    Thought I would put some thoughts down here...

    The realities of life

    • I love chocolate
    • I am nearly 40
    • I have had 3 children
    • I have a degree in English and Creative writing
    • I am going to be a grandma next year x 2
    • I have a good man
    • I have many good friends
    • I can fit into a size 14
    • I can sometimes fit into a size 12
    • I have pretty eyes
    • I have lost 26lbs
    The not so realities of life

    • I will give up chocolate
    • My friends wont like me anymore if I am slimmer
    • I will put on 26lbs
    • All my problems will go away if I fit into a size 10
    • Will Young will turn straight and take me away from it all

    Not really sure what my point is .. but I think I think its just about perspective :D

    This is a good post. Maybe we could learn a bit more about each other from this. I am 26 and have 2 children, one boy (7) and one girl (9months). I have a lovely partner and am finally happy after lots of trauma in my past. I used to think that if i was thin all my other troubles would disapear however this didn't happen. I think now that i'm happy in life and in myself, being slim again would just be the icing on the cake

    5 realities

    • Made it through my A-levels and into university!
    • I'm still with my boyfriend, despite the fact that I don't live at home anymore. It's actually strengthened our relationship :)
    • I am managing to eat healthily, lose weight sensibly AND be a student. (Deserve a big medal, yes I do)
    • I have the BEST JOB EVER!
    • My life will never be boring.
    3 non-realities

    1. Leonardo Di Caprio is going to propose to me.
    2. I'll fit into a size 6 t-shirt again.
    3. I will love coffee. UGH NEVER! EWW.
