Mike 24's Diary

Hello there :p

So, I've decided that I'll keep this diary to help keep track of how I do and hope that it will help and inspire me and maybe others!

Well, a little about me....

Well, my name is Mike and I'm 24 (did you guess that already?) :D .

I live in North London, and currently single (alas) after splitting up with my last partner just before Christmas (and I forgot to get my present off him first!).

I have two jobs. by day I work as a Insurance Fraud investigator for a large insurer. By night however I work as a Drag Artist, touring the country with my show, mainly working on the Ladies Night circuit (you might have even seen me :D).

Being big isn't something new for me. I've always been on the chubby or large side. However, over the past few years with the excesses of University and my general laziness I have managed to get to over 20 Stone. I'm only 5ft7 as well. I'm currently supporting a 52" chest and a 48" waist. That, ladies and gentlemen, is the first time I've admitted that to anyone!

I'm determined that this isn't going to be the case any more. :p...you have no idea how much it is to have full sequin costumes made in my size! :D

I first considered the Lighter Life diet in the summer but I found it easier at that time to make excuses like "oh thats far too expensive" and "i'll start swimming and going to the gym". After 3 weeks of going to the gym (and I must say I did loose weight), I gave up because I always felt out of place.

Then, in December, I decided that I wasn't going to allow myself to get any bigger! In fact my brain seemed to finally realise that Lighter Life was a good plan.

So, here is where it starts. I have taken the first step. In December I made my appointment with the local LLC, who luckily enough for me is Debbie Masters (who seems to have won quite a few awards for her work with Lighter Life). My appointment with her is Thursday, swiftly followed by a dash to my GP for my appointment with him. All things well, I will then attend my first group on Sunday.

So, cross your fingers for me, and I will update this tomorrow after my GP appointment.

Oh, and I thought I'd attach a couple of pics now to show you what I look like now. one of me and one of me at one of my recent shows.

Wow! You look gorgeous ;)

So, come on. Which job do you prefer? Would reckon the night job much more entertaining!

the job!

Well, of course I prefer the evening job :D .

I love entertaining, and its something I've always been good at! The day job gives me the regular income while the evening job adds extra to my pocket :p. Hopefully next year I will give up the day job :)

Hi Mike - great to meet you!

Love your alter ego and that catchy name! :) I was never one for glamour myself - but greatly admire those who can pull it off (which you can)

I agree you're going to have to think of a new slogan - it won't be long before people will be scratching their heads wondering what the hell your old one means!!

And as for your pics KINKYSEX .... wow - boobs or what?? I'm dead jealous: since I lost weight, mine look like a pair of mittens!!

Good and Bad News

I'll start with the good news. The meeting with the Lighter Life Councilor went fine. :p She answered all my questions, including the one about "will I be peeing like a racehorse :D".

I then went to the doctor....

And that was basically fine too :D.

The only problem is my blood pressure which is high for someone my age, but as he said, that should come down with weight loss. I'll be seeing my Doctor every month anyway so we'll keep an eye on that :).

So, I'm overjoyed! I have my first Lighter Life session on Sunday at 10am!!!!!


:p :p :p
