I is for Incentive!


We have been making the most of the wonderful weather - hence my absence. Saturday saw us tootle down to Harrogate to see Dorothy and Keith, Sunday we went to a bikers cafe near Leeds. Today we went to Barnard Castle.....where I was measured up for my new bike leathers. My current ones are now far too big, apart from looking a site really they are not all that safe. The armour patches are not stable due to the fit being baggy.
The lady who measured me was very good - obviously she is well experienced and familiar with customers whims etc. She commented on my small hands and feet and used the word petite.........just for my hands and feet I presume!!!!! But it did make me think that whilst I have lost 2 stone I am getting nearer to a more desired weight.....
The leather will be ordered in - the same blue as Jon's and in about 6 weeks the cutting will commence. So.....in 6 weeks time the measurements will be checked!
A good opportunity for a determined, focus on achieving a better result. The wine has gone on hold and tomorrow I will commence my fitness regime. I am OK with the diet side of matters - but the keep fit business has to be started!

  1. We shall want to see pictures you know.
    My leathers are a little big [my weight has gone up then down since I originally got them in 05] but not to the point where I can justify new ones yet [esp as I am not at target]

    But well done you! ATGATT as they say

  3. Way to go! Nothing like a deadline to get a fitness regime going! I'm trying to reignite mine too, started with a good walk today, but finding it hard to get time 2 days in a row!

  4. I don't have a problem with the food part but exercising is a major struggle. Good for you, Denise.

  8. Oh it sounds wonderful! It takes a lot of INCENTIVE for me to get to the gym where I live. Once I am set in a routine I almost like it - mostly because I feel results. But, once out of the routine, it's torture getting started again. I wish you lots of luck and eagerly await to hear positive results! And, I hope to see the nifty blue biking leathers!

    Have a great week.

  14. Way to go Denise. How fun to get new leathers. I hope they will have to be taken in more by the time the order is ready.
    Exercise is my downfall. You can do it.
    I think your cartoon is a self portrait. You are one busy lady.

  15. As a child in school, I was told that I had a lot of incentive. An insight that had more relevance to me as I got older.

  16. I just know this sketch is of your kitchen, Denise, because it hasn't any upper cabinets!
    Now don't go losing too much weight, or you'll have to get new leathers...again.

  20. Now that's what I call success - having to order new leathers!! Well done you!!! I'm very impressed - and it's always nice to have new clothes, isn't it?

    I do think you might have included a picture of you in the old leathers though! ;)

  21. Hello.
    Losing weight is never easy, but to have lost as much as you have definitely needs a few rounds of applause! Well done! I'd love to see you in your swanky leather outfit (smile).
    Thanks for sharing.
