With only seven weeks or so to go until my trip to New York it’s time to start making some preparations – passport info has been submitted to the airline, excursions have been booked and, today, the diet has started.
Over the last few months I had finally become comfortable with my figure, I had stopped worrying about what size clothes I was wearing, about how I looked…unfortunately I had become too comfortable with it…to the point that all my clothes had become extremely uncomfortable.
So here I go again…it’s diet time.
As usual at the end of day one I am asking myself why I ever deviate from eating healthy food…I like healthy food, it tastes good and I enjoy the challenge of finding new and interesting variations on healthy.
I’ll lose weight, I’ll buy new clothes, I’ll feel more comfortable again…and happier.
Hopefully I’ll manage to stick to this new regime (which involves calorie counting and keeping a food log) throughout the summer and by the time I go to Italy in September I’ll be happy to pack some dresses in my case.
Then I’ll go back to university, life will get manic and stress filled once more and gradually my eating habits will get steadily worse until chocolate, crisps and cake have once again replaced fruit, vegetables and lentil curry.
Then I’ll start again.
I’ve often compared the world to a circus, with everyday life one big juggling act, well within that circus my weight issues are the stunt yo-yo act – will it ever change?
