OMG and I do mean OMG , have just nipped down to Argos to buy a new pair of bathroom scales as my others had packed . so I weighed myself and shock and horror I am about 8 lbs overweight . I cannot believe it I thought the odd glass of wine here and there but just shows how it creeps on . Distraught !

Distraught? over a couple of extra pounds?.....................hmm sense of proportion required methinks. wink

Don't be distraught, Nonu! Just have a wee look at Glass's diet thread, and before long all will be well again - it worked for me! smile

Nonu you have to be more careful! grin
Make sure both the brackets are square ones, don't put more than one GRIN in and in the case of the cupcake it has to be singular!

Nonu Mon 03-Sep-12 16:30:55

Oh Nonu, good luck, but I'm getting pragmatic in my old age.....was always 'well covered' but the older I get the more the rest of the population is catching up with me. And weve had more than a few horrid things to cope with so on my scale of whats important.........hey but thats just me! Seriously good luck, I've had my skinny times and it is lovely to not wince when you catch sight of yourself in shop window.
