I fell off the (diet) wagon big time over the weekend so today when I was invited out to lunch I thought "What the hell" and went. I had thick slices of lamb rump cooked perfectly with just a little pinkness, and roasted veg (carrot, sweet potato and parsnips) accompanied by the most gorgeous creamed potatoes, followed by fresh fig tart and cream, And, what's more, I had a glass of wine with it - so there! I probably won't need to eat again today.

Back on the Slimming World plan tomorrow. Class and weigh in on Wednesday.

Every so often you need to treat yourself. You main dish was a balanced nutritional meal.

Well today was Doctor day!

A1C held steady at 6.3 and his evil scale registered a 10 pound loss, I was sure it would be more like 20!

The slow pace gets discouraging, but I'm still a loser in his book!

Thanks, I think I am finally getting the hang of this eating business after almost 60 years of trying to figure it out!

It's an evolving process process as you age, different needs for different stages of your life. Unfortunately, my cravings still think I am 20 years old.

I personally don't like the word "diet." It suggests that once you lose the weight, you can go back to your old eating habits. I prefer "new eating habits" that will last a lot longer than diet efforts. Change how you eat, and you will keep the weight off. Diet and the weight will come back on after you go back to your old eating habits. Simple. Add more exercise (a pound of fat is about the same as a pound of butter, a pound of muscle is about the size of a golf ball--you can lose fat and gain muscle and still weigh the same, but not wear the same size clothes--hence the reason why I don't weigh myself) and you will feel better and look better.

That's why I like Slimming World. There's nothing faddy about it and there's no-one telling you you'll go to hell if you have a gin and tonic or a slice of toast. It's about re-learning how to eat sensibly and healthily.

And it works - I've played hookey for the last two weeks but I went this evening and way-hay, I've lost 5 pounds! I want to do it slowly and I don't want to part with much more than a pound a week. I don't want to be left with a lot of loose skin after the fat has gone!

I don't exercise as such - I reckon shovelling and carting two wheelbarrows of wet straw and manure (sorry if you're in the middle of your lunch) to the muck heap twice a day and walking half a mile a day to and from the field with the horse means I'm let off the treadmill.
