Keep at Your Target Weight Forever


Gail Hanlon from Is This Mutton with some of her healthy eating and diet books

Today I'm talking about keeping weight off once we've lost it. Weight loss is, I think you'll agree, sometimes the easiest part of it.  We're usually fired up and have a particular diet plan and regime, and, if things go well, we lose the weight.  I've done it many times.  But it's keeping the weight off that's tough, because if you're not careful, it comes creeping back.

What to Wear For a Picnic: Style Not Age Challenge


Is This Mutton blogger Gail Hanlon in casual attire for a picnic:  Bowie t-shirt, striped paperbag trousers, gunmetal wedges and Gucci sunglasses
It was my turn this month to choose the challenge for the fearless five of the Style Not Age Challenge. I chose "picnic attire," or "how to dress for a picnic."

Family Time in Devon - and Link-Up


Over 50s blogger Gail Hanlon in navy and white polka dot jumpsuit and bright pink accessories

I'm back after a week off.  My holiday started with a trip to London to celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary. We went to one of our favourite places, Dinner by Heston. This restaurant, which is in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel at Knightsbridge, doesn't offer the Heston Blumenthal "tasting menu" but instead a selection of classic British dishes which have been revived by Heston. Some of the more adventurous dishes were missing from the menu, which was a bit more streamlined.

Loneliness, Finding My Best Blues, Link-Up

Gail Hanlon from Is This Mutton the over 50s style blog in Blue Jewel jacket and sangria t-shirt from Kettlewell Colours

It was a long weekend, with both a bank holiday and a day off on Friday, thanks to my company awarding us a day of care.  It was even sunny. But I'm dreading being asked if I had a nice time, and what I did.  The truth is, if it wasn't for my online life, I feel like a ghost drifting through life.
