I Am Tired Of Being Fat: Well You Do Not Have To Be Fat Forever

Cartoon Of A Fat Man

I used to say I am tired of being fat until the day I realised I was the only one who was responsible for my weight. Ultimately it was my fault that I was so overweight (nearly double my original weight before my accident) My fault. However, if you do have a medical condition, then it will more than likely not be your fault.

I knew one day that I must change. And I am assuming that you have reached this point as well seeing as you are reading this post?

I Am Tired Of Being Fat Says An Overweight Cartoon Man. He Looks Angry

Social And Health

I knew that I really had to sort myself out, not only for social aspects but also for my own personal healths sake. I realised that I had just turned 38 and was certainly not getting any younger. And so, I wanted to have lost at  LEAST 4 stones (56 lbs) by the time I had reached the ripe old age of 40. So sick was I of people glancing at me as if they were saying “Look at the state of that”

I was well aware that my lifespan was growing shorter with every day that was passing, every burger I ate, every packet or 10 of crisps that I munched my way through.

No, I really had grown tired of being fat.  NOW as I have said before, the ball really had landed in my court and the choices I had were to ignore everything and just carry on, or, grab the bull by the horns and really REALLY try this time to make a real go of this weight loss attempt

Well, I guess what you’re dying to really know is if I hit my target of 56 lbs in just under 2 years? Yes, I did. In fact, I hit it without any problems. And I went a long way over it and this was all trying to naturally lose the weight as well. Without the aid of any of these weight loss pills. You can get hold of them far too easily in my humble opinion. This is no answer to you saying I am tired of being fat.

Fitting It In Around Work

Now I am well aware that this is not a massive amount but when fitting it around work and social activities I was still more than pleased with the result.

Following this, I will tell you exactly what it was that I did to reach my goal/s as they did turn into goals just as soon as I became aware of how to lose weight naturally.A Hammer And Spanner That Symbolizes Work

I will not lie to you. It was a very tough challenge that I had set myself as there was no support for me at all. And it also happened that I didn’t have any computer experience. So I had to rely on going to the library which as I’m sure you can imagine was a massive inconvenience for me. It was not very far away but It felt like a really long journey at first. Given the condition, my body was in. However, I was sick of saying I am tired of being fat.

Thankfully this was to get easier and easier as time went by as I was becoming considerably lighter and lighter simply by following some of the fantastic information I had been reading.

You see I have said before in other posts when I said I am tired of being fat. I did start to do a lot of research. As it is your friend dear reader. Whatever you do you do not want to start this challenge without first doing some preparation and readying yourself for a difficult task. After all, is losing weight easy to do, no, it is not, but I amongst countless others are living proof that you can do it once you are ready up to go.

I Am Tired Of Being Fat

I can hear you wondering right now what did I do and how and when. Well sure, I will inform you of my daily routine. The only things that change really are the varieties of foods that I am eating. This happened for about 7 years prior to my disability I might add.

The absolute first thing I do when I wake up fresh from a good nights rest (hopefully) fully refreshed is I do some gentle stretching exercises. Then I actually went for a 2-mile jog around a housing estate and park. Now I am an early riser so there was little traffic on the roads at this time and very rarely did I see anyone. This was great. There were fewer distractions.

You really should read and learn the reasons why exercising straight away is actually more beneficial by going here.

Once I had returned home I then went for a quick shower before I had some breakfast. Obviously a very healthy breakfast. Now I am also very aware that a select few of the readers of this may be too obese/Fat or unfit to do this activity. So this part is just for people who are wishing to lose some weight and/or just get more healthy.

Then there were two things that I used to do before exiting my home for work was to prepare some lunch for myself and also make up a carry-jug of juice. Every morning I did this without fail.

Once I had prepared then off I went.

Mid-Morning Snack

For my mid-morning snack very often I would eat a hand-full, sometimes two of cashews. As these are  REALLY healthy for you. This would usually be followed by an apple or a yoghurt depending on how I felt. There were, however, countless times that I was at the beginning really hungry and could have eaten a mountain of food but the cravings very soon went away. Once my body was getting better at taking in the healthy food which it was receiving.

Lunchtime for me was always a tempting one. I could usually have eaten anything and lots of it. Alas, though, for I had made my mind up to get healthy. And that was what I was going to do so, eat healthy foods for lunch I did.

As I grew more used to this way of eating. It really did become easier and like second nature to me. Follow a similar thing and you really cannot go wrong with this!


