    2 days ago by traceysblog Can we all just pretend this is one of those "Tracey Passed Her Driving Test" photos on a driving school's website? I did not pass my driving test ❌ I'm going to be completely honest here. I'm raging and I never expected to feel so disheartened. So I never expected to pass. In fact I expected to fail.

I wanted to get to 9 stone 11.5 to get my 5 stone award with Slimming World but my body does not want to go lower than 10 stone and I've embraced that. My original goal was 11 stone. Then 10.10, then 10.7 and now I am happy and settled at 10 stone. I'm 5 foot 7 and am a size 10 in everything

    1 week ago by traceysblog And just like that another weekend has come and go. I've done my to-do list for the week and tomorrow will be sponsored by lots of fruit and veg () It's bloody good to be alive. Remember to focus on what you do want in this next week. It might not be your way of thinking but the universe is listening and in my experience (just mine, I know) you bring about what you think about. Act like you have it already, be grateful for all the good stuff and do NOT focus on what you don't want because thoughts
