So as this blog is meant to be about diets and I haven't been on one for a while then let's get back to the nitty gritty of it shall we?
My name is Liz. I am a yo yo dieter. I like food . I also like wine. I like cooking. I like eating. I like reading. I like writing. I like watching rubbish telly. I really dislike my job.
I lost 4 stone in 2011 so I could go and see Take That with my oldest friend and I didn't want to wobble when I danced. I felt fab!
I spent most of 2012 trying to recapture the giddy heights of being an iconic loser but failed and then gave it all up last October. I tried fasting (LOL) I tried 'doing it at home'. I even bought some Slimfast. Our fabulous group's consultant then gave up Slimming World too so as it was December by then I thought ''oh what the hell, pass me some more cheese''.
On January 1st I woke up and thought I could feel a few extra rolls so on January 3rd I started a new group in the next town. It's a bit like trying a new chippy. You know you like chips but they're never quite the same if you go elsewhere. Not necessarily bad, just different.
I HAD PUT ON A STONE AND A HALF IN 3 MONTHS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So for all of you people out there that think it's easy to lose weight, let me tell you - yes it is fairly easy, it's the keeping it off that's the problem and that's where I went wrong.
Luckily my oldest friend Nicola has come to the rescue again and this year we are off to see The Pet Shop Boys in June. That has given me some sort of goal and it means that I have started eating strange things like fruit and vegetables and drinking lots of water.
I have even made my famous swiss roll today so I must mean business.
I know fat people are a source of amusement for many but it's seriously not funny.
We all know at least one person that can eat and drink whatever they want and remain slim , well I will never be one of those people so I must try and get to grips with behaving myself and just having the odd treat once in a while. All my slimmish clothes are too tight and I gave all my fat clothes away , I have at least one extra chin and I don't' even want to think about my bottom.
So there - I have said it.
And next time I feel tempted to stray I just have to remind myself of The Pet Shop Boys and Slimming World and when I see a naughty looking pasty or a cheeky piece of cake, I must think
''It's a syn''!
