Well a week in and we have not cheated on the diet and have remained steadfast. The reward is a return to what I deem my normal over-weight (as opposed to fat). Trousers fit better. Just in time to appear in court - I will respect myself and hopefully that will encourage the court too as well.
Now dreaming of being 'ideal' weight - but this is an expensive dream as I have bought a dress already. Must stay off ebay!!
