When I had to ditch so many of my favourite tops… Some of them were just sort of “ordinary, do the shopping in” type tops, some of them had only been worn once or twice, because they were “Sunday best”, and we don’t often have, or go to, occasions when one does wear one’s “Sunday best” 😦 It took for ever to go through them all – I didn’t realise that I had so many clothes! (no wonder we had trouble putting the dry cleaning away!) But… everything went… well, not quite everything… there were a couple that I kept – there was one with cats on it that I’d never worn at all – it even had the shop label still on it… but it was too cute, and I thought that I’d keep it, as a memento of how big I used to be 😉 There were another couple I saved, too – because they were brand new too, and had never been worn – but they’d been a titch too small when I got them, so I want to try them on again and see if they fit now, or if they’re too big – in which case I’ll probably shed a few more tears as they go, as well, because they’re very pretty. My goodness, my side of the wardrobe looks like an empty cave now! However I’m not going to go out and re-fill it again, just yet – I still have a l-o-n-g way to go. Put it this way… I’ve lost 20kg since August 18th – when I lose another 2kg, I’ll be sitting on 112kg – and only half way to my goal weight. I’d like to get to 112kg before the New Year, but I don’t think I’ll be in the race to make it… however I do plan on being into double figures instead of three figures by the end of January. That, I’m pretty sure I can do! 🙂
I did a bit of Rifting after that – questing, not Dimension building, this time, but I didn’t get too much done – I was too distracted after the ransacking of the wardrobe… I made a couple of alterations to the Christmas Card List – I had two more names to add, so it’s not 17 people left on it, it’s 19 people left on it I debated whether or not to start scribbling in the Cards, but decided against it – yep, I was still too distracted (Hey! You try throwing out just about all your clothes, except for what’s on your back, and not be distracted! 😛 ) So… that was the afternoon pretty much frittered away… I went up to the lounge room to read, reached the end of my book and… it was a stupid ending! Yes, I realise that it was a “hook” for the next book in the series – I seem to remember the one before it ending in much the same way, only this one was breathtakingly inane! It goes something along the lines of: She: “You don’t like me because you never look at me!”, He: “Yes I do, but you deserve better than to be swept off your feet in the middle of a desert – I plan to do better” He: plants a kiss on her forehead and forces himself to step away from her. End of book. I mean… What??!!! What a wussy ending!! Now I have to wait for the next book to find out what happens next (no folks, it’s NOT a Mills & Boon romance – it has fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, chases, escapes, true love, etc…) I absolutely hate buying what I think is going to be a trilogy… and then a year or so later finding out that the author has just released a 4th book… and a couple of years after that, a 5th! (a bit like George R. R. Martin’s Game of Thrones!) Usually, if I know there are more books to follow, I won’t buy them until I read the blurb “… in the exciting conclusion to the xxxx series, by xxxx!” then I know that I’m going to get them all in one fell swoop.
Weigh-in this morning was very pleasant… It seems that keeping the sledge hammer next to the Cat Carry Cage under the desk is working! 🙂 Down to 114.5kg this morning! Hopefully it’ll be down even more tomorrow, when favourite eldest daughter will be over (so no Rifting tomorrow, I guess 😉 )
I might scribble in some Cards tomorrow morning before she gets here, but then again, I might not 😉 So tune in again tomorrow night to find out if I scribbled, or if I fiddled with Rift or graphics… Whether I went down a little, or a lot… or if I went tragically up, instead! The answers to these questions, and more, will be waiting here for you… 🙂
