I've slowly put on weight over the years, and it was getting me down a fair bit. Seeing photos of myself from Christmas I was quite shocked. My face shape was becoming less Burt and more Ernie.
So anyway, I've started this diet thing, and have been trying to make a few changes. Have you heard of The Fast Diet, or the 5:2 Diet? That's what I'm doing. E's doing it too. In a nutshell, you eat normally 5 days a week, but on the other two days you fast. You can eat 500 calories on those days, which is about a quarter of what you'd usually have. Those days suck a bit, (especially after a meagre dinner when I want to knock back a couple of rows of chocolate but have to settle on a small handful of sultanas. Grumpiness ensues..) but it's great knowing tomorrow you can eat whatever you want again.
This is my fourth week on it, and it's going pretty well. I've lost a couple of kilo's, and am just generally feeling better. I've been jogging a bit too, and doing some push ups and sit ups to help things along.
