shark I am a 44 year old woman living along the beach in a tiny house beaten by the winds off the Irish Sea. Having been overweight my entire adult life I have decided it is time to reclaim my life and get rid of the excess baggage.

I love travelling, photography, wildlife photography, books, sax, music, the beach, my friends, cooking (especially cupcakes),cycling, diving and loads of other stuff. I am currently studying for a PhD in Forensic anthropology looking specifically at juvenile human skeletal remains from the medieval era (800 year old bones).
This blog is my journey from obese and unhappy to whatever emotions are thrown at me as I develop and find my balance.
I live in Liverpool United Kingdom. I am a lifelong vegetarian and live alone after losing my adored dog to canine cancer.010

Asleep on the sofa. I love his paws sticking out under the blanket.

    I am a 43 year old female. I love Cadburys Creme Eggs, forensic science, reading, books, music, sax, travel, the beach. I have been overweight most of my adult life and now I am reclaiming my life. I live in Liverpool UK and have recently lost my dog Bill to canine cancer. He was 3 weeks away from his 10th birthday. I work with heroin & crack cocaine addicts and study part time for a PhD looking at medieval juvenile human skeletal remains.
