Lindsey: My weight loss in pictures (and other animals!)

I’ve now lost 10.5lbs! The dieting is really working and I am starting to notice the difference with my clothes feeling a little looser now. I still can’t actually see the difference though, which is a bit annoying :/

Anyway, on to my ridiculous ‘weightloss in the form of animals’ blog – 10.5lbs is the equivalent of….

An African penguin!

These cuties are pretty big too, they grow up to 70cm tall. I’ve lost the equivalent of a 2 foot penguin, which is pretty amazing, even if I do say so myself.

In other news, I went to the gym last night, and one of the meatheads there was SO RUDE to me. I know him vaguely, just to say hello to. I’d had a good workout: I’d run a mile, done the cross-trainer and was doing some weights. I was towelling down one of the weight machines after I’d used it, and Mr. Meathead came over and called me a “Sweaty Betty.” I thought it was kind of rude but, whatever, I thought it was just a misguided attempt at being funny. Then he points at my slightly wobbly belly and helpfully suggests I should do some abs exercises. Excuse me?! How rude is that?! I know I have some wobbly bits, that’s why I’m busting my arse at the gym, you neanderthal. I really hope he’s at the gym more often, he’s really great for my self-esteem.


Who is Lindsey?

Hi! I’m Lindsey. Although I haven’t had WLS, I have struggled with my weight since childhood. I’ll be blogging here from time to time with updates on how I’m trying to keep myself trim, my ups and downs at the gym and lots of other weight-related issues.
