    >Small Steps

    >No change with the weight loss thing today/this week.  Not at all surprised and very happy (beyond happy, almost) to be where I am with my weight at this current moment in time.  Still got a really long way to go but… I’ll get there. My Dad keeps saying stuff about how I need to lose more weight now because it’ll soon be my birthday and christmas and I’ll gain weight.  What’s the point in that?!  What will be, will be and I’m not going to be obssessed over my weight when I’m celebrating the fact that I’m getting old.  Maybe I will gain weight and maybe  won’t.  Who knows. …

    >Things I have been meaning to write about in detail, condensed into bullet points. I’ve been very down on and off for the past six weeks or so. Less so, I think (I hope!), than in previous years at this time but… i’m not very motivated and sorta feel like i’m heading to burn out. I’m not doing any days over christmas at all so I’m looking forward to a long rest. And my biggest energy/emotional/time sucking things at present finish this weekend so it should be better. The idea of Christmas isn’t easy this year though, part of me will be glad when it’s over. It’s my official birthday…

    >Emma, Emma, Quite Contrary.

    >I feel contrary lately. I can’t really explain it, I just do. Or maybe indifferent would be another way to describe it. Perhaps both contrary and indifferent, I don’t really know. Being disabled and using a wheelchair frustrates me at the moment. But it isn’t the fact I’ve got Cerebral Palsy and can’t walk that causes it. It’s the friend who likes to comment on a regular basis that I take “really a lot of medication” – I take two daily meds and two pain killers (two different sorts, I mean) as and when I need to. I need those medication; they’ve beneftted me a lot. But it has been…

    >Sneaking back into the TFTS challenge

    >OK so this is the first time in several weeks that I’ve actually participated in the look great in 2008 challenge over at Tales from the Scales. I sort of lost my momentum and every time I checked my weight, I’d maintained. It was somewhat discouraging. but this week the damn scale actually moved. Cue naked dancing and much “take that, bitches, yes.” I’ve lost another 1lb for a total loss of 24 lb since July. Mum said I was looking trim last week 🙂 And I had take away pizza on Sunday and chip shop last night so it’s all pretty good 😛 😆 Edited to add: this is…

    >I’ve been thinking a lot about perspective lately.  It’s been coming into a lot of things and I was going to write an entry about it.   But it’s been coming into so many things that I no longer think I can write an entry about it.  If I’m going to do it justice it’s going to have to be a series of entries. A lot of things come down to perspective in the end; I’m only just realising just how many. And also another thing that has been consuming my thoughts (although this time only since yesterday) is the concept of honesty.   As a society it seems that we aren’t…
