Hi everyone. Today I went and saw the movie "Cloudy with a chance of meatballs" in 3D. For the first time in a long time, I didn't buy chips or pop corn to eat, felt good! However, let alone the 3D part it was amazing as always! The story of the movie was quite touching and I thought it triggered some important themes. First of all, for those who haven't seen the movie, the story is simple, a boy with a name of "Fliends" like inventions and always trying to invent new things. He lives in a town where all they eat is "SARDINES"! After all his failing inventions, he invented a machine that can create food and it does so using water. That invention becomes very popular in his town since they now can eat buggers, ice creams, pasta, meat etc just by ordering it through the machine! At the end the machine becomes unstoppable and it creates food with big portion sizes. The myer of the town tries to take advantage of the little boy and his creation to gather tourists to come to the town so he becomes rich. At the end of the movie, the boy had to stop the machine himself as it becomes uncontrollable and it could destroy the world with "the storm of food!". That was the movie briefly. However, underneath all the laughter, I sensed another moral to the story. The idea that "bigger isn't better!" People in the town started eating like crazy all the food that was avaible to them so they turned hugely overweight. Also the children in the town were getting tommy sickness from eating alot of junk! I felt that the movie was kind of communicating that you may spend your whole life wanting to do something that people could remember you for, e.g. like the boy in the story who wanted to invent, but in doing so you forget sometimes, your moral and the true nature of your goals. You doing your goals for the wrong reasons and you harming others. We all find ourselves in situations where we have to choice between our own desires and what our family and friends want us to do. And we realise, sometimes early enough to fix the damages, that we been striving for, is causing others to dislike us somehow. Another moral of the story, or what I thought, that you can spend you all life wanting to do something so bad but when you do do it, you will stop it yourself for the sake of others. Over all I enjoyed it!
If you have seen the movie share your thoughts about it?
P.s. there was so much food in the movie and I didn't feel tempted or craved any! Woohoo!

Well, I've been around for a while now, and haven't lost any weight yet!
I don't blame the site, of-course or anything else except myself!
I've been very stressed and busy with university work, that I didn't exercise as much a I should and would liked to!
Final exams are coming soon & during the holiday, i'll sure to post some of the
interesting topics I learned from Psychology about life & you can make connections to your
life as i did when I studied them!
I just waked now, (4:50am), I had to do some reading before my two lecturers
for 3rd year of my degree! But instead I turned the internet on, and sat on the couch!
I had to get up and do some excerise before showering and leaving to university but i feel the
I used to enjoy getting up early & "move it" on the treadmill because that was
the only thing I could do! Now I could do so much more outside my home!
Not just this in me, that have changed, many and many other aspects
People, now, started to notice the new way and approach towards life.
"Hey, life is good" "Just enjoy" "Enjoy every moment that passes by you"
I feel as though I'm gaining myself back, the old me, the happy me!
Bye for now!

Hey to everyone who is going to read my blog.
To start with i'll introduce myself very simply.
I'm a 20 years "young" lady who lived previously a life of pain, suffering and
tears. I've faced so much difficulties and many situations that changed the way I
look into life, love, friendship and family!
At a young age (14) I lost my first love! Well you may say, what one knows about
love at this young age. But I know I did! When the only ones who you feel
warm & secure with, die infront of your eyes in a car accident, wouldn't
you change your mind about life? I started to believe in fate, nothing else in
our life we can change, and as a consequence I started eating to death! When
people around me started noticing the "fat" changes i blamed it on genetic!
I come from an "overweight" family, where everyone is overweight! But I knew
that I wasn't before, and although I do have the tendeacny to gain weight fast
due to this genetic factor I can still control my intake of food and avoid
being overweight. But I didn't. I felt the need for food. I wanted the security in
food. I knew that food is always there for me everytime I need it!!!
Then, fate came into play again. We moved to Australia from the
Middle - East. and again food is the only thing that doesn't change
from a country to another, right?
Not to mention, the death of two of my best friends due to various reasons.
Not to mention, the feeling of homesick.
Not to mention, the hardness in feeling as you don't belong
And the list will go on!
However, I lived another personality with people!
No one saw me ever crying "only my big teddy bear!"
No one heard me complaining or talking about anything that bothers me
I always kept it to myself. Because I felt like this is the me that No one should
know off! It is me from deep inside and if i started sharing it with someone
I may lose them and then what was the point?!
Nevertheless, I was successful at school, got top marks and graduated and
currently in my third year of my psychology degree. I choose psychology,
specifically for many reasons that I may share in another blog sometime.
University/ college was the changing step in my life! I started gaining my self.
I realised how much life could be different, the changes I could make and the
slow death I was driving my self into. I started exercising, cutting on junk food
and lost almost 15 kilos by motivation and willingness. But when I arrived at my
current weight "76 kilos", life wanted to come into play again and take
control! I lost the only and one very close friend! At that point, I realised the
truth, I realised that the way we live our life is the way it works out! I didn't
blame it on life this time, I blamed it on the bad habits my friend had,
drinking too much, smoking too much and many other problems! I realised
there is no turning back for me, I've to get my life back, I've for once to think
of what is coming ahead of me, I've to believe in myself from the deep inside and
not just fake it infront of people. I've to too many things!
And i found Sparkpeople by browsing the internet. And now I'm motivated
I want to lose the weight and look different and feel different by the time I finish
my degree. By the time I enter "Real life". By the time I feel ready
to be loved and love again.
