Today was my first trip to Weight Watchers in about 6 weeks. They've moved the time and it kind of messes things up for me, but I wanted to go this week because last Friday was my one year anniversary of getting down to my target weight and I wanted to see if I'd managed to stay at a healthy weight for a whole year, which I've never done for years.

Happily, I made it! I'm 2lbs less than I was this time last year in fact, which is another little bonus. I got a little charm for my keyring to say congratulations and I'm feeling quite pleased with myself right now.

In other news, Shawn moves in on Saturday and his room is now free of all my junk - though I'm not sure how I managed it. I have thrown away a lot of crap, which is always a good feeling. I've rearranged my room, which will take some getting used to, but is so much warmer, I'm glad I did it. And I've completely redecorated the living room - I had a very busy weekend - and I'll post some photos at some point. I can't get over how much brighter it is now. It's beautiful. I also painted half of my bedroom - the other half will be done eventually.

I can't believe its been a month since I posted. Well actually I can, considering. The weather has been strangely gorgeous for the last few weeks and I've enjoyed being out in it. Sunshine and heat are strange phenomena to the British, so it's best to take advantage while you have the opportunity. You never know when it's going to decide to rain for 40 days straight.

I have lost 2 and a half stones now (35lbs), so I am super excited and looking forward to buying myself a whole load of new clothes very soon.

I am now off work for 11 days. \o/ I have lots planned actually, starting with heading back to my parents tomorrow. Monday will be spent painting my sister's house. Wednesday I'll be visiting [ profile] flakmagnet then taking the rabbits to the vet for their one year check up. Friday is the Royal Wedding and maybe I'm the only person in the country who cares, but I'm rather looking forward to it.

Naturally I was very sorry about Elisabeth Sladen who I grew up watching in Doctor Who and who made past seasons of this new series all the more enjoyable. I'm sure she'd be as excited as I am about new Doctor Who on Saturday though. I will no doubt have something to post about after that.

Work has been super busy and stressful lately, but other things have made up for it.

1. Last weekend I went home to see my family for my mum's birthday and had a lovely weekend. I took the rabbits too, who were as good as gold, even in the face of terribly rude taxi drivers and train guards.

2. I paid off a huge chunk of my credit card bill and I'm doing more overtime this month so hopefully it can be reduced again in a couple of weeks.

3. I have been writing quite a lot. I have a couple of things on the go that I'd like to get finished, and for the first time in a while I feel like it might happen.

4. I won £10 today at bingo! I've never been before and it was actually an enjoyable couple of hours. I was terrified of shouting at first, but if you've won, you've won. ;)

5. I finally reached my healthy weight at WeightWatchers! I'm so happy and excited. I still want to lose another 7lbs for m own sake, but knowing I'm at a healthy weight and that I've achieved something good for myself is such a great feeling. I'm totally motivated to continue now and stay healthy.
