I've bought a dress! You may not realise what a big deal this is, but it's the first dress I've bought in ages. I couldn't wear them, you see. This dress, it's figure-hugging and clingy, and I feel comfortable and confident in it -- sexy, even. I've studied myself from every angle and I'm so happy with what I see. No rolls of fat showing anywhere! I wish I could show you a picture, but although I've tried, I just can't take a clear head-to-toe picture of myself. However, some of you may see me wear it to one of next month's gigs, because it's so coming with me on tour.

After a few night's pouring over blueprints and doing some mental juggling, I've finalised the floorplan for our office move, and everyone in our department that needs a fixed desk will have one complete with all the paraphernalia that goes with it: the phone lines, the network cables, the PCs, the printers, the cupboards and whatnot. But most importantly, I've managed to secure us office spaces full of natural light, which we are sadly lacking in our current place of work. I've also managed to claim more space than we actually need -- no small feat when the whole building of limited space is moving to make room for 600 new colleagues who have had to vacate their premises because the lease was up and HP didn't care to renew the contract. I presented the plan to my co-workers this morning, and luckily there was only one person not happy with the space I had in mind for him, but then I swapped him over with someone else who didn't mind where he sat, and voilà! All done.

Chris Eccleston in Heroes: fantastic!

Then do what I did: stick to the South Beach Diet for the first 2 weeks (2 weeks is nothing; even without motivtion, you can do it), and then when the strict phase is up, just eat what you like but be careful with carbs. Me, I've reintroduced bread into my diet, but I rarely indulge in rice or pasta, and I never eat potatoes anymore. Above all, no fizzy drinks (I used to drink oodles of Fanta; now I haven't had so much as a sip in 3 months; and the strange thing is, I don't miss it at all). If it works for me, I'm sure it'll work for you, too. Just think of the look on your intended's face when he sees you coming down the aisle towards him in the perfect close-fitting wedding dress (yes, I know he loves you warts and all, or weight and all, but that's not the point) -- let that be your motivation!

WOO HOO! I know what you mean on dresses. Finding one that makes you look and feel fabulous is a truly beautiful thing. And good on your for making a plan that works!

My problem with most dresses of the Noughties has been that I could never fit my boobies in, or if I could, it would mean I was trying on a tent. The answer seemed to be in stretchy fabrics, but then I wouldn't like the way they'd make me look from the back, where there'd be these tell-tale bulges spilling over my bra. It's a personal hang-up: when I look around me, there are millions of women getting on with their lives wearing tops or dresses that do nothing to cover up those imperfections, that instead seem to emphasize them, and clearly think nothing of it; but me, I'd feel worse than naked going out dressed like that. It's my upbringing, I suppose; our mother always drummed it into us that we had to look our best at all times, and be proper young ladies.
