Cho yung anyone?

I can understand why I'm not losing weight - it's not exactly a strict diet I'm on - but I am baffled as to why I'm putting on weight!

I think I must be one of those rare people whose metabolism makes them gain weight when they try to diet. Or I have an even rarer hormonal disease that makes me hippy.

It can't possibly be the fact that I'm eating too much.

Anyway I decided today would definitely be the day I started taking my diet seriously: my shorts are painfully tight. So it was unfortunate that I had to go to the deli in Mumbles to get some parmesan for risotto and they had some scrummy-looking olive bread and yummy cheese.

Never mind, thinks I, I'll start tomorrow.

What bit of my brain, do you think, didn't absorb the fact that I was buying olive bread and that it would have olives in it? (I don't like olives.) And my cheese wasn't as nice as usual so I could carry on with my diet after all.

Has anyone else checked out these 'I lost 3.5 stone in 3 months using this 1 amazing secret' adverts? (And are you willing to admit it?!) I so want to believe but I know in my heart it can't be true. I even checked out one of the reporters the advert claimed had been convinced by the evidence. It turned out she didn't exist.

If I drink lots of water will it fill me and stop being hungry? I'm going to be very miserable over the next few weeks.

hmmmm.... how much you do want to loose and why?? If dieting is making you miserable don't do it.

Celebrate your curves!!

I don't know if it's because it fills you up, but drinking water is good for losing weight.

And dieting. Well. Did you notice that diet is a four letter word? Little changes that you can live with for a long time and more exercise. And lots of water.

I do celebrate my curves mostly, amanda, it's just that they're getting lost in the flab!

I'm trying on the water, katney.

Me too, cherrypie, so why is it so hard to be motivated?

Anyway I'm off out for curry tonight!

Any mention of dieting and self control goes out of the window !!
But please don't become like one of our old work experience helpers . She drank a half litre every half hour on the dot ..... and peed as regularly . I reckoned she had the most boring teenage life ever !!
