The way to not only lose 100lbs, but keep it off too, is to define yourself as a healthy eater, not as a dieter.
Unfortunately my son, Rogan, of These are not just cakes... is preparing for the Galloway Children’s Fayre in Kirkcudbright this Sunday, where he has booked a stall.
He will be selling his home baked scones, cookies and slices of cake.
His mother is capable of creating the finest home baked scones, cookies and cakes you are ever likely to taste. Rogan is capitalising on his inheritance of genetics and upbringing to produce mouth-watering delights of his own.
Every day this week the house has been full of aromas to make a healthy eater weep.
Meanwhile, in an attempt to avoid chewing my own tongue off, I’ve been erecting a gazebo* in the garden. We thought we’d better buy one in case there are showers (a highly likely event in Scotland) on Sunday, so Rogan wouldn’t have to worry about selling slices of soggy cake.
Another amazing fact of the universe I’ve discovered is the cheapest gazebos have the most pieces and least comprehensible assembly instructions.
