Tumbles and Tumblr

I've said about doing this for ages now. Dieting comics. Well. I've started! I'm using tumblr, just to get a feel for it really and to try and to keep on the weight-loss train.

I've usually got people telling me that either:

 a.) I've got such a pretty face it's a
shame that I'm heavier than I should be 
 b.) Don't be silly, you don't need to loose weight.

I'm not listening to either of these two things as I have decided that I want to loose weight and become healthier for myself. I've been invited to a wedding party in January and I don't want to buy anymore larger clothes. (I can't afford to, I'm buying a shoebox house!)

I'm trying to figure out what works for me and WHY I am compelled to eat when I'm not hungry. (There's a whole back-catalog of issues there I think) I'm going to figure out and draw my emotional eating triggers and the things I can do to counter-act them. I'm going to draw nummy foods and recipes, the exercise embarrassments I inflict upon myself and I'm going to document the changes in me.

 I'm getting back to me, I'm much happier than I was a few weeks ago (thanks to my amazing friends and supportive family) Work is amazing - I am sworn to secrecy, but I love designing toys for a living - I am living my own personal dream and things are starting to come together.

I once had a conversation with one of my very best friends about what I think makes a person attractive. It's a person who makes the best of themselves. Through confidence, health, passion etc... looking after yourself and making yourself the best you can be (without sounding like a cliche crazy person) is what makes people love you. Because you love yourself.

Unfortunately. I'm all full of incite this evening, but I've just watched The Great British Bake Off and tomorrow I know that I'm going to be craving that slab of cake. Hell. I'm going to be dreaming of it.

Let the drawn diet diary commence!


  1. I didn't have the drive to lose weight until I decided to do it for myself. It's hard at first but it has a way of building momentum as you start to feel better and better. Good luck!

  2. Thanks Matt! I've already started feeling more positive about everything, so something's working! :D

  3. I'm already sitting on the edge of my seat. It's a hard, but righteous path

  4. I've just started the same plan, and I'd definitely recommend the MyFitnessPal app if you've got a smartphone. I've been using it for about a week now and it's so good! Good luck!
