Weekly Weigh-In: April 22, 2019

I am probably literally eating myself to death. A few years ago, I'd have been fine with that, to be honest, after Zero died. But I've finally hit a point where I actually care about what happens to me. I care that I'd in pain all the time. I care that I feel like crap when I eat the wrong types of food. I have my back pain, my migraines, I have bowel issues, I have a mutant leg which is worse than it ever was, and my foot's so swollen that I can't get it into my trainers on some days.

The Problem With Blogging For More Than A Decade…

...is that eventually, you're bound to run out of ideas of what to say. I mean, I've been blogging via FATGIRLslim since 2004, and a lot has changed since then. Blogging is not like it used to be. Don't get me wrong: I'm not quitting, and if I ever did decide to stop blogging, forever,… Continue reading The Problem With Blogging For More Than A Decade…

In Which I’ve Got The Dreaded Lurgy

I can't believe it's the end of November already. Dad went up the loft today to bring down... dun dun dun... THE CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS. We probably won't put them up until NEXT weekend or so, or whenever Mum gets her strength back, but since we already have gifts to wrap, we needed the wrapping paper… Continue reading In Which I’ve Got The Dreaded Lurgy
