I watched a documenary last night called ?Super Slim Me?, originally shown on BBC3, and now on BBC2, and must say it was very good television. Its maker Dawn Porter wanted to see what it would take for her to slim down from a UK size 12 down to a US size zero (a UK size 4) and used ?techniques? and fads that are around, many promoted by ?celebrities? or by models.

The documentary, as the title suggests, goes down much the same route as Morgan Spurlock?s feature documentary ?Super Size Me?, except obviously focusing on weight-loss as opposed to weight-gain, although both showed that either side of the weight spectrum has many associated risks.

The fact that I was so ill and weak proved enough of a point. It is over. I can eat. Oh my god I can eat! I am having a dinner party tonight for my friends, cooking cottage pie and loads of other stuff. I have got hummus to start and cake for dessert and I am going to eat the lot. I don?t care if I get fat for a bit ? I deserve it!
I?m trying to lose weight, but I don?t think I could ever have that type of conviction, and neither would I want to, although I do need to get some more will power back. At the start of the diet I was very strict, avoiding anything unhealthy, but I?ve slipped back into having a few snacks and also drinking lager.
I?ve have been good though this week (from Monday morning), and will have to try and stick to this and get it all going again, as I was making good progess about a month ago until I hurt my knee, which was a very good excuse as to why I couldn?t exercise but not a good excuse as to why I had to slip back into my old eating habits.
This means that you will be getting a few more boring blog entries about the diet, but I think it will keep me in check a little more.
