Reasons to Diet #20 - Scales have not dropped





Number 20:

Today's first reason to stick to my diet is that the scales have not dropped much on recent weigh ins. It makes me really fed up. Sometimes, the weight staring back at me is so harsh, that it puts me in a bad mood for the day.

Sometimes it doesn't bother me what I weigh, as sometimes I can block it out. Then I weigh in and see it, and realise I have been kidding myself that I have been dieting, kind of half halfheartedly trying instead of really trying, but the scales do not lie.

When the scales have dropped, it feels great. When they haven't, for any reason - sometimes it just doesn't budge when I have really tried, its a horrible feeling. My reason to diet is that I want the scales to drop so that I can get that good feeling, instead of the scales not dropping and how that makes me feel. 

Top 10 first songs :)

My other half's ten year old daughter asked me what sort of music I liked when I was young. When I stopped sobbing, having turned 40 last year -  I thought about it.

Here are my top 10 songs from when I was mainly in single digits:

  • Summer Nights (yes from Grease!)
  • NKOTB - The Right Stuff
  • Karma Chameleon - Culture Club
  • Every Breath She Takes - The Police
  • Buffalo Stance - Neneh Cherry
  • How Soon is Now - The Smiths
  • Push It - Salt N Pepa
  • Get into The Groove - Madonna
  • The Boys of Summer - Don Henley
  • True - Spandau Ballet
Actually not the most embarrassing list (bar the odd one in there!). It was quite fun thinking back to come up with my top 10. 

So what was the first song you really remember loving, and what is your top 10?
