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!.
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 (except the obdurate and dictatorial) is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 46 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), plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away; we also have a Border Collie called Billy. 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!
