Losing and other ramblings

So I'm now down to 106lbs! yay!  It hasn't been easy but I'm happy that I'm making progress and not shooting myself in the foot (by binging).  The other factor is that now since I've been put on a wheat-free diet I can just say that I'm wheat intolerant and people don't question why I don't eat!  It truly is brilliant. 

A massive thanks to all you lovely ladies for advising me on what dress to wear :)  I looked fabulous thanks to you guys!  The wedding went amazingly, I think the speeches were the best part I was in absolute stitches :)  I caught up with a childhood friend who I hadn't seen in 4 years and he really hasn't changed one bit apart from the fact he's bulked out a bit more.  The food was amazing, we had a monkfish 'amuse-bush' (that word makes me think of the 70's for some reason) then some rabbit which was deep fried in breadcrumbs so thankfully I could use my wheat excuse there, then we had a gorgeously rare steak (I love it still bleeding) which I couldn't finish because I can't handle that much meat in one go and for dessert there was tiramisu but obviously that has biscuit layers so another hi-five for the wheat intolerance...the waiters said they would bring me a fruit salad instead and basically it was chopped up fruit on a plate which was fine with me :)  I think my childhood friend had a field day with my leftovers, he hoovered them up ecstactically. 

I can't describe how much I've missed him, we used to be like brother and sister and it's so good to get that back again since my own actual brother (although I love him) is a total numpty, I honestly think he's 'challenged' in some way - for example he made creme brulee but on doubling the ingredients he didn't double the sugar so thought it would be a brilliant idea to put bitter cocoa poweder on top...so I pointed out that cocoa poweder would actually make it taste less sweet and he decided to solve the problem by ingeniously trying to hoover the cocoa powder off the tops of the creme brulee and in the process took half the creme brulee with it...oh my gosh I literally was in hysterics - I mean who thinks it's a brilliant idea to hoover up a creme brulee in order to get cocoa powder off the top???!!!  My dad threw a fit and made him scrub out the hoover, I just thought it was hilarious but it also makes me think that there really isn't any hope for him.  I'd like to point out also that he is my older brother and will be turning 27 this year so these aren't the mistakes of a teenage boy.

Love to you all and sorry for not blogging more frequently, my bf has been breathing down my neck and I'm working full-time at the moment so I don't have the chance to have alone time on the computer.  I'm off to Malta from next weekend as well for a 2 week holiday with the family so I may not get a chance to blog whilst I'm out there.  So this is basically an apology  in advance :)  I will update my weight before I leave and then hopefully I won't gain whilst I'm out there and I'll check in and natter on when I get back. 
Stay strong everyone

  3. Congrats on 106! That's awesome!

    And the wheat intolerance is brilliant - fresh fruit instead of tiramisu, awesome.

    Your story about your brother was hilarious. I literally started laughing out loud and had to repeat the story to the boyfriend who was looking at me like I was some crazy person. He also found the story hilarious.

    Good luck with your vacation! Have fun!
