Tuesday lunchtimes are earmarked for fat club.
The meeting takes place in a church Hall in a nearby town and although the " weigh in " isn't until 12.30 there is always a queue of fairly miserable looking individuals , lined up in front of the scales.
For the past month I always seem to find myself behind a middle aged lady who had obviously seen better days health-wise.
For over four weeks she had not lost any weight , and seemed rather disillusioned with the whole attempt at slimming.
I steadied her with an arm as she heaved her slippers off before the scales thing and in a loud stage whisper she gasped " Here's hoping ....I haven't had a sausage sandwich all week!"
I mimed crossfingers as she heaved herself on
And I couldn't help over hearing the leader say " Half a pound on I'm afraid"
The woman looked at me crestfallen
" AND I had a large poo before I left the house " she said with a sigh......
I will leave you with a couple more blogger entries for the flower show.. The first is a wonderful photo for the photography class "relaxation" ( yes bloggers can enter everything and all entries will be posted back to them) and the second is another entry in the International Novelty Veg/ fruit class...enjoy
