Thanks all. I'm pleased about it, naturally. Must admit that I do really need to talk tonight. Really not doing too good emotionally, and very much need the support of those I feel closest too. Think I'll be fine soon though, hopefully.
Hope you don't mind me saying but you really seem to be going through the wringer at the moment don't you prec. Bit of Stella for you to put a smile on your face.x
Don't mind at all. Not been my best of times, I'll openly admit. Hopefully things will pick up again before long, though. Not given up (and don't intend too this time), so that's somat. Not letting things destroy my progress this time!
My local won't serve Stella, would you believe. This is due to its reputation locally, or rather the reputation of the males of my generation who tend to binge drink on it and get a bit unpleasant. Wouldn't mind a nice pint of John Smith's, I think, nice smooth pint to relax. Much as I dislike drinking when I'm feeling down, I think I could do with one.
As an aside (and a bit of an anecdote), I've never been a violent drunk...opposite in fact, in that I get giggly and tell everyone my life story when drunk. But anyway, was out with a mate one day for a few and was going to catch a train home when one lad who was more than a bit drunk came up to us looking for a fight. Looked at me and you could see he was thinking about it, until one moment he just looked up in awe and said "bloody hell butt, you're tall ain't you". Probably thought I was going to eat him or something. lol
I'm feeling quite a bit better this morning. I'm still dealing with a little anger to be honest, but I was able to clear the air a little & talked things over with a friend. Actually was the last person I'd expected to be able to talk too, and it was such a weight off my shoulders to catch up with her and see that even at the worst of times some things will eventually right themselves. That's what I needed really...a close friend just to be there and let me pour my soul out to them. I do tend to bottle up so much, and having released it I do feel that a burden has been lifted. So all in all I think I'm starting to feel myself again.
I am now also no longer single. Had a good talk with a friend of mine earlier, and one thing led to another...and I asked her out. Had a chequered history so I'm very nervous about it all (don't want either of us to get hurt and damage the friendship), but I've loved her from afar for some time now and I really hope this is it. Nothing ventured nothing gained though, and it's brought me out of depression I'd gotten in. Lets see where it goes.
I think you may have an alcohol fixation...I meant TV Stella lol
Sorry hon, only just read through properly. Well done, you have to grab life by the wotsits once in a while!!
I have an alcohol problem. I can't afford to go to the pub!
Ta. Very early days, but I'm happy and hoping this is the one. If I'm honest I'm not very good at this sort of thing, so hoping all goes good. Just reeling in being happy for a change. Long may it last!
And I raise a drink to that lol

Thanks all. Definitely feeling myself again, so it's all good.
Must admit that I'm having a night off from dieting tonight. Was my dad's birthday on Thursday and will be mine in a week & a bit, so we're combing the two and going out for a meal. As we're both curry lovers, it's an Indian...and a birthday meal is the only time other than Christmas where I'm not going to worry about points. Not going silly, but going to relax and get back on it fresh tomorrow...maybe with a few gym visits to make up for it.
Well that curry night was naughty...on top of my 58 dailies and the 44 weeklies I had left, I used up an additional 76pp yesterday. Definitely got to be good now this week, and am aiming to get a sts this week. Did enjoy it though, and it was nice to celebrate my dad's and my own birthdays...and chicken vindaloo was amazing.
Just been making some turkey burgers for tomorrow, from a recipe in a WW book we've got at work. Shall try and remember to take piccies of them once they've been cooked. Very simple recipe really...a pound of turkey mince, 6 spring onions, lime zest (I used lemon as we had some left from Xmas still), parsley, and 3 cloves of garlic. Just shaped into 4 patties, and to be fried in cooking spray & served in a burger bun. All for 8 of your best pro points (counting the bun). Thinking you could do the recipe with any mince, and next time I'll probably have a go with lamb mince...as lamb is by far my favourite vegetable.
Hmm like your way of thinking. Could we be wrong to think if all sheep eat is grassy type green things thats makes em a veg??? Me thinks it does
If we reclassify lamb as a veg, does this mean a leg of lamb is points free?? Could live with that!
Yep think it does. Me too. And to think I have always disliked veggies....how strange lol
