There were no flowers today. There were no chocolates today. There was not even a card!

Mr WLB knows me incredibly well, and so I got these beauties…photo 3photo 4Smoked scallop slices all the way from the Hebridean Smokehouse on the Isle of North Uist. I have to say that they were the most amazing thing I have ever eaten!

I think we all like being spoilt – so flowers and chocolates and a card would have been nice…but Mr WLB and I are generally pretty nice to each other on a regular basis. Also, he calls me the most underwhelmed gift receiver ever! Apparently I do show appreciation for gifts, but never to the level he expects…and therefore I am rubbish! I am never sure what kind of response he expects in return for a bunch of flowers though! :-)

Mr WLB got this from me…photo 5…my incredibly talented cousin makes the BEST cakes and so I treated him to one. She offered to make me a box of them, but given that we are both on a health kick I thought it might be too tempting. I am no saboteur! ;-)

Smoked scallops and cake…we do know each other well!

Mr WLB knows that I love him lots. I love him for being him. I love him for being a bit of a gadget geek, for being uncoordinated and making me laugh during our Pilates lessons, and for doing his special naked dances for me! ;-)

I love him for all that he has overcome. I love him as he is my best friend. I love him as he is my biggest cause of frustration.

I love him for his terrible farts, his horrible toenails, and his doughnut bum.

I love all of his imperfections – few as they are – as his imperfections make him perfect.

Thank you for loving me as much as I love you Mr WLB…but next time, leave the butternut squash for our Valentine’s dinner in the oven for a bit longer! ;-)

Haha – that’s it for me today.

It’s been a good day. Mr WLB and I spent most of it together, but I did head out this afternoon for a catch up with a friend and a colleague from my coaching course. We talked about all sorts of coaching related bits and pieces and had a good giggle. Tonight will be nice and quiet…with both of us suffering from achey muscles and the prospect of a nice stretching Pilates session tomorrow morning.

Breakfast: Leftover chicken and bacon pasta.photo 1Lunch: Smoked salmon scrambled egg (2 x HEB).photo 2Dinner: Steak, roast sweet potato and butternut squash, stuffed mushrooms (HEA), roast pepper, and red onion.photo 6Snacks: Fruit and yogurt (no picture), scallops and mini Green & Blacks bars (12.5 syns).photo 3A good food day – lots of it! I ate the leftover chicken and bacon pasta from last night for brekkie. Lunch was one of my favourites – a packet of smoked salmon trimmings mixed in with eggs and scrambled, ontop of spinach and toasted wholemeal rolls, with cherry tomatoes. Dinner was a nice steak affair – with roasted butternut squash and sweet potato. I did some roasted red onion, sweet peppers, and stuffed mushrooms. And the snacks were good…the delicious scallop slices were enjoyed last night and today…soooo good! I also had some fruit with yogurt and some chocolate – a good Valentines day I think!

Exercise: Post PT session rest day.

WeightLossBitch

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!
