Back in London

With a cold (I woke up with it this morning), and almost 10 kg more than when I left.
I should be upset but I'm not. I think it might be for two reasons: one is that I personally think I look better right now - due to my tummy not having enough wrinkles to put Mother Teresa to shame.
The other reason is that, despite thinking I look better now, I felt much better without the 10 kg and it kind of reinforces my belief that I should be around the weight I was when I left, or even a couple of kg lighter, despite a lot of people telling me I was too thin then. Right now I feel like a beached whale; not surprising, considering how much I've eaten since I got to Italy almost two months ago. If I hadn't walked as much as I did, I would probably now be looking at 20 kg more! Without these 10 kg, I hated the way my tummy looked but I felt much, much better, so now I know how much I should weigh to feel good. I'm not looking forward to the wrinkly tummy again, but if it's a toss up between that and feeling really uncomfortable, I know which one I'll go for :)
