I need to remember to write my blog! It is part of what keeps me on track with my diet because every day, when I am writing it, I am both thinking about weight loss and whether I can write something about weight loss (answer: not every day, apparently) but I am also engaged in writing and therefore not actually eating as I require both hands to type and would only be able to take in calories via a straw and we do not have any straws in the house (this is not true - we do have straws but I can't remember where they are so I am unable to take advantage of them)
So I nearly forgot today, having forgotten yesterday. Luckily, yesterday I forgot but was occupied in the watching of a bad film at the pictures. And I do not buy popcorn or Maltesers at the pictures as I consider them to be a terrible rip off.
Also, and forgive me if I have told this story before, when I used to go to the pictures a lot in Derby I did buy sweets and stuff.
I picked up a bag of Maltesers and put them on the counter. 'And can I have a large diet coke as well, please?'
The girl behind the counter, as she drew up my diet coke, said to me, 'Because diet coke will absorb all the malteser calories, won't it.'
I really don't need that kind of abuse. It only took me fifteen years to act upon the shame this diet coke pourer inflicted on me.
