Low fat diet and the weight piles on.


Really hacked off.



For about 2 weeks I have been starving. Well starving myself of my natural comfort foods chocolate, cake, buttery toast, pasta, cheese – you know the stuff? The stuff that makes life worth living.

So in the quest for a smaller bod I have eaten my and your body weight in fruit, veg and stuff that you would go out of your way to avoid most of the time. Yes the green leaves that come in bags, the curly red leaves that seem determined to stick in my throat, the skimmed watery stuff that passes for milk but we know is just water with a slug of milk or magnesia in it. So this hell has been going on  in the misguided hope that the weight would fall off me and I would be a svelte individual ready for summer and all it throws at me. Huh!

rugby-men_1  No there is no reason for this photo I just needed cheering up. So anyway……as I was saying.

Feeling optimisitc and with my halo intact I weighed myself this Sunday morning. This Sunday. Just now. And?  I have put on 2lb. Doesn’t sound like a lot but if you consider ye old bag of sugar routine 2lb’s is a lot. Especially when I am a walking salad mountain.

So what to do. Keep right on til the end of the road?

Bugger it I am off to meet Dynamite for a major latte and and even major slab of gooey cake the second the place opens this morning at 10am.

After that she is being styled for a wedding and  is going to by a professional. I am allowed to go. I will report back as it’s the sort of the thing I would love to get done. God knows if they do a line in bell tents but if they do – I will be at the head of the queue.

I intend to take photos – she won’t let me show her head – I know what she’s like – I wouldn’t either but it’s all about the clothes. I will report back.

burkini Now any ideas where did Nigella got that swimsuit?

    This is hard to believe BUT Dyna was so excited in the shop we were there for hours. Literally hours. The end result I will be posting up with pics tomorrow – personal shopping in Zara a joy! So……sober. WE said farewell. Really. THough she may have broken her leg on the way home she was carrying so many bags and was wearing 5″ heels. Must away to call her and check now…

    so…how many half’s did you have with the Dinamite? 

  • Had to copy this comment from my Facebook page it made me laugh out loud.

    Jane Stewart Tell me about it! once you get past 25 your metabolism gets to be rubbish and wants you to have a muffin top, I have had an apendage in front of my waist for many years and it has a name Pat (Pendage) i have made friends with it/her over the years instead of being contstantly angry and fed up! 

  • Aye on Northsound, Clyde, Tay, Forth and Westsound this week. 2-6pm.
    I hope they don’t have any Grow For It on tape it was the worst tv show ever and I should know I presented it!

  • I couldn’t agree more Rosemary. The only people that benefit from these bleedin’ diet books are the people that write them. If only Gok Wan would come and live in my house he could give me a pep talk every day before I leave the house! I have just been in Zara for 2 hours with dyna who has had her entire wardrobe redone _ I will be posting the details over the next day or two. I’m next I tell you it was FAB!

    I’ve struggled with my weight all my adult life. I’ve been miserable trying all the diets ever written, and I’ve finally decided its not worth all the sacrifices. Red wine, chocs, Doritos, more red wine have all added to the ever increasing waist line!! Thank god for elasticated jeggings!

    Yeh Ok we’ve been rumbled. We are just killing time….til OPENING TIME! Why not? I might as well be fat and happy.



    off out with Dynamite at 10?  Well there is only 2.5 hours before the bar opens…. where I guarantee you’ll end up!
