Well, I've put on a lot of weight in the last few months - i.e, since hooking up with Seamus xD Thanks for saying all that stuff about the BMIs being rubbish, I don't feel like I'm obese or anything, but I know that I am overweight and VERY unhealthy. I mean, I've not smoked since September and that's helped, but my diet's taken a real turn for the worse recently. I think both me and Seamy could do with losing some weight, just to be fitter and healthier and actually happier as well. I've talked to him a lot about it since then because it's really upset me, and we've decided that things like drinking water or squash instead of Coke all the time, and cooking real meals (with vegetables!) instead of eating take-aways and ready-meals and stuff are all things that are really easy to do, and that will probably make a big difference. We walk everywhere anyway, because neither of us drive (I don't know how, and he can't afford to keep a car or a bike even if he could scrape together enough to buy one in the first place), but we don't really go anywhere - he lives ten minutes from my college, where I also live, and his work is only half an hour's walk away.
However! I really want to go walking in the countryside, because I miss it terribly, and he says he's happy to come with me and try and be healthier together rather than just me doing it. I'm also determined to get back into rugby, especially after talking to my dad about it. He's coached women's rugby since year dot, and says that an experienced player, especially one who can play right across the front row, would be really valuable and that they'd probably be more than happy to have me. So that's something
I've made a list of things that we could do, changes to make and things to be aware of, and I've also made a list of things I used to do when I went a bit mad a while back and basically stopped eating and started puking. That's what I'm really afraid of now, that I'll fall into an unhealthy pattern of behaviour again, but I think that with Seamy's help and as long as he's aware of what to look out for and aware that it might happen, it shouldn't be too big a problem.
So, here's to being healthy and happy!
