100 Steps To Go


Last month I wrote an update on what the current situation is in regards to the fertility treatments.  In short, I have had six rounds of IUI (artificial insemination) with no luck, now I need to take a break to lose a further 15-20 kilos before we can start treatments again. I was a bit worried about how it was all going to go.  I wanted the hormones out of my system so I could feel normal again, and it worked. Once they were gone I felt much more myself, the clouds in my head started to part and I ... Read More »

Even Brando Liked Some Wang


I saw a video today that I really liked.  It’s part of the It Gets Better movement, which is a collection of messages from people all over the world, including celebrities, aimed at gay teenagers who suffer at the hands of bullies. I love this video because it’s funny, it’s cool and it has a great message.  I also love it because at the end she takes the time to make the point that it’s not just gay teens who get bullied, something I think a lot of people forget.  Kids get bullied because they are too fat, too skinny, ...

When Project Baby and Project Fatass Collide


In order to start with my fertility treatments I had to lose over 80 lbs.  Here in the Netherlands they won’t give you hormone treatments unless you are beneath a certain BMI, due to the risk of hypertension and other complications.  I did really well for about 1.5 years, but I had no idea how difficult it was going to be once I started the hormone therapy. This stuff is making me batshit crazy, and hungry!  It’s like PMS all month long.  Seriously, it’s absolute insanity! For months I followed a very strict diet which excluded most carbs, all sugar ...

30 Days of Truth: Day 29


ha!  Where do I start?  Do I have to just pick one thing? I’d like to change my weight… I’ve not lost a thing in the last three months, but with the fertility treatments and all the hormones that are being pumped into me, it’s taking everything I have just to maintain the weight I had gotten to.  At some point, either when the fertility treatments end or after I have a child (cross fingers) I’d like to continue with my weight loss journey and reach my final goals. I want to see what I look like at a truly ... Read More »

Confessions of a Fat Girl: Fat and Feminine?


These are my nails, fake ones.  Pretty, aren’t they?  I got them done at Nagelstudio Ellen in Barendrecht and I couldn’t be happier with them. She is awesome, she also took the photos.  Check out the swirlys, cute huh? You may be wondering why I got acrylic nails. I mean, that’s a little lush for a housewife, isn’t it?  A bit extravagant? Maybe even a bit silly?  Not really. They are my gift to myself for continuing to lose weight and get closer to my goals. Something I can have every day to look at, feel pretty and smile.  I ...

The Day My Husband Finally Got In My Pants


Today was laundry day and part of laundry day is wearing things you probably wouldn’t wear otherwise, so that all the stuff you do want to wear can be washed. At least that’s how it works in my house… or maybe it’s because I always put the laundry off for too long.  It could be that. Whatever… tonight while I was making dinner my husband and I were laughing at the pants I was wearing.  A pair of my favorite stretchy 3/4 length pants that has gotten me through many many summers. They were worn a lot, because mostly everything ... Read More »

101 List – Fly Home To Canada Alone


No, even though it may seem like it, I have not fallen off the face of the earth.  I’ve just been laying low and getting back into the swing of things after returning to the Netherlands.  I’ve not been feeling particularly bloggy and I figured I’d wait until I did rather than trying to force it. Anyhow, this is about my 101 List entry about flying home to Canada by myself, which I DID! Yay me! For many of you this probably doesn’t seem like the biggest accomplishment in the world, but for me it’s been all about getting over ... Read More »

The Fat Lady


No I don’t mean me, you dick. Ok maybe I do, sorta.  Still, it wasn’t nice of you to just assume it was about me.  Just sayin’. This is The Fat Lady: No, seriously, the fish is actually called The Fat Lady!  Check the link if you don’t believe me. Anyway, you know what a fish means!  That’s right, I am the Less Fat Lady!  Another weight loss milestone has come and gone.  This mother of a fish weighs a whopping 60 lbs, which is just 2 lbs less than what I have lost to date!  I’ve lost 62 lbs!  ...

Home Again…


As you can see, I’m back posting on my blog again.  I’ve been back from France for a little over a week and am just settling back in and getting used to life here in Rotterdam again. Our holiday was fantastic and I will soon be bombarding you with photos of some of the things I’ve seen as well as endless jabbering about how unbelievably relaxing it was, how much fun we had with Xander’s family and how in love we both are with the south of France. For now I am busy getting back into a routine and adjusting ... Read More »

Confessions of a Fat Girl


On March 6th I had finally lost 50 lbs.  It took me a while to lose the last 1-2 lbs to get there, which feels silly I mean it’s ONLY 1-2 lbs.  It seemed to go on forever though as I had reached that dreaded plateau everyone told me was coming.  Since then I’ve been teeter tottering back and forth within a range of 5 lbs.  Some weeks I’m down 5 lbs, and other weeks I’m up.  I know it has to do with the fact that everyone always reaches a plateau at some point and a change in routine ...
