Somebody stop me!

I spent the alternately showery and sunny afternoon trailing from shop to shop in the company of db2305, who is entirely to blame for this:

She said I had great legs in them -- though in truth, I didn't need much persuading. They may not look it, but they're really comfortable; the suede uppers velvety soft.

Of course, I watched the Doctor Who finale yesterday, and I was somewhat less than impressed. John Simm did a marvelous job as The Master, but The Doctor was mostly just passive and not enough use was made of Jack. Why bring him in if all you want to do is keep him chained to the radiator (or whatever)? The reference to the Face of Boe made me laugh, though honestly, I don't like to think of Jack morphing into a giant head that has to be kept in an aquarium 500,000 or more years into the future. Good for Martha though, to tell The Doctor she needed to get out. Perhaps she can now start going out with Tom Milligan.

In other news, I've now been on a diet for 7 days, and it's been remarkably easy so far. I've had nothing but green salads, fish, chicken and eggs for the past week, and though I can't say I've noticed any weight loss yet (mainly because I don't own scales), I do feel a lot better. I can just about complete another week of this strict regime before I have to go into hospital, after which I'll be decamping to my mother's for a while and will, of necessity, have to give up any chance of continuing with the diet. It's a shame, but there it is -- I can't expect her to cook and care differently for me than she always has.

Finally, happy birthday to desdemonaspace!

I'm kind of glad I gave up Dr. Who after hearing about the finale.

I'm glad to hear that the diet is going well, and that's it's been easier than you thought it would be. *hugs*

Yup, really easy. I've not even been tempted by the giant cake that found it's way into our office through a grateful customer the other day. ;-)

I am so pleased that you are finding the dieting easy enough. Even a couple of kilos off makes you feel better - and will be a couple of kilos your ankle won't have to carry around post-op. And if you avoid the 'white carbs' at your mother's - but eat everything else as normal you are likely to find that you carry on losing.

'white carbs'

That wouldn't be rice by any chance, would it? Because that's what I'll be getting mostly for two weeks - rice and more rice. Mum's from Indonesia, remember?

It's funny though, I always thought I wouldn't be able to live without coffee or chocolate, but I can! I don't even miss them at not, not even a little bit.

I thought of that after I hit post!

I would guess that if you can avoid the bread, puddings etc. and just eat the main meal rice then that's as good as you can do. Eat salad or fruit for any meals/puddings that you can, and stay off the chocolate now that you are off it, and I bet you won't put any back on, anyway.

Says this rather rotund wombat who has been stuffing herself with cakes and chips over this last week......

Woaaaah! I love those shoes! Then again, I'm Guess obsessed! Own two Guess bags, a watch and I have my eyes set on a pair of boots! :-)

They are pretty awesome, aren't they? I'm glad I bought them, even if I won't be able to walk in them for a good few months...but I'm sure they'll keep till next summer.

I hope you'll get your boots soon.

Thanks! It sucked (I moved) but it's over.

Those are gorgeous shoes! Will you post pics of you in them? *hint, hint*

Might be a while...I'm going into hospital on Monday; after which, I don't think I'll be able to walk in heels for a good few months yet.

It seems silly really: for 2 1/2 years I've bemoaned the fact that I couldn't wear most of my shoes, and just when I find I can again, I'm agreeing to surgery...

I like those. I looked at some similar to them yesterday while I was killing some time (and I should know better than to do that in a shoe store!)

Glad the diet is making you feel better. It is probably doing something to the weight too, but just a little boost is a good way to start and to convince you to keep going.

Well, at least you could walk away without making a purchase! That's something I've never been able to do in a shoe store ;-)!

Who said I didn't buy something? They had a buy one get one free sale.
Jul. 3rd, 2007 09:17 pm (UTC)
Ha! I'm sorry, I must have misread you. Two for the price of one, eh? You've done alright for yourself!

So tell me, what did you get?
Jul. 3rd, 2007 09:33 pm (UTC)
I posted some pics in my lj of the ones I'm wearing today, the others are brown leater wedge sandles.
