My mouth drools at the sight and smell of chocolate and cake. Starting a diet that excludes my favourite foods or radically curtails their consumption is going to be a nightmare. I can see tantrums on the horizon especially if someone tells me to eat a pickled onion instead! How can a pickled onion give me that same warm, sensational hug that I desire? Give me a break!
My advice for those who can’t stop eating chocolate -share then you only eat half as much!
To be or not to be weighed
As some of you know, I am now attending Slimming World. Today that all important weigh in after a two-week gap due to celebrating my Silver Wedding Anniversary. Did I lose anything apart from my shoes? You will have to scroll down to the bottom of the post to find out. If you scoot to the end, you will miss an entertaining post – even if I do say so myself!
Lettuce doff our caps and bow our heads for a minutes silence.
It is with great sadness that we are in court today to decide on the matter of Lettuce’s demise. You as the jury must deliberate the evidence and unanimously state if Margaret is guilty or innocent.
What have you to say, Margaret?
I wish to plead not guilty your honour.
Very well state your defence.
It all began last week when I decided to change my life style. I first met Lettuce at the supermarket. We instantly connected. I invited her home, and we became friends – she was always accompanying me at meals.
Overweight wobbling along I went to my Slimming World weigh in. Did I appear overeager arriving fifteen minutes early – probably but I wanted to see the results of my lettuce week? Would I be able to see my size three feet that disappeared years ago? Such excitement which subsequently needs an answer to. I can’t wait, hang on I know – but you don’t! On with the show then.
