UK News - Gay marriage: Peers approve legislation

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-23320624

“Peers backed a government bill paving the way for gay couples to marry. It is set to become law by the end of the week, with the first weddings in 2014.”


I was a little late as seeing this the day after but about damn time. Its..not perfect as there are still issues with forcing Transgender people to divorce the very people they wish to marry again, but hey this has been a significant step towards acceptable equality and inclusion in the United Kingdom.

Stuart wants me to make a bet with him, so he has been trying to get me to shake his hand so it can be official. So when he walked me to class after lunch today, he gave me a hug, and then grabbed for my hands. I start laughing and squirming away and as I pulled my hands back, he came foward and gave me a kiss. And then ran away. It was adorbable :) There are 3 things standing in the way of me liking Stuart. I guess I’ll try to conquer them one at a time. But I’m just not ready yet. Small steps.

I made my first trip to Planet Fitness today! I feel so accomplished even though it wasn’t an intense workout (small steps, right?!) I started with 15 minutes on the stationary bike keeping my RPM above 100 and then 30 minutes walking on the treadmill at 3.5 MPH. It kept my heart rate between 155 & 170. I’m feeling great but I’m also starving so I’m looking so forward to this shake right now! I hope you’re having an amazing day out there (:

The last 3.5 years of my life. The first picture is me at my college graduation. No idea how heavy I was, but that’s my heaviest. The one compared to it is 190, my lowest (in 2012). The third picture is me in November of 2013, probably my next highest (230) , and the last picture is me 3 weeks ago.

I’m done with this fluctuations. I’m ready to hit my goal and be done feeling as bad as I did at my highest weight. So close to halfway, and then I’ll be the lightest I’ve been as an adult.
