The Truth Hurts but It Will Set You Free

There was a time when I could blame depression and all sorts of other things for the fact that I am over-weight. A BMI of 30 is not good for anyone.

I can talk about personality and inner beauty but once you are over 30 years old, you need to keep healthy.

Yes, I had a recent break-up with a guy who told me the truth about how fat I am. It hurt and I can't say I like him much for it but like all things in life, I take it as a lesson that I should learn from.

Suzi Edwards once said that you get to an age where you choose your bum or your face. I want to choose both.

Being healthy in my mind, makes me want to be healthy in all other ways.

So, today I am 75kg. I'm aiming for 70kg, at first.

Encourage me. Love me. Tell me it is possible. Don't let me forget that life is too important to waste on a large pack of fries with gravy.

PS I can lose weight but he will still be an asshole.

I've been reading your blog since we first met, and I'm surprised by how moved I still am by every piece you write.

I know you can do it. There's lots of us out there working on the same thing.

SerengetiSunset - Thank you for always saying exactly what I need to hear :)

Kathryn, it's good to know that I'm not the only one going through it. Thanks for saying so.

Anon, I love Calorie King and was hoping for an iPhone app of it. Instead I found a great free one called MyFitnessPal that lets me record everything I eat and tells me how many calories I have left in the day. It's awesome!

Here is the thing. When I met you I noticed that you had the biggest smile/softest skin and most spectacular bosom that I had ever seen. Those are the physical things that I remember about you.

Beware of people who say cruel things incidentally. Always look at their motivation for saying them.

Gabfran, thank you. The thing is that I want to be healthy and this is a good kickstart for me. Don't worry, I'm not doing it for anyone else but beautiful me :)
