Snow, It's Time To Go...

Ok, so snow is pretty and it's OK for a little while and when we have it once in a blue moon, but when the UK comes to a standstill because of 6 inches of snow it's getting a little ridiculous. And more to the point being house bound is NOT good for WW, it is not helped by the fact that I have a little bit of a hangover and have just eaten all day, for lunch I'm now having pasta with a chicken tonight sauce, seriously that's a weird combination...tastes pretty good though! I NEED TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE!

I could be doing some of the mountain of coursework I have to do over Christmas, but I'm in too much of a bad mood to so instead I have spent the day watching TV. Not very productive. Whoopsies!

Another massive rant I'm going to have is about WW, and whether it is a diet or not, I personally don't think it is, it's changing your eating habits and the way you think about food, it educates you abut filling foods and how to make the most of what you eat. So when people say to me " how are you coping with you're diet over Christmas" and "what will you be eating over Christmas" it frustrates me, A LOT! I mean I eat and drink what I want on a daily basis, if I want chocolate I'll have it, but since following WW I have learnt about food, I mean I sometimes crave fruit, and I miss having fruit and veg in my diet. I can now see the difference between filling foods and foods that just satisfy you for a few hours. I will still be following WW even once I get to goal, that is not a diet and as my blog title says "it's a lifestyle change". So this Christmas I will be eating and drinking what I want and if I put on weight it's not the end of the world, I know exactly how to get it off again.  Rant over.

On a positive note, I went out last night at home, which is the first time since the summer as everyone is now home from uni, not sure why we went out in the snow, freezing was an understatement! But it was lovely to see everyone, and people commented on my weight loss which was great. And the funniest moment of the night was my friend face planting the floor after falling in the snow. I'm actually in stitches just thinking about it now! hahaha


A day without laughter is a day wasted <3

I should really be writing an essay!

So I have a 2000 word essay to write, by Friday and yet I'm sat here watching Crimewatch and blogging!

First of all, apologise for my absence in blogging lately, I've been so busy with uni work and working it's all been a bit hectic.

So.. WW, I lost 2.5lbs this week, taking me to a total of 38.5lbs! which is 2stone 10lbs.. sounds so much doesn't it?! Crazy times. The big loss this week may have had something to do with the fact I spent all day yesterday throwing my guts up( sorry for the detail!) It was slightly self inflicted but still.. Hoping to have another loss this week and then fingers crossed STS over xmas. We shall see!! But it's great people are starting to notice now, and I had my works party on sunday and one of the guys said to me I looked like I'd lost a lot of weight. YEY:)

Talking about the male species... seriously, are they from another planet?!
The one guy I'm blatnetly infactuated with is just so flirty but there's obviously nothing going to happen, I should really get over him but I can't...then the one guy who actually likes me, I blew off because I'm so obsessed with the guy mentioned first. And then there's this guy friend who I've been really good friends with for years, and we always have a bit of a cheeky flirt, and then there's the odd (ok a lot) of drunken texts that go on.. and I sometimes think does he actually want something to happen, because sometimes I think I would like it to happen... but then other times I just think he just wants the flirty side. I give up with males. I really do.

 On a more positive note... here's a photo of my in my dress from Sunday, It's 2 sizes smaller than the one I wore at Christmas last year, and to be honest that was probably a size too small for me but I was in denial.

A Day Without Laughter Is A Day Wasted <3
