Pot and kettle, sing it together: "Ebony and...ebony, live together in perfect harmony..."

So since my last blog I have realised (much helped by the comments that all pointed in the same direction...) that my memory is indeed short lived, for a few years, maybe months ago I did not have the best diet in the world...man, if I did , I would not be here today with still another 30+ kilos to shift! I must have other friends who wished every day I would take their advice as I would have started to feel better instantly just from seeing there was a possible better way...
But I need to emphasise I am only saddened because all my friends are bright and clever and oh-so-competent in all the other aspects of their lives and I did not go on-and-on about my new lifestyle. Nope, not in the slightest...in fact in one case I did not pipe a thing for a good 2 days, it only came out by accident, as I felt 'bad' advertising my wish to look after myself because my friend does not. I mentioned it, then when faced with total lack of interest or disbelief (how much does it cost though?? free...really???) I let go. Funny thing is, I could see the smugness in BF's eyes, because I can now face the real world and survive, and that finally made him proud.
And I guess it is really that that did make me sad and angry: that people I care about could look after themselves and yet chose not to.
But as you guys said: maybe they are just not ready yet, and when they are, I will be right there to support them.
In the meantime, I will still quietly disapprove of expensive cons that pass for miracle cures, and I will focus on me as afterall, I should truly be the only person I moralise about food, exercise, nutrients....as self as it sounds, I am putting myself first and reserving my energy to encourage my fellow Sparkers who have commited to change. The rest...enjoy the chocolate, donuts, cocktails and milkshakes!
Have a magnificient Monday ya all...I am off to study the pedometer function of my HRM!!
