You’re Too Fat, It’s Time To Lose Weight

 I’ve always been ‘big’. Even as a size 12 (which used to be a goal, and is now considered huge) bulimic 14 year old, who would pass out at school because she hadn’t eaten; was embarrassed to be seen eating (another story for another day). I was called fat, and all the other permutations of what I then believed to be a slur.  Fat it not a slur, it is a descriptor.  I am fat.  I have fat.  I have friends and we are fat.  Call me fat 20 years later and I’ll say, “yeah, no shit”!  I am proud […]

Rocking the 5:2 diet: my weight loss journey so far with Lighterlife Fast #tryfast

And what a journey it’s been.  I started my quest for weight a little late, and not to auspiciously.  You can read the story so far here.  As a clipped summery, I stuck to the plan but actually put on weight.  After reviewing the facts, I realised I was pre-menstral and that water weight was to blame.  I’m so glad I took the time to take stock, as it urged me to stick with the plan.     I’ve been eating a healthy diet 5 days a week, with plenty of lean proteins, fruit and veg.  The other 2 days […]

Lighter life fast: the 5:2 diet with #lighterlifefast – my weight loss journey starts here #tryfast

Well, not quite here – officially (and actually) I started on Monday the 16th of June when I returned from my holiday (which I shall also be posting about shortly).  Two years + of takeaways and meals out have taken their toll on my waistline, and I know I would have gained on holiday as I ate indiscriminately (and plentifully) – as most of us do on holiday I think.       I’ve had limited success with weight loss since (and a little before) being diagnosed with my personal plethora of health problems, most of which mean I am […]
