Help! I Was Taken Away by Aliens

Help! I Was Taken Away by Aliens.

Here we are gals…we have made it to the other side of Chrimbo !! Alive!….!!! Goodness knows what has happened to me! I think I have been taken away by aliens! false fed and then dropped back to earth again! with a BANG! and a cup of realization!…goodness gracious me! I didnt realise, I had put on, THAT much weight…for the last few months I have been surveying my body in a tilted mirror over the bathroon sink! (forgetting that, if a mirror is tilted…it tells a DREADFUL lie!)

Now I haven’t actually weighed myself…because I refuse to do that…having a set of scales in my bathroom only leads to constantly stepping on and off them through the day, and that is no excuse for a work out…even though I will kinda convince myself that it is!

…And even more serious that all of that…is the pending 80th Birthday Party on Sunday 10th! Yes it my Mum’s birthday lunch!…and I have just 6 days to loose 5 stone!..any suggestions?…Failing loosing the weight, I will have to find a slinky black number that will shrink me into a size 14….answers on a postcard please for that very dress! and before sunday…well perhaps before saturday, so that I can plan my outfit and sort out some accessories! LOL!


Update…hehehe! honestly gals, off course I am only joking! most of you know, I have had a problem with my weight on and off, but I am rarely that worried about it! its just that I would of liked to of been a couple of sizes smaller for this event!…but I haven’t put any effort into it, and I have ate for England over Christmas…so what did I expect 🙂 I will probably be the life and soul of the party anyway!, as I always feel responsible for silences! I’m like a renta-crowd in my own right!!!!! 🙂 so do remember I’m always available for weddings, barmitzfahs etc etc (sorry if I have spelt that last word wrong! never was my best subject spelling! Eek!

The snow seems to be affecting everyone at the moment and it is forecast again for us here in Medway!….I am just hoping it doesn’t affect the plans for the party…so please all pray for it being nice and melted for the weekend, even if we do have to have it 🙂 and please all be careful out there gals….get in some supplies and button down the hatches…stay in and keep warm!!!…that could be another slogan for a cushion!

Love you all:)

Love Happy xx

    I needed to loose weight before christmas and now I'm too scared to step on the scales What makes is worse is that I am surrounded by people at work who need to loose 2 or 4 lbs when I need to loose that in stones and fewer and fewer shops seem to stock big sizes now its so depressing…………..just remember its what's inside the package that counts, not the wrapping paper!

    argh! tell me about it! I've put on half a stone over christmas, nicht good! On the other hand if you cut your legs off for the weekend then that's a little weight gone 😛 hope the snow clears enough for the party to go ahead! I love snow, but it is such a pain when you have to leave the house 🙁 i have refused to drive anywhere for 2 weeks now! My boyfriend has become my personal snow chauffeur! hah! xxxxx

    Funny! Hope the party goes off as planned. Btw, I sent you a flickr message, but I'm not sure you received it. I mentioned the possibility of blog banner design for a new blog of mine. If you didn't get this message, would you mind emailing me? Thanks!

    I was visiting my friends site, Skirts in Wellies and saw a link to this site, so I decided to give it a visit. I'm so glad I did. I love your style, theme words, inspiration, etc. I have only been on your site for a few minutes and I'm already inspired to redo my life and own blog. Plus I can relate to the alien abduction. I think they visited my house too. 🙂

    I'm glad that I'm not the only one! I'm sure that Baileys should be illegal it contains sooo many calories, but Christmas just wouldn't be the same without it….I hope that you enjoy the party whatever your dress size, and treasure every moment with your Mum.I lost my lovely Mum unexpectedly 8 years ago and I can honestly say that not a day goes by without me regretting not having spent more time with her, made that extra phone call, and just been a better, nicer daughter.Love every minute, treasure every second, and tell her you love

    Dont worry about the weight, and just be thankful you have your mum! My dad is 80 on the 13th,mum passed away 3 yrs this May. Will be having a little tea party for dad next Wednesday with all his favourite foods (cream cakes and choccies especially!) Ive put on weight too (dont think it is just us in Kent!) Just be happy (which you are if your name is anything to go by!) And Happy Birthday to your dear mum, best wishes Betty (a Kentish maid,but always wanted to be a fair maid of kent….born the wrong side of the Medway!)

    Well, short of getting instant liposuction and tummy tucks, I have to say – buy a dress (or pant suit) that looks absolutely smashing on you, and walk into that party with the aire of confidence that makes you who you are ~ the Happy we all know and love!

    Well I've been saved from crash dieting by getting ill the past few days and not eating anything but jelly!! Although I wouldn't recommend this method as aside from the jelly it isn't very pleasant!!Victoria xx

    Teehee I love this photo – she looks how I feel about going out in the snow!! You will look fantastic whatever you decide to wear I am sure. My husband has just rushed out to buy Paul Mackenna's Think Yourself Slim book and according to good old Paul you can eat whatever you want … so we are just finishing off the crimbo choccies now x

    Wait till after your party…then go for leisurely walks…and before you know'll be energized. The holidays have a way of sneaking up on us…so hold off till the sense in starting something now, not with pending birthday cake around the corner. Have a good one!tootles,bunny

    Hey Happy,I bet you didn't gain that much weight, and if you did, I bet it felt good! Who can resist all the Christmas goodies in the first place? Well, anyway, it's not a sin to enjoy life, so just keep being happy!Love,Meri

Good luck with it and short of chopping a couple of limbs off I have no suggestions for you sorry.Have fun choosing your outfit I'm sure you'll look lovely.Have a great weekKate.
