I’m on to you!

I’ve a suspicion that for a few months now I’m being “subtweeted” by a guy on Twitter. For those of you that don’t know, subtweeting is where you post a status that is targeted at someone without actually mentioning (or tagging) them. It’s often because you want to mock them [Read more…]

And so it begins… again.

I’ve rejoined the gym. During lockdown I gained almost two and half stone and am absolutely disgusted with myself. That being said, if the scales are right this morning, since realising my stupidity and monitoring my food intake I’m not down a stone and a half. Currently, and I’m ashamed [Read more…]

Working on the 80/20

So in my efforts to get thinner and fitter I knew exercise was going to play some part in it. Every diet plan you join… Hang on, no, not every* diet plan does mention exercise and it’s important you know that. Why? Because it’s the difference between and good diet [Read more…]

Closing Rather Weighty This

So, I’ve decided to shut down one of my other sites. The site Rather Weighty This was great when I started it and I used it when I need to but it was set up for the wrong reasons. I wanted to separate my weight loss journey from my every [Read more…]
