    Weekly weigh-in

    Hi everyone, I would like to join you guys in your weekly weigh in. I need to lose alot of weight :sad:. I do comfort eat especially when I'm stressed and this whole moving to Oz thing seems to be nothing but stress :arghh:. Not too sure how i'm going to cope with the summer holidays coming up and me not working and the kiddies home. I did lose 5 stone in eight months a few years back by going to slimming world but as soon as i gave it up the weight went back on. I did rejoin recently but have given up again due to not being able to stay to class. I have done it before and know I can do it again if I put my mind to it. watch this space......... (fingers crossed)

    The Bridge Clinic

    We had our medicals done at the end of May at The Bridge Clinic and like everyone else has said they are very friendly, couldn't fault them. We arrived about half an hour early and said the kids could go and play in the gardens.......i took one look at the gardens and thought they would be fine in the waiting room :laugh: such a lovely place.

    Newbie needing advice

    Hi Gill, My hubby is a mechanic, our agent lodged our 176 visa at the begining of March this year. We are in the process of gathering paperwork to change the visa to a ENS 121, but seems to be taking longer than we thought. Probably end up getting our 176 granted before the ENS is ready to lodge lol :laugh:
