Afterwards, I treated myself to a nice green curry with rice and king prawns. Yummy! But a bit rich and as my stomach is no longer used to such things, it is now making the most embarrassing noises. I also bought myself a griddle pan, which should help with the diet.
Which is going exceptionally well - I'm nowhere near where I want to be, but I have dropped a dress size; and all by cutting out rice, pasta, potatoes, cappucinos and chocolate. Amazingly simple really, if a bit austere at times.
