I wasn't surprised as I haven't been Gettysburg as much exercise and I had mushrooms in garlic butter and the biggest bowl of the creamiest risotto in the world on Saturday when we went out for a meal. Plus other little extras.
In fact I think our slimming teacher might have been following me around this past week. Her talk this morning was about a day in the life of a struggling slimmer called Paula (who bore a striking resemblance to Minnie Mouse) who thought she was being very good and trying very hard. But she didn't count the bits of left-over grated cheese that she squeezed together into a little wedge and ate, or the tiny cubes of free samples in the supermarket, or the bit of left-over pizza crust that was only a mouthful.
Teacher pointed out that all the little extras if repeated daily would add up to 3,500 calories in a week - or 1 pound of fat.
Don't you hate it when people catch you out?
