Reasons to be Cheerful 30/01

I would like to start this reasons to be cheerful, sharing something I don't normally say on my blog. 

I HATE Thursday.

The reasons why is for another post. 

I will also say, this week, my car has also broken down! Unsure yet of just how much it's going to cost, hopefully the lovely mechanic that dealt with it last time can work his magic again, on my old banger.

Today, though, I have to get with the happy thoughts......ugh.

This week it's still with the lovely Becky, then *gulp* it comes to me for February (the shortest month lol) if you want to see her lovely blog, click on the picture and show some love! 

Reasons to be Cheerful

1. I have managed to buy myself an overlocker on eBay! Hopefully this should give the clothes, I plan to make, tidier and with a better finish. If you don't know what an overlocker is, here is a little youtube video, to show you:

(You only really need to watch the 1st minute)

2. Little As birthday, tomorrow. At least, I THINK I'm happy about it. My baby is 6!? Who the hell agreed to that!?

3. Breaking through a mental barrier! I have a weight, I will share it one day,  I sit just above it constantly. If I get to that weight, I sabotage myself, and gain weight again. I have written in the past about my problems with food, I'm an addict, and if it was drugs or alcohol, I'd get help. 
But it's not, so I don't.
This week ....... I got 2.5lb BELOW that weight!
This is huge. 
I feel really positive, and I'm going to watch myself like a hawk this week. 

I hope you have reasons to be cheerful, I'd love to here them!

  1. I like you am so affected by the whole weight thing. Just invested in a book about emotional over-eating as that is definitely my issue. I much prefer healthy food but if I get angry, stressed, I get all rebellious and eat the bad stuff.
    Celebrate the baby step of a loss
    Think of you often for what it is worth

  3. I am sorry you hate Thursdays and that your car broke down. Woohoo to the weight loss, well done. It is really hard to be strong enough to lose weight without guidance and I really admire you for trying to go it alone. Hang in there. xx
