Skinny Bitches Progress Report

I have to completely agree with Green Eyes, although we're on a journey, it has to be one of the most fanatstic rides of all. We're considerably lucky to live the lives we do, and yes, we are fabulous, always have been and always will be. there's no argument there. But every journey has a destination, so I'd like to update you on how our ride is going.

First of all, because Im always so proud of Green Eyes (she doesn't realise how much), but damm if that girl wants something, she'll go out and get it. So Id like to announce that she has lost a total of 4000 grams (that's 4kg for u miserable kg fitness counter freaks). 4000 grams!!! that's sooo much. How I see it, is if you convert that to rands, that equals R4000 and do you know what you can get for R4000?.. tons of cool shit, so well done Green your Anne Boleyn thin waist looks FAB! How am I doing on the skinny front? well I keep running up-and-down stairs all day at work, so it better be paying off otherwise I'll insist they put a lift in.

Okay, so on the male/boyfrined front. Well Green Eyes had The Gay Best Friend down for a week or two and I think she's all 'maled' out for now. Me, Im actually debating whether to answer a booty call...I mean a cup of coffee call..(Freudian Slip), so some advice would be greatly appreciated. I don't know why I have to think about this so hard...but it'll get to the point when the phone goes dead, if you know what I mean, so I have to make a decision soon.

Another Skinny Bitch in the Making dream is to move out of the nest and directly into the heart of the CBD. If you haven't noticed, we have a countdown clock on the right-hand side which calculates our moving out deadline to be 1 August 2009. This should happen, just as long as 1. I get a raise, 2. Green Eyes doesn't find a job in the magazine world which pays less and 3. we're both debt free. Does anyone see a problem? I certainly don't.

And last, but not least, our careers. Green Eyes and myself were chatting the other day in her car (aptly named Lady M) and decided that she has a job and that I have a career. Purely for the fact that I love mine and she doesn't. But before you think she's an ungreatful skinny bitch, please remember where her heart magazine journalism. And yes, she has been making an effort, she's enrolled herself for two courses which will help her reach her career goals in more ways than one, and we're constantly on the look out for career opportunities for her. Just hoping if a career opportunity arises that it pays well, but career first, moving-out second, that's our deal. Im loving work for the most part. I didn't realise what a big learning curve it would actually be, how naive am I. But I work with a great team who offer all the support I need (chocolate, coffee, hugs, gossiping). I just need to grow a pair if balls. I didn't realise that in order to be a Skinny Bitch you had to have a pair, I was just concentraing on the being skinny part. I'll have to work much harder on the bitch part.


  • Skinny Bitches - CHECK
  • Boyfriends - who needs them right now when we're having too much fun
  • Moving Out - CHECK deadline looming
  • Career - half a CHECK

So all-in-all I think progress is being made. Maybe not in a direct way, but definately for the better and we are closer to our Skinny Bitch dreams.
