December Goals Part I

Tweet In the spirit of a complete attitude adjustment, there are a few things I want to focus on this month that are not scale related. Part of those goals is to revamp the blog a wee bit and include my food and recipes a bit more (though I will never claim to be a…

Learn Something? Like What?

Tweet Why is it that every single time things just get TOO TOO much, I go for sweets and junk? . Seriously. You would think after SO MANY YEARS of doing this, I would get a real handle on things. Like, NEVER EVER going that route again. Why is it that I can quit smoking,…

And, we’re Back

Tweet After nearly one year of being on ProPoints (well, let’s face it I took a break for a few months because it was doing my head in), I can’t help but have mixed feelings now that the US/ North America will be using the program soon (and the UK already started apparently). . Why…

Chances Are

Tweet Chances of ever learning: 0 . Chances of ever seeing the back of 80KG: 0 . Chances of not feeling jealous when others lose 3,672 lbs in less than a year while I only lose 5lbs: 0 . Chances of not feeling fed up with this whole fucking thing: 0 . Chances of ever…
