8 weeks have passed since my last post was written. I've taken some time to just focus on feeling better and coming to terms with the fact that I am growing a human. That's terrifying. There is a little person inside me right now. Wow. So run down of what's been going on.... Week 13 … Continue reading 20 week scan…
On Tuesday 9th January 2018 at 23.55 my amazing and courageous gran Elsie Grace Scott lost a battle she had been fighting for too long. A few years ago in 2014 she was diagnosed with T Cell Lymphoma. She had her first stint of chemo. It seemed to work. All was good life went on. … Continue reading 2018 so far….
Falling off the wagon is easy. It's too easy. Especially when 'go on...it's Christmas/new year' is the catchphrase of every chocolate/biscuit wielding person you meet!! My will power right up until Christmas eve was iron clad. I had set days I knew I was going to be off plan but I was prepared. I got … Continue reading Falling off the Wagon!
It's inevitable. It happens to everyone at some point in their lives, be it dieting, studying, working etc. It usually happens to me quite quickly (as I'm sure you will have gathered if you've read my previous posts!) I've been following CWP now for 14 weeks today. My complacency only kicked in about a week … Continue reading Complacency
How many people jumped straight to a nice tasty food reward/Treat? I've done well on my diet this week....let's reward that with a lovely empire biscuit!!!

Sign up and get weighed for the first time this journey. 16st5 ... what!?!? I can honestly say what went through me was … Continue reading Diet Attempt Number 4 – Slimming World
So by 2014 I had horribly failed to lose weight on 2 separate diet plans. I decided that this going to classes and following a plan clearly isn't meant for me. I mean I've tried a few and they just didn't work (i know this is not fact...but it is what I convinced myself!) So … Continue reading Diet Attempt Number 3 – Flying Solo/MyFitnessPal
Fast Forward to 2012. I'm almost finished my training for nursing. I work as a home carer. My student uniforms I got at the start of my training are snug and uncomfortable. I fear if I bend over the wrong way I will burst out of them. Rather than face the embarrassment of going to … Continue reading Diet Attempt Number 2 – Scottish Slimmers
So I realised I'd gained a fair bit of weight. I vowed never again would I step on scales and have them read higher than 13st13. That's what I weighed. At 24. Now back at uni for a second time, training to be a nurse. I thought - I have to lead by example. I … Continue reading Diet Attempt Number 1 – Weight Watchers
As you will know if you looked at the "About Me" page before venturing here my name is Debbie and I have been overweight (obese if you use BMI calculations) for most of my adult life. When I was in school and for my first few years at uni I was always "chunkier" than the … Continue reading The Beginnings of Being FAT
