Hello? Anybody there

Latest loss: 0.5lb. Total loss to date: 12lb

Hello everyone. Sorry, I have been incredibly lame in posting. I am sure you all thought I’d given up and abandoned the blog/weight loss. Well I’m pleased to say this isn’t the case, although I didn’t weigh in this week.
The loss above, of half a pound, was actually from Thursday 23 February. It wasn’t as high as I had hoped but I had been out the weekend before and had a few pints, so can’t really complain! In fact, the group leader from my slimming group was there so I couldn’t even deny it even if I wanted to!
I was away the weekend after this weigh in (i.e. last weekend) in York, and that definitely wasn’t a slimming excursion.
I won’t go into all the details, but so I remember exactly what the weekend was like in the future, I’ll list a little of my sinning here:
Pork pies (note the ‘s’, it wasn’t a single pie), crisps, KFC, real ale-a-plenty, cheese, and so on! 
But I always knew it wasn’t going to be a healthy weekend, so I’m not too worried about that in itself.
I have also been away for part of this week (hence no weigh in), but I will be back at group this week. 
I also got my new bike last week and have now got out for a few rides, which I will blog about separately.
However, with the excesses of last weekend, and not being perfect since then, I do need to have a few good days now to try and make a loss possible. If I am honest, I expect that I will have put on weight when I do get to weigh in, but if I work hard this week and stick to being healthy then hopefully I can minimise this.
The positive though is that I am doing more exercise, and more variety, and that is definitely improving my fitness.
Thanks everyone for your comments too, they really do give me encouragement.
The only man in the room.
