|It looks a lot, but it’s mainly cabbage!|
In 2006, I lost 2 and a half stone and for the first time in many, many years I was a size 12! I wore shorts, and looked really normal. I stayed that weight for about about two years and then slowly, pound by pound put it all back on along with another stone just to keep it all happy! I lost the weight by following the weight watchers points plan. I started on 21 points and as I lost the weight got down to 17 points and yes! I was ****ing starving all of the time!
By the fact that I’m sat here and not dodging the flying sweaty HRT patches at a local church hall at the Rosemary Conley’s fat fighters club; you can tell I decided not to shell out £5.80 a week and I will blog my weight loss instead. Why not? I blog everything else! Today I am 13 stone and 9 pounds. In a week after misery, self deprivation and all round penitence, I will weigh myself again. I should lose 1lb a week. The old style weight watchers programme is very very cheap! It’s basically piles and piles of vegetables with no points and a tiny bit of meat or fat. There is a lot of weighing and measuring but after a while and when I start to lose weight, then it will all seem worth it.

I know there are all kinds of new fat fighting clubs and the new fat fighters pro-points system. It’s like the old system but more money and they’ve changed all the points so some people will pay for all new books, scales, points calculators and all those ‘low fat, low calorie’ biscuits and chocolates in the foyer! You know the ones, half the fat, so you can eat twice as much. I’m not decrying the places and good luck to anyone who uses them, but this time, if I lose 2 and a half stone and then put it all back on again, at least I will not have paid about £750 for someone to weigh me, half look at me and whilst scribblings weights in a leaflet chirp ‘Good week?’ I’m now off for a walk in the rain!
