It's my birthday!!!!! Yay! I'm going to London for a lovely meal at a Gordon Ramsay restaurant with my lovely friends and then I'm going to get drunk and I DON'T CARE! Being the sad singleton that I am, I'm listening to Stevie, followed by Altered Images which I do every year and which, I won't lie, makes me very happy.
In other news, I lost 2lbs this week. It was ever so slightly a cheat because I'd been on course all week to get that loss, then when I weighed myself first thing I'd only lost a lb, but then, when I went back a couple of hours later, off it had come, so I'm taking that thank you very much! I did a spreadsheet earlier in the week to calculate how long it would take to meet my ultimate goal (and smaller, sooner goals) and I should be well into a 'normal' weight range by July 2012. It seems ages away but it's really not is it. The first proper goal to reach is obviously my Lowest Adult Weight and that should happen mid-April, which is thrilling!
So then, I've lost 2lbs, then a further 1lb, total 4lbs. Not massive but every week I clock up (or should that be down?) a loss I shall be happy.
I think my head is in the right place now. The new Points Plus or whatever it's called is helping, I have what feels like a crazy ass number of points now and exercise seems to earn ridiculous numbers too so it feels much easier than before. I'm hoping for a 2lb or more loss next week so I'm back under 300lbs and then this time I WILL NOT GO ABOVE THAT AGAIN. I WILL get to my L.A.W* within the next 12 weeks or sooner (giving me a target of just under 2lbs a week) and I'll try my darnedest to get to -70lbs by my friend's wedding at the beginning of September, which is *checks diary, does calculation* by jove, almost exactly 2lbs a week, eek!
I've been thinking about what I'd like to treat myself when I reach this goal and I've always wanted to own Vivienne Westwood clothing and this wonderful dress goes right up to a UK20! Yes it's a lot of money, but I'd be so proud of myself if I achieved my goal I'd just go for it.
I also blow and hot and cold all the time about wanting a wrist tattoo. I have a design I'd love to use, I'm just a bit of a chicken, both pain wise and permanence wise! Long time in the future to be thinking about all this too hard now, I'm sure there'll be some rocky times ahead!
I had a lovely weekend, didn't bother tracking but then, I never was going to, but I don't think it's made a huge difference.
I weigh on Fridays and I was 1lb down which I was mostly happy with. I think it's a lie that people can look at the scale and go 'YAY A POUND!' (perhaps unless it's your last pound to lose or you've had a horrific week of eating) but it's a start and I shan't worry it wasn't more :)
In other news, I met a lovely lovely boy on Saturday but was too chicken to do anything other than ramble drunkenly at him and hope he'd make a move. He didn't and now I'm left feeling ragey that I'm so rubbish with men being that I'm so affected by the thought that if I had made a move all he'd have done is go 'AHAHA BUT YOU'RE FAT!', despite the fact that before I spoke to him, he'd been lingering about for about an hour to the point that even my friend noticed and basically shoved me at him*. Ugh, I am ridiculous!
Nearly a week of the new year has passed already, wowzers! Doesn't time fly when you're...um, sleeping...
Yes it's been a funny old week. Every has gone back to normal and in my state of unemployment I've remained the same. However, apart from Monday which was a Bank Holiday and therefore doesn't count, I've tracked every day and had two good hour long gym sessions. I didn't go today but spent over an hour on my feet mooching around town so that counts for something. Back to the gym tomorrow though.
I have a weekend of socialising coming up which won't do my tracking any favours, but frankly I feel in the right mindset right now and my housemate is also dieting so I don't think this will knock me in anyway.
