It's Not All About Me

I feel like all I ever do is talk about myself on this blog and it is embarrassing. I actually hate talking about myself (despite the fact I have written over 300 blog posts about myself) so today I am going to talk about someone else...

Since I started on the lap band thing and began eating healthier and exercising, AJ (who lives with me), has been swept up in this new lifestyle kind of by accident. In the past year that I have been working on my health and fitness, he has gone ahead and lost 15 kilos (33 lbs) and become a runner in the process. Jesus, he makes it look easy.

Before... 95 kilos... and yes that is me in the background ruining his photo

After... 80 kilos... 15 kilos down and laser eye surgery so he doesn't have to wear glasses ever again

I know 15 kilos isn't a huge amount to those of us that have a lot to lose, but I think he has done friggin awesome and looks hot!

Oh god, he'll kill me if he ever finds this! :-)


  1. Don't be embarrassed! The blog is about you, after all. And if that is what feels right, then do it! Good job, by the way.

  3. Hot flatmate ;)
    Although I kinda like men in glasses I must admit xx

  4. What a hottie! You can't tell us that you two are just flatmates is there something more we need to know? :)

  5. Dang, how does AJ feel about fat American girls? :D Don't feel bad talking about yourself, that's what this blogging stuff is all about! :)

    (Of course, I might be a bit biased ... between all my blogs I've written, um, 947 posts about me/my opinions on things. :) )

  6. OOOh he's cute!!! Look at this as a positive - your quest to lose weight sounds and looks like it's rubbed off on him... :) You did something awesome here - and he caught the bug.

  7. He looks great! I love the first pic, ruining photos is the best. A friend of mine has made it his life long mission.

  8. Oh no.... you can't be embarrassed. I mean, the thing is that it is about you.

    Besides, you inspire people by talking about the things that happen to you and the things that matter to you.

    Thank you!! Check out my blog at:


  9. Wow...he looks amazing...very different too

  10. I think he looks really cute before too!
    Trust you to ruin the photo!

  11. I still don't know how you concentrate on anything at home with AJ the hottie there *le sigh* ;)

    I LOVE the first pic of you in the background. It makes me crack up laughing every time I see it!


Awww thanks so much for the comment!
