New me

Two weeks since I began back on the first of Jan, my aim, better diet, lose weight, one more birthday passed hopefully not my last so I'm changing before it is too late. My input of dairy was really quite scary, demolishing cheese by the wedge, my waist getting wider from real ales and cider, so time to cut back, eat more veg. Eating more carbohydrates cutting back on the phosphates, ramp up vitamins B6 and B12, If they've got Niacin and Thiamin you can bet that I'll buy 'em in, supplements slowly filling the shelves. Pantry looks like a garden as my resolve hardens, more greens than I've eaten before, Spinach, Broccoli, Legumes are now taking up room from the top shelf right down to the floor. I'm into week three for a healthy new me, there's a few more tweaks I haven't done, But I think, honestly I prefer the old me- this one isn't having much fun.

hey mr viv congrats on reaching week 3 BUT a little bit of what you fancy does the trick so have a treat now and again... when dad was terminally ill with cancer he wanted some salt and vinegar crisps - i got them ... mum complained they were bad for him, I said I don't think we will worry about that! hugs Jan xx
