I’ve done OK since we last checked in on my weight loss thing. By OK, I mean I haven’t put any weight on. In fact I don’t think my weight has moved more than about half a kilo either way since June. This is surprising, as I have had some seriously bingey DGAF periods […]Read More The Skinny Thing: A Month Of Mondays.
Some time ago I was the subject of some unduly harsh criticism of my general ranking as a Significant Other after Instagramming evidence that I was about to serve the Mr a weight watchers esque fake pizza for dinner. A weight watchers esque fake pizza with mange tout on it. I will defend myself as […]Read More The Skinny Thing: Pizza Tortillas
Weight watchers. Haven’t I slammed them recently? Don’t I hate commercialised weight loss plans? Yeah, I do, in a way. I understand weight loss science and the evil psychology of effective marketing. I also need to lose more weight. I’m also a begrudging fan of Elliot Hulse. Who? Elliot Hulse: Relentlessly in your face former […]Read More The Skinny Thing- Weight Watchers
Some weeks ago I had a personal overshare on my current fight against the bulge and previous life experience as a fatty. Oddly this turned out to be one of the most hit posts (in the least time) that I have ever penned. How charming that the facebook masses will flock so mercilessly to get a good […]Read More The Skinny Thing- 4 Week Catch Up
To be clear before we start, I’ve never been skinny other than maybe as a toddler. I was a fat kid, a very fat teenager and a morbidly obese twenty something. This maybe isn’t a surprise for someone who so clearly enjoys eating, and always has. Perhaps always. I’ll get to that later. Cut back […]Read More The Skinny Thing- An Unhappy Revisitation
Urgh, sunshine, and with it the impending doom of the season that I dread annually. Yeah great, summer. Weddings, swim suits, exposed flesh and body image neuroses ahoy! Yay! I’m not going to slag off people who are diet obsessed, I myself often think the diet obsessed are ridiculous souls who need to just be sensible, go to the […]Read More The Skinny Thing- scrambled eggs.
<—–I ate this last night, and it was bloody marvellous. I don’t regret a single mouthful- I’ve been the to the gym four times this week and celebrated a relationship milestone so yeah, guilt free treats all round. But now I’m facing the start of another week and as I sit here in front of […]Read More The Vegan Diaries- a post script
Yes, the end draws nigh. It’s been emotional. That was a lie, but I’ll get to that later, yet looking back on a week it’s not been so bad. It’s not been so great either but there have been many learning points on the way. I don’t know that I have any great insights to […]Read More The Vegan Diaries- Day Seven: The Debunk
Way back in the day when I first decided to take on this vegan thing (about a week ago) one of my reasons for picking this time period was that I could be sure for a whole week that I was neither going to have nor be a dinner guest. This ended up not being […]Read More The Vegan Diaries: Day Six- Sorry, I’m Vegan.
If Vegan was an actual person, rather than a whole lifestyle thing, and that actual person walked into my living room right now, I think I would punch Vegan in the face. If I had the strength to lift my arms that is. And then Vegan would no doubt kick my arse into next friday […]Read More The Vegan Diaries. Day Five- The Veganator
