Gaining weight & Eating out of control! :´(
I don't even know where to start. But perhaps the most important first. I'm pregnant.
It's not planned and if I'd planned more children, I obviously wouldn't have had surgery last summer to remove my excess skin after the 130lb... Read more
Before & After Surgery Photos
Sometimes, a photo speaks louder than a million words:
I'm still having the post-operation staph infection wound redressed every two days and I'm still quite emotional... Read more
Tomorrow: The Operation.
So, tomorrow I go. To have the excess skin and a considerable amount of flab removed from my belly. Abdominoplasty, I think, is the correct term.
And although this is what I want and what I have fought so hard and so long to get, I am terri... Read more
Exercise: Motivation Found!
I've been putting it off, and putting it off, and putting it off. Didn't quite know how or where to even start! But it had to start. I have to get fit. For a whole bunch of good and very valid and motivational reasons that'll I'll write about so... Read more
For all the sexy women out there.
I hope everyone has had a lovely and tasty Christmas and New Year!
I spoke to a friend recently who is just starting her weight loss journey and is terrified of going on the scales. I said to her that she must never allow the scales to cont... Read more
Let this be our project.
A wiseman went for a walk on the beach. Further down the beach, he saw a dancing figure. Intrigued by the lone dancer, he walked closer and saw a man. But he wasn't dancing at all. He was throwing starfish into the sea.

It's in the mind before it enters the mouth!
I went to a neighbour's 60th birthday the other evening. What an evening!
As is most often the case when I am with people, people will soon start talking about weight. In particular, they will start talking about MY weight. With me and amon... Read more
Total Humiliation - and Success.
In case you never have the pleasure of having your "overhang" measured in order to determine whether you're eligible for a tummy tuck on the NHS, let me assure you, you are NOT missing out! It really does not get any more embarrasing or humiliat... Read more
587 days older and 116.6 lbs lighter!
Today it happened. Today I reached my goal weight. For the first time in over 30 years (since the age of 4) I have a BMI within the "normal" weight bracket. At 24.9, it's at the top end, but it's there - it's normal and it's unfathomable!

I passed my driving test today. At the age of 34, I am finally and amongst many other things, a driver!
And I'll tell you something else: I couldn't have done this - taken my driver's license - 110 lbs ago.
My self confidence has soar... Read more
Good bye and good riddance!
Yes, the sun is shining and I'm above caring about the number on the scales, blah-blah-blah. Yes... but I'm also a flesh and blood (and approximately 35% lard) woman, and I'm getting utterly frustrated with the scales. I'm easily u... Read more
50,2 kilo lost - that's 110.7lbs. In 482 days.
But that's not what I came to say - I came to relate a conversation I had with my mum.
When I told her that I passed 50 kg lost, she congratulated me and then she said "I bet you you nev... Read more
I am a fat – I am a cake.
How the 'ell am I supposed to react when someone I barely know comes over to me, interrupts a quite important conversation, puts her arm around me and says she simply has to say this as it's been burning a hole in her all night: “You mustn't los... Read more
The mystery that are my scales continues, as I appear to have lost no less than 2.2 lbs since Monday, when I last went on the scales. I know it can't be right, though I'm happy to believe the result, if that makes sense. Just have an inkling tha... Read more
