    >Progress and Photos

    >You know how I wrote last week that I was never, ever going to see that “2” again? Well, I’m up 2lb and saw that hated “2” this morning. Of course I did go to a wedding at the weekend and I did drink a lot of alcohol. Not only that but I seriously (and stupidly) mixed my alcohols. My hangover lasted two days, I’m getting old! So I’m being pleased that I didn’t gain more because truly I thought I would have. I promised photos this week too so here goes. I’m not too sure if the 20lb ish loss shows. This is my “before” pic which was taken…

    >And this was before she had a drink…

    >My mother strikes again. We went to my cousin’s wedding yesterday so I got myself all dressed up (photos to come) and then went to the door to let mum in. “Hello, you look nice. Where’s your walker?” “in my bedroom.” “and your chair, where’s your wheelchair?” “I’m sat in it.” “Are you? [pause] oh yeah…” All content copyright Emma Crees, 2006 – 2012 unless otherwise stated http://writerinawheelchair.blogspot.com

    >This just screamed “Blog me! Blog ME!”

    >The following is a quote from my mother. She has my so-called spare wheelchair (Quickie) at her house as it went to have some work done and she’s been cleaning it up. “So I took the fire guards off of your wheelchair…” I tell you, wheelchairs are getting more and more high tech and multipurpose every day!

    >The End of The May Day Weight Loss Challenge

    >The final weigh in for the MDWLC over at Tales from the Scales is today. And I’ve lost another 2lb. Making a total of 20lb lost in just over two months. (although I did participate in the whole challenge, I started afresh 1st July 07 for various reasons). My cousin gets married at the weekend; I will get someone to take an “after” photo of me when we are there and post it here soon as I can. It won’t really be an after picture because I still have a long way to go (about another 3 stone/42lb). But it will be a good picture and something to be proud…

    >100 Books Club – Update

    >I read a really interesting book today. And I’m in the middle of updating my 2007 book list spreadsheet (which really, really will will be back up here properly this week). Haven’t added in the pages of the last 8 or so books I read yet. But I’ve read 80 Books so far this year! Somehow I don’t feel so bad now about the fact that I’ve got 32 books (at least) that I’ve bought or been given and not read – and hey it WAS 36 but I’ve since read four of them! Hopefully I can read a few more before my amazon parcel containing another three books arrives……

    >completely irrelevant post

    >This is a completely irrelevant post but it is my burning thought of the last ten minutes and deserves to be recorded here. I think I shall try to go and see the Snow Queen in Oxford in November. And then, perhaps, for my birthday, a trip to Starlight Express? Loved the Snow Queen and have never seen Starlight Express. There hasn’t been enough theatrical stuff in my life this year. But this sounds like a plan, no?

    >Food Blog for Today – sort of live blogging

    >Melodee over at The Amazing Shrinking Mom has set a challenge to try to use fitday.com to journal your food intake for 10 days. To see if that helps with weight loss etc. Reading everyone else’s food lists is really interesting and I wanted a go. But I don’t like fitday (find it hard to use) so I thought I would list everything here. Breakfast Rice Krispies with semi-skimmed milkRaisinsMangoes and Passionfruit Innocent Smoothie Note: I usually struggle to get breakfast in so I am very pleased to have managed it and to get three portions of fruit in with it. To work now before I am late. More later.…

    >May Day Challenge Week Seventeen

    >I don’t know if this will actually post or not because my site seems to be of a mood to throw hissy fits this afternoon. So I’ll keep it short and sweet. And it is pretty sweet. I was down another 1lb this morning! Down 18 in total and very happy about that too 🙂 All content copyright Emma Crees, 2006 – 2012 unless otherwise stated http://writerinawheelchair.blogspot.com
