World's Worst Dieter

Day One of the diet

From the pictures you can probably tell that day one wasn't that much of a skinny day but it's nearly my sister's birthday and she wanted to go out for lunch. I ate a delicious sandwich called the "Double Pig" and yes I did really feel like a pig once I ate it! It had pulled pork and bacon and BBQ sauce and homemade coleslaw, what more could you want in life?!? Oh I can tell you, a massive slice of carrot cake

So I thought I would tell you the 5 reasons I am an awful dieter...

1) I actually love food
Who cannot love food? I mean look at the pictures above, who could turn their nose up at the crazy amount of carbs on offer?

2) I used to think I was fat when I wasn't
I have pictures of myself from when I was younger when I thought I was enormous that I look back at now and realise I was never fat. Yeah I was bigger than my friends but everyone has different body shapes, you just don't realise that when you are 15. So when I put on weight I thought it didn't matter because I was already fat, what was a few more pounds? And now I look back and think I would give my left leg to weigh that much again (and I probably would have to!!)

3) I need pudding
If I go out for a meal, I need pudding!! I went out last night for dinner and even though I was super full from the Cajun chicken burger with mint & cucumber and chips, we ordered lemon posset and pear tart to share and it was great.

4) I lose weight, convince myself that I am happy, that I don't care and then put it back on
I am my own worst enemy, I lose weight and then put it back on once I have convinced myself that I am happy with my body. But I'm not happy and I have that self bravado and a lot of laughs at my own expense to convince myself and every one around me that I am happy

5) I am a lazy bum
I much rather sit here and read your blogs about food and makeup and your fantastic lives than get up off my massive arse and do some exercise! See I knew I could blame someone else.

But hopefully this time I will stick to this!!

  1. Haha, you remind me of me. I'm like this! I'm starting to get used to it now though, it does make you feel good when you know you're being healthier - you don't have to join a gym either, I recommend walking for half an hour every day, or riding a bike, its easier and effective! Good luck x
