Happy New Year!

Well it's been so long. I guess you are thinking I have lost so much weight and got so cocky that I didn't feel inclined to update my fat blog. WRONG!

The truth is I have not weighed in since my last post which was back in September. Naughty I know.  Where the hell have you been you may ask? Well since I last posted I went and got myself a Christmas job, which was a shock to my system having not worked for over a year and a half. Did I say TIRED

Accordingly, this blog took a back seat.  Moreover, I took quite a fancy to the heavily subsidised meals, that I considered it not prudent to weigh myself at that time. Funny enough am not that taken with the meals nowadays, perhaps they have a new chef, but I can take or leave the meals now.

A new year a new diet. So am back in business As you know I don't follow any formal diets, I just try to eat sensibly allowing myself the odd naughty here and there. Life would be so dull without this provision.

At this moment in time I have no idea what I weigh, so am I in for a rude awakening? All will be revealed next time I post.

Until Next Time

Well I Never!

It has been exactly one calendar month when I last posted, during that time I have had my sensible days and my bad days in respect of my diet. Yes I have still enjoyed the odd packet of crisps - quite a few actually, teacakes and hot cross buns, and yes I could go on. 


However, I have recognised that these have been bad days, and thrown a few good days into the balance.  You could say my food diary has been a combo of naughty, extremely naughty and sensible, if you want to split hairs.

I am not one to follow a regimented diet, I know what's good and what's bad, and I know it's all about proportions. I may not lose as much weight as the regimental diet followers but it is coming off slowly and surely. What more can a fatty ask for!

I visited the Chemist's weighing scales today, popped off my shoes, inserted my coin and waited with trepidation. I have had a B**CH of a week and I thought yes, let this be the bitter cherry on my already stale cake, I was ready for it since bad luck happens in three's, and I had already had two, suspecting I was about to experience the third. Besides my food habits are not synonymous with dieting by any stretch of the imagination, so I was expecting the worse. So there I stood awaiting the bad news.

I happen to glance at the screen mid calculation and I couldn't believe what I saw, you could have knocked me down with a feather. I blinked and it was gone.  DAMN! Tell me to step off and collect my printout, I thought impatiently. I stepped off the scales as instructed, grabbed at the printout like a fatty on a mission. Yes the ticket  confirmed what I saw . . .  my blubber was minus 5lbs. Whoa, I could have done a little merry dance there and then.

So a total of 11lbs I have lost, okay it's over a period of about 6 mths but am happy with that. A loss is a loss, is a LOSS.

What I loved about seeing my ticket is it pushed me exactly 5lbs under the dreaded stone, I have been battling to move from. It's been like having a ball and chain for years. Now I feel like am getting somewhere and this has really spurred me on. Another 3lbs and I will have lost a stone. I have still got quite a long way to go but am rearing to go.

I have to say I feel so excited as I hovered over the same stone for about five years on and off. One year I done exceptionally well, then put it all on the following year and remained at that particular stone ball ground.

I KNOW I can do it now!

My next goal is to get that 3lbs off for a total of 14lbs weight loss, sounds great when you put it like that.

As a sidenote, I just celebrated with a pack of crisps. I know . . .  am incorrigible.

Until Next Time

Moment of Madness

How y'all doing in the fight the flab game? Thought it was high time I checked in. I haven't weighed myself since I last blogged, well I have on my bathroom scales but not on the electronic pharmacy scales, which I prefer. No idea what my official weight is so I have decided to weigh in next week, mainly because I have fallen of the wagon in true Missy Fatty style and I think getting a sharp reminder of my weight on paper might be a good kick in the a*se. That being said I have not been too bad apart from yesterday.

I guess you're wondering what happened yesterday. Firstly, I left the house on a tentative hungry tummy, you know the feeling just a little peckish but you don't have anything in and tell yourself you will do a healthy shop then eat your lunch later. Well that was my intention. Got so far as the corner shop and bought myself a pack of the lower fat crisps, which I do occasionally, so not too much of a bad thing, however pairing it with a high calorie bar of chocolate is. DAMN! I was doing so well. I know the rule of not leaving the house on an empty stomach, but I had no choice with an empty fridge.

I was ravenous when I got to the shopping centre, the crisps and chocolate had done nothing to tame my hunger. I bought myself a magazine from the large newsagents and along with my change they gave me what looked like a ream of special offers at MacDonald's. OH NO! I was already feeling weak, and when I saw the prices of £1 odd, it sent me over the edge, yes right over the edge of the nearest MacDonald's which was about four shops away. Arrrgghh.

I enjoyed the fillet o fish and medium fries, in case you're wondering. I decided at that point, that I was going to write that whole day off and enjoy it as a day of  PURE NAUGHTINESS, and picked up a bag of sweet popcorn, in addition to a sandwich and a pack of crisps for my evening indulgence. Made sense to kill all my cravings that day.

Today I have been extremely good and strict, from one extreme to the other. We will see what damage I have done in my moment of madness, next weigh day. 

I will keep you posted.

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

 The Bad

I decided it was a teeny weeny bit pointless weighing myself, you see I haven't been entirely good on my diet, let's just say a couple of large Mac D fries featured in addition to potato cakes, sweet pancakes and full fat crisps.  Basically I have had a mixture of good and bad days. This seems a regular occurrence with me, I fall off the horse then am back on it again only to fall off again. But the good thing is I don't give up. I will lose weight but not as quick as the regular dieter but that is okay with me. 

