This Just In

Okay - it's maybe not JUST in, but I feel like I've suddenly realised just how massive the size of my backside is.... and my things, boobs, arms, back fat wedges. You get the picture. The big fat picture.

I'm in a bad way. A really bad way. I've really packed on the pounds and am now only around a stone away from my heaviest weight ever. At one point I was almost 3 stone away from that dark and frankly miserable place.

I'm not going to bleat on about how crap I feel, how none of my clothes fit and I generally am disgusted with myself (there's plenty of posts to come about that - boom boom). What I will tell you is that something needs to happen. I need something that's going to give me a kick up the arse and get me in the right headspace and so.... after much thought I've decided to do something I never thought I would consider (having dabbled when I was around 16) again.

Okay, here it is. On Tuesday I'm going to..... Slimming World. There, I've said it. I'm not happy with  this decision. This is something that I hope will change.

I've been inspired by the incredible Helen over at Clear Your Heart. This little lady has lost an impressive 4.5 stone this year. Get your head around those numbers. A friend of mine has also had success and I just feel that I have to do SOMETHING.


  1. Girrrrl, I know it. One day I'm rocking it like Slash, the next second I'm the size of a house and can't fit into any of my clothes. When did this happen, I think? Oh, I don't know, maybe in between the pizza, booze and sugar binges?
    I'm intrigued by Slimming World. But alas, I'm not in the UK or Texas (WTF? random, much?) I'm sure you'll have much luck & I'll be inspired by your success.

  2. I've also been reading the lovely Helen's blog (the slimming and the life life one) and have been AMAZED. One of my close friends here in Seattle lost boat loads of weight on weight watchers and I think I am also ready to be pulled into the miasma of COUNTING points (again). Ugh, I hate it. However, my traditional beer and carb-galore diet isn't working. Feh. Let's do it together, sister!

  3. I know, G. How amazing is Helen. She's amazing and has been really supportive about my decision - which was not an easy one.

    I went last night. Not fun. Will blog ALL about it.

    C'mon then - join me.

    Glam- I know, Dallas only? What's that all about? I know you're a healthy eating demon when you get going. I'm scared when it comes out as it's so impressive!

  4. Aww I've only just seen this post! Thanks for the kind words, lovely! xx


Go on then, spill.
