Blood and Weight Loss

It was blood testing again today. They are bleeding me weekly as my results are failing to impress. There’s probably a pun or two in there somewhere, bearing in mind that I’m not much good at bleeding and am therefore bleeding weakly. I’m also getting bleeding irritated at having to go in every week.

This week I managed to provide a sample after being stabbed in the arm just the twice. This is better than recent results and I’m glad to report I hardly felt a thing.

I thought I’d get weighed while I was there, as I wanted to check if I was actually losing weight or whether the slack trousers were merely an illusion.

It turns out that I have actually lost nine pounds in the last four weeks.

I’ve not used any fancy diets, and done very little exercise, just cut out bread, potatoes, pasta and rice. And cut back severely on chocolate and cakes. I’ve also started cutting down on portion sizes. Simple things, small steps, and so far it’s producing reasonable results.

        It deserves to sell millions, as it is a simple yet elegant solution to weight loss.

        As it’s the diet I’m now following I could give you a quote for the book jacket if you like.

    It sounds like all the things you are foregoing are the things that you love! Been there, done that you can survive it, you just learn to survive on different foods!

    I’m eating lots of fruit, vegetables and All Bran for supper. No potatoes or pastry or dairy or sweet things. That also seems to be working but the lifelong problem for me is keeping it going.

      Fruit, veg and fibre with a lack of sugar and carbs is my ideal too – I’m still on dairy though. I’m still moving towards it, but I’ll now use you as motivation. šŸ™‚
