It took me 20 months to lose my 63kg, and since then I have been maintaining for - 20 months! You don't need to be able to see any detail on the graph, but just the big picture...
All of this might seem like a major pain, and that I seem to have forgotten that 'life is for living'. But not a bit of it. I have changed what I eat and drink completely, as I wrote about in last month's blog Treats, and how I handled them. In fact we have just returned from three days away, having eaten out in a steakhouse, Jamie Oliver's Italian place and a curry house. Although we did enjoy them, on the way home we both agreed that we were looking forward to a pile of vegetables, much less fat, and unlimited no-alcohol beer. Maybe this will not 'stick' forever, but the signs are good so far.
Finally, a recent thread on the forum was about fitting into tights, and unfortunately I mentioned that I used to be in pantomime, and going into Evans Outsize to look for tights to fit me (6'1", 23 stones) was quite an experience. Nothing I've written in my 68 blogs has created such interest, especially when I said that I thought that I could find a photo of when I was Posh Spice in a dance routine we did in 1996. The photo had me in my leopard-skin dress, before I dramatically tore it off to start the song - sorry you missed the tight miniskirt girls! Incidentally I was always in sulky Posh Spice character, as you see.
