    ok the good news is that the tenants have agreed to move out. Yay. A couple more hurdles to get through and hopefully we'll be unconditional by end of day this time next week! Fingers crossed. I'd like to get excited but i"ve learnt over time not to, especially when it comes to this house.

    I'm feeling decidedly porky today, I dont know why I dont just get my act together.... really. Is it that hard to eat better, to exercise..... really?? The fireman has told me he'll take me to bora bora when I am happy with my body. Well you'd think that would be a great incentive wouldnt you... and it is... but will I ever be happy with my body. Ok so I need to start focussing on me in a bikini in Bora Bora eh!

    OMG just went up to weigh in and weigh 56.7kg... I am NOT HAPPY.

    I think for your height, the weight is good. I'm just a bit more 57.72 kg. But, i'm also a bit taller, right?

    I'm thrilled for you about your mom's house sale...I'll keep my fingers crossed that it all works out. I've had the experience of accepting an offer that fell through a week later, so having to go back on the market in a house we were living in with 2 very young kids at the time. Not fun.

    Bora Bora...that's some pretty fine motivation, if you ask me. Funny thing, I was 57 kg when I graduated high school . Not sure that would be as realistic in my 40s, but who knows?

    Awesome news about the house - I hope everything works out and you can be done with it finally.

    Bora Bora sounds like enough motivation for me but you make a good point when you say "will I ever be happy with my body?" Perhaps you need to make a more tangible goal like getting to a certain size or weight where you know you feel good?

    Mmmm, Bora Bora

    Is the weight thing about the numbers, or something else? (That's a weight I don't even aspire to achieve - I was 63kg as a slender teen, and when I got to about 58kg during my divorce I couldn't stay awake all day. Lost my periods, too. Anyway, that's beside the point.) I was wondering if your dissatisfaction might be reduced by something other than your scale weight? Like lifting to get some tone?

    Hah, maybe you should ignore me - after all, from my 92kg position in the world I'm very invested in what the scale says

    the scale weight is really mostly irrelevant....sure I could lose a couple of kilos (as my goal weight has always been 55 kg) but I am still flabby at 55kg. Yes I do need to get lifting I think, but with the shoulders it just doesnt seem at all do-able. Or is that just an excuse I'm making. Certainly the right shoulder has for the most part come right, but the left shoulder is badly impinging at the moment, I'm getting the wincing pain when I take off my clothes or reach out for something. Clearly I need to go and get an ultrasound on it just to check it out and then maybe I'll see the specialist and get a cortisone shot in this one, just to reduce the pain. However if the last one is anything to go by, the cortisone shot will help for a bit and then I'll still be going through a degree of hell until it all just settles down of its own free will. sigh. I think the shoulder problems are all some deep psychological thing to do with the family issues I'm having... I do feel a huge responsibility on my shoulders at the moment. perhaps getting rid of the house will help.

    I've decided not to worry about weight or trying to eat sensibly until christmas. I'll be down at the beach for a week, walking and being busy tidying up and sorting out stuff at my mum's and I'll be eating nice salads and steaks and stuff and trying to knock a few kgs off both myself and her! Also I want to see how she goes on a no wheat diet for a week. Of course while I'm away I'll probably double my wine intake... well a girl has to stay sane doesnt she!

    back to bora bora for a moment... you would totally think it would be good motivation wouldnt you? so why isnt it? I do want to go there though, cause it really just looks so idyllic... and romantic.. I'm a sucker for romance

    not a lot to report just yet... the house sale is looking fairly positive. We've had a builders report and there are a couple of issues we probably have to address, but otherwise it is starting to look promising. Which of course makes me nervous as I get all excited and then let down, so I dont want to get all excited if you get my drift.

    Just had a gluten free lasagne for lunch which was quite delicious! My fireman is turning into a very good cook.
