Where would I be without you lovely, gorgeous, fantastic people???!!!
All your words of encouragement and love have really pulled me through today. I'm already feeling more up beat and positive about things.
So on the work side of things;
Poppy: I do believe they have some sort of anti-bullying thing, but I can't prove anything at this moment in time. So that really is out of the question, at least until I have something solid.
It's unfortunate really. I've been bullied all my life for not being the "normal" skinny girl. I had a six pack at age 14 because of the rugby I used to play and they always taunted me for it. NOW women aspire to have these wash board stomachs... I had one of those once upon a time. But because of their comments, I started to eat emotionally, the weight went on, the condition came off and that's where I've stayed, slowly getting bigger and bigger.
The other unfortunate this is that, I had to leave my last job because I was again, being bullied by a jumped up, "Gods gift". Yes, I got him sacked, but he had so many other nasty friends that the looks and the comments didn't stop after he went. So I reluctantly quit.
I thought, that when you become an adult, these things stop. But no such luck it seems.
MW: thank you soooo much sweetie. You've reminded me of how far I HAVE come!! 1lb shy of 2 stone!!! Seriously!! 2 stone!! (SW is really 324lbs... wow... that number looks totally alien to me now!!!) Okay, that still leaves, like 10 to go, but it's a start. i've been eating pretty well, but have been munching on the carbs a bit much lately. So rice and pasta once a week respectively (although not too keen on pasta these days lol) And I have taken the first step to getting back into the exercise.
I have been going on the Wii and doing some pretty intense stuff. Like the free jogging... 10 minutes worth and I done 3.5km's... and that was on the hottest day of the year!! So my heart really is in it.
The man thing has been brilliant the last couple of days whilst I've been feeling like this. Sending me swimming on Friday, even though I really didnt want to. Massages, cuddles, a sholder to cry on. The usual. But what I think I really need is a really good cuddle off my mum.
but no chance of that happening any time soon. Partly because their behaviour towards me at the moment is just... well... horrible and the fact she lives in Germany.
savynaturalista: That's the thing, I took this job because it's part time, 3 days a week (but only 2 this week. Thank you bank holiday monday!! lol) I've been on happy pills before and managed to wean myself of them. (They were a very low dosage) I think it's mainly the fact that I really don't feel the training we were given was enough and I've just got to the point where I wake up in the morning fine, but as soon as I sit down at my desk, my heart starts racing and i feel sick.
I am seriously looking for something else. Part time again, unless my dream job comes along at the radio station lol
1987: Thank you sweetie. I mean don't get me wrong. I've worked hard for those inches to come off... but the scale.... GAH!!! I wanna throw it out of the window!!
I set myself a goal today when I got up. That I would at least try to do level 1 of Jillians 30 day shred. And I got through it!
Yes, it was painful. Yes I sweated like a pig (eeeeew) but my god am i proud of MYSELF!!
I said earlier that I would do it everyday. But what with walking to and from work 3 days a week, I think I'll just do it on my days off and keep doing my swimming each week as well. As Jillian says, Injuries are not part of the deal!! I do love that woman... she's just.... WOW!!!
Anyway. I'd better be off. Must try to get a good sleep.
Again, thank you all so much for bringing me out of this crappy-ness and I'll try to keep you all posted as much as possible.
