Too hot to blog! And some photo updates

I've been a little quiet on your blogs these last few days because of the sun! Not my fault! Blame the weather!

Well I feel like my mind is in a good place right now. I have decided to throw away lots of my old magazines (so far I've thrown away 90. I'm not throwing out my Vogue's because I love them! I feel like it's a detox. My thoughts are that magazines DO make you feel a little bad about your body. Glancing through them again I can see how unhelpful some of the articles can be (the one on cellulite really made me mad "work out every day if you don't want the curse of the dreaded cellulite". Dude it's cellulite, like all women get it.

I've also been thinking a little about who I am actually loosing weight for. For my friends? My family? Boys My society? Or just me? I think it's a little of all of them. But I know that I am my biggest critic.

I read the most amazing book which is one of the reasons I'm in such a good place at the moment. It's called 'Redeeming Love' and it's based on the book of Hosea. It's about a man who get's told to marry a prostitute called Angel. I HIGHLY recommend it. Anyway... what I've been thinking about is how if I do find a guy, he's got to like me for my inside...who I am...not my weight. Or else the relationship just wouldn't last.

Sorry this post is so here and there.
I figured out yesterday that I have been losing 1.3lbs a week, which I am SO happy with because it's slow weight loss not my usual 6lbs in a week.

The black and white one is me and my sister. I'm the one on the right. The other one is me and some mates, I'm the one on the far right. I don't have many pictures of me that I like. But I feel like since a lot of you have photos of yourselves up I might as well, since I want you to know me for who I am :)

I can empathise! I live in a place where it's virtually summer all year round; on top of that there's a heatwave going on so it's disgustingly hot and humid at the same time.

Good job on your successful de-cluttering! I can never throw things that I bought away; I always feel like I'm throwing out money. And congrats on your (slow and steady) weight loss. (:

I love the photo of your sister and you! (My two brothers are always making awful i.e. monkey faces into the camera when I try to take a photo with them.)

You are a pretty lady missy :-) I like the sound of the message in that book, because any true and meaningful relationship is based on who you are inside rather than anything as superficial as looks alone.

You are beautiful inside and out ;)

Thank you for sharing the photos. You really are beautiful just as you are - both inside and out. I also think it's great that you're getting introspective and questioning who you are losing weight for....

the raccoon picture is amazing, isn't it! it's one of my favourite pictures ever. my parents are difficult creatures, i was speaking to my mum on the phone today, and she came out with this little gem: "we may not be fantastic parents, but at least we almost always give you money".

yeah, umm, thanks, mum.

BUT, you're so pretty! you have such a gorgeous face. pretty girl. isn't the weather lovely at the moment? although it is too hot and i'm awfully sweaty, but i do like the sunshine. i'll be sick of it in a few days, ha.

andddd, i can't remember whether i said this or not, but i'm moving to falmouth. i don't know cornwall at all, so i've no idea where st ives is in comparison to falmouth! xoxo
