The trouble with dieting, as most people know, is that it's not easy to lose the weight, but oh so bloody easy to put it back on again.
I have been following the 5:2 fast diet for a while and had lost about a stone in weight (14 lbs, 6.35 kgs). But a few days of winter excess, plus a couple of restaurant visits, and half of it has gone back on again. Maybe I was feeling over smug with myself.
More determination and will-power is required as we build-up to Christmas, otherwise I can see myself having to make some stupid new year's resolution; and that wouldn't do!.
We went with friends to the Scallop festival in Whitianga; a charming
seaside town in the Coromandal District.
Had a great time...5000 people, lots of wine...

The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 45 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), a Border Collie/Black Lab' cross called Bok, a cat called Freddie, plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
