    I quite like the idea of a diary so this shall be my personal outlet. Lol.

    It's kinda heartbreaking to think that if i hadn't given up SW in March and i carried on, i would probably be at target by now. But hey - life lesson learnt.

    So Week 1: -4.5lb's
    Week 2: STS
    Week 3: -2 lb's
    Week 4: -3.5lb's
    Week 5: -4.5lb's
    Week 6: -1lb
    Week 7: ?????

    I've got my WI tonight so hopefully will be continuing onwards and downwards.

    I joined a gym last night, well a gym of sorts, it's a Curves 30 minute fitness centre which involves going on 9 fitness machines and dancing/jogging stations in between. It looks fun and i got a good workout last night so i plan to go to that 3 times a week (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays incase you're interested) to help tone up as i lose the weight.

    As i once read: You can make excuses, or you can lose weight. You can't do both.

    And i'm fed up with all the lame arse excuses i keep giving myself.
    So - here's to the first day of the rest of my life.

    I don't know why i'm feeling all motivated today but i won't question it haha! xxxxx

    Welll done Hun!!!!

    A diary that contains your thoughts and feelings is a good way to make yourself heard. You can look back on it all and think that this is a part of your life that you can move on from and help others understand what you were going through at that time.
    Glad that Curves worked out for you in the end!!

    Yeah Thanks :)
    Well considering i want a Slimming World cover when i get to target it'll help to keep a diary of sorts i can use in my article haha!!

    Curves was good. And it feels kinda nice to say "I'll be at the gym tonight..." considering i haven't been in one in YEARS purely because of embarrasment... xx

    Well done for joining curves, it sounds much better than a regular gym, full of variety.

    I am hoping to get some vouchers from the Dr's to help pay for a gym or something. I like the idea of a pay as you go gym.

    I don't mind at all, because it's not me - it's them.

    This is by far the quietest office i've ever worked in, no one talks to each other unless they need something or are talking about work. There's one woman who talks to herself and she doesn't like me for some reason, won't look me in the eye and KEEPS saying my name wrong even though i've corrected here a million times so i've given up.

    I asked a guy in here why it was so quiet and he said "Is it? I hadn't noticed" There's only 8 people in here and they are all from completely different walks of life, spose they have nothing to talk about. I haven't said one word out loud in here today other than "Morning"
    It's like i'm doing a sponsored silence!! Haha xxx

    sorry your office is no fun. I worked in a great office, there werent many of us and we were all different ages but we got on well. When we had temps in we always made them feel really welcome, i still keep in contact with one actually. It seems that they are being quite rude, either that or they just are part of a quiet office. Do they talk among themselves and ignore you or do they just not talk.
