Day 100!! A centenary of blogging days!

Wow! I am so amazed and chuffed with myself! heh - and it feels so good to say this, as far as doing the blogging goes, I'm doing really well. :)

I am so not used to praising myself, that negative voice inside of me that tells me "I am not good enough", "I'll never live up to expectations", "why try you'll only fail" etc etc has been a constant in my life for a loooong time. But...over the last couple of years I have worked hard at replacing that inner voice with one that says:
"Yes!, You can do this!"
"You're a wonderful person!"
"I'm fabulous, and anyone who has me in their life is very lucky!"
"Try it! You never know, you might succeed!"
"Look at all the stuff you've done! You rock!"

hehe. :D
I wish there was a way to incorporate big smileys on here.

Another good thing this morning: the unreliable scales said I am exactly 300 lbs today! Ooooh! And my BMI is now under 50...yay!

Was just reading Alexia's blog Dimple Snatcher (Hi Alexia, your blog makes me smile!) & I'm going to join in the photo posting for the next 29 days.

This is my current facebook photo. And funnily enough it was taken a year ago too! :)

This picture was taken on a barge that had been turned into a restaurant/cafe in Birmingham, UK. Birmingham has lots of canals - it was (and still is) a big industrially important centre. I was there with my friend, G to see a wonderful amazing guitar duo from Mexico (via Eire) - Rodrigo y Gabriela, the day before at the Birmingham O2. That was a really great midweek trip for the both of us, she even persuaded me to have a go on a fairground carousel at the German Christmas market - me, who thinks I'm too enormous & too heavy for stuff like that... G is a fabulous person & I'm so glad she's one of my friends.
