Five weeks to getting out and about again and wearing clothes with unforgiving waistbands.
Can I do it, can I lose 8lbs in five weeks? Yes I can, but will I? I'm so used to wearing comfort clothes that don't remind me of my expanding waistline, so used to covering up with a coat for going to the supermarket, and so used to saying "Blow it, I'm not going anywhere and nobody is going to see me" as I tuck into chocolate, another pizza, Indian or MacDonalds, or reach for another biscuit or piece of cake. It's going to be difficult to break the habit of just eating without thinking.
The first thing I need to do is not buy these things. I started on Tuesday when I went shopping.
As a chocoholic I automatically picked up 9 to stock pile. Then I had a word with myself saying "No put them back". I did, and at the same time decided not to eat chocolate until Easter. Now all I have to do is stop eating all the other rubbish.
I'm going to need a lot of willpower.
