watchURweight goes live!


Just a quick update to say that the new blog has gone live and a new photo of me (128 pounds lighter!).




Update: August 2014


Just wanted to check in with you all. I have now lost 124 pounds!

I am very close to passing my driving test. I should be completed by mid-October.

The 20th of September is the 5th anniversary of my fathers death and the day I sit my driving theory test.

My therapy is now monthly and no longer weekly or fortnightly. I have learned so much and progressed so quickly. I am glad I was able to share so much of it with all of you.

I started a new job 3 weeks ago and it is going very well. Good chance I will be made permanent and the money is good.

I have been on a date which went well but sadly there was no spark between us. There are many other guys out there and chatting to them all is fun. I am optimistic.

Finally with regards to the future of this blog I am still ironing out what I want to do next. Some small gems of ideas are around. As promised I will be sure to inform you all when I know what the final plan is.

Until next time…be good to each other!

Rejection Is The Greatest Aphrodisiac


I am so sorry!

I have neglected you all terribly this past week. I have been full time on work and my heart wasn’t in it. The weather is boiling here and I have gotten through 4 (yes four) books!

I shall come back to you all soon with the second part of my Infected With Fat story and a few other surprises.

I shall leave you with news that I have now lost 7 stone and 5 pounds! That is 103 pounds for all you lovely American readers.

On the romance front…things got interesting…then intense…then weird! I shall be back with you all very soon.

Infected With Fat: Part 1


The moment I realised I wanted to, had to, do it was about this time last year. It was a complete fluke. A basic problem became a full emergency. Vomiting blood, ECG’s, intravenous antibiotics and uncontrollable shivering at 5am.

As we rushed to A&E all sorts went through my mind. I had had a bladder infection earlier in the week but the antibiotics had started working, though, the day before there was blood again in my urine. What could be wrong?

The hospital was only a mile away. I was panicking. I had never felt this way before and could not stop shaking. My teeth rattled in my mouth. My partner at the time was very good. He took control and helped me dress.

I’d made the mistake of taking a warm shower to try and warm up. The Nurse looked at me disapprovingly when I said this. I was rushed past waiting queues of people on a trolley to an area of the hospital that was right under an air conditioning unit. My temperature was dangerously high.

The infection was in my blood.

Daily Prompt: Rare Medium


Work, eat, hard not to cheat
Monotomy is not that good for me
Need a break
Trying hard to make
My life back into what is was

I’ve made it better, each day better
Whilst being true to me
It’s hard to go on
To let the show go on
Whilst paddling so hard beneath

Secrets kept and no respect
For where I might have been
I guess that I can only be
The change that I want
To see in me…
