Week 3

Posted in Uncategorized on February 18, 2009 by Fatty Bombatty

Now I would put my new weight in accept I have kinda taken one step forward and 3 back this week. After having a very encouraging 2 weeks of exercise and eating I felt that for this to continue I needed a support network, having exhausted all ideas of using family members and friends, I succumbed to the idea of Weight Watchers. Not wanting to go alone I roped my sister into coming with me although she barely needs to loose weight I was tres excited when she weighed herself to find she was laying outside of her WW ideal weight category. Anywho as it was she didn’t make it to the meeting so I went alone. Bloody Terrifying. Not only that due to the location of the meeting in an old church hall and therefore felt more like a WI meeting, and as if writing down my weight wasn’t bad enough having someone else looking at it was a whole other game. And then imagine my absolute horror when the WW (devil scales) weighed me in at 19st 2lbs!!! NO a whole 7lbs heavier than my own scales, so there is my 3 or should it be 7 steps back.

I think I pretty much got the hang of it all it’s straightforward enough. there was a pretty eclectic mix of people there some men, old women teenage girls, some very fat (like me wahoo) others not so much more like they just over indulged during the fe stive season.

So…..

Weight 19.2 st /268.8 lbs /122.2 kg

Week 2

Weight Week 2 – 260lbs/118kgs/18.5 st

Wahoo I am officially loosing weight 5lb down. Ok so I was a bit slack in getting this written down, but I weighed myself on Wednesday morning and I had lost 5lbs.

So what I am doing this week I am hoping is more of the same I am making a big effort to clock up my 10,000 steps a day. I started last week calorie counting but by Thursday I was SO over that, I don’t mind counting the ‘substance’ food but when your making a salad and trying to weigh lettuce it just becomes cumbersome, so I came up with this method: I can eat 1000 calories a day of ‘substance’ and I don’t count fruit (not inc dried fruit) or vegetables, it makes it so much damned easier. Oh and I have a no count day which could also be known as sanity day!!

What Was Bad This Week:

It wasn’t really bad it just annoyed me. Only a blind man would think that my orange A & F tracky bottoms aren’t cool, but apparently in some well know furniture shops they don’t invite helpful service! I went to 4 shops milled around for 10 mins each and still didn’t get the mandatory ‘can I help?’ Obviously Orange Pants + Fat Girl not a good Combo.

What Was Great About This Week:

Other that loosing 5lbs, seeing my oldest friend for the first time in 2 years! As with any bestest buds it felt like yesterday after 5 minutes of chat and by the end of the evening we had put the world to rights! 

What Am I Looking Forward Too:

I have a boot full of grow your own veggies’ and seeing as though I have poison fingers rather than green ones when it comes to plants this could be a £20 disaster if ever I had one, I even have trouble keeping shop bought flowers for their allotted time span! This could be an on going blog saga, what can I say I do like a challenge!

Recipe Of The Week:

Lunch:

Toasted piece of multiseed bread, covered high in roasted veg (courgettes, peppers, aubergine and mushrooms, no oil) with a tablespoon of soft goats cheese crumbled on top.

Delicious and almost sinless just make sure the aubergine are cooked otherwise they have this thick rubbery skin (reminds me of a dolphin skin, which my sister thinks is gross but hysterical.)

 

 

The Simple Things

Posted in Uncategorized on February 9, 2009 by Fatty Bombatty

I have an amazing family, amazingly irritating, amazingly close, amazingly everything, but there mine and I love them dearly, and probably like 90% of people I don’t tell them enough.

This weekend it really did finally all click, for me at least I think it did. I have avoided certain friends and family in the last two years, totally embarrassed by myself and not that I didn’t want to see them but I didn’t want them to face the embarresment of having to own up to be related or friends with me!

One of my favourite cousins, yes I know your not meant to have favourite anythings but I do! And if you knew my cousins you would know why some are SO much preferable to others. Anyway a mix of good old family politics and my own issues had meant i hadn’t spent much time with him or his new family since they moved back to the UK from far away lands. Two weeks ago he told me they were moving back again, I was really gutted quite selfishly, but so disappointed in myself that I had missed out on them as a family.

I plucked up the courage to go round this weekend, and I can hand on heart say I have never been more disappointed in myself. My cousin is a wonderful guy and his little family are amazing, I had the best afternoon I had had in such a long time just drinking tea and playing peek a boo. I know I have missed out but now knowing what I have missed I am going to make the effort even though they will be thousands of miles away, because I really want to be in their lives and also I have realised they want me in theirs!

What Thin People Don’t Understand About Being Fat

Posted in Uncategorized on February 5, 2009 by Fatty Bombatty

Granted there are alot of things that thin people don’t understand about being fat (obvious to those of us that are a little lardy.) Today I thought I would let those people who may not be aware, aware!!

1-Not all Fat people live on a ‘C’ (cake, cookies, chocolate, crisps, curry, chips, Chinese) diet, yes it is more than likely that to have reached the obese category they have munched their way through a fair few of the ‘C’s.’ But Fat people do eat vegetables and fruit too, most fatties I know actually just love all food, whether it be salads, pizza, bread. I have found that I almost feel guilty and a fake buying veggies and fruit sometimes like it is a cover up and underneath my little disguise are bottles of Coke, bags of crisps and bundles of chocolate bars. Theres not!

