Had my weigh in today and lost 3kgs./6.6lbs which brings my weight to 68.5kgs/151lbs. I feel great!!!

Weight Chart

A couple of weeks ago I was given three awards. One by the beautiful Emilia of 238 and Shrinking and the other two by the ever so lovely Alexia of My Wicked Wicked Ways and equally gorgeous Miss Haneefa of Black Girl Gets Fit. I thought I'd combine answering them because they both require that I reveal 7/10 things about myself that you probably don't know. I really don't know if I can come up with that many things but I'm going to try.

1. I'm a licensed scuba diver.

2. The first boy I ever kissed was French :)

3. I got kicked out of a class in graduate school after I had an argument with a teacher and not only wouldn't back down but ended up calling him a "fascist pig" :(

4. This would be a good time to say that I'm a really positive, easy going and warm person but on the rare occasion if someone gets on my wrong side I don't care who they are, I'll rip their head off.

5. I love the sound of rain on a galvanised roof.

6. I make the best cheesecake ever.

7. I'm fluent in French.

8. I LOVE George Carlin. He is my soul brother and I was heartbroken when he died.

9. My husband made on of my dreams come true when he took me to see Barbra Streisand in concert when she was in London a few years ago.

10. I love people but at heart I'm an introvert and would rather spend time quietly at home than out socialising.

Okay, I'll pass along these awards by inviting you to share 5-10 things about yourself here if you feel like it.


  1. I am sooooooo happy for you and your weight loss! That is AWESOME!
