Fat, thin, fat

Posted on Updated on

You know it’s time to go on a diet when your friend sits you down over salt beef to tell you ‘as a friend’ that you need to lose weight. Two weeks ago another friend asked me if I had figured out how to change the resistance on my exercise bike and my grandma has started to call me chazzer-chops (yiddish translation: fat shit). Anyway, today is day 1 and I’m hoping that this blog will become a fun by-product of my shitty diet.

Annoyingly i’ve done this all before. When I was 17 I weighed in at a hefty 21 stone… I caught a stomach bug whilst clubbing in Zante (I blamed the dodgy halloumi, greek boys and tanning oil), lost a stone and decided to carry on for another 2 years. I ended up weighting 13 stone at the age of 20. I was beautiful, springy, full of energy and didn’t give a shit about food. I ate to live…. didn’t live to eat.

Me at 17 and then 20 –


However, it all went tits-up when I fell in love. You know how it is… fancy restaurants here, banana pancakes there. Boom – it all becomes about food again. Combined with giving up a 25-a-day smoking habit, I’m back at 17 stone. After deciding that I couldn’t start smoking again or dump my boyfriend, it seems that an old-fashioned diet is my only way forward. Great.

Let the games begin!

    Your blog is hilarious, you write exactly what I am thinking. Well done on giving up the cigarettes, I really don’t want to give up because I am already severely over weight as it is, do I keep on postponing it until I get down to a healthier weight.
    Keep up the good work, you blog is awesome! 🙂

      Awesome comment thanks for writing 🙂 My advice would be to absolutely try and quit the smoking now. It might take you years (hopefully not) to lose the weight.. you don’t want to be years down the line and still smoking with the weight issue. That’s only my opinion… every doctor in the world would advise quitting smoking regardless of weight gain. 🙂 x
