Me and my girl and boy, raising awareness and acceptance of autism

It’s April, it’s Autism Awareness month and I’m upping the stakes.

I’ve been joining in with #WobblesWednesday weekly since the New Year, weight loss so far 1stone and 3lbs and it’s time to link my weight loss journey with my wish to make some money for @Autism (The National Autistic Society).

I’ve set up a JustGiving account and I’ll be matching lbs for £. My target is £500, not that I have 500 lbs to lose but it seemed a reasonable target for the next year (until World Autism Day, 2nd April 2014).

If you’re a parent/carer of someone on the spectrum, why not join me? Every £ raised is really going to help with the work that @Autism do, providing support and information.

Timing-wise I wish I was starting this next week as I’ve stayed the same, no loss and no gain. I’m surprised there wasn’t a gain what with Easter goodies and having the weekend off…but, it’s back to it from today. Focussing on what-I-know-works-for-me, upping the protein and veg intake, trying to resist the chocolate goodies.

We had a lovely day out at Legoland on Saturday, I packed plenty of food for the children as they like their own food, their own plates etc, unwisely thinking I’d be able to find a healthy option on sale. Wrong! I ended up chomping a cheeseburger (nice though it was) but so expensive too. £5.95 for a children’s meal as I wanted the smaller portion.

Renewed vigour from me. I’ll be updating my this blog every month on the 3rd and continuing with #WobblesWednesday weekly – I need to, things have gone a bit more public!

Linking up with Kate on thin ice and the other ladies, without their weekly support I wouldn’t even be contemplating this.

Good luck for the week ahead, below are my children, take a look at this post to read why photos can be deceptive.

  1. Well done you in linking your weight loss efforts and great cause. Don’t forget to highlight this on the Charity Connections group over on BritMums. Thanks for mentioning Wobbles Wednesday and so glad it is helping you. It certainly helps me to have that weekly accountability bit going on. Days out are always a challenge I find
