They all warned me and I didn’t believe them “Just wait until you hit your thirties and it will start!!”. At first I didn’t notice it but now it’s undeniable that I’m well on my way to becoming spherical. I knew it was time to face facts when my online order of a pair of trousers turned up and to my horror I’d ordered an elasticated waist by mistake – ugh nana pants. Also to my horror, I decided to to keep them after trying them on (Soooo comfy).
Part of the problem is I’m a true disciple of Oscar Wilde – “The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it”. I like beer, wine and pies and pork crackling…oh god the pork crackling!!! The simple adage of “eat less- exercise more” doesn’t seem to be working (perhaps because I’m not actually technically eating less or exercising more). So maybe it’s time to take a look at that skinny smug lot who are evangelising about malt syrup and activated almonds?? I know, they look a little cray-cray but they are THIN, thin I tell you! Not a button hole extender in sight! So, for the next 6 months I’m going to attempt a Zeitgeist diet a month. Will they be actually possible in the realms of real world, will the food be edible and will they actually work??
