tip of the icebergSo yay! This morning I was officially down 4 kilos since I started (yet another) get healthy and thinner plan, this latest one the day after my birthday. I got an unexpected “boost” of a 2.5 kilo loss when I was sick as a dog for several days, and so far that weight is staying off. Anyhow, I seem to be onto something. I don’t really want to talk about my “technique” since it’s actually very simple and sensible and somehow I don’t want to jinx what seems to be working by talking about it. I know that probably doesn’t make sense, but it does to me.

What I can say is that it has nothing to do with that idiotic new 5:2 fad diet going around in which you starve yourself 2 days a week on 500 calories and then “eat whatever you want” for the other 5 days. I mean, doesn’t that sound like a perfect breeding ground for new and unusual eating disorders?

Meanwhile, I do know that this is the tip of the iceberg since I still have 20 more kilos to go, and I also know I’ve been here before. But this time I feel very optimistic that this is my time for change. As long as I get a clean PET scan in March I reckon this is going to be My Year. 🙂