The Ugly

I attended a park event, referred to as yarn bombing, featuring a knitted picnic which we had all created during my weekly knitting group. Yarn scarfs were draped around trees. It was a glorious day and the children loved it. I could hear some of them proudly pointing out their wool poms poms hanging from a given tree. Must admit I was pretty proud of the doughnuts and chocolate swirls I created as a beginner. Even the blanket was knitted by members.

I rejected any attempts of anyone taking my photo unless it was from my camera, where I posed like no-ones business.

That being said, there is nothing like seeing a photo of yourself in all your blubber glory to give you pause for thought. Funny how one doesn't feel as fat when they look in their own mirror but on a photograph, aye, aye, aye. Did I say VILE!

The Good

Despite the above, I have been much better. I have a mental categaory I have termed, "Under No Circumstances" and in this category I have items I cannot touch, under any circumstances, until further notice. So even if I can't resist a naughty, these items are untouchable, and I have to say I have been successful in this regard. When items are put in this category I mean business.

There are only a couple of things in this category, chocolate cookies, which I could not resist each day I visited my local convenience store and blocks of butter, which is so calorific and I was going through some serious blocks, over the months. So the fact that I have cut these out should show on my waistline even after six months, am guessing.  Am hoping to increase this list slowly, after all Rome wasn't built in a day.

I decided to take some blubber measurements and start afresh.  The last time I had taken measurements was the 9th May, I was expecting a few pluses but what the hell.

I found the following;

Upper Bust =     - 1"
Full Bust =         - 1.5"
Under Bust =     - 0.5"
Waist =              - 1.5"
Hips =                - 1"
Thigh=              -  1"

A total loss of 6.5 inches. Well I'll be damned!

So you see despite being a lousy dieter, it isn't all doom and gloom, just keep getting back on that horse, that is how I lost two stone previously and how I will lose it again.  Yes sir.

 Bet you're on tenterhooks wondering how I have done. 

Wednesday 18th July

Upon entrance of a popular supermarket, there displayed for all to see, where various reduced items. Being a little curious I sauntered over, and there in a cute little bag were three mouth watering freshly baked double chocolate cookies for £1. I picked up the sealed packet and just stared at them, and am talking deep intense stare,  and then I snapped out of it, replaced the packet and walked away. Phew that was close.

So all in all a good day.

Exercise - 40 min walk.

Thursday 19th July

It got to lunch time and I fancied some cold cereal but not the one I had in. I popped to the shop since I needed milk and noticed Rice Krispies were only £1. Not had them for quite some time, looking at them made my mouth water, so I indulged myself. 

Got home made myself a bowl . . . snap, crackle and pop. To say they went down nicely is an understatement. They were DELICIOUS!

I had this overwhelming urge to have another bowl, wrestled with myself, go on have another bowl, er no don't be greedy etc, etc, etc. I wasn't in the mood for arguing with myself so for a quieter life I succumbed to the delights of the cereal. Did I say WEAK?

One thing I quickly remembered is why I don't buy them any more. They are too MOREISH. I find that with Sugarpuffs, Cornflakes and Pringles. I need to exercise self discipline.

Done some abdominal exercises today, so not all bad hehe. 

Exercise - Abdominal exercises

Friday 20th July
Bought a small pack of nuts, late morning, with the intention of having a little each day, since they are said to be healthy. Demolished the whole packet in one sitting. It was one of those days and I took it out on the nuts.

Well that's my excuse and am sticking to it.

Saturday 21st July

I have been surprisingly good today. Nearly popped a packet of starburst (fruit chewy sweets) in my shopping trolley but popped them back on the shelf. Getting good at this.

Day One. Again!!!

Ended up weighing myself today rather than yesterday. The good news is my weight is exactly the same as when I last weighed myself, so no nasty surprises. Although, I would have liked the scales to have said a bit less but hey ho. This is my first day of my diet, so onwards and upwards.

Am only going to weigh myself every 10 days, give or take, I find it gives me a little eating breathing space. 

My aim is to lose two stone, first goal 7lbs. Doesn't sound much when you say it, but the trials and tribulations one goes through to try and achieve such a little weight loss, is astronomical. Ok I exaggerate, but it is so damn hard.  

Ok peeps keep your fingers crossed for me. 

I will be back in about 5 days with my half way progress. 

I feel I should exit with some kind of motivational quote. Perhaps . . .   if you can't beat it, eat it. Ok am jesting, am sure there is more to life than eating. Drinking perhaps?

All happening tomorrow . . .

Well it's been some time, hope you're well. Anyway a couple of weeks back I visited the town centre chemist to weigh myself. Machine out of order. Tried this Saturday gone, still out of order. So tomorrow am going to try one of the weighing scales in a chemist near me. I do have scales but it's not the same without the printout, plus I tend to think mine would be faulty if they showed any weight loss. Moreover sometimes you're not too sure what your weight is, as the majority of indicators are lines. I like to see it in black and white!

On the plus side I have been extremely good, so am hoping my first weigh in, will show that I have shifted some blubber since the last time I weighed myself. It will give me quite a boost. It hasn't been easy, I have been looking at my favourite cakes with the intense longing you have  when you see a gorgeous man as a single woman. But I have resisted and I couldn't be more pleased.
Back Tomorrow
