A follower?

I have discovered that this blog, which has not been posted on for nearly a year, has a follower. And not wanting that follower to die of boredom, I have decided that maybe I should post something for them to follow.

When I went back to Slimming World after a long time away on 20 April 2009, I weighed 15st 8lb. I lost nearly 2 stone and stopped going because "I can do this" I thought without having to spend £5 a week for the privilege of being weighed. However after a rather stressful few months and feeling rather fat I decided to go back. Tonight, my 4th week back I weighed........... yes you've guessed it 15st 8lb.

A couple of days ago I watched the film Julie and Julia - in case you don't know what it's about it's about an american woman who wants to be a writer, and is also a huge fan of the cook Julia Child so decides to work her way through her famous cookery book about french cooking. And whilst she is doing so decides to blog about her journey. Eventually her blog is picked up by the New York times and she is offered a book deal.

Maybe, if I blog daily, word will spread and I'll get a book deal and earn thousands of pounds and never have to go to work again.

Some stuff about the stuff in the blog


Very new at this blogging lark, so forgive me if I get a bit befuddled. User name is derived from my maiden name of George and the fact that by the time the Olympics are held in the UK in 2012, I will look as if I could compete. And not as a sumo wrestler.

For starters there is only one blog with contain my thoughts, but this might evolve into 3 or 4 when I work out what I'm doing.

In the main it will cover my slimming journey, my quilting exploits, my get fit and stay fit campaign, and my photography. Not forgetting my recent TrollBead obsession.

Should I ever get a lovelife you might get glimpses of that as well.
