Am I in a constant state of denial

Good Morning from Rainy Ireland, As I sit at my desk in work, I really wonder why I can never stick to my diet. This Blog was originally meant to be a place where I could write about all my goals and successes but the more I write a blog the more I realize that…

Rome is nearly Here!! :O

So about 6 months ago I started a Holiday Diet. I was so sure that this time I would be at my ideal weight for the wedding abroad (family wedding) but it is now only 4 weeks away and I have barely lost anything (except for my determination). I was thinking about this before I got out…

I am Exhausted

I am so exhausted. I am so exhausted of being exhausted. The more I think about being exhausted the more exhausted I become. I can’t sleep anymore. I am always tired. I just want to scream at the top of my voice and punch and break everything around me but I don’t because I am…

The Road Less Travelled

Vorfreude the “joyful, intense anticipation that comes from imagining future pleasures”. This is what I suffer from. I have always spent hours writing up a perfect plan of how much weight I will lose and how great I will feel… but never actually doing anything about it (she says as she writes this blog) I…

It feels like forever…

It feels like forever since I started trying to lose weight. Even when I was 16 years old and had a perfect figure, I still wanted to lose weight. Never happy with how I looked and always trying to reach one level better. I am with my boyfriend over 3 years and I love him…

Humans are greedy

We as humans are greedy and with greediness come’s the desire to be perfect. To be “perfect” most of us want to change a lot of things in our lives. The problem is that we often try to change everything all at the same time :O I have been trying to do this for years…

February Goals

I cannot believe how quick the last month has gone. We are already in February and by now most people have either given up on their New Year’s Resolutions or broke many of them. This year I was clever. I decided to take on more “To do” New Year Resolution’s rather than simply “give up”…

Lose the Fat

I finally booked Rome yesterday 🙂 I have a wedding there in August (Not mine!) and I am really looking forward to it. I do not want to go to Rome in the scorching heat and be carrying all this excess weight. I have approximately 6 months to lose as much weight as possible. I…

90 Day Challenge has commenced

So yesterday I did something that I would never normally do. I completed a 5K in an event. I am usually too embarrassed about how I look, how slow I will be, what people will think. But instead I focused on how I will feel after and tried my best to forget all my negative…

Why Don’t You Love Me?

For those that don’t know me: My name is Gabrielle Gilligan otherwise known as GG. I am 28 years old, 5 Foot 7 and approximately 260 pounds 😥 “You are not Fat… you have Fat. You also have fingernails but you are not fingernails” . I love that quote. Just reading it makes me feel good and makes me realize…

I have loved the stars to fondly…

In just over 6 months I put on over 3 stone.  What changed in my life? I got a new job which was quite stressful and required that I sit at a desk for 8 hours a day. Also, there was this guy that I really liked and got back talking to through Facebook. The more we…
