Less Sleaze – Week 3

Saturday 12 September 2009

It’s nice to know that old habits die hard.

Trawling through some old bits of writing I’d done I came across this, dated November 2005:


In one of my many half-hearted attempts to loose a bit of tummy I started a detox style diet where you basically eat nothing but carrot and celery soup. Every day you fill yourself to you burst on your homemade carrot and celery soup, treating yourself to the occasional apple or floret of broccoli, and even, when you’ve been very good on Day 5, to a nice piece of steamed fish. For seven days you follow this diet and at the end of the week the weight will have simply fallen away!

Eight hours into this adventure I discovered the unnerving fact that I hate carrot and celery soup. To award myself for sticking to the diet for a whole half day, I’m having a dinner of dips, cheese and dolmades on sesame water cracker biscuits. Somehow I think, once again, I’ve missed the point…

Ah, you see Clyde – old habits; old, old habits!

On that note, I weighed myself this morning before going out (I went to a baby’s naming ceremony – lots of nummy food) and have just jumped on the scales again. Both measurements were the same: 86.5.

10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 Sleaze
87.3 86.3 85.2 85.8 86.0 85.0 86.0 86.5
-1.0 -1.1 +0.6 +0.2 -1.0 +1.0 +0.5
-1.0 -2.1 -1.5 -1.3 -2.3 -1.3 -0.8

You know, this on-going series gets more and more tedious ever week.

Stay tuned for the next exciting adventure!!!…
