I have already been kicked up the bum for complaining…I lost 4.5lbs! :-(

I know that this is a good loss…but considering it is three weeks since my last weigh in, I was a bit disappointed really. I was so good on holiday and resisted so many naughty things that my other half and Mum were eating. My dream that I had – with the 18lb loss – was just that, a dream; but I was expecting 7 or 8lbs.

Hey ho – it is still a good loss and there were so many more hurdles that I overcame on my holiday…the weight loss has to be looked at as a bonus I suppose. I got a bit touchy in group when people kept telling me that they would love a loss like that…yes, Pizza Lady was one of them. I used the dreaded words, “with all due respect”…which means that you aren’t really going to be respectful…and said, “The difference is that I stick to the plan and you don’t; if you did, you would lose that!” It wasn’t very nice I suppose, and I think that it might be her way of offering support – but when she clearly doesn’t follow the plan it can be a little frustrating! ;-)

Also, last years post holiday loss of 12lbs was playing on my mind. As a competitive little madam, I wanted to ‘beat’ that! 4.5lbs is 4.5lbs though…so I will take it and will stop being a stroppy bitch soon. :-)

One lady in group mentioned that when her diabetes medication was reduced, she put weight on for a week or two. Maybe this could be a factor? I absolutely hate blaming medication though, as I think it gives an excuse not to do well…and the medication didn’t stuff scallops down my mouth, did it?! ;-)

I will just get back to eating how I do at home – four Green days and three Original days – and will see how I go. Oh – that was another thing that peed me off though…Original days usually produce great weight losses, and having had nearly three weeks of the buggers, I had high hopes. I guess you can never get too cocky though!

My lovely consultant told me to step on the scales and not look – as I had warned her that they might take flight through the window – and as I got on she said, “Oooh, that’s disappointing!”…so I knew it wasn’t great news! I was bang on 27st – and we had both hoped that I would be down in the 26′s…but last year I was in the 39′s…so I am not doing bad really…I just need to stop being so bloody stupid. My other half has just told me not to be a dick…so I might just listen to him on this occasion. :-)

After group I headed off to the gym…and joined! I snuck in first to watch an aquafit class as I wanted to make sure that I could do it, and I know that I can. So both my other half and I joined. We now just have to go!

Tomorrow is the first day of uni – eek! My bag is packed and my lunch is prepared – lunch was sorted before my bag was! ;-) I will be holding my head up high tomorrow and getting back out into the world of education…bring it on.

That’s is really…I am heading off for a webinar on weight loss – so will catch up tomorrow once I am back from student-land!

Breakfast: Banana.

20131015-185501.jpgLunch: Noodles with roasted chilli marrow and peppers.

20131015-185550.jpgDinner: Burgers and chips (4 syns).

20131015-200947.jpgSnacks: French Fries (24 syns).

20131015-200913.jpgA good day on plan – but a silly method of eating! I had my banana early morning, but didn’t get anything else until gone 5pm – bloody stupid for a diabetic! So I have given myself a kick to try and stop doing this…I need to eat at regular intervals. This way of eating meant that I ended up cramming all of my food in this evening…and feel like a whale as a result – so bloated! My lunch was good though – I had the leftover marrow and peppers with a packet of low fat Supernoodles…so quick, yet tasty. Burgers for dinner – again, quick and tasty. And of course the obligatory Tuesday crisps. Funnily enough, I only had one packet on holiday and didn’t miss them – maybe that was my missing ingredient! ;-)

Exercise: A bit of mooching around the gym…more watching than doing.

Thank you for reading my ‘ungrateful cow’ post,

Weight Loss Bitch xxx



On a health and fitness driven journey to lose over 32st / 448lbs / 203kgs – yes, it is a considerable amount – I am committed to losing my excess weight without the aid of weight loss surgery, diet pills, or quick fixes…as there aren’t any! Changing my eating habits and building up my fitness levels, along with addressing the ‘head issues’ will be crucial in order for me to achieve my goal. Living in England as a 31 year old super morbidly obese woman can be challenging to say the least. I have been shouted at in the street and verbally abused far too many times to mention; hence the name ‘Weight Loss Bitch’…the day I am just called a ‘bitch’ instead of a ‘fat bitch’ will be the day that I know I have cracked my weight loss! With many reasons to lose this weight I am documenting my journey for a number of reasons. Firstly, I would like to keep a record of the ups and downs, the highs and lows, and the challenges I face with such an enormous task to tackle. Secondly, I would also like to inspire and encourage other people who are in a similar situation and to show them that significant amounts of weight can be lost naturally…with a bit of motivation, hard work, dedication and will power. Thirdly, all of the blogging, Facebook-ing, Tweet-ing, Pinterest-ing and YouTube-ing keeps me occupied and keeps my fingers out of the fridge!
