I really love eating, you know? I love that FULL, BURSTING at the seams feeling – and still I wonder how I ended up 30kg overweight. Not.

I have been tracking my food for 3 days now and it’s so hard to get used to having less food. I’m not hungry, mind – just not FULL. And I loves me being a-full. And I am currently mourning that full feeling.

But I am determined to do this. Normally by day 3 I find myself going out to dinner and throwing caution to the wind and inhaling beer and oil…but tonight I am having a salad with a lovely home-roasted portobello mushroom and home-made tamarind lentils (plus other things). I am managing to stay under 1900 calories a day.

I see the long-suffering dietician tomorrow night so will check in then…
