The weighting game

It has been brought to my attention that there has been no weight report of late. Well, that's partly down to the fact that we've been away (actually, that's just an excuse) - it is, in fact, purely down to the fact that I'm being a bit of a wimp and a coward. You see, I'm so close to target now that if I stand on the scales and it tells me that I'm still a few pounds short, I might (perversely, you may think) feel a bit crushed. What I want is to stand there one more time and for the right figures to flash up. Then it's job done, let's celebrate, don't bother cutting me a slice, I'll have the whole cake. So my thinking is, the longer I leave it, the more likely I'll get the right result when I do eventually brave the scales. Whatever happens, this all ends on April 9th, five months after it started. Whatever I am on that day, that'll be that and I'll move on to a maintenance style diet - in particular, maintaining my love of sweet doughy pastries and Indian takeaways. Which is a roundabout way of saying that you'll have a weight report no later than Good Friday and hopefully earlier if I can summon the courage to step on and let go of the wall....

Maybe we should postpone your visit to Indigo Dream until April so that I can feed you Krispy Cremes with your latte!
ps. Only joking - I think you've done a great job with the diet :-)
pps. Apropos nothing! How did you persuade A to let you have 5 greys?

A question from Joe.
Have you changed your hair colour?
Spotted in Bourne woods this morning, woman with beret, Starsky and Hutch cardigan, red trainer bottoms and wild copper coloured hair - babbling to the FIVE greyhounds she was walking.

Sue, I will reveal all next week re: my persuasive powers.

Lesley, good to hear there's another lunatic escaped from the asylum.

Sounds as if the woman in bourne woods shares my impeccable fashion sense - if she likes coffee then me and greygal obviously have another soulmate!
