Shitbird Scale Says…


 12 February 2017    1.25lbs off  

252lbs.  Well I had an epic battle with the Shitbird Scale this morning. Having trotted happily to the bathroom expecting another decent loss,  this one pound loss was awarded begrudgingly after the weigh-day tango around every tile. Shitbird thing!!!


5 February 2017    3.5lbs off  

253lbs.   I had a feeling in my water that this week’s number would be a good one…I feel like I worked hard and I earned it. That’s 13lbs off so far this year, and I’m happy with that!

Wonder if I can get under 18 next week… 🙂


29 January 2017    2.5lbs off  

257lbs. That’s better 🙂  A good solid week. We’re within touching distance of the end of the month and I’ve evicted 9.5lbs out of my pants since I woke up with an attitude on the 2nd Jan. Shall we aim for another 2.5 this week..? Hell yeah!


22 January 2017  0.75lb off.

259lbs. I knew I shouldn’t have loaded my toes with that nail varnish, I could have got a whole pound across the line if I’d stuck with the half-a-toe look 🙂

You know what, I’ll take it…almost a pound is better than no pounds, right?


  15 January 2017  3.75lbs off…HELLO!

260lbs. That’s more like it. Mind you, it comes with a warning…all of a sudden after me and the Shitbird Scale had built a level of trust over the last 3 weeks, we did the weigh-day tango and got 3 different numbers ranging from no pounds off to five pounds off. This was the most consistent though so I’m having it. Toenails are getting embarrassing now 🙂


8 January 2017    2.5lbs off.…nice!

264lbs. I’ll take that thanks very much, a good solid week. I’m feeling strong with six good days’ worth of skin in the game, and a brand new shiny week awaits. What we going after this week..? Let’s aim for 18:10 🙂

Clearly no progress on the toenails…


1 January 2017

266lbs. Okay…that’s eight and a half stones – or 120lbs – north of what it should say. New year, new start, new attitude and I’m not enduring the ritual humiliation of posting one of these   golden fucking nuggets every week unless it’s going downwards, and quickly.

Watch this space 🙂

*note to self* sort your bloody toenails out
