Life in the Slow Lane: Good News and Bad News!

Good News and Bad News!

The Good News ..... 1lb lost at today's weigh-in, and given the amount of chocolate I ate over the weekend(remember, it was almost medicinal calm the frayed nerves!!!) I was well-pleased. Another 3lbs and that will be the next goal reached!!

The Bad poor mum has shingles! We suspected it two nights ago-and it was confirmed by the Doctor yesterday. He gave her some medication that he hopes might lessen the pain, but so far all it's done is make her feel quite 'seedy'.I really hope it doesn't last for the rest of their stay, as she isn't a good patient...and I'm not a good nurse!

Thanks to everyone who dropped by yesterday, and to Shimelle for organising the 'Day in Pictures'- I loved having a peek into everyone's lives ( I still have some to get to though).

Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you

  1. Congrats on another pound gone!!

  2. Alison, Congrats on the pound and being so close to your next goal!Unless your mom is staying a long time you may be doomed, shingles takes awhile and everyone I have known to have it has been miserable. What does it mean to be "seedy"? Here it means someone of questionable character.

  3. Congrats on your achievement of 1lb! That's awesome and so great that you are loosing it slowly. Much better chance of keeping it off. So sorry to hear about your mother! Shingles is very tough. I will keep her in my prayers!

  4. Well done on the weight loss, I hope you mum is feeling better soon and is not too bad a patient!

  5. Euw! I hope she feels a lot better soon.

  6. Congrats on your achievement of 1lb!

    Have a wonderful weekend.
