The world doesn’t want perfect! The world wants real! That’s what I tell myself and I know it’s true. They want to know it's not only their lives that are messy.
Twelve years ago today I started to blog about my life. #ProjectMe began years before sharing my story online, but the accountability to myself changed dramatically when I opened myself up to share the story of what it meant to live what I believed to be the formula to a joyful, happy and fulfilled life. […]
Retail therapy. I had no clue what that meant, as the fat girl. There's nothing therapeutic about standing in a changing room, under cruel lights and truthful mirrors. I didn't do retail therapy when I needed to have that girlie outlet, I did binge eating. Each time I needed a pick me up, I ate, […]
You are looking great, they say. How much have you lost, is always the question that follows. I have no clue, but those jeans that were lying in my cupboard for over a year ... I give my butt a little tap as I do a half turn and boast that I didn't have to […]
I had this realisation a few months ago, but knew that the time would be right when I could blog about this and not be angry at myself. When I first saw the picture of myself in a different light, I wept. I was scrolling through pictures after I received the new HP printer and […]
It's been an interesting week on #projectbody, which had the potential of ending on a pretty bleak note. Another 7 days pasted and I dropped 0.2kg. I started typing, 'only' but that's not being very kind to myself at all. I thought I was settled in not having any expectations, but it's tougher than I […]
What fun things totally freak you out? Is it just me or does anyone out there also hate the camera that's whipped out at parties? Does anyone else have the?censorship rule with their friends about Facebook or Tweeted pics? Who else avoids full body shots?? It's been long awaited and very much anticipated but one […]
I'm exhausted after a day that turned out to be more magical than I ever imagined it could be. I can't believe that my little sis is married and I am thrilled to say that it was one of the most beautiful weddings I've ever been too ... AND I caught the bouquet. World, meet […]
These past few days have been pretty memorable for 'project me'. It's not often that I get myself into a space that I battle to get out after a good dose of self reflection, a good chat with a friend or some ice cream. Granted, I didn't try the ice cream bit considering it's sis's […]
Well here I am, one whole year later, and I can't say that my life is anywhere that I had imagined or hoped it would be. The imagined part is better than I could have ever dreamed, but the hoped seems to be just as far off as ever. It took me years to even […]
I get to pick and choose anything I want to share with the world. I decide if I want to tell all my friends or none at all. It's my call if I mention it in a 'project me' post or if I want to keep it to myself. It's not what I choose to […]
For the first time ever I wrote an entire blog entry and deleted it. Why? Because it sounded like an agony aunt column and I didn't have an agony aunt day. Okay, some people might call it a little loopy, but I'm sure I'm not the only person who spends their day talking to themselves.
Injuring my back to the extend I did and watching myself surrender to things like medication, bed rest and still not having driven my car since the middle of August, I've really been faced with two choices: Fall to pieces or fight on. I think we've gathered by now that I'm the fight on kinda […]
I'm sharing the grossness of my skin because it's very?indicative of how I'm feeling today. I think the frustration, drained energy and?fatigue?has finally started to surface and I need to do a few things different. It's an interesting time for 'project me' and my me-ness! Over the past few days I have more and more […]
