Competition weigh-in is today, two more weeks until the competition ends! Good job to everyone for putting in their best efforts towards their goals!
Finally, I'm at 100 pounds, down 2 pounds since Saturday. I dreaded the scale, since I had a high-calorie day yesterday, but I ended up seeing my lowest weight ever. I decided my goal weight of 95 was too high, I'm aiming for 90 now. 

It was a beautiful rainy day filled with thunder and lightning, I am much better than I have been in a while. Life rushes ahead of me, changing constantly and dragging me along with it, but I felt in control today. Feeling loved by my friends, anticipating seeing J for the first time in two years, and the lack of any general issues make me truly happy. The major pieces are starting to fall into place, and once they do, I will glue, tape, nail them permanently, so my life stays put together, not torn apart.

I hope everyone has had a lovely day!

Kate- Thank you so much for your kind words. You're right, I shouldn't aim for perfection in art, wanting to capture the world perfectly ruined my passion. I think I'll start drawing again. Thank you for commenting!
Thin or Not- Thank you so much! I practiced drawing that flower for hours, so I didn't get it right on the first attempt. I hope you have a lovely day!

Cinnamon Brown- I can't find my paints, but I think I'll start sketching again. :) I am now inspired to get some green tea and chug it like crazy! My mom told me once that she could perform accupunture, I wonder if at-home treatments are safe. Thank you so much for commenting!
Bones- Thank you so much for the encouragement! I hope to start again soon. :)

  4. Great job on 100 lbs. What is your normal intake and exercise routine?

  5. wow! you're doing so awesome!! congrats on 100!

  6. 100 pounds is quite the accomplishment! Congrats! I've been reading your blog for a couple weeks now, and it's actually what made me decide to finally start a blog. Such a great way to connect to others that are feeling your pain and anguish. Also a great way to find those that will support you for what YOU want to do.

    Stay beautiful!

  7. Congratz on achieving 100 and its brilliant that you are feeling so positive. Whatever you do, hold on to these feelings, record them, and remember them in the tougher times. Stay strong hon xx

  8. OH MY! Well done! I'm proud of you :)

    Fat free love x

  9. Amazing! 100 pounds is AMAZING.
    <3 <3
    Can't wait until you reach your goal, love! xxx
    I can't weigh myself today considering my aunt's house has no scale. :(

  10. Condratulations on 100 pounds! You're amazing!

    I hope your life stays put together. You deserve it ♥

  11. Well done, Babe!

    Yeah, I took the pills. 12 cups a day and I might as well move my life into the bathroom, cause green tea is also a diuretic, so you pee like a racehorse!

    The trick with accupunture is knowing the precise location of the accu-points. The trick with quitting smoking is the DESIRE to do so, otherwise you just set yourself up for failure!

    Hope you enjoyed the Matrix-fest! Those Wachowski brothers are brilliant! The premise of the trilogy is based entirely on the day and night of Brahma! These guys make Hinduism look so cool!

    Have a great weekend! <3. XXX.

  12. I am so proud of you!

  14. Congrats! You are doing amazing, and it is even more amazing to read about your journey through your blog. You have inspired me to start my own blog so thank you!!

  15. Hey Babe! Yes, Port Elizabeth to be exact! Our climate is Mediterranean. The summers are hot (78°F on average), but not as hot as inland. Pointless factoid: Our city is twinned with Palm Desert, CA.!

    We don't get snow here, only on the mountains, inland and in the high lying areas! Believe it or not, there's a ski resort there! I've never seen snow. One day!

    The intense summer heat gets to me, too! I always feel hungover in summer! Thanks for your support, I really appreciate it! <3. XXX.


Don't be shy, leave a comment. :) I'd love to hear your thoughts!
