Lamest Excuse Ever...
 
Which would be the excuse of why I haven't started a thread here yet: I couldn't think of a good title!

Also because, frankly, I'm embarrassed. I've gained back so much of the weight I have lost. The past few months I went through a bit of a depression and became best friends with a certain boozy pirate. :rolleyes: I used to drink once or twice a YEAR, now I was drinking every night.

But I'm one week into the contest and one week without any alcohol and I'm feeling great!!!

My start date was September 11 and my finish date will be December 3.

There's been something in the water regarding weight gain...

Anyway, as many wise folks have said, it doesn't matter if you fall off the horse, what matters is you get back on and give it a good ole' giddyup. There will always be ups and downs but as long as an up follows the down there's nothing to fret over. What's done is done! (The baboon in the Lion King had a similar motto).

Anyhoo, congratulations on a successful first week :) This contest looks like it's going to be very competitive!

agree with what my young Scottish friend has just said.

Time to bring things back into focus and get that TT contest prize-winning figure back.

Hey there Abby,

So great to see you back. I had a look at your 1st TT contest way back when. Awwww, you have the cutest hairstyle I think I've ever seen. Revisited your last entry too oh Woman of Muscles,,, hehehehe. I hope you're still under 40yo, otherwise I've got some extra tough competition this time,,, as if it's not tough enough already. I know of one lady who has done soooo well already which is really marvellous. Congrats on the no-drinking. I'd done the same this year with the alcohol. Funny enough though, I just had some at 9am this morning, but it's what is supposed to make the asian herbal formula kick in faster. That's my excuse and I'm sticking with it ;), esp. since I would never have even known about asian salt-free rice wine otherwise. Potent stuff really. Anyhows, enough of my rambling on your thread. Just so thrilled to see you here again. Even viewing your pics again has greatly inspired me. Thanks mate.

Cheers for now,

Robyn :)

Thanks Ma! For dinner tonight we had the cover recipe of the Sept Cooking Light - mac and cheese made with brown rice spirals and a butternut squash "bechamel". Yummy!

Thanks Robyn! First TT contest? Gee whiz, that feels like forever ago. I'm actually blonde again right now. Needed a change!
