That is all.

This week has been completely free on weight watchers.
I am currently on veggie sushi overload and have a wasabi headache.

Last Years Weight is Last Years Business

I had my first Weigh In of the year tonight, and i haven;t had a meeting since before christmas and I was feeling very ambivalent about the whole thing. On the one hand I was dreading the scales. I've been at my bingey worst, gorging on cake and crisps and GINGERBREAD, and so I knew there was little to no chance of me losing weight tonight. On the other hand I was SICK of my behaviour. I've been feeling greasy and bloated and sluggish, and I desperately wanted to get back on track.

Tonight I gained 2lbs.
2lbs is far from the end of the world.
Obviously it's not ideal.
But it's not the end of the world.

And I don't mind. That gain is the result of last years food, and last years habits.
This year I'm feeling very clean slatey.

I'm going to lose 50lbs this year.

Three posts in one day is excessive...

But I just had a MAJOR NSV!

In my first year at uni I bought a lucky bag off Lazy Oaf. One of the things I got in it was an AWESOME cartoon/geometric print belt. Which of course didn't fit. I literally could not even stretch it to the first notch.
Right now...

It's holding up my jeans :D

I might go and have a ceremonial burial for the old leather MANS belt I've been wearing for the last couple of years because it was the only belt that fit around me.

What a wonderful start to the year!

That New Years Blog Thing

2011's Resolutions - the big ones anyway (there's a lot of 'read this book' type little ones):

2: Graduate!
3: Make a real go of having my own theatre company!
4: Get out of my overdraft!

I've been feeling very inspired by the wonderful Leah who has lost 50lbs over the last year and so have decided to accept the challenge (not that it was issued as a challenge...but I'm taking it as one!).
An average of 1lb loss a week, with a week off for my birthday and a week off for xmas should have me 50lb lighter this time next year! That seems totally manageable. If you fancy joining me in this challenge join me here:
The Losing Year: 50lbs in 52 Weeks

Here is me now -

Breathing out

Sucking it in

Here's to seeing a lot less of me in 2011!

That Resolution Thing

Last years Resolutions:
1: This year I will get to goal - the exact weight will be decided nearer the time as I do not yet know what I will feel happiest at, but it will be within my healthy BMI range. 
FAIL:I got stuck in a massive plateau which has only started to shift since ProPoints started.
This year I have lost a grand total of 5 pounds. An average of 0.1 lb a week. Really I lost quite a lot of pounds put put them on again and took them off again for ages. Even so, rubbish. But on the plus side- I'm 5lbs lighter than this time last year!
2: I will complete at least the body test, if not training, on the Wii Fit Plus every day providing this is possible.
FAIL: 3: I will sell the clothes I have shrunk out of on ebay, or donate them to charity, as soon as they dont fit me. I wont fit them again - I will not have them hanging around the house.
WIN: this basically happened as planned!4: I will pass my second year at uni with flying colours!
WIN: partly. I passed 2nd year with a 1st, but i JUST scraped it by .1 of a mark.5: I will keep procrastination to an absolute minimum as regards Uni work, exercise, and housework.
FAIL: Pfft. This was a stupid resolution, how can that even be quantified!?6: I will reduce my reliance on asthma inhalers.
WIN: Quit smoking, actually sorted out what inhalors need to be taken when.7: I will learn how to jog!
FAIL: Well, I sort of know the theory, but the practice continues to elude me.8: I will learn to budget and thus not live in my overdraft :s
FAIL: I am still most definately in my overdraft. But I have taken a bit more responsibility about it now and am getting a bit better at not buying stupid amounts of unnecessary stuff.9: I will be a good vegetarian and avoid all gelatine, animal rennet and other animal byproducts in food which I've become much to lazy about.
FAIL: On the gelatine front I was definately a bad vegetarian... I made a show with jelly and haribo in it...10: I will drink water. Lots of water. Everyday. No excuses.
FAIL: Still nowhere near enough.11: I will keep this blog up!
I guess posting this entry is a sort of WIN...though I have been pretty neglectful...

2011's resolutions will be posted in the morning...
Have a good one!
