to slight defrost for 10 mins and it was like chipping away at ice! Even tasted like ice! So not a good idea.....
Lucky I had WW choc slices at home so polished off one of them! 1.5 points!
Wasnt a good day thinking about it, god damn internet still isnt working at home! Virgin tell me another 5 working days!
On a brighter note its WI tomorrow and Lily-Rose birthday party! woop woop!
Have a great weekend everyone xxx

Who else does this?
Not this week though im trying really hard, I went to the gym again yesterday and sweated it out for another hour. Then came home to a lovely tea of fish, salad, coleslaw and homemade wedges all for 6 points!
I feel really heavy this week TOTM and all so pouring water in me like there is no tomorrow! Really hoping for a loss or at least a STS? My belly is sooo huge and heavy!

Thought I would post quickly about another new discovery of mine and my sweet tooth!
I had my cousin over last night for a natter and some supper (spag bol), only I didnt have a dessert at hand so I whipped up some fruit kebabs. They consisted of kiwi, satsuma,pineapple and grapes oh and not forgeting strawberries. I made us up 2 each and drizzled them with chocolate - THEY WERE TO DIE FOR!
Im going to WI in tomorrow morning which is 2 days early for me so im not sure what to expect? Im just going with the moto "No more gains", STS is fine but def NO GAINS!
Our bodies are funny things though as I waiting for the excercise to catch up and stop me loosing and TOTM is due? But hey ho we'll know in the morning.
The reason for this is that im going out with the girlies on Friday night and a meal out the night before WI always shows a gain for me?! Dont know why this happens so im gonna weigh in early!
Tonights evening meal is Smoked cod loin, corn on the cob, baby pots, veg (6)?? Ill calculate it when I get home.
Have a great eve everyone peace out xxx
