I don’t want to see your before and after… (BoPo blog)

Just a heads up that this blog is gonna contain fat-talk, real-talk, weight-loss talk….everything. So if you think any of this may be a trigger to you then proceed with caution. I’ll put it all under a cut ❤️

I hope you’re all having a great week and have a great weekend.

This blog is dedicated to anyone (male or female and anyone in-between or outside those binaries) who has to fight the urge to hate themselves whenever they see a friend or relative posting before & after pics and eluding to fat being ugly or less than… You’re all amazing and deserve to be happy at every size.

You’re a Miracle

This is just in case you need it… Whenever you need it…

If you ever think this;

No…. Because I’m meant to be here… Just like you are.

I know we all go through existential crisis on a regular basis. I know we want the planet to stop so we can get the fuck off because just WHAT THE FUCK IS HAPPENING?!

A Cheeto reject with a bad patch of camel hair on his head who couldn’t run a business without going bankrupt and ran away from serving in the forces for some ridiculous bullshit reason is president of the USA and thinks healthcare is only a privilege for the rich not a basic right for everyone. Is more worried about sorting people into which bathroom to use by what’s between their legs than stopping children who just want an education from being shot while reading their study books.

The UK is being run by morons who seem to think cutting everyone’s money while raising their own is the way to go (yeah, good one..) while systematically making sure getting the health care and emergency services we need is harder than ever before. Blames the disabled and decrepit for being lazy and not working harder… Or working at all but barely pulls a five hour day themselves and even that is behind a desk. Would happily spend £400 pp on breakfast or lunch but chastises those on a low income for treating themselves to a fucking Starbucks coffee….

And that’s just two countries on this blue marble floating in the infinite.

…. But I also know just how many of these reblogs (on original tumblr post) won’t be ironic, won’t be for laughs, won’t just be a “lol me” or “same”… They’ll be genuine; they’ll be people wishing they weren’t here and never existed because they believe life would be better without them.

I’M GLAD YOU EXIST.

You are here for a reason and it’s totally 100% okay to not know what that reason is. Just trust that the universe needs you to be here right now… The universe wanted you to be created and that’s why you’re here.

The universe believes in you! I promise!

I believe in you.

I know I’m just some random person on the internet and this all means jack shit to you; but I still believe in you and I always will.

You deserve to be believed in!

You’re amazing!! You’re not perfect and that’s fine because nobody is. You’re YOU and that’s enough… Nobody else could ever be you – how amazing is that?! Nobody can ever replace you either.

Nobody could ever take your place in the universe, on the planet, in this life, right now, ever…Because its shape fits only you. If you weren’t here and never existed there would be a weird blank spot. The universe would keep trying until it helped create you.

Life isn’t easy and it’s not fair and that fucking sucks!! But the fact that you’re here right now, on this planet in this universe at this time is a fucking miracle! Do you know the odds of a sperm and ovum making YOU? Fucking billions-to-one!

I don’t know if you believe in miracles…. So just go look in the mirror cuz there’s your amazing face…

Believe in miracles and you believe in yourself!!

Things will fall into place. Honest.

Why I don’t care… 💍

…about The Royals / Wedding.

It’s been a while since I posted and I’ll be honest, I’m an amazing procrastinator and I’ve also been enjoying time with my fiance and dealing with some personal stuff. I will blog about the personal stuff but not just yet.

So on to today’s topic… The Royal Wedding. It doesn’t matter where you go online it’s all that 90% of the media are talking about qnd in a few months there will probably be a baby announcement and we’ll get more of it… I had the terms “RoyalWedding”, “Royal”, “Markle” and “HarryAndMeghan” all black listed on Twitter… Apparently they didn’t care about that and shoved it down my throat at every chance.

Read on to find out why I just don’t give any f*cks anymore…

Why weight-loss praise makes me feel conflicted.

This is a subject that I haven’t come across myself, personally, aimed towards me. Ever. I’ve been through this second hand with friends who have lost weight, for whatever reasons, and it’s something I have spoken to them about; especially those within the BoPo community.

The mass consensus is that it leaves us feeling any/all of the following..

  • “Squicky”
  • “Squiffy”
  • Uncomfortable
  • Conflicted
  • Angry
  • At a loss
  • Generally confused

Life updates and stuff!

