A Weighty Issue!!

A lot of my friends from England have been commenting on my weight loss, not surprising really as I have been rather weighty since embarking on the whole motherhood thing. This year I decided to try to be a thin person, I was sick of not being able to fit into any of my clothes, sick of looking at fat photos of myself and sick and tired of being overweight. So the weight loss far I have lost 24 lbs and I couldn't be happier.

This is the biggest I have ever been, I was 40 lbs heavier than I am now!!!

The secret to my success? The South Beach Diet, for me it really works. It is so easy to follow, the cook book has really delicious recipes and it makes total sense. In a nutshell, don't eat sugar and swap white carbohydrates for brown - pretty simple really!!

This week I am the sponsor over at 52 Sketches , up for grabs is one of the November Main Kits, (so if you didn't manage to get one before they sold-out, this could be your chance). You just have to make a layout based on this weeks sketch and upload it onto their website by Sunday. I am sure you are all familiar with 52 sketches but if not, you must check it out.

So have a wonderful Monday and just to let you know, I will be announcing that thing I had up my sleeve later in the week!!!


  1. Well done Tara. Your brother is working on it, too, but you are way ahead! And, I am sure you get a lot of exercise chasing the Oompa Loompas.

  2. Congrats on the weightloss - it's a good feeling isn't it? I lost 60lbs last year and love it!! I'm enjoying reading your blog - I'm a Brit living in Alberta, Canada.

  3. Hi Jane, I found your blog a few days ago and was going to leave a comment about your bee keeping. I have always wanted to have a bee hive. I looked into it a few years ago when we were in England, it seems such a wonderful thing to do.

  4. Congrats on the weight loss!!! I am expecting #3 in Jan 2010 - total shocker so it has been hard to see all this weight pack on so I will be joining you on the weight loss campaign in the new year! Hang in there!! You certainly aren't alone!!!

  5. Appreciate that. See what we sacrifice for those little ones!!!
