The big_mummy experience and weigh in! *warning* long post!

Do you like the new blog style? Bare with me. Site maintenance!

Well hello there...

I know you've all missed me terribly. I hope your weight loss is going strong despite my lovely self being absent the last couple of
days. I hope to catch up with y'all pretty soon!

Firstly because its amazing. Weigh in results.
Current weight: 19 stones 4 pounds (270lbs)
Previous weight: 19 stones 13 pounds (279 lbs)
Highest weight: 21 stones 3 pounds (297 lbs)
Weight loss this week: 9LB loss.
Total weight lost: 1 stone 13po
unds (27 lbs)

That's right people. I lost all of the shitty gain and a pound more. Clearly a water/sodium gain last week but never the less I'm down an extra pound. One more pound for an even two stone. This week feels like progress. Ok so enough crowing....

Some of you may know that I went to visit Sarah a.k.a wenc
h a.k.a. big_mummy this week. Yup. A blogger meet up. Also Chuck was around to show us a good time. Man, that chicken is naughty....

Several awesome nsv's happened whilst visiting her.
We went on a 12k walk. oh yes.
I made it into several items of smaller sized clothes
Sarah gave up her scale.
We discovered lower in fat spring rolls. A big weakness
of mine.
There maybe more... my memory sucks. Sarah feel free to remind me...

I really cannot begin to say how great a time I had meeting her. Seriously. LOL. This is starting to sound like I'm besotted with her but she is such a great person. I felt we really connected and it wasn't just the weight loss thing that brought us together. I was, if I'm honest, worried that it might be different in person and we would cling to that but alas not to worry as we got on like a house on fire. Even if she is wench (for example: the night before her weigh in she makes herself soup. the night before my weigh in? A roast dinner!) Don't believe anything she says on her blog. I DID NOT TEMPT HER WITH MALIBU.

I got to visit London too. Chuck had an awesome time ther
e. We got loads of frickin' steps in wandering around. She beat me every day with the most steps. What an early rising wench she is. The weather was gorgeous. A pigeon did shit on me. How disgusting is that? I got to see where she blogs from... to be impressed with her cooking skills (I have come away with some awesome recipes/cooking tips) and be generally wowed by what a generous, fun, lovely lady with the dirtiest laugh in England Sarah was. She even packed me a lunch for the train which was foodgasmic by the way. (the man opposite me on the train drooled at the sandwich)

Hotel Big_Mummy is worth the visit. I recommend it wh
ole heartedly. I'm worn out from the walking, happy from the loss and sad to be back sleeping on the fucking airbed. I have already invited myself back! She is stuck with me for life. She best get her arse up to Manchester once I move there.

*edit*
The cheeky wench that she is just said she was disapp
ointed that I didn't rate her in stars.

*p.s Sarah now likes to be called Wench. So y'know if you're posting on her blog show her some love by addressing her that way.

LMAO!!!!! (that is all) I wanna see what kind of comments this generates and if your lesbian love for me is as transparent here as in person.

I LOVE the new blog style. Noticed you playing with it the last couple of days. When you're ready to give up your secrets for how it's done ...

We HAVE Missed You!
HOLYSHIT! on the 9POUNDS!!! You and the Wenchness need to visit each other more often!

Can we all come over and visit you both?

Welcome Home, Simone.

TJ said...

WOW! GREAT JOB ON THE LOSS!! WHOOHOO!!! So glad that you had a fun time visiting! :) Lovin the new look too! :)

Oh Simone, didn't I tell you that you'd drop that weight like nothing?! Congrats!!!

I'm pretty sure I'm climbing the wall again this week...PMS and water retention...I hate this part of getting the awesomeness that are boobs.

Dina said...

I love your new layout, very cool!

Glad to hear you had fun, you and big mummy are the UK version of me & Tricia's rampant lesbianism.

F. McButter Pants said...

Love the new look. Miss you terribly.

A big Holy Crap on the 9 lbs gone. You rocked it over the weekend.

I laughed at the lesbian lover thing. I bet you two had a grand time. I am so glad to hear the happy in your "voice"

Glad your back, sorry it's on the airbed. Not long till you return to school. You have made it thru the summer!

You should be really proud of your efforts, not just in weight loss, but you didn't kill your sister either!!!!

1st - I love the new blog layout. 2nd - thank goodness you are back. You were missed ALOT. 3rd - OMG!!! 9 pounds?!?! What the hell have you been doing? I am sooooo SUPER jealous.But I have to say, NO ONE DESERVES IT MORE THAN YOU!! Did you hear that? I was shouting. Ha, ha. You all make living in England sound awesome. Makes me think I need to travel. We never take trains anywhere here, we like to pollute the air with car exhaust.

Yo...where's the pics???

Way to go on the 9 pounds!

Fat Lazy Guy said...

First off, welcome back! Good to read you again. And HUGE congrats on the loss! It sounds like you had an amazing trip :)

About the layout. I'm glad you got rid of that picture you had as your header. That wasn't you, not the you now, at least. This layout... I'm going to have to go against the grain and say I'm not a fan. The header is busy and hard to work out. The notepad thing is cool, but there's nothing on the right so it's not harnessing all the available real estate. But if you like it, that's all that matters. I'm just a random dude on the internet :)

Fat[free]Me said...

OK, do I have to post this, like, several times or summat, LOL.

Seriously, lovin the new format - it is Kewl.

Was most jealous of your visit to The Wench - I kinda knew you two would have a great time. Imagining that dirty laugh. Why am I not surprised?

When do you get back to Manchester? I will be visiting Sheilagh in Runcorn over the next few months, might just have to pop by yours, heh-heh!

And well-flippin-done on the fantasticamazingwonderful weight loss!

Fat Daddy said...

Awesome loss! Always will read if it includes lesbians...and you throw in the word wench, and I am hooked.

I really like your layout too.

Carlos said...

Sounds like Chuckles might have received the 3some he so richly deserves! Kick ass loss!

arielcircleofnine said...

WOWWWSERS a 9 lb loss?? You rocked it lady, way to make that come back just like we knew you would!
Nice new look to the blog. Last time I got adventurous somehow I broke the ability to receive comments. Kinda counter productive! hehehe

SeaShore said...

I really like the new look!

9 POUNDS! Hold crap!

Sounds like you had a great meet up. :) Well, except for the pidgeon... eww.

Jenn said...

I'm liking the new look, though I miss the pic of you biting into that big sandwich, lol!
Congrats on the loss! I KNEW you would lose that water weight, AND you scored one more pound, yes!
Sounds like you have a good friend in big_mummy - very cool!

MackAttack said...

Losing Waist! said...

Shit! How did I miss this?? Oh yeah! I was buried in resentment towards the inlaws!

I have dug out, and I am saying NINE POUNDS IS FUCKING FANTASTIC! YOU DID SO GREAT!
