New Year

Soooo. Last year was both interesting and boring. Now I'm looking at a new year and as a believer in a fresh start and fresh perspective, resolutions are my shit.


WEIGHT LOSS
So first up is the same resolution I've been making since I was 13. Lose weight. I am fatty fat fat and have been since I was a teenager. I don't actually eat high cal foods. But my body has trouble losing weight if I eat carbs of any sort. I can't eliminate carbs because my wallet wouldn't like it. But I can drop them low as I can.

For weight loss, I could write a book on what I know. But I also have Irritable Bowel Syndrome (lovely topic, I know). IBS means that I can't eat a variety of foods. Fruit and vegetables, wholegrains and dairy. Everything is highly restricted. The last time I tried a low calorie diet I failed because no matter what I did I was always starving.

So what's can I do differently? Well, I can try and keep all food after 4 to veg. This will give me a chance to feel sick if I have to or experiment with counters before work the next day.

But this is my final try. I'm 30 now and I've been having weight problems since my mid-teens. I have to acknowledge that with help and without it, success escapes me. So here's the second part to make this no-fail: I'm going to get private health insurance and if I haven't been having consistent weight loss in the year I have to wait, I'm going in for weight loss surgery.

Time to shit or get off the pot.

ART

I've always wanted to draw but I'm not any good. I started teaching myself around October last year and I want to continue until I get good enough to satisfy my urge to draw.

WRITING

More than a decade in fandom and I still haven't written anything for it. And this is from the girl who's been writing since she was 5 years old. I have a fanfic I started at the end of last year and my goal is to finish it this year. I don't want to post it until I've finished it since WiP's are evil.

TATTOO

Picked my first tatt. All that's left to do is save the money for it. I'm a total wimp with GAD so I'm sure the tattoist will love me. But I'm hoping I'm able to stand the pain since I want to get a half sleeve and a few other pieces around my body. We'll see how it goes.

BRAINIAC

So I'm not all that smart. It takes a while to get things stuck in my brain. But I've decided to pretend I'm smart and do a high intensity science course this year. Should be interesting.
