more normal

today I did not feel strange on waking, and on checking my weight I have lost a little more, so I ate Dr Atkins' revenge - that is bacon and eggs for my morning meal, after a few walnuts which worked yesterday so I might as well continue to eat them as I have many day's supply of them in the bag in the fridge.

This afternoon I went out walking, and ate a small slice of melon when I returned. Over the last years I have been cutting larger and larger slices of melon - it is back to the half inch at most ones now, and no more water melon as it would go off before I could eat all of it.

I visited the clinic and could walk up and down the stairs, no more using the lift.
I have an appointment with the nurse on Thursday (Tuesday today) so we will see how that goes. At least I am beginning to feel like my old self again, I just have to fight my way down from my present weight back to something sensible. I somehow doubt that I'll ever have a 24 inch waist again.
