Shadow Of My Former Self

Over the past year or so I have been losing weight naturally.. well I say naturally.. it’s partially chemically enhanced. About 2 years ago I was prescribed a new Diabetes drug. One of the “side effects” is that it helps promote weight loss. It does this by making you fuller quicker when you eat. Well that works to an extent. It didn’t do much in the first 9 to 12 months and I got very disheartened by it all and considered stopping taking the drug and go back to just taking Metformin. I was persuaded to keep gong and give it some more time. Well, another year on and I made a few alterations to the way I deal with my Diabetes.

Waiting For England

Here I am at almost 4.30 on a Sunday morning waiting for the England Vs Georgia Rugby World Cup fixture to start at 7am. I am just hoping that it is better than last weeks game.. especially as I am staying up all night to see it. Last weeks game was just a clusterfuck. The worlds greatest Kicker EVER couldn’t find his way between the sticks and it made the game far closer than it should have been. The only saving grace is that the Argentine kicker was just as oblivious as well.

So my gallery for today is a few of the best ones from my travels around or should that be my Tumblin’ around.

Shots of the Day – 17th August 2011

Today was a good day. I felt good, even after only 5 hours sleep. I don’t know what changed but I just felt energized, like my batteries had been changed and I was running on full power. I got a phone call from my CPN and we discussed how things are going, if I was having any problems with my medication, how was my mood doing. He asked if I thought we needed to meet up and catch up.. it felt good to be able to say no, use your time on someone who might need it a bit more than me (he mentioned that while he was off on leave they had increased his patient load quite a bit and a few other things that were taking his time.)
