Remember my Diet Aids …. Remember December ? Well here I am just over a week away from December so I thought it was time to check in.
I have lost 16 lbs (about 7.3 kg) since I posted those signs all around the kitchen. With one week to go I might squeeze out another couple. That result is not too bad – it's the equivalent of 1.5 dress sizes. I did not increase my exercise; actually I don't do any exercise other than the walking required to get places and our weekend strolls which are usually 3-5 miles each Saturday and Sunday.
I just stopped eating all the nice things in the cupboard and freezer and as silly as it might sound those signs really made me stop and think about whether I really wanted to eat something. It didn't always work because the impulse part of my brain would over-ride everything and say "of course you want that lovely cream puff or ice-cream, or that entire packet of Tim Tams!" .
I continued to have a glass of wine when I got home from work; sometimes two if I'd had to be particularly nice to people at work that day. On the weekends I was easier on myself when it came to eating the "good" stuff and I definitely had more than a couple of wines!
Now I have to come up with more rhymes to get me through 2010! But, until then, what's for dinner tonight? PIZZA!
On Sunday I watched this shapely lady wobble along on stiletto heels – unfortunately they do not show up well in the photo, nor does the wobble.
They are walking towards a bus shelter which has an advertisement which I love even though I'm not sure what it is advertising:
