Vegetables are our friends

I used to eat more than 5 portions of fruit and vegetables, but I had been slipping for a while.

Decided to sort it out, as I had started to get a little bit weighty. Been eating mostly just fruit and vegetables and a bit of protein lately (with a tiny, tiny amount of gluten free bread that was reduced at the end of the day, but only a small loaf over the last week) and it seems to be working.

Feel less bloated and am now only overweight rather than getting into the "worryingly close to obese" category. I am still almost a stone more than I was 10 years ago, but as 10 years ago I was at my lightest adult weight I am actually about my average adult weight now.

I am going to aim to get down to about 60 kilogrammes, but I am not going to stress about it, just carry on eating fruits and vegetables as the main part of my diet. Which is what you are supposed to do anyway (rather than the crisps and chocolate diet that I was starting to slip into).

Every time I eat more vegetables I fruit I realise that I only really want to eat vegetables and fruit. Though every time I eat mostly crisps and chocolate I start to think they are all I want.

It has been easier and cheaper than it would have been because of the plentiful early blackberries growing in the back alleyway. Though I should remember I have eaten them next time so I don't get worried when some of them come out almost the same as they went in. Moment of panic for a second.

I didn't ever eat that much processed food (apart from the crisps and chocolate), fortunately, but I have cut out the extra sugar I had started to rely on.

Still can't get into most of my clothes, but I am nearer than I was. Had a three day headache last week, but that seems to have passed. I am going to assume that was "toxins" stuck in my fat, whether that is true or not, and hope my headaches are fewer and further between now.

I have a male cousin that says in 130 days he's went from 293 lb to 253 lb by just avoiding "carbs" whatever that is mind. Of course he's also stopped dropping most things he eats into a deep fryer.

And I'm saddened now, because I was going to visit him specifically so I could request his smoked and deep fried turkey. But that's out of the equation now... so it's like he's dead to me now.

Lesson Learned: If you have an unhealthy blood relative that cooks insanely unhealthy stuff that you'd like to sample on the freebie, then make arraignments to do so, SOON, before they either die or go on a health kick mind.
