I've been and gone on my two month cycling trip and lost about 8kg without even trying. In fact i ate lots of patisserie and otherwise just ate what i wanted. I didn't over eat or undereat but i did a lot of exercise. Now i'm home and want to keep up the fitness and lose some more weight. I'm still officially overweight. So i'm going to continue this diary.
In France i was so blown away by all the really yummy things there that i am going to continue with them in my life until i get sick of it. I"m going to make patisserie. The idea is to make one delicious thing per week for myself. I will have only one serve of it, and share the rest with family and friends so that i can't binge on it.
Another thing i discovered whilst away was that if i eat the sweet course first, i will have forgotten all about it by the end of the meal. If i leave it to the end, i find i usually want to get up and immediately eat another serve of dessert but this way i've found my sweet tooth and appetite have been satisfied.
I know i can do this successfully until a new wave of depression starts to set in then what will be will be.
I probably won't be keeping a daily food diary though.
But here is todays and if tomorrow's is not in, nothing need be made of that. I have a lot of other stuff to do at the moment.
