Feeling myself…

17 May 2014

My name is Weight Loss Bitch and I have a problem – I can’t stop feeling myself!


I am going through a strange and exciting phase of finding new sticky out bits.

There are these little things protecting your knee joint called kneecaps…I never knew I had them! And in Pilates this morning I was told to lay my hands on my hip bones…what the feck are they?! And collar bones too…these are bloody uncomfortable things – my seat belt now digs in and hurts me…but it’s a happy pain! :-)

It is so strange to see and feel my body changing. Obviously, some of it I am not that keen on…but in the main it is marvellous…I am marvellous! :-)

I have an obsession with my right kneecap at the moment – the left one hasn’t yet made a decent appearance – but the right one is there when I sit down and even my niece and nephew have been feeling it!

In bed at night I am obsessed with sleeping on my side so that I can grab and feel my hips bones!

As for my collar bones…well, I keep poking and prodding them and looking at them in the mirror! :-)

Oh – I almost forgot…Mr WLB always says that I have boxing mitts for hands. Not any more Mr WLB – I have knuckles showing through!

When it comes to mirrors, I am quite liking my bathroom mirror today. I came home this evening and popped upstairs…I caught sight of myself in the mirror and did a double-take. I was really happy with what I saw. Admittedly it wasn’t a full-length job, but feeling good when you look in any kind of bloody mirror is great progress as far as I am concerned.

It is strange and exciting and weird. I am getting used to what is under all of this fat. I am interested in seeing what else starts emerging.

There are downsides of course. I have lost two of my sticky out bits. They weren’t particularly huge in the first place really. I take after my Dad in the boob department, whereas my Mum and sister have big bazongas! :-) I have a teeny handful now…and I often grab a feel of them too. For health reasons – you have to feel your bits and bobs – and for vanity reasons! ;-)

That’s it for me today…I am too busy feeling myself to think of anything marvellous to write tonight…plus all of the fresh air I inhaled today is now making me sleepy! :-)

It’s been a great day. It started with a lovely Pilates session, and then I went to see the horses and I let them into the stables to get some shade and cool down…and I made them a nice feed and took a poo sample from one of them. We then headed to the shops, and went back to the stables as the lovely Lisa T from Lifestyles Gym came to visit with her hubby. We had a great chat whilst Mr WLB and her hubby chatted about football. Lisa loves horses too, so she had horsey cuddles! Then it was time to call it a day and head home after letting the horses back out. We have had dinner, Mr WLB is relaxing in the bath, and I am off to feel my kneecaps! ;-)

Breakfast: Boiled eggs and banana.

20140517-194450.jpgA lush Original day. It started with my usual eggs and banana, and was followed by a lovely lunch combo. I had Ryvita with garlic and herb Philadelphia and put some smoked salmon on top of this. I also had a sliced red pepper, some mixed radishes, and sliced apple. Dinner was steak with roasted red onion, butternut squash, courgette, aubergine, and cherry tomatoes. My snack was my lovely cheats gateau!

Exercise: 60 minutes Pilates.

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!
