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

I’m “Losing it for Autism” – join me/sponsor me!

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.
