So those of you who follow me on twitter may have seen my tweets this morning about dieting and I got so much support on twitter that I thought I would write a post about it. Every year I make a resolution to eat less food and drink more water regardless of my size, and I stick to it for about a week and go back to eating sweets and drinking cider. Now that I live in Scotland, I work in an office with a canteen that serves food deep fried with a side of mayonnaise coated salad where I actually saw a fella put a Scotch pie in a roll - no word of a lie! Understandably, I have piled on a fair few pounds..
This is me at my preferred size, only a few years ago with a teeny waist and no double chin!
Now don't get me wrong, I'm not some hefer who only wears jogging bottoms! Luckily I stay the same shape regardless of my size and I've learnt an awful lot from Gok Wan over the years on how to dress my shape accordingly:
But even with the waist belts, control pants/tights and hours of standing up straight with my tummy pulled in, it's just not quite enough. I am just not a gym bunny so I've decided to go on the hunt for a good diet/eating plan and after flirting with the idea of the dreaded cabbage soup diet the lovely Ree has suggested the Dukan Diet (and she has a cracking figure). Is anyone else doing it? After doing to reading online it seems like a good plan that will lead me into a more long term healthy lifestyle rather than just a crash diet followed by a binge on sweets!
So any other suggestions of a good diet, advice on how you keep your figure would be fantastic! Thank you for taking the time to read my first 'serious' post - don't panic - I'll still be posting the colourful and light hearted posts I always do :)
