Back from holiday, now to lose the weight!

I was already dieting before I went on holiday, but I didn't want to diet on holiday, I wanted to enjoy the local foods.

Gained a bit of the weight I lost back, but would rather enjoy myself while away than restrict myself.

Now I am back from holiday, the diet resumes!

The Sims 3 and expansion packs on Windows 8 64 bit

I have the Sims 3 and all but 2 of the expansion/stuff packs to install on Windows 8 64 bit. Heard many people say they have problems running TS3 on Windows 8 but also a few people have no problems so giving it a go and will update later.

UPDATE 1:

Just finished installing them all (4 hours later!) and game loaded fine. Will see how it plays

UPDATE 2:

Plays fine!

iPad it is!

Decided to get the new retina display iPad instead of an Android tablet again. Love it already so much more than I ever did my old Android Tablet!

Just looking for apps and games to install now!

iPad or Android

I am thinking of getting a new tablet PC. I currently have a Asus Transformer TF101 but it is laggy and the battery life is quite poor. Thinking of getting either a Sony Xperia Tablet Z or an iPad with Retina Display.
Such a difficult choice because after using Android on a tablet, I am not very happy with it. I know that the new Xperia Tablet Z is a newer version of Android, but it is still Android. Apple keep devices updated for longer. Having been a iPhone user, I know that a device usually gets about 2 iOS updates, where as Android seems to be about 1.
I love the look of apps on the iPad compared to Android too.
The only thing making it hard is that the Xperia Tablet Z is thinner and lighter than the iPad. That is about it really.

Such a hard choice as they are expensive to buy!

Losing weight is hard

I wish it was easier and didn't take as long to lose weight. Gaining weight seems to happen very quickly, but getting rid of it takes forever. Even when eating the right amount of calories, it is awful to have a week where you haven't lose a single pound.
I wish there was a way to lose weight fast that actually worked where the weight stayed off and and wasn't dangerous to your health. I know that any lose weight fast plans are mainly your body losing water so you gain the weight when you stop the short diet, but it still doesn't stop me wanting a quick fix.

Lowepro camera case

I picked up my Lowepro Tahoe 30 camera case for my Sony HX20V camera. I previously had a Lowepro Rezo 30 which was too small for this camera and also my previous Panasonic TX20.

The Tahoe 30 fits well, albeit a little too large, but only by a little bit. I would rather have it a little bit big than much too tight like the Rezo 30.

Camera for my travels

In preparation for my travelling in May, I bought myself a new camera. I wasn't happy with the low light photo quality of my old Panasonic TZ-20 so I have got a new Sony HX20V.

I attend conventions and concerts where light is not really an option so other than getting a DSLR which could be hard to carry around, I opted for a compact but good quality in low light camera. I spent hours over days researching, and this was the best for me.

Just bought the Lowepro Tahoe 30 case for it. Will give a review once I pick it up.

Just looking for a spare battery and a charger now.
