Back in London

Wednesday, February 09, 2011

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 :)

    Welcome back Screwie! I missed you! Mr Gent probably did too. The weight will be gone as soon as you're doing your regular thing again. You must now unpack, rest a bit.

    So glad to have you back. How was your mum
    when you left?I hope you get over your cold soon.

    I am off to Greece for 3 months in June and
    I know I am going to have to try hard not to
    put on weight. I will make an effort to walk to and
    from the beach every day and go swimming. It is a
    kilometre each way, so I must do that.
    Never mind about the gain as knowing you, you will
    take it off in no time.
    I hope you get over your cold soon.

    Glad to hear you made it safely back to London. You bet the walking helped a lot with not going overboard putting more weight than you did. If I ever have the pleasure of visiting Italy, I would be trying all their wonderful food too, and walking to guard a big weith gain. Now you take care of yourself and get better real soon.

    Vacations are great for gaining weight. I'm sure you'll lose the weight quickly and healthily...especially with all the walking you like to do. emoticon Was your mum feeling a little better when you left for home? Take care of yourself...lots of chicken noodle soup and cuddles with Mr. Gent. emoticon Talk to you soon!! emoticon

    It is that scrumptious Italian food. It'll do that to you every time. Iremember the two weeks we spent in Venice when I was twelve. I ate all the time! Mind you, I was a skinny widget back then, so it didn't really matter! :-)

    Anyway, welcome back, and I hope the cold goes away really quickly!
