Weight, wheat & whatever!!

Ha ha ha!! How true were my first words?!?! Not only have a rarely updated I even forgot I had a blog page!!!
Guess it's time to revive the page & get it out there into the world!
So here's my latest missive:

Amazing!!! I seem to recall the embarrassing moment last January when I was finding myself having to put another hole in the shameful end of my belt.
This of course I dismissed with thoughts of typical Christmas excesses (yes I know of course you never do!!) coupled with my inability to exercise due to the hernia pains etc. However in the dark recesses of my mind the feeling I should be actively doing something to reduce my (modest) paunch! So in a fit of decisive action I ruled that no more cakes or biscuits should pass my lips (of course I didn’t say it out loud!!). I know all you sceptics out there will doubt me but I can in all honesty tell you I can count on one hand the number of occasions this year when I have had a cake or biscuit & then as if my hand was a mitten!!
That in itself I felt was just not doing the job so following Naomi’s discovery of some info about wheat causing excess weight/bulk retention as something akin to an allergy we both decided to become nominally wheat free (by nominally I mean we would reduce our intake to just below the point of obsession!!) and I can certainly say that it has made a difference. Not only do we feel better & a tad lighter for it but folk seem to be noticing too, which is a great comfort & encouragement to us both.
So here we are heading towards another Christmas, with perhaps less in the way of excess (but we’re not too sure on that score considering Naomi’s brother is also getting married 2 days later!!) and here I find myself constantly hitching up my pants & needing to take my belt in another notch but discovering there are none left so another hole goes in!!

Slow and steady it may have been but they do say that’s the best way, works for me at any rate!!!
Well let's hope I remember I have a blog page before too much longer!!
