I've just realised.............

11 lb's is my 10%! I've achieved something :)

I woke up this morning and was thinking up a million and one excuses not to walk half the journey to work.Then I spoke to the Scotsman who proceeded to tell me how wet and freezing cold it was outside.This seemed like an out of body experience as :
(a) I found myself telling him that I'll just put my waterproof on (which he knows I hate with a vengeance as I feel I look so dowdy and daggy in it) and just do it,as if I don't start there will always be an excuse not to do exercise.

(b) He then said,oh well,good for you darling,it will take you no time.I said 'no time for what?' And he said,'no time at all and you'll lose pounds and get fit and healthy.You've done amazing so far.'

Scrape my jaw off the floor! Words of encouragement from my Scotsman?!?!?!?!? Don't get me wrong,he is wonderfully loving and supportive of everything and anything in my life......he just never actually articulates it out loud.....with sentences.Pretty much a typical Scottish man,so I've been told ;P

So,I'm off to get a supply of ventolin from Boots and resist the temptation of weighing myself early,and then setting off on my walk to work,praying that the Scottish rain doesn't open up on me.

Oh,and I found this quote on the Aussie WW boards,
while I was contemplating to walk,or not to walk "You can have the results you say you want, or you can have all the reasons in the world why you can’t have them. But you can’t have both. Reasons or results. You get to choose." Susan Carlson

That's a virtual kick up the ass if ever I did hear one :D xox

That's a really good quote. Hope you enjoyed your walk and didn't get too damp.
