This is the week we started buying in little Christmas-type treats for the forthcoming festivities. Salami, nuts and marzipan stollen cake are not well known dietary supplements, funny old thing. During the two-week Commando Diet I had steely resolve and didn’t veer off the plan at all. Well, only a tiny bit on the last two days when we were away from home. I remained aloof when cooking comfort food for my wife. I sneered in the face of peanut brittle. I shunned bread with haughty disdain. Now that willpower seems to have melted away with my first six kilos of fat. Every day I succumb to some little treat and am not sticking to my own plan. Result; only half a kilo weight loss. Could try harder, as my school report used to say.
