Was able to give blood today – have got my haemoglobin count back up due to stuffing industrial amounts of meat.

Analysis: need to read more pinterest. It’s like Twitter but with photos. Lots of inspirational weight-loss quotes.

Analysis 2: 10st3 when I was expecting to be about 10st7! Think this is due to my water bottle. It reminds me to drink water when drinking booze, so I don’t get too drunk & go on a stuffing spree.

Stars for bras (Thursday, 1 star)

Analysis: am getting totally bogged down with my various tasks and resolutions. (Will stick with the champagne reward for when I finish the Steve Jobs biography.)  I’m going to award stars for different tasks. Each star adds up to £1. When I’ve got enough, I’ll invest in some new lingerie. See ‘Stars’ page for more details.

Boxing Day

Banana

Walk at The Chase.

Bread, butter, ham, Epoisse & cucumber.

1 ginger chocolate biscuit.

Cup of tea.

Shared bottle of champagne with B.

Lots of ham and lamb with Piccalilli, mustard and mint sauce.

Disgusting glass of Jameson’s Triple Distilled.

Switched to Macallan (Xmas present for RF, sorry).

1 chocolate biscuit.

Some Schwäbische Wirbele (small biscuits).

Roast spuds, manges tout, carrots, lamb, Yorkshire puds, gravy. Chicken legs.

Lovely Lindt caramel chocolate. Some 90% chocolate.

Analysis: From now on am only allowed ONE MEAL after starting drinking. The alcohol calories aren’t the problem – it’s the stuffing I do once I start drinking. New motto: Eating is Cheating.

Analysis 2: Need to get back into grouping my eating into meals (max 4 per day + fruit).
