I Must Confess…Diet Disasters
A quick confession from me today as I’ve been otherwise occupied this past weekend.
First off, I must confess that I have been pretty much Eurovisioned-out after two big nights and one very early morning. I never thought it was possible but I believe the excitement of being able to really vote this time around did the job. Guy was fab and did us proud with a top 5 finish. The winner was worthy (although predictable) and the final overall was much better then the semi-finals indicated it would be.
All that remains now is to work out a way to get to Sweden next year to see it live…
Now, onto my main confession for the week. I must confess, I put on at least 3 kilos on my recent trip to the US. Yes, the GF friendly buffets and the American sized portions did their job marvellously. This has, of course, resulted in my need and desire to find a way to lose the weight. Again.
I have tried my fair share of diets and weight loss plans over the years. I am a Weight Watchers lifetime member, twice over. I’ve also tried the shakes and the meal replacement bars and the powders. I’ve done Paleo and a version of the Atkins diet. And goodness knows whatever other crazy thing that was peddled, particularly back in the 90s when I was most impressionable. For instance I remember drinking warm water because it’s good for digestion only to find it’s not so good for the tastebuds and gag reflex.
But the craziest diet I ever went on wasn’t really a diet at all. I managed to lose literally 2 kilos overnight when I had to prepare for a colonoscopy. This required a huge “cleanse” beforehand which involved not eating for at least a day before the procedure, drinking a foul drink to get things moving and then surviving through the subsequent hours of the “cleanse.” Brutal yet effective…
What crazy diets have you tried over the years? Do you have a diet disaster to share? And do you have any tips for me as I try to find a way to shift my current excess weight?
