How To Lose Weight

Do you feel less like your arse is attached to you and more like it’s following you? Have you reached an age where you look in the mirror and think ‘what the hell happened?’ Do you find yourself  holding in your stomach to try and avoid fat rolls and muffin tops? Have you gone from slinky and seductive to baggy and comfy? Have you got wobbly bits that you’d rather you didn’t have? If the answer to any of these questions is yes then you’re probably thinking that you could do with dropping a few pounds…..

Be honest. Is it just me?

I can’t help but wonder if the people that put out these ‘quick and easy’ weight loss plans actually think about the people they are supposedly trying to help; if something is so ‘quick and easy’ how does it make the people feel who don’t shrink down to a size 10 in a couple of months? Like failures I would imagine – how is that helping?

Try, Try…..Try Again and….

Either that or you have to completely change your shopping habits and try to persuade the proprietor of your local small shop that there will be a huge demand for quinoa and chia seeds if he would but stock them and what does he mean he’s never heard of Swiss chard???

Is This What You Want?

My Pilates instructor said “yes, that’s it perfect! Just stay like that while I find my phone and I’ll take a picture”. A couple of minutes in that position and your abs definitely know that they’ve been worked so I was cursing her by the time she took the shot :o)

Stairway to Hell

It might sound daft but one way I’ve found of dealing with it is to find a really fast paced track on my i-phone and run up simply because it gets them out of the way more quickly. I should have said that I run up the stairs as a way to boost my cardio fitness but that’s crap, I just don’t like the bloody things! 

No S**t Sherlock.

I wonder how many more ‘studies’ will need to be commissioned and how many more campaigns chefs will have to embark on before people realise the simple truth – if you feed your children fattening foods and don’t encourage them to exercise – they will get fat?

It’s A Miracle!

This is it! It’s finally happened, a miracle! Years of research and scientific discovery have, at last, found a way to lose weight that is absolutely guaranteed. It’s absolutely free, you don’t have to buy any special potions or powders and it will work – no doubt! Are you ready………..?

The Age of the Quick Fix

For this desperately unhappy woman, cutting out or closing off part of her stomach will not sever the emotional link that she has to food. Therefore, I can’t help but wonder if people who are morbidly obese would profit far more from the psychiatrist’s couch than a scalpel
