    My local radio station just phoned me earlier this afternoon and told me I was shortlisted with 2 other people to win all expenses paid tickets to The Brit Awards this Wednesday. They were going to phone me at work at 8.15am tomorrow morning to let me know live on air whether I was winner or not........excited is not the word to describe how I felt!

    But.........I then thought about it all a little more and decided that the thought of a 1st class train journey and overnight stay in a top London Hotel with a night of free booze and food would all just be too much for me right now. I want to be slim more than I want to spend a night with Take That!!!

    Sooooo....I just called them back an hour ago and told them to take my name off the shortlist and give the tickets to someone who will enjoy the experience more than I could.......

    I think I am now officially either round the twist or extremely dedicated!?

    I do feel a teensy bit proud of myself though.....lol!

    I feel like it at the moment hun....but then I imagine in another weeks time when I've SS'd solidly without falling off the wagon how much more mental would I have been to go along for 1 night and get myself out of the zone and mess up my ultimate goal of being slim and happy!

    The temptations away from home would have been just too much for me to cope with right now.......
    I really really want to be slim and happy! :D

    :rotflmao: Yup....I'm definately mental........so my daughter keeps telling me.....in between cries of "But muuuuuuuuuuuum David Tennant is going to be there and you could have got his autograph for me!" lol!

    I know it sounds daft but if I was going to go to a glitzy bash like this I'd want to be at my goal weight too....not some big embarrasing blob......there will be plenty more opportunities when I'm at goal weight (its what I keep telling myself at the moment!) and I'll enjoy them all a heck of a lot more when I feel good about myself.......

    My mum also said that there must be something even bigger and better lined up for me after turning this opportunity down.....(weight loss?! lol!......but I'm secretly hoping it will be Enrique Iglesias battering my door down! :eek::D)

    1 night of decadence or a lifetime of being slim and happy.......hmmmmm not much of a choice when you think of it like that? :)

    I queued up overnight for tickets early last year to see Take That in concert and ended up with 5th row tickets....definately close enough to feel droplets of sweat....hehe....I'm a huge Take That fan too hun......I've been to every Take That tour siince 1993 and even have a Take That tattoo on my foot (hurt the most out of all my tats!)......but I must stop thinking about how close I just came to rubbing shoulders with them and get chugging my water.......:cry:lol!

    I remember when I went to one of their 1st gigs at the Mall in Stockton when They released 'Do what U like', I queued for hours & I got right to the front, (arm's length away) Mark came over near us as the speaker was where we were, he cocked his leg on it & kissed his 2 fingers & slid them down his body (as he does in Once you've tasted love), then turned around quickly, as he had no top on, I got a face full of his sweat, to be honest though I can still remember what it smelt like, It wasnt like BO, it was lovely.. (Awww how sad do I sound)

    Last year I took the morning off (well a sicky), I had the phone in 1 hand & the mouse in the other, constantly phoning for tickets & trying to get them on on-line, it was a nightmare, I had my b/f phoning & trying on the net too, but no joy.. :cry:

    A few months later my aunty died & I was TRASHED, a few days after the funeral keith my b/f said he wanted to cheer me up as I was feeling down, he gave me a print out of take that tickets for men arena, awww how I cried with Joy.. :D

    He even came along with me, I loved every minute of it,
    He even came along to Newcastle this year with me too, although it was a better atmosphere at Manchester last yr, he preferred the songs this yr & the album is more mature..

    Awww I love talking bout Take That, It makes me smile.. (God How SAD do I actually sound) :confused:

    Have you ordered their new DVD? I cant wait to see it, you actually see them have an ice bath before a gig, awww Just the thought... Mmmmm Yummy.. :drool::drool:
