We all have our own pace and if we keep looking forward we’ll make it through....

Clearly I should have no trouble avoiding this meano-little device, who, by the way I have NEVER criticised for HIS weight (come on lets face it weigh scales are guys, they never know the right thing to say!!…) nope, I did not say a word, not even when I had to lug the husky fella across town back to my house… ...

Sat, 18 Jun 2011 06:40:23 EST Bad morning http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4294874 I was doing well this morning, all excited because I'd lost a little bit over a pound (yay) and was doing my morning toning video when the post man knocks at the door. <BR> Parcel (huh? I didn't order anything...) <BR> (Now the following is going to sound horribly ungrateful and bratty, but whether or not this is truly how this should be viewed I was, and still am horribly upset) <BR> <BR> A fat blasting yoga DVD <BR> and a stoner movie DVD (with that horribly annoying chick from scary movie... Mon, 13 Jun 2011 04:50:18 EST LET ME OUT!!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4276318 Right now I am stuck, all alone in the lab staring out the window on to one of the most beautiful sunny days ever! These days are rare! I'm already scientist level pale and this is my chance to get out away from the musty manky lab and walkrun my bum off!! But I can't yet, I promised myself I'd tick off a good few more things on my thesis to-do list before I'm allowed out. <BR> <BR> By which time...lets be realistic (this is Ireland after all) it will probably be raining...urgh. <BR> <BR> S... Sat, 4 Jun 2011 08:32:28 EST Welcome to Plateau Country, population ME http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4264386 This is the flat land where nothing ever changes. <BR> <BR> FFS!!!! ARE YOU ACTUALLY SERIOUS???!! I worked REALLY REALLY HARD last week, I allegedly burned over 3000 calories by exercise and you are SERIOUSLY telling me that it meant NOTHING?!! My legs are still KILLING ME and really nothing, nothing at all? not a single ounce? I stand there staring at that evil little LED screen on my scales as though expecting it to suddenly flash 'LOL, jk you lost 50 pounds this week go see a doctor just ...

Sat, 28 May 2011 12:53:11 EST A new form of terror...dun dun dah! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4254700 This dark grey morning, suspecting nothing, I innocently strolled into the Lab only to be faced with horror of shock horrors...an undergrad bearing gifts!! Now this can be a regular event after the undergrad lab project training but at the end of May?! AFTER the exams?! revolutionary! Worst of all she came bearing one of my greatest downfalls...Cadbury's milk tray....Cadbury's has (to my shame) been enough in the past to tempt me away from my vegan attempts and has even been my willing accom... Wed, 25 May 2011 05:07:25 EST First Blog entry!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4246662 Ok I'm not a natural blogger so lets just see how this goes... <BR> <BR> I guess the main reason I'm here is because I sick of feeling like the 'fat friend'. Also growing up with an unbelievably and naturally skinny sister hasn't helped, especially since her favourite (and trust me, well meaning) refrain for years was :' Well, your never going to be slim so just stop worrying about it!'.For too long now I have ignored my weight and total lack of exercise and just worn horrible support panell...
