'Two pounds! How is it possible to gain two pounds in one week?'
'You eat too much,' Husband said.
I scowled at him. 'You're supposed to say the scales are lying.'
'But I like you roly poly. It's sensual and sexy. But I like you slimmer as well because I know that gives you more confidence.' (He's a lovely husband.)
Strictly speaking, according to my Rosemary Conley weigh-in, I have gained 2.5 pounds. Seriously, how is it so easy to gain but so hard to lose?
Then I remember the teacher from the RC slimming class I used to attend saying that fat cells are like balloons. the first time you blow them up it's tricky but each time they're deflated it becomes easier to blow them up again. So really, if you think about it, losing weight makes it easier to get fatter.
Also when you lose weight you need fewer and fewer calories so you have to eat less when you're thin than when you're fat. Which doesn't seem fair at all.
Right, so, proper diet ... no, I really mean it ... starts again today.
