I have been feeling a little heavy recently, too much comfort eating, possibly comfort drinking, too.
So I was at my mum's last Sunday and I mentioned this to her.
"There's some scales in the bathroom, underneath the thing. You're better off bringing them downstairs and putting them on a hard surface. The kitchen's best."
So I went to the bathroom and got the scales from under the thing, took them into the kitchen and stepped on them. Thirteen stone!
"I'm a couple of stone overweight, too," said my mum.
So I've cut out a lot of wheat. Two slices of bread a day in my lunchtime sandwich. Then I started on the Ryvita. Ryvita, Ryvita, Ryvita. I mentioned my new health kick on Twitter. Beverley replied to me. Bev's alright...
@RyvitaCrunch Beverley at Ryvita @geoffwetblanket have you had a look at our website? Might help inspire you x www.ryvita.co.uk :-)
I suppose if I were a musician or an artist, inspiration would be easy to find. But being a dieter, looking at pictures of cardboard with white stuff on them doesn't get my creative juices flowing.
A week into my diet and I'm off the Ryvita and into Oatibix. The view from the top of Hampton Hill is superb.
