Being sociable comes with its pitfalls especially when the ultimate goal is to lose weight. Halloween is nutritionally bad as the majority of the food is high in refined sugar with little in the way of nutritional content. Our hosts this weekend made a huge effort to make sure I didn’t go without, so I was eternally grateful for that.
The problem for me is that I have no option but to follow the plan I’ve set myself. Having been on the receiving end of bad health and bad diet for nearly 20 years means I cannot lose focus at such a crucial point in my plan.
Losing 35kg is not something that can be achieved overnight, so this time of year is particularly awkward with Bonfire night and Christmas looming.
But persevere I must if I’m to stand any chance of reaching the golden 70kg before next September…
