I have no idea why, but I have a craving for apples.  I find this odd, because apples are my least favourite fruit?  Odd.

We can only put it down to having had less salads at lunchtime.  Perhaps my body is missing a nutritent or two? Well, the apples are in the fruitbowl now.

I'm amazed at just how many miles we clock up just shopping.  Yesterday we covered 2.2 miles and today, about 1.6.  As each mile is worth about 100 calories - this walking, can add up to a lot of weight loss in the long run.  We make it a rule now to park as far away from the shops as possible, and I like to get a few things, return to the car and go back to the shops.  It can turn your usual shopping adventure into a workout!!

Today we had our bacon sandwich for lunch, and tonight we've settled on steak - with our own oven chips and onion rings.  There will be a good rocket salad on the side - something green to cheer the plate.  We'll probably nibble on some cheese and biscuits beforehand too.

Sounds a lot doesn't it.  Certainly not diet food.  But we feel this boost to our metabolism helps our body eventually rid itself of the weight.  Well, whatever it is, it's working a treat.  People are really interested to know what we are eating now, as we have lost so much weight, AND it's stayed off.  We showed a friend our starter from last week, the scallops on cauliflower puree.  His reaction was "how can you be eating that on a diet".  We explained we were NOT on a diet.  He just could not understand it.  He could see we have lost lots of weight, but the food we were eating didn't make sense.  He is just one of many who believe that to lose weight you have to follow some alien diet plan, eating food that is not particularly interesting! But, he's trying - we've noticed his wife is now drinking small glasses of wine rather than large, after we explained how many calories were in one glass.
