100 Days of Selfies: Day 41 – 50

The last ten days have been kind of tough for me. I hit my goal weight, which was really exciting but also really kind of unsettling. I think most people have a mental picture in their mind of what they look like and mine just doesn’t match my actual reflection anymore… which has made me feel kind of weird. I am sure it will pass soon enough but as you might see from this round of selfies, I have been a bit more introspective of late.

Day 41

Two weekends ago we were at Centre Parcs for Mr O the younger's 30th birthday. They have all kinds of cool activities there including an obstacle course high up in the trees. I don't like heights but I was determined to do it. This is my pre-activity scared face. I am pleased to say that I got through the course with no drama and that the 250m zip-line over the lake at the end was a blast!

Day 42

I had to take out my nose ring to do the obstacle course but I never managed to get the ball back on the end of the ring when I put it back in and then I dropped it down the drain... oops!

Day 43

When I came back to work on Tuesday I had been gifted a new laptop because my old one was not repairable... unfortunately the new one had loads of problems so I had a nightmare getting going. This is my frustrated face after the second blue screen of the day!

Day 44

As anyone in England will probably know the rugby world cup is underway. On Wednesday evening South Africa played the USA and won 64 - 0. I was most pleased on the train home

Day 45

Here I discovered that the trousers I bought about a month ago are way too big and it was just one of the many things on that day that bummed me out

Day 46

I decided on some dark lipstick to go with my dark mood and my desire to reembrace the 90s. I look so much like my mom in this picture.

Day 47

My red hair is kind of my trademark but I am not sure if everyone realises that I dye it at home out of a box. It's very glamorous.

Day 48

The best remedy for being in a funk is spending some time with a good friend. On Sunday I went for a long coffee date with my friend, Neil, who listened to all my whinging and made me feel better about everything, hence my big smile.

Day 49

Day 50

Yesterday I went on my first reward lunch with my new team to celebrate a very successful project. We went to Duck & Waffle in the Heron Tower. It was well exciting because it's the highest restaurant in the UK so I decided to glam up a bit

  1. Your nose ring looks soO lovely on you face! You totally look like its been there for years! You
    have the perfect nose for piercing and the little silver hoop compliments your pretty face. I’ve been wanting one for years, but just haven’t done it. Looking for guidance about your sojourn having it done and experience wearing a cute little nose ring.

    Wonder if you might drop me an e-mail to ask some questions.

      Hi Angie! Thank you so much. I had my nose pierced in 2006 so I actually feel naked without it. I’m happy to answer any questions but I don’t share my email address. Really sorry but I’ve had bad experiences. You can ask me on here or twitter at abbiosbiston. Abbi

  2. I really like your makeup on day 50!

    1. abbiosbiston

      Thank you! A bit of red lipstick is always a good thing!

  3. Okay, you brought it up first so I can say it and not get shot.

    Lady, you have lost so much weight and you are still looking amazing! What’s wrong with your goal weight? Congratulations on hitting that target πŸ™‚

    Your hair is, as always, super awesome!

    1. abbiosbiston

      Oh honey you would never get shot. Most people have no fear of mentioning it. My friend’s boyfriend even said, “so you’ve been wasting a pretty face under all that”… which was… nice.

      I think with weight loss it’s just a bit of a challenge getting your mind to catch up with your body. We all have a picture of who we are and what we look like and for me it’s become a bit disconnected.

      But thank you so much for your kind words.

      1. I think a large part of it is with typing there is no emotion, and I don’t ever want to be misconstrued!

        It is… after you fish out the compliment :/

        I am sure you will reconcile it πŸ™‚

        When it is the truth, it is the truth.

    Box or natural your red hair is beautiful and so are you. My wife is a box redhead and I love her hair and she is my beautiful doll. I can’t wait to see 51-60!

      Thank you so much! What a lovely thing to say!

      1. jmount43

        You’re welcome, Abbi.

  5. What a great post. And once again thanks for nominating me for the quote challenge, I will get round to it as soon as I can.

      Thank you!
