Holy crap ! I've been sitting here for such a looong time not knowing where to start with this thing. So I thought after much soul searching I would start at the beginning. First though I would like to make a few notable mentions on how and why I've started this blog.

I've been an avid reader of a few blogs over the last couple of years and it was extremely comforting to me to learn that I was:-

1. Not alone
2.Other people were experiencing the same "challenges" in regard to weight loss and life.

I have been a EXTREMELY private person, I don't usually tell anyone how I'm feeling not even my family(hence why my arse is 10 pick hammers wide) so ,I thought I would not be able to do this. But, last July, my baby brother was tragically killed in a workplace accident and it has made me realise that this life is to short and should be lived to the max, as there are no second chances. So, here I am, this blog will be my therapy and I hope I make you laugh more than I make myself cry, my next post I will start at the beginning of how's and whys.

Starting from the beginning is always good!
Life IS too short.
These blogs are great motivation. We don't know each other in "reality" so we can be brutaly honest with each other and say whatever we feel.
I've found my blog a great outlet to talk about my ups and downs and get it all out rather than bottle it up. And having a variety of feedback is really helpful :o)

Wow, the lay-out changed already! lol
Ok here's how to do the ticker...
I use "3FatChicks" tickers so i'll show you around that one.
Go to
And follow the prompts.When you've made your ticker they will give you a code.
They have 3 codes to chose from, use the HTML code.
Sign into Blogger and go to "Settings". Paste the ticker code into the "description" box, and save your settings.
The ticker will then be at the top of your page :o)

....And each time your weight changes you have to redo the ticker and put the new code on your blog :o)

It is a good way to get things off your chest that is for sure.

It has helped me loose the weight I have lost and I have met some great friends along the way.

I think the only thing you can do is be honest with yourself and tell it how you see it and make this about you and not others.

Woohooo you are going to be an inspiration to all hun I just know it.

Love Chubbymum