So this was my day for a long time. Then I, unfortunately, suffered an accident and went from well under 11 stones (147 lbs)  to a massive 256 lbs. You can read a little about me here. It seems that now a weight loss campaign found me. I did not choose it!

Although my life was different now, I did not want to say I am tired of being fat. Not anymore.

I think it would be your wisest choice to purchase some home gym fitness equipment to really REALLY help you to lose the much-desired weight

  1. Hi Simon,

    Very good post and so true what you say about it is no one else’s fault but our own for our own weight issues. I do have some medical issues that make exercising and eating healthy really hard. I also have terrible eating habits anyways and I really would love to make the change, but it is a real struggle for me. I had a couple of major surgeries and prior to the first surgery, I was up to 45 minutes a day on my elliptical which for me is really awesome!

    I have hypoglycemia so I have issues doing a lot of exercises because my blood sugar drops and I get dizzy. After I had the first surgery I wasn’t able to get back into it because I was so weak after the surgery and I just have not been able to get back into it. I also have the problem with every time I commit to myself to try and eat healthier my blood sugar plummets.

    I once had a stress test for my heart years ago and they make you run on a treadmill for X amount of time. I believe they said I had to do it for 5 minutes. I don’t think I made it the 5 minutes because I blacked out from that little amount of exercise. I told the guy I was not able to go anymore and he kept saying I had to keep going and then everything went black.

    I woke up on the cot and they said my heart was fine, but this is the problem I have when I try to exercise. I start getting extremely hot and feel myself fading away if I try to go for more than a couple of minutes.

    1. firstly thanks for your kind comment and secondly, oh dear what a horrible predicament to be faced with it really is. Especially when exercise is such an important factor in controlling your weight. Oh mate I really do feel for you that must be so frustrating it really must!

  2. Great post Simon. I think a combination of diet and exercise is the right way to lose weight, but I also think the “right” mindset is very important. What I mean by this is understanding that everything takes time and weight loss is no different! Be consistent and make things habitual and voila, you’re already done the hard part. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Yes Eve, mindset is very very important to, it is how we perceive our journey that ultimately if done in a positive manner will lead us to success. Without the correct mindset you WILL fail of that there is no doubts what so ever!

  3. Very inspiring article Simon. I used to be overweight, and I’m currently trying to lose more, so I know how the struggle feels. Like Pete said, the hardest part is actually starting, because until you do that you just feel that it’s pointless to start.

    Regardless, it goes without saying that it pays off in the end. I think the lesson here is consistency. Thanks for the post, Simon, it’s always useful to hear someone else’s story and their regime. PS, thanks for the cashew information! I actually thought nuts were detrimental till I saw the article you linked!

    1. haha thanks for the comment and a big yes to nuts. All nuts do have fat which is why it puts people off eating them but what they do not realise is that it is a good healthy fat and it is nothing like the kind of fat that you get from “Junk” foods which just increases your waistline. The fat that nuts contains does not! It is just unfortunate that I do not like them . It is not the texture I don’t think but more the taste, although, I do love coconut!

  4. Nice post. I know that I came to that point in my life when I wanted to change, and it was a long journey, but well worth it. I think the biggest things I had to do was making the time for exercise and food prep, and of course actually starting out. The first step was really the hardest for me. I had a lot of false start, but sticking to it is the way to go for real result. Thanks for the great post!

    1. Cheers Pet your comment is highly valued and as I said earlier I was tired of being fat and decided enough was enough. You are right in what you say though, actually getting going with your attempt is the hardest. As you know none of it is easy is it! But I found trying to get in to the swing of things very hard indeed!

  5. Nicely done, Simon. You hit the nail on the head in your very first line. And you’ll never be able to affect positive change within yourself if you’re busy pointing your finger and blaming others for your own circumstances. The only way home is to accept responsibility, empower yourself and DO something about it.

    Like YOU did! Good for you! That’s how winning is done!

    I’ve never been what you would consider obese. However, I remember clearly being very unhappy with myself almost exactly 2 years ago. I recall exactly standing in front of a mirror saying to myself, “Kev, what are you doing? Get it together!” Two years later … I look and feel better at 42 years old than I ever have. Ever.

    Because I owned it and took action.

    Keep up the great work, Simon, and congratulations on your success.
    To your health!

    1. Thank you very much Indeed Kevin for your very generous remarks. They are highly appreciated. Yes when the truth was told I was tired of being fat and finally I decided on doing something about it. It was without any question the best decision that I could ever have made, for sure!

  6. This is so true we are responsoble, I also believe it goes desperatly than just as.

    Sometimes we know no better as our ill educated parents pass there eating habit down to us
