…has always been “large and in charge”. Frankly, I’m used to it. It’s handy to have one’s own personal cushion always to hand, though I’m not so keen on the fact that when I run (which is rare, it has to be said), my backside is always a few feet behind, desperately trying to keep up.

I like my food. Life’s too short to count a calorie and while I like the way exercise makes me feel, the time it takes is a pain. However, even I have a tipping point and the scales this morning flagged it up. Ho hum – time to do something about it. But what?

maybe I should try portion control?*

Don’t suggest a slimming club – I know a woman who attended her first Weight Watcher’s meeting at 14 and is still diligently attending every week in her forties.

    It is a struggle.

  2. Good luck with your goals! 🙂

    • THanks for stopping by “Betty”. The photos on your blog make my mouth water! All the best to you.

  3. That’s toast, egg, bacon and tomato, OF. I’m having cooked breakfast today – 2 rashers of bacon, 1 slice of toast, (no butter) 1 egg, scrambled and some beans. Hopefully it’ll keep me going to ’til lunchtime as I’m off to London for the day. Then it’ll be a roast for Sunday lunch.

    1800 calories to maintain? oh, crap!

  4. […] calories (discussed in a previous post), we allegedly need less sleep as we get older. Really though? I know I get less, but as for […]
