another slice please

I stopped eating cooked food when my pal Del died; it wasn't really a concious decision, I just couldn't be bothered cooking. So I just ate fruit. That was 5 weeks ago. I lost 2 stone, a couple of chins and a considerable number of inches off my waistline with no apparent bad effects. No hunger pangs, no cravings. Then yesterday while out riding I stopped in a cafe and had a coffee and a slice of chocolate cake. Since then I haven't stopped eating - cakes, crisps, sandwiches, a couple of chocolate bars and now I'm sitting down to a light snack of a 12" pizza and a plate of potatoes finished off with a chocolate brownie. Guess I was hungry after all!

By the way, it's the 10th May, and it's been snowing all day today. How did we get conned into believing that global warming crap? More like a new ice-age beginning.


  1. I'm glad you're eating again, but I do hope normalcy prevails...and you are able to keep your reduced waist line...and the loss of the chin or two...I would like to have that happen to me....
    Agreed with the Global Warming's cold here again...

  2. El Diente:

    that sounds like a good way to lose weight, esp the two chins. Now to control your hunger pangs or soon you'll be twice what you were

    You can keep the snow. Winter missed us this year, we had to truck in the snow for the Olympic Winter Games. It's nearly summer here

  3. Yes, it's nice to look similar to my passport photo again!

    Chessie, next time you're touring around stop off in Ashville NC, its a cool little town especially if you catch their music festival.

    Bob, we've had more than our fair share of snow this year - here's hoping for a hot summer to make up for it

  4. Wednesday was the coldest May morning for 17 years, apparently. Just the kind of morning you want to be standing in a pit lane from 6.30am organising a track day....thank god they don't make me wear lycra.

    Glad that you are eating again, but please be kind to yourself, they say time is a healer but they lie, what they actually mean is as time passes you learn to live with how things are now rather than how they used to be.
