I lost 8lb!!! WOW! Actually lighter than I’ve been in months as been hovering around the same point and failing to get below.
Well aware the first week is often water weight or something, but at least I lost! Sometimes when I’ve tried really hard with my food I don’t lose or only lose half a pound!
Not expecting this next week, might even sts, but it’s a good start at least!

Happy Esther Day!
I have a massive fear that no one actually likes me, rather everyone is just politely tolerating me hoping I leave them alone
i wish more people said that being single is normal
and you’re not going to meet and marry someone
and that’s fine
and if marriage happens, it happens. and it’s not the next big ticket to check off in life’s checklist
because not everyone meets someone they want to marry. and that’s normal
you’re not broken or unfulfilled if you are single
Woke up yesterday with the start of a cold.
Today, it’s definitely a cold.
Sore throat and snotty nose (TMI? Sorry)
I would post a selfie, but no-one needs to see that stuff!
First of all, ignore the book snobs! I don’t think anyone should ‘age out’ of reading any kind of book. I suppose I have a ‘legit reason’ as I now work in children’s publishing, but I’ve been loving picture books, for example – the stories are cute, the illustrations are stunning and the authors and illustrators are incredibly talented people.
Did you know that 50% of YA readers are over 18? ‘Young adult’ now refers more to the age of its characters than the age of the readers – YA should be read by everyone. A good book is a good book. It’s always sad to see someone dismiss a book purely because it’s categorised as ‘young adult’ (but then we’re all guilty of doing this sometimes – I do it with the ‘fantasy’ genre, but I’m reading a fantasy novel at the moment and loving it, so I shouldn’t be so quick say something ‘isn’t for me’). YA is such a wide category that encompasses so many different writing styles and plots and genres. Keep on reading what you want to read! :)