So, it’s that time of year again where I sit, or lay, and reflect upon the last year of my life. Thing I’ve done wrong and learned lessons from, things that went incredibly right through nothing but luck (😂) and things that I wish had never happened.

So what am I thinking of? What sticks out? Read on and find out.

Hotel Hell

It’s Sunday, October 1st and we’re much more relaxed than we were yesterday.

I booked us in originally for the Blair Victoria Hotel via amoma.com …. Which I was directed to from Hotels.com. Two nights for £116.47. We arrived after travelling all morning, couldn’t check in till 2pm so we put down our bags and then went to find food; we checked in at 2.30pm ish and crashed on the bed.

Woke an hour ish later and had a good look around…. And were pretty horrified.

This is the bottom of the door to the en suite. I actually slipped while trying to shower because there was no non-slip flooring and then the water pressure messed up meaning hot/cold and back again. So we gave up on that…

Also i dont want water from this to touch me…. Ever.

The above is the extractor fan in the bathroom.

So we complained and we were moved from floor 3, room 26 (6 sets of stairs btw!) To room 40 in the basement. It was bigger with a better bathroom. Upon closer inspection however….

Black Mould incoming. The beds were damp and we couldn’t have the window open or all we could smell was an overflow pipe.

We spent a good four hours trying to find another room, thankfully MIL is amazing and got us into a new hotel at very short notice.

The stupid thing is that the owners of the previous hotel KNOW about the problems they have because they’re “planning a refit next year”.

I’m now gonna have to fight to get a refund from the place i booked it through (who are saying i have to go through my travel agent…..).

Maybe Judge Rinder could help? 😂

OH ALMOST FORGOT!! The Blair Victoria is 2 stars…. The Collier’s Hotel, that we are now in (who are AMAZING) are a 1 star hotel and are SO MUCH BETTER. I swear this is what it feels like to be in The Ritz.

Problematic Fave & Their Fan-Base

I want to preface this blog post with some notes.

  • I won’t be naming names.  If you read this and know exactly who I’m referencing, I politely ask you don’t comment/tweet with their name.
  • I had receipts on my browser and now I have to re-find them because everything crashed and I had to restore the factory settings – as I find them again, I will add them.
  • When I refer to this person’s fandom; I mean it as a generalisation and not a “everyone in the fandom is like this!”  I have friends in the fandom and they’ve been great with explaining certain things and even greater and understanding the POV from others.
  • This YT-er’s fan base is quite young; MOSTLY early to mid teens.  This is important to remember.
  • I DO NOT, under ANY circumstances, believe that this YT-er is a paedophile. I AM NOT accusing them of that offence.

Read on after the jump for more.

An Apology to #MattLucas

Dear Mr. M. Lucas,

This is long overdue and has been playing on my mind a lot recently. I made similar posts on former blogs before now, hoping you'd see them… and now I hope you haven't because I distinctly remember trying to justify myself.

There is no justification for the disgraceful and heartless "joke" I reposted on Twitter many years ago about yourself and your late husband.

For the longest time I would shrug it off by saying I didn't ever think you would see it, didn't know it was the real you replying and some other ridiculous excuses to make myself feel better.
The truth is none of that matters or makes it better and I should never have posted it in the first place. I was cocky, idiotic and cold hearted…. please know, I am no longer that person. I now take issues such as depression, self harm and suicide very seriously and know they are never a joke and shouldn't ever be any form of entertainment. I should have known back then and obviously I didn't.

I made an insurmountable mistake and royally fucked up and I cannot begin to imagine the hurt seeing that tweet caused you. With everything within me, I apologise unreservedly.

I hope you do see this and please know, that this mistake has not & will not be repeated. Ever.

I'm not looking for forgiveness; only for you to know that I want to be as far away as possible from the person I was back then. I have grown and matured through experiences I wouldn't ever wish on anyone, and I am ashamed of myself for what I posted.

I am so very sorry.

Yours Sincerely
Miss K.P. Hall. (Twitter: @KatVonHall )

Note: I can't remember the Twitter name I was using back then. I do know I deleted the account when I started a new one.

Weight Loss & Body Positivity

I want to preface this with a content warning and place it all under a cut as it does deal with weight loss and as someone who still fights an eating disorder – I understand.  So PLEASE, if you feel this post will trigger you in ANY way, don’t read on.  I totally get it and understand.  
Recovery is always possible and attainable.
