    Maybe I'm just really slow on the uptake but just been reading the benefits of morning workouts before eating anything and you can lose a shed load more fat by doing so and also advised to have a black coffee before it as it facilitates fat loss whilst conserving muscle... Any thoughts on this???

    If only it was actually all worth it in the end... I graduated in 2006 with a degree in immunology and toxicology and couldn't find a job so I'm a dental nurse now... Don't mean to rain on your parade or anything lol

    Awk teetiefunk - that sucks. Have you given up looking for work in your field? I know people who found themselves in jobs nowhere near what they studied/trained for and have found themselves really happy. Lucky ducks. Right now, I'm thinking more the pride and satisfaction of having completed it will be worth it. The piece of paper alone is motivating me - just. And, aside from the stress and another summer of the kids pulling my hair to drag me away from the computer - I love what I do. I really am passionate about it. Also, I'm well used to being skint now LOL

    Astrea - oh goodness, you'll have your work cut out for you dissertation or not! Sound tough what you've ahead of you! I'm sure you'll be grand though. Get the head down and do what needs doing! ;)

    Yeah black Rose I am loving being a dental nurse and I wish I'd done it straight from school but i guess I have the knowledge and experience my degree has given me... I'm not looking for anything in science now. The bit of paper and the graduation day is brilliant tho you will feel a million bucks!

    Well, it's been a few years since I graduated but yeah, I felt really proud of myself then - and just think, for this one I'll be skinny! WOOP WOOP! :D I haven't even been planning on attending the ceremony but if I get all skinnied up I'll have to! lol

    It's good you love your job, it's a minority that can say that! And your weight loss has been great (just checking out your ticker :D) - good times for teetiefunk! ;)
