So very, very scared…

Hi.  This is quite a tough one to write, but I need to  get this one out. At the moment, I’m petrified.  Really, really scared. I’m loving this new lifestyle, and I’m loving where it could lead, but I’m terrified that I’m going to muck it all up and go back to full-on fat-bloke status.  […]

10lbs and counting…

And still counting down! Third weigh in this morning and another 3lbs off.  That’s 10lbs in total, and to say I’m as pleased as punch would be an understatement.  Let me summarise where I am right now – I’m eating far, far healthier than I have done in years, and I’m loving it.  More fruit […]

D.I.S.C.O. – D.I.S.C.O.

Just a quick tale here about a bag of crisps.  I know that’s not quite up there with “I have a dream”, but it’s all I’ve got at the moment… I was working away in Cardiff earlier this week, and stopped at a garage on the way down there to buy some lunch.  This wasn’t […]

It’s all in the mind…

The mind games that go on in the confused and muddled head of the fat-bloke are fascinating.  It’s possible that thin-blokes have the same sort of things going on, but it’s so long since I was one of them that I really can’t comment with any accuracy. One of the cornerstones of the Weight Watchers […]

7lbs and counting…

Just a quick update here – lots to do today. Second weigh in – 3lbs lost.  That’s seven pounds in total, which is half a stone in two weeks.  I’m really pleased, and am feeling quite proud of myself, as I’ve really dedicated myself to my shrinking art this week. I’m very aware that this […]

Where it gets tricky…

Let me tell you something about this whole losing weight thing.  It’s always, always easy to lose weight.  It’s difficult to keep losing weight for any significant period of time, and it’s harder still to keep that weight off.  For a fat bloke anyway.  If you scratch the surface of a fat bloke (which to be […]

If you can notice this notice…

I started this journey on Monday 7th June at about 6pm.  I could (or perhaps even should) have waited and started the weight watchers thing the next day, but I’m an impulsive kind of guy, so I decided to just dive straight in.  One of the cornerstones of the Weight Watchers system is to record the […]

Farewell Big Fella…

First of all, let me state for the record that I’m a fat bloke. Chubby, cuddly, large, wobbly, big-bloke, biggun, big-fella. All descriptions that have been used about me, either to my face or behind my back, presumably when people thought that the sound of my crisp packet rustling would render my hearing useless.  There […]
