If you live in the UK at the moment firstly- hang in there. This current climate of buffoonery and Barnard Castle is our karma for Colonialism and Morrisey but it can’t last forever. Secondly, you’ll have seen our wise and just leaders are very concerned about the waist of the nation. We’re apparently all too […]

A couple of weeks ago a Facebook marketing pop up got the better of me and I clicked on a random ad for Purition- a wholefood based protein supplement that various sinister AI cookies decided I might like. I was maybe hungry, I was maybe vulnerable to suggestion and I was definitely sick of the […]

*sweary rant warning* So, after banging on about how I had the hang of smartpoints finally and Weight Watchers was no longer making me want to periodically hang myself, the buggers went and changed it all. All legit plan followers- so those using the official app or attending group sessions- will have been introduced to […]

Instead I write to you from my sofa on the eve of just another Thursday, about five kilos lighter than I was at the start of this conversation […]

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 […]
