Best of luck to you! It sounds like you really have the motivation, so it should be no problem. And well done on already having lost a stone!

Thanks very muck, folks!
I'll be sure to keep y'all updated my progress.
In other news, finally picked up an O2 money card. I've got €20 on it but I've no idea what to buy for that amount- the shipping alone would cost around €15 if I decided to go for that Spongebob dufflebag I spotted on TruffleShuffle. I might do what the girl suggested and keep topping up until I get a balance of €100+ and then spree like a mad thing.

So, apparently I need to go get a massage - that pesky nerve I fecked up in fifth year is coming back to haunt me and is whats causing the rest of the problems, the shooting pains in arm and chest, which are causing my breathing to be compromised as other muscles are getting inflamed, causing heart rate to rise, causing me to panic and freak out. Seriously, I will never be able to forget working for that stupid supermarket.... Doctor has prescribed a massage. Its now that I really wish me and the Massage Therapist Ex were close friends....

I don't really like boys in that kind of uniform, berets are entirely not sexy! Girls always swoon over the fireman uniform if I mentioned my boyfriend is one, I think they have some unrealistic American stripper image in their head

In other words, I'm officially obese. Fortunately, the girl who consulted with me was lovely and helpful, explaining the whole plan to me and after some careful calculations, worked out that for my height and stature, I would need to lose a grand total of 10 stone to reach my ideal body weight, meaning I would end up as 11 stone 6lbs.
Personally, I think I'd be as skinny as Lisbeth Salender if I was that weight but I'm not the expert here so what the hell do I know. (That said, If I was that skinny, I'd so rock the punk look!)

In all seriousness, though, I'm hellbent on starting this 20 week course. It'll cost about €550 so it's time to raid my savings. I'm fed up with groaning everytime I stand up out of a chair or getting out of breath everytime I climb a flight of stairs. I haven't been skinny since I was 10 years old and I'm fed up of paying through the nose for plus size clothes instead of shopping in Penneys like a regular Jane Soap.
No more pretending I'm fat and fabulous. I'm ****ing sick of being everyone's "jolly chubby friend". I want to be able to wear nice clothes, run for a bus without collasping in a breathless heap and I want to starve off the threat of diabetes.
This program seems to be tailor made for me- I've tried everything else.
It's do or die time. As Yoda once said: Do or do not. There is no try.
On a brighter note, I discovered that since I was last weighted, I've lost a stone and I can now fit into my size 22 jeans again! *does happy dance* I've been watching my food intake all week in my food diary so this is a good start.
Wish me luck, folks.
That's brilliant! It's always a good encourgement to realise you've lost weight without even trying.. so onwards and upwards (or, in the case of the scales, downwards!) from here

The only advice I'll give (and it's advice I'll be having to take myself over the summer) is not to get discouraged if you don't hit your targets every single week. Your body will adjust, then readjust, and repeat to infinity. Just keep with it and allow for the occasional bump, because chances are, overall, the numbers will be going in the right direction

Good luck!

If you wear gel and someone starts fecking about with your hair it's really hard to fix, because gel sets dry and once it's dry you can't reshape if you know what I mean. You'd probably have to wash your hair and start again.


With the powder stuff it's fixable becaues it doesn't actually dry, but it's not wet either. Just takes time and effort. Be like you getting your hair sitting as you want it and me coming over and frizzing it all up. You can fix it but it's annoying.

Jane, I think I'm wearing similar colours to you at the wedding I've to go to at the weekend. Blues and teal, but anytime I've tried to wear green or blue on the eyes I look awful.

I've blue eyes so I will be using browns and a hint of golds. Failsafe, and subtle, and looks way better in pictures - bright colours can look very harsh and ageing.

If you had to absolutely wear brighter colours, a very workable shade is any kind of mauve/pinky tones.

I've got blue eyes as well. I put on a dark green eye shadow earlier to see what it's like on my eyes and it's nice but not sure if it will be okay with the dress. I wear glasses and they're red so I feel like they hide my eyes sometimes..

The green one on the bottom left is the one I tried.

i didnt even think about the gel staying in place...of course it would be hard to fix *idiot alert* i just assumed if it was knocked out of place you could put it back into place if that makes sense??
sorry i really dont have an experience with using gel in my hair

also sorry about the questions....i was just curious and i dont know why to be honest!