2-The Fat person on the plane didn’t want to sit next to you either! I have heard this one A LOT, ‘i was on the flight back and this fat person was taking half my seat.’ Flying for fat people is a particularly scary concept, not because we think we will weigh the plane down one side, but genuinely we know we are going to be uncomfortable and the last thing we want to do is make someone else uncomfortable.

3-Fat people do exercise, ok the reason we are fat is because we don’t do enough of it, but we do exercise. I find myself getting stared at when I walk my particularly muscly, fit dog along the beach and I can almost here the comments of maybe some dogs aren’t like their owners.

4-Fat people have feelings too! One thing thin people seem to be totally unaware of is that fat people actually have feelings. I LOVED my old place of work but one thing that would really get me was when they would comment on ugly gross stretch marks, now I would be the 1st to agree yes they are ugly and gross, but if I was talking to a teenager with an obvious acne problem I am pretty sure the last thing I would do is say how gross spots were. Or for instance how tacky and chav tastic black roots are among the un natural blonde’s.

5-Fat people have limited wardrobes. I have some fab friends but one thing they can never get their head around is why I have to plan things so far in advance. The main reason being I need to plan what I wear, fat people have limited wardrobes and therefore every outfit is planned to the washing machine load. So when I say I haven’t got anything to wear it’s not a spoilt brat I don’t have enough Prada, it really means I have NOTHING to wear.

6 – Fat people can have jobs and money! I don’t think this one needs explaining.

7-Not all Fat Girls are lesbians FACT! Has it ever crossed thin peoples minds that fat girls don’t date due to the complete embarrassment and where do you see guys queuing up to date fat girls ( if anyone knows where this Que is please let me know!) Fat girls hang out with other girls (as any thin girl with a fat girl friend will tell you) because actually they can be fun and your boyfriend will never cheat on you with the Fat girl.

I know there are many more but this entry will be crazily long if I list them all in one go!

So remember the next time you see a fat person, they probably are actually having salad for dinner, they hate flying just as much as you, they aren’t all lazy, they do cry occassionally (unless of course they are British,) and they can make great friends.

Week 1 in the Fattybombatty House

Posted in Uncategorized on February 4, 2009 by Fatty Bombatty

I weighed myself yesterday, and I am not going to be one of those people who protests I hadn’t weighed myself in 10 years and all of a sudden I was a complete heffer, and I am in total shock.

YES what reads on the scale is shocking and worrying but NO it is not a complete shock to me, as I have been weighing myself for around 6 months. In that time I have lost around 28lbs not through trying, but I got a puppy which has consequently led me to being a whole lot more active than a year ago, but I wouldn’t go so far as to call myself an active person. See I know what being an active person is all about I was once a really quite the active person, I have always been the lardy one out of my friends but I always exercised, I even trained for a marathon 3 years ago. But with 2 months to go I gave up and I can’t explain why and since then I have piled on the pounds at an astonishing rate. So probably more than most starting out on such a mission I know how far I have to go. This time it doesn’t scare me though!

So my ‘formula’ is take each week at a time set weekly targets, and aim for those, but have the final target sitting there at the back of my mind. This weeks targets:

-Complete 10,000 steps everyday (the recommended level of activity for someone to maintain their weight)

-Loose 5lbs (no it’s not all about the lbs lost but this week I have decided it is!)

For the first time in my entire life I am about to make my heffer figure public, which is probably the scariest thing I have EVER done, to put that in perspective I have white water rafted, boogey boarded down the Zambezi River, been swimming with sharks, and live mostly by myself in an 500 year old cottage in the country and yet telling even this computer how much I weigh is such a major thing for me. Kinda pathetic hey. Here it goes:

WEIGHT WEEK 1 – 265lbs/18.9st/120.5kg

Not the 1st Time!

Posted in Uncategorized on February 3, 2009 by Fatty Bombatty

Ok so it’s not the 1st time that I have attemtped to write a blog, I am not sure why I never managed to stick to it, emotional failure is sometimes hard to pinpoint. Anyway weren’t we always told if you fail try try again. So thats what I am doing….trying again.

I seem to start every week trying again, trying to get fit, trying to loose weight, trying to be a better person. Every time a Monday or the 1st of the month swings round I try. By the 3rd day I have failed. Tomorrow I am going to try again at all the above, not because it is the 1st or a Monday but in fact because it is a nothing day!

WEDNESDAY-what is a Wednesday it’s a nothing day, it’s the middle of the week not quite the beginning of the week not quite the weekend just the middle. But today I have decided Wednesday is going to be a ‘something’ day for me. I have waited for the epiphany for the last 24 years and it never arrives for me. Today I have decided I am fed up of waiting, because lets face it if i wait much longer I am going to be fat (fatter) miserable (ok more miserable) and Lonely (ok even more lonely if that is possible.) Today I want tomorrow to be my epiphany day and sod it if the epiphany won’t come to me I’ll just make my own damned Epiphany.

I know exactly how I am going to LOOSE WEIGHT, GET FITTER AND BE A BETTER PERSON, blimey I have had 24 years to come up with the right formula, I just haven’t had the balls to put it into action.

Oh and the reason behind the Blog name:

Definition of Fatty-bombatty according to the urban dictionary:   

Fattybombatty – 1 definition – An insult or [cuss] normally used against fat girls. Same meaning as [lard arse].
Personally I think this is an awesome insult, it’s now hurtful it rhyms and shit me I’d much rather be called this than Obese, Big Boned or Large or some other ridiculous PC phrase for being a lard arse!!!
So wish me luck me I think Im going to need it!
