    >Maintainance!

    >No loss again this week. Which actually I guess is a good thing.  Because I means that I. Am. Maintaining. My. Weight!! I’ve lost 23lb since July and I’m keeping it off.  Yayness.  Maintaining even when it’s accidental and happening instead of continuing loss, rocks. I would, however, love to lose another 5lb this year. All content copyright Emma Crees, 2006 – 2012 unless otherwise stated http://writerinawheelchair.blogspot.com

    >Cryptic Entry

    >It’s been, what, maybe, three months? since my counselling ended. And once in a while I get to missing it. And also once in another while I spot a way in which I benefited from it and managed to make positive changes to my life. Today is both of those “once in a whiles” all at once. I can’t talk about specifics because, as you’ll know if you read regularly, I signed a confidentiality agreement at CAB. Well possibly I could as this doesn’t actually relate to a client but I am also trying not to rant or moan or generally write about people who may read this. Or to…

    >You know things are about to get interesting…

    >…when you go up to a group of people in Starbucks and go “Either you’re going to think I’m really crazy or you’re the group of people I’m supposed to be meeting.” and one of them doesn’t so much as reply as take his t shirt off Ok, so it was to show that underneath he had his radioactive yellow Municipal liaison shirt for NaNoWriMo as  proof that they were actually the people I was meeting. I haven’t laughed that much in a long time.  It was brilliant. How long is it until November?!  I want the madness to start now… (even tho it sort of did, LoL) And I…

    >Everything still remains the same…

    >No loss this week. No gain either. I have been really doing well (I thought) this week but lets just say that I had suspected my body wouldn’t show a loss this week for various reasons.   My waist measures exactly the same today as it did on Sept 19th which I again am not surprised by. Hopefully things will be working properly again by next week and I may see some progress.

    >If…

    >It’s just before 6.45 and I have a friend coming round at 7. This is going to be my blog carnival entry for this week… IF I get it done in that time frame (yeah, had to get that If in there…) An idea I’ve been thinking about a lot lately is how much my life would be improved if people thought about what they were saying before they said it. If people would stop insisting that my life must be so hard. I met a new work colleague who asked if I can drive. I said no, but that it doesn’t bother me because I live five minutes away…

    >Worth it

    > “Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets.  So love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones who don’t.  Believe that everything happens for a reason.  If you get a chance, take it.  If it changes your life, let it.  Nobody said it’d be easy, they just promised it’d be worth it.” How brilliantly apt and wonderfully just right for today is that?!  Love it.

    >A HTML of a weekend

    >OK, so most of this site design is actually CSS and not HTML but I couldn’t resist using that title! Kind’ve a play on words, so to speak. I’ve been working on this new layout every day since Thursday and with it have learnt how to do several new things with WP and also some CSS which I’ve not worked with before. I am beyond pleased with it and very, very excited. It’s kind of hard to believe that it’s just the basic Kubrick theme seriously hacked to pieces and put back together with extras and in a different order. In case you don’t know what Kubrick looks like, we’ve…

    >Work in progress, again

    >I’m currently giving this blog a huge overhaul and redesign.  So please excuse the fact that I’ve been changing my theme about every five minutes and the fact that in places it’s a mess of code. I’m very excited because I figured out how to do several things new with the layouts. All content copyright Emma Crees, 2006 – 2012 unless otherwise stated http://writerinawheelchair.blogspot.com

    >Week four?

    >I think it’s week four of the Look Great in 2008 challenge, anyway. I’m down another 1lb for a total of 23lb now.  Which I’m pleased about.  I haven’t had time to do measurements and I’m sneaking on at CAB now so I will do them later and add them in. I’m trying to come up with something of a plan to allow me to stop feeling like I’m floundering and treading water and allow me to actually work on this again.  Otherwise I will not be looking great in 2008, I’ll still be working on it.  I think the plan will involve weights, some of the goals in my…

    >I come bearing gifts…

    >…of milk! I decided to do a spot of online food shopping and arranged a delivery from Tesco for this afternoon.  They were here even before my delivery slot started so they get lots of brownie points for that. They brought everything I ordered with two exceptions which they told me about. And they brought me an unexpected “present” too… 12 pints of skimmed milk. I didn’t order any milk. They didn’t charge me for it. If I had ordered milk I would have ordered 2 pints of semi skimmed. but no, it’s just there… 12 pints of skimmed milk. No rhyme, no reason… just milk, milk, milk, milk, milk,…
