A large woman has just sat down next to me on the train.
Well I say ‘next to me’, but it’s more like ‘next to me and a little bit on me too’
Anyway, she’s whipped out a note book and opened it, revealing a food diary.
I’m always proud of people making the effort to lose weight. Over the last 2 or 3 years I’ve lost 5 stone (70 pounds) in weight and it’s been both a physical and mental struggle. Those who know me have seen my transformation and I have always appreciated the kind words and encouragement. It takes a lot to make the active decision to change your life and say “enough is enough”.
So good for her.
As she fumbles for a pen in her bag I glance over and see the words ‘hot dog fingers with ketchup’ and ‘pack of sausage rolls’ amongst many others.
