Today I ate 6 chocolate chip cookies on the trot. I wore a t-shirt clearly too small for me. I glared at myself in the mirror…Then ate another cookie.
Since christmas I’ve been kidding myself about my eating lifestyle. But the reality is that when my back has hurt too much to walk around the kitchen, I’d grab something convenient. ‘Convenient’ is nearly always junk food. It doesn’t have to be but it nearly always is. The husband, bless his soul, will jump right in and make dinner for us but it’ll be processed food we have lurking in the bottom of our freezer.
I’ve been a yo-yo diet victim for over five years since cutie-pie #1 came along and stretched my tummy to high heaven. The husband says I look the same as when we first met. God bless him for lying to me.
So when I stumble upon this article I wanted to kiss the computer screen. It not only gives me an excuse not to ‘diet’ but promises that I can lose weight anyway. Granted, it does skim over the importance of motivation and I think its a way bigger factor than that. I reckon unless you’re following a step-by-step approach to eating, you need mahoosive amounts of motivation and self-discipline to maintain a healthy lifystyle. Nevertheless, these words are logical, refreshing and inspiring.

Not having chocolate biscuits and crisps in the cupboard is a good idea too.
