First target reached!

Leave a comment

My first weight target was to lose 2 stone … tonight I achieved that  (although I must admit to being a bit surprised after I had Scampi, Chips and cake with Ros yesterday!).

My next target is 3 stone … and if I keep going as Im going .. I should get that in about 6 weeks… so by the end of May I will hopefully reach it!

My date went better than I had hoped… I have met a woman who is open and honest and admits to being impatient and grumpy at times (sounds like me!)

We had a lovely day together “a quick coffee” turned out to be all day… and we are meeting again on Wednesday… and I’m really looking forward to it. Perhaps this time I have found some true, sober and loyal… I guess time will tell!

And here I am watching everyone dying from Typhus on Little House on the Prairie….

I can’t sleep tonight, my mind is too busy.

I should have had a first date on Tuesday…but my dates circumstances with arranging a care home for her mum have resulted in it being brought forward to tomorrow (technically later today!)… and all the doubts that my ex left with me are raising their ugly head.

There is still the part of me that knows she twisted things to cover up her lying and cheating… and perhaps to ease her guilt… she never once gave a thought to the hurt and chaos she was leaving behind… and it is hard to understand why she chose to fool me for so long… but she did.

I think because I was so feeling so doubtful about myself led me into dating (briefly), two women who both had problems that I didn’t have the energy or want to deal with.

The hurt my ex caused me has gone… now I know that I never knew who she really was… and in all honesty, all I feel is sorry for her.

I know I have faced up to who I am… I know I have many faults… but I can accept them… I need to fall in love again… with me… I’m trying.

Took me a while

… but I got there!!

Another milestone …

I am feeling pretty pleased with myself today …

I decided to go for an early swim to loosen up (it really helps!) … and when I got to the pool, I was the only one there!

I completed my planned 20 lengths … and then thought … let’s do another 10 … by the time I had completed 30, I was still the only person in the pool… so decided to do another 10 …. and again … no-one else came in! … so I ended up doing 50 … although to be fair, by the last one I was just praying to get to the end LOL

I then came home and took all seven bags of clothes to the charity shop, came home and completed 2 tributes (although to be fair, it was just the intro’s and finish I had to write for both) …

I will be making a start on the spare room later … my brother Andrew picked up the double bed yesterday and my new sofa bed arrives on Monday … I needed room for my multi gym!… but Im off to pick up a second hand DVD Player so I can play my yoga and pilates DVD’s …. Im still thinking someone kidnapped me … who am I … LOL

Another clear out … I know I should be happy with my weight loss but it is costing me a fortune in new clothes LOL

Every single jacket (bar one… my favourite tartan one) and every coat has been replaced!

Today’s clear out!
