Christmas was quiet but enjoyable. I did get to see Home Alone at Dun Laoghaire Theatre’s Cinema Screen; reminiscing about the ‘Good Old Days’ prior to the Internet and 9/11. I even thought of a sonnet based on a joke I had created saying that if Kevin was a kid today he would eat the Tide that he bought. 🙂

New Year, same old me. 🙂 But I lost weight over the Christmas period. Now that I’m ‘Back to Porridge’, I am tempted to rationalise eating junk again to ‘celebrate’ my weight loss over the Christmas Period. My mind and I belong together. 🙂

This morning – Tuesday, January 08 – I had registered with another recruitment agency. Keep on plodding along. Plus, I applied for what seems like a role too good to be true in Cookstown. If it isn’t what it says on the tin, so be it.

My friend who painted my walls and ceilings did my guttering this morning while I was away in Portadown. That’s another load off my mind. I know that things will work out in 2019 if I ignore all the hullabaloo over ‘Armageddon’ following Brexit, lol.

Losing Weight (and Inhibitions)

Today I had a weigh-in from the Dietitian; first appointment since the day before I flew to Paris back in October; and all my hard work giving up sugar paid off. I lost over 15 Pounds and am now under 300 Pounds for the first time in over a Year. Next goal is to get under 20 Stone; 280 Pounds.

 

Today I had my Health and Safety qualification exam. Yesterday’s induction to Health and Safety went well as both the guy taking it and the Inspector keeping a tab on him were both mighty impressed by me and my attitude; first impressions count. 🙂

 

Now I feel that, in spite of the gloomy weather and the issue around my car; things are starting to get better.

Getting Started

I am a 36 Year-Old Single Guy living in Magherafelt in County Derry; originally from Ardboe in County Tyrone; and have been out of full time work since January 2007 for several reasons. During that time I passed the driving test; 23 July 2007; became Full-Time Carer for my elderly Grandmother; who is now Ninety Years-Old; and for the past Seven Months have lived on my own envisioning the next scheme I would create to improve my life.

 

I live in Praxis Accommodation and have featured on ‘Derry County Matters’ on IrishTV about the Garden in our Flats. The feature can be shown on http://tiny.cc/desmondontv (ours is the first feature on it)

 

I graduated in Computing Science in 2001 with a 2:2, but was unable to find work in that profession. Looking back, I was too full of entitlement to push myself back then. My Mum died of Parkinson’s Disease on 28 January 2008. My Father was killed in the Northern Ireland ‘Troubles’ on 29 November 1989. However I have grown stronger out of that adversity and refuse to consider myself a Victim.

 

I also have Social Anxiety, Asperger’s Syndrome, Depression and Schizophrenia. Plus, I need to lose wight.

 

More about me later.
