Good news from the dodgy bathroom of The Hedge this morning. MOTH hopped onto the scales for the first time in about 10 weeks & happy days, he's 11kgs. (24lbs.) lighter! It looks like the No Fat Ever Again Diet is actually working, so I'm delighted. To be truthful it's been a pain to do, researching no fat recipes, thinking in advance about evening meals, trying to maintain interesting & tasty food, locking up his beer supply etc. etc. However, he did say the other night that he hasn't missed the 'good' stuff as much as he thought he would. Although he did roll his eyes the other night when I introduced him to the 'wonderful' world of quinoa as a side dish!
He wandered off & had some fasting bloods taken early this morning, as I'm desperate to know if all this has achieved some lowering of his explosive Serum Cholesterol levels. He would like to be able to abdicate from his current position as record holder at the Medical Clinic. So we'll continue on our way down the Biggest Loser path & see what eventuates.
And as an aside, while keeping him company on this odyssey I've inadvertently lost 6kgs. (13lbs.) so it's not all bad!
