    I have been reading through my diary from earlier on the year, and came across this. For those of you who weren't around at the beginning of the year have a little read. It was eye opening for me!
    (I can't take credit for this - I think it belonged to Surfhunny)


    Every pound of fat is an overeat of 3,500 calories.

    Wow!

    So I started at 16st 6. My bmi 25 weight is 9st 2.

    So 102lbs overweight.

    3,500calories x 102lb is 357,000

    I was last a healthy weight in December 2003. (7 years ago).

    357,000 calories divided by 7years is an overeat of 51,000 calories per year.

    365 days in a year equals an overeat of just 140 calories a day!

    That's just 35 jelly beans!
    Or
    A WW chocolate eclair
    Or
    3 fingers of a Kit Kat
    Or
    3/4 of a bag of cadbury's buttons!

    Wow. That has made my head spin!

    I really should have said "no" just once a day more than I did, and I wouldn't be overweight. That's mad.

    dunno
    since losing weight, now I think to myself, yes that will matter. Leaving a bite of food on the plate, making better choices and not thinking how it wont make much difference.
    It just shows us that the little things DO count! :]
