All dressed up... and don't wanna go...

The mere thought of dressing up and going to a party just makes me want to keep my head under the duvet. Parties at Christmas as pretty hard to avoid. There's one next door, at work, friends houses everywhere you turn there's an invite coming in! You'd think this snow would deter them! This time of year is the worst for me in terms of coping with the inevitable feelings of self conscious and the fear of "what happens when the small talk dries up!?!?!" In the back of my mind as I ring the doorbell and the butterflies play havoc with my stomach, I always have that age old diamond buzzing in my ears... "this time.. next year... I won't have to feel like this!" SIGH! GROAN! I'm even annoying me with that one! I need to devise a plan to make it through the adrenaline rush to make me more mentally and physically on my game and put a stop to the self sabotage! I need to formulate a plan.. From doorbell to doorstep... what to wear, how long I'm gonna stay and decide beforehand exactly what I'm going to eat. I, like most, worry about what other people think, so my trick this year is to put myself in their place. (which technically I will be!) .. I know I'll be asking about work, family, that dreaded "R" word, the weather .. all those things that I know I'll be too busy chatting to concentrate on what they are wearing and eating.. and I know "THEY" will be just the same... I've got to get over that super-sensitive self consciousness... Stand tall, stay positive and stick to the spritzers! Doll x

Weigh in #6

After the flu and the arse kicking I gave myself last week. Doll is down 3.5lbs! YAY!


Life is a banquet! (someone already at goal told me this!! sheesh!)

sample (SAMPLE!!!) this and you can fill your plate...

When you live your life fully, you partake of the banquet. This includes food! Food is not the enemy. Using it to fill your soul is a culprit!

By living fully, priorities straight, talents in use and passions engaged.. you can live a big juicy life! So .. time for Doll to start claiming whats hers! Time to stop using food to replace living... time to CLAIM LIFE!!
