Night shifts are clearly the answer to weight loss. I can't tell if it's because I'm on my feet for 10-12 hours, eating less big meals (meaning those 3am cookies aren't doing much damage) or I'm so tired I'm reading the scales wrong and have act... Read more
What's a year in the great scheme of life?

So I realised that it's been a very, very (VERY) long time since I checked in on here. My bad. Life sort of got away from me for a bit and friends I'd made on here had all drifted away or disappeared and there didn't seem to be much point. ... Read more
Toilet doors are evil
Saturday, July 27, 2013      2 comments

So, yesterday I opened a toilet stall door. In revenge at this atrocity, the toilet door struck back and decapitated my big toe. That is, knocked the nail off the nail bed causing much pain and blood. A little bit of an over reaction I thi... Read more

Opps, so what with all the champagne, bucks fizz, vodka, wine, hamburgers, desserts and general merriment that comes with a wedding, I've managed to regain all the weight I lost over the last 3 weeks. I hate my body and it's unbelievable ability... Read more

so after my two days which included a box of chocolates for dinner and then a MacDonalds meal for lunch the next day (although that's all I ate that day) I lost 0.2lbs but you know what? It's still a loss! It's not a gain which is what I thought... Read more

Today a lovely couple gave me a GIGANTIC box of chocolates for delivering their baby yesterday. I was shattered after staying late on a late shift and doing an early today and to my shame have inhaled loads of them! Talk about a week moment. ... Read more

I've lost 6.6lbs this week, oh the joy!! I'm focusing on lbs lost and not the fact that it still leaves me at 237lbs! Why oh why did I allow myself to put all this weight back on - not paying attention and prioritizing other things, that's... Read more

So I'm now living in the UK! How crazy is that? It's been a mad month. Everything that could go wrong, has gone wrong but I've finally, finally, finally been allowed to start the midwifery course. I'm still waiting to find out how much they... Read more's not helping

So it's the holy month of Ramadan and there is no eating or drinking in the office, in public ect ect and rather than helping me, it's hindering me big time. Why? Because I am lazy. soooo lazy and the last two days I haven't had time to have bre... Read more

but the woman in the gym was staring at me! Not obviously, but she kept sneaking little glances at me. It made me uncomfortable. It made me wonder why I was running on a treadmill at the gym when I'm 220lbs. Why did she keep lo... Read more

My treadmill is currently in transit to the UK because I'm moving home so it means I can't just hop out of bed and onto a treadmill. Instead I got up at 6am and went to the gym and ran there. I didn't run as much as I wanted to and I've ac... Read more
My weight is built on excuses and 'meaning well' comments
Wednesday, July 04, 2012      0 comments

I was thinking about this the other day and how I allowed myself and was allowed to put on so much weight as a child. Part of the massive weight gain was linked to PCOS and it's true that I put on about 3 stone in a year right before puberty (42... Read more
Goal not achieved but happy anyway

So I didn't lose 4lbs this week but I did lose 1.2lbs and I figure in the long run, as long as I'm going down and not up it could be a lot worse. Plus there were roast dinners and desserts last week so that's bound to have had an impact. I'm pro... Read more
