It's been a very busy week and I've run out of time to write my usual tome. Instead I sat down this afternoon to reflect on the superb success I feel I've achieved with Diet Chef.
Not only is the 28 Day Hamper so easy, fuss-free and packed with tasty food, it takes the entire fuss out of buying special foods, taking ages preparing food and weighing everything out. I haven't dieted for so many years because I've never had the patience with all of that. Diet Chef food is so full of choice and flavour that it's been the easiest diet I have EVER been on. It's really changed my attitude towards how to lose weight, and in truth, it's given me a small boost of confidence, not least because of all the lovely things people have said to me. I've lost inches on my waist, hips and thighs and some people have warned me "don't you lose too much!". Well there really is no danger of that, I've been overweight all of my life. My BMI measurement is only down to 28 (which is classed as Overweight), and being 5ft 7inches, I wouldn't want to be under 11stone anyway. I'm the lowest weight I have been for about 7 years so I'm going to enjoy that for now and relish trying to lose a few more pounds in my own way. Check out my show all about Health & Fitness this week and also another Diet Chef show coming up in early March if you need any help in trying to get fitter, healthier or lose a few pounds.

Well I was back at the Cole family home on Sunday for a gathering of our small clan to have lunch around the big dinner table for the very last time in the home in which I was raised since 1978. We arrived just before my 7th birthday in the August and I remember it well – marvelling at how large our living room was. Well everything looked bigger when you're a kid, the house was a standard-sized 3 bedroom semi with a modest garden, not a mansion by any stretch of the imagination. Yet more boxes of my stuff from childhood were uncovered and I found a folder with this fella in – evidence of my first ever bank account which Mum opened for me when I was about 11years old, I reckon. Do you remember The Griffin?? No prizes for guessing, but which bank bought out MIDLAND BANK? I also found boxes of VHS tapes galore and one of my very first 'ghetto blasters' – I'm going to sort through those in the coming months! So this week is the big move – I'm heading back to Brum with my eldest brother, The Hubz, my nieces and their boyfriends to help assist my Mum in clearing and moving out of the house and into her wonderful new apartment in the retirement village. Will keep you updated!
