So I went to see Solange Knowles* in concert at the Pigalle nightclub in Piccadilly, London. She was really quite brilliant, I must say. It sold out and guess who was there? The whole Knowles dynasty including Tina, Matthew and Beyonce**, the latter whom hid when she saw people recognised her.
Solange is full of energy and very good live. I really enjoyed myself and me and my mate were right at the front.
Besides her good voice, one thing I noticed with how thin yet healthy she looks. She looks thin all the time but she actually looks healthy in real life, more so than say this image to the left.
My weight has been yo-yoing this past year cos of the stress I put myself under when I was publishing Kerosene and studying for my degree. My mum pointed this out to me and I had a massive go at her and I should not have. Last year, I was a slim 58 kilos and now I am 69 kilos which was and still is an absolute shock. Now I am not saying 69 kilos is fat because it isn’t but I have never been this heavy. Even when I was porky as a child, I lost that weight and watched what I ate. But of course, troubles of the heart like love and stressing out make you put on weight no question about it. Now, I know I need to get this weight under control and at least go back down to 60 kilos.
I still cannot believe I am 11 stone (69 kilos). It has blown my mind.
I have been a member of the girls football club at uni for about 3 weeks but I know I need to do more exercise during the week to get my thighs or shall I say DRUMSTICKS under control quicktime.
And I need my waist back too! I’m giving myself until December to see some sort of change.
* = Solange is much prettier in real life.
** = Daddy Knowles walked past me in the crowd !
