Getting a reality check
or actually a kick up the butt; which applies to me!
I have known Man Wonderful since 1998 when we were work colleagues before we started a relationship in summer 2000.
Since 2000 I have been on a diet of some kind.
If I had only kept off all the lost weight rather than put it on again over those years, I actually wouldn't be here!
I am a diet expert - no I'm not, I'm a diet failure!
Regular readers will know I've written about and analysed different weight-loss plans before. . .
Then given in to temptations.
I do say that there are no banned foods, it is different portion sizes that matter; but for me, if there is a 'naughty' food in the house, I want to eat it.
It is better for me to avoid certain foods:
- puddings in general
- fried foods like batter and chips
- weighing myself every day, first thing in the morning
- Setting a healthy daily calorie amount, and recording what I eat honestly.
- Writing in my diary the time I have set aside for exercise.
