Must get a grip! Just saw the video of me!

Monday, July 23, 2018

Just watched a short video of myself from two days ago and I'm shocked. I look like a barrel on legs! Decided to make up my own weight loss diet again as trying to stick to someone else"s just doesn't work for me for long.
Didn't weight myself this morning as I don't want to depress myself further. I'll hopefully feel stronger in a day or two to actually face quite how bad the weight damage is.
I intend making adjustments to my normal daily diet to lower the calories I eat. Not eating 6 Cornetto ice-cream cones like I did yesterday evening comes top of the list! Well it was blooming hot!
Today I started by switching to fruit teas instead of tea or coffee with milk. I reckon that will save up to 200 calories a day for starters.
DH & I are retired and eat lunch out every day, so forward planning needs to be done for all the places we eat lunch in. Today was our favourite Rose Garden cafe and the best choice available was a prawn sandwich on rye bread so I only ate the bottom half of bread but all the filling.
I'm not telling anyone about my weight loss attempt. I just feel like doing it secretly at the moment and I doubt if anyone will notice anyway as I'm not going to be changing my normal eating pattern enough to be obvious anyway.

    Don't tell anyone but us! People always have their opinions, and most of them are not helpful. People talk about dieting too much! It ruins the meal, in my opinion.

    Now that I've said that, I will still offer an idea: you never have to eat all of what you're served. In fact, it's usually a mistake because portions are so large and the offerings are often heavy. Of course, the denser and richer the food is, the less you can eat and still feel comfortable in an hour or two.

    People in slim cultures usually actually eat only one really substantial meal a day, and it is often lunch. The others are quite small in comparison. You can think of yourself as being on the European program!

    I predict this is going to be a great year for you.
