Dont' take the posticon too seriously but I'm having a jokey at this week. Why oh why oh why was I at a party last night which included a buffet with the most delicious and mouthwatering selection of goodies you have ever laid eyes on? I'm trying to lose weight!!!! Why have I been nowhere near food when I felt peckish and was supposed to eat?

It's almost a week since the Paul McKenna prog and I have specifically NOT weighed myself again because he said not to, and I have been chewing my food like I've never chewed in my life before. I'm taking twice as long to eat things as everybody else but I am certainly not eating anywhere near as much in one meal. I simply can't. I get to a stage when I've got loads left on the plate

Here, there, or where?

Well I have had a "Paul McKenna day" today but I'm still not sure if I can really tell when I'm hungry or when I'm full. Had a yearning for a Coronation chicken sandwich this morning so got myself one for lunch which was very nice but very mouthwateringish and hard to eat slowly. Put you food down between mouthfulls he'd said so I did and lumps promptly fell out! Maybe that's part of the plan so you end up eating less?

Sort of didn't have any tea because I was going out to Relief Society Enrichment night. That's female members of the church 18 and over who get together once a month to do stuff. Sometimes we get together more than once a month to do even more stuff. Tonight we were mending hymn books which sounds very

The First Day of the Rest of My Life

Well there's nothing like being optimistic is there?

Last night I watched Paul McKenna and have made note of his four basic rules. I don't think there's any breach of copyright in me repeating them here:

1. Eat when you're hungry.
2. Eat what you really want, not what you think you should have.
3. Enjoy each mouthful.
4. Stop when you think you're full

Like most people on the show, to me that sounded like a recipe for disaster but he promises it will work. I think my main problem is actually trying to identify when I'm hungry, to make the destinction between actually feeling a need for food and having a desire to taste something. In the past I've tried to be quite rigid with

Time Lapse

Posted 10-01-2006 at 00:16 by WillowTheWhisp

A couple of entries ago I said it was difficult keeping up with two journals and I've proved that by not even keeping up with the one! I'm forever intending to turn over new leaves but somehow never manage it.

Perhaps if I keep up the journal this year I'll be able to recap a bit over some of what I missed from last year too. Who knows, it may turn into memoirs more than journal but what the heck.

I had a thread somewhere too that was meant to have honeymoon photos in but I didn't even get round to posting all of those and the fun little stories that went with them.

Perhaps I'll put some of the tales in here and upload a photo or two to illustrate.

In a way this is sort of a new beginning

I thought the main problem we had regarding the wedding was the best man's wife and her balloon phobia. Oh how wrong can you be?

I've just had a phone call this evening - was I aware that my friend who was going to conduct the music, organise the choir/singing group who are supposed to be doing a little musical item for us and also doing the main floral arrangement for inside the chapel has just been brought home from Portugal with a broken foot?

Apparently she fell down a marble staircase. Now don't get me wrong. I didn't immediately think "omigosh, wedding plans gone to pot!" I thought "Oh poor thing how awful." and only after I was sorting out when visiting times were so that I can go and...
