New Year, New Start.


I'm back with a revamped blog, a new name and lots to share!
So it's been about 9 months since I last blogged, and wow quite a lot has happened. For numerous reasons I haven't "felt like blogging" but remembering back to when I did I realised it actually helped me quite a bit so I have made it one of my new years resolutions; to blog at least once a week!

It's quite weird that my last post back in March was about getting back on track after Christmas (how did it take me THREE months?!!) This year - 4 days after Christmas I am sorting myself out. Ok so I'm not being a complete weight watchers angel but my head is (near enough) in the right place and I'm ready to get back on the wagon, that is come Tuesday. So everyone says "i'll start again tomorrow", but starting on Tuesday has it's reasons. I'm going to London for the weekend for new years eve and come Tuesday I will be back living in my own house where I do WeightWatchers best. Living at home + me + Weightwatchers = 9lb gains (that was last years, I'm yet to step on the scales this year!)

So what has happened since march? Well weightwatchers wise I think I've lost about another 2.5 stone since then, leaving me with 2 stoneish to go to goal, and I am being totally impatient about getting there and I want to be there NOW! Which in a weird way is part of my motivation.  This year I also went travelling for a month with one of my best friends, something which was amazing, and I definitely would not have done it when I was my fat old self. I've made it to me third; and final year of uni; how I will never know, and I am totally in denial that I will be graduating in roughly 6 months and should probably think about a "proper job". My "personal" life, or my love life in better terms has been eventful to say the least but that's totally for another post as it is far to long a story; but I do believe that without my weight loss it would not have been so eventful and I guess in some weird way it is good as it is teaching me more about who I am and becoming confident in myself.

I've set myself a *few* realistic (I think) goals for the new year (some weight watchers related, others not), and I'm going to share them all with you in the hope I actually stick to them:
* Track every day even if I've stuffed myself
*Go to the gym at least 4 times a week
*Blog once a week
*Finish (and start ) uni assignments before the night they are due in!
*Get to goal in 2012 (preferably before my 21st and graduation; June/July)

After trying and failing for 40 minutes to add a ticker to my blog (any advice welcomed!) I will bid you all good night and shall report back soon with my post Christmas WI and the damage!
