The Biggest Loser: Singles

January 29, 2012


So this season of the Biggest Loser, as we all know, is all about singles. All the contestants are unattached, and “looking for love”. Makes for good tv I guess. Already there’s rumors of hook ups and some less than subtle hints at possible flings, and also, it’s a bit confronting in the way that […]

2011 in questions

January 17, 2012


I found these questions in a blog I follow and thought it was a cute idea. Here goes: 1. What did you do in 2011 that you’d never done before? Lost a substantial amount of weight. 2. Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year? I didn’t make […]

Double classes and anticipation

January 12, 2012


I’m so close the the 80s. Today the scales said 90.2. I’m a little frustrated, but I know it will happen when it happens. I just weigh myself too often I suppose. Probably a habit I should try to break. I really can’t wait. Saying goodbye to the 90s will feel good. Saying goodbye to […]

Goal setting

January 4, 2012


I’ve never been good at setting goals. I’ve never liked it, because I feel fearful of how I’ll react if I don’t make it. I can acknowledge the importance, however, so I feel like I should set a few. In three months: I want to have started uni. I want to feel focused and motivated. […]

Shrunk in the wash

January 2, 2012


Today my dad took me to Westfield to get some new clothes. I’ve been wearing old, pre-weightloss clothes for the most part, belted and baggy. I have a few new things, but mostly spare cash goes towards gym classes and workout gear. I look ridiculous all the time, obviously, but because money is so tight, […]
