First of all I just want to thank you all for your really sweet and encouraging comments!  You guys are brilliant and I can't believe I have 26 followers, it's awesome and if I'm honest might play slightly into one's narcissistic tendencies...

So I would firstly like to apologise to Sunshinechild for not following the SGD very well.  Today is meant to be Day 14 but after a 15 hour drinking session and a stuffing-of-face recovery period yesterday I don't think it's going very well.  I guess that I can't give up my social life because it's the one thing that makes me happy and I remember the awful awful days of seclusion where I would hole myself up in my house for an entire summer and I became scared of any social situations and just spiralled into depression...I certainly don't want to go back to that. 

So as the 'stuffing-of-the-face' suggests I didn't get a chance to do a weigh-in yesterday but today it was a very very very disappointing much work and then one day turns it all around!  Argh.  I'm not too worried in the sense that I've been constipated since Friday so maybe it's only a 1lb gain and a 'backed-up' system.  I've taken some senna tablets this morning so fingers crossed my weight won't seem so bad tomorrow morning. 

So the oompa lumpa outfit went down well and I managed to get excited about talking to some Colombian guys and may have spent a little too much time with them...I'm a bit of a flirt but when I'm drunk I honestly believe it's just being friendly...anyway I probably should have realised the latino macho syndrome where they believe if a girl talks to them it's a come-on, as I experienced this 24/7 whilst in South America.  So when they followed our group to the tiny club we ended up in I spent most of the night dancing with the girls and being basically protected from getting whisked away, it was fun though as I was so drunk I didn't even realise they'd come along with us...oops. 

Stay strong ladies, I'm off to a Gastro appointment at the hospital to see if I can get rid of this constant indigestion...mainly caused by my previous mia methinks but I'll leave it to the specialists to decide.

  1. Social situations are always hard, because there are so many unavoidable opportunities for food and alcohol consumption, but interaction is a necessity. Drunken flirtation is usually fairly enjoyable, and it sounds like you had a good night with your friends!

    Once I learn the sort of French that will woo a cheese salesman, I'll be sure to pass the knowledge along to you... and I've heard of Krav Maga, I only wish I'd been able to use it the other night! Perhaps I'll seek out a class.
