Part Four: Group love

Before you start reading it’s probably a good idea that you recap on Part One (here) Part Two (here) and Part Three (here). By now you know the drill. It’s gonna be a long post. Get your cup of tea ready. (As before my ‘lightbulb moments’ will be in red.) It’s now 16th April 2016. I’ve been … More Part Four: Group love

Gone to charity

Well. I have a shedload of clothes. It’s now 11pm on Sunday evening and after trying on a lot of things and making (what I felt) were some tough choices I’ve put the following aside for charity. These items range from 3XL items down to some unusually large XL’s, and from 46-40in waist and chest … More Gone to charity

Ticketty Boo

Thanks to the miracle of WordPress yesterday evening many readers might have discovered a phantom menace of a post in their inboxes. The post was no ghost however. It was in fact a work of lyrical genius. This moment of intellectual enlightenment captured in print was finely crafted, interlaced with wit as well as erudite … More Ticketty Boo

Keep going

Taking the pressure off myself a bit yesterday resulted in something wonderful. Sleep. Beautiful, delightful, invigorating and refreshing sleeeeeeeep. I was so wrapped up with worry and stress that I hadn’t noticed I wasn’t getting enough of it – and that this was probably layering itself cumulatively on top of other negative thoughts. Somewhere along … More Keep going

Be more kind

Firstly – thanks to everyone that contacted me after my last post. Secondly – I apologise if for the most part I’ve been less communicative than usual. I’ve not completely emerged from my ‘blue period’ this week – but today I definitely feel a little better. Not only is it Friday but in between periods … More Be more kind

Yay for maintenance

I slept like a log last night. I wasn’t stressed or worried about losing weight at all – which I’m honestly not sure how I feel about. I already miss the anticipation a little bit of getting a new, lower number in my book – because now I have a range to adapt to rather than a … More Yay for maintenance

A new objective

So – now I have a new challenge in life. Weight maintenance. It’s certainly not as sexy or attention grabbing as weight loss but (in every respect that counts) it’s now become my most important focus above all else. If this is to be compared to evolution then it feels akin to Neanderthal me overnight … More A new objective

Snowdrops in Hatton

I’m a little achey after the up and downhill of the end to end walk in Malvern on Sunday. It’s currently precisely midnight on either Monday evening or Tuesday morning (depending on how you view it) and I’m lying in a warm bed within an unusually warm house whilst the world outside turns into an … More Snowdrops in Hatton

Success not donuts

This morning I got out of bed after waking up early and reading for a while. I couldn’t get back to sleep so I decided that I’d go out for a walk that was a bit longer than my usual route to the office. It was a nice day for it! There’s no denying though … More Success not donuts
