I can’t get Michael Mosley out of my mind. It started with the excellent Horizon programme which was broadcast but not totally lost during the Olympics last year. My girlfriends and I chatted about the programme and the lovely Dr. I didn’t take any action. I had a cholesterol check with my own Dr last Autumn. My level is the national average so that ain’t great. Do you know what yours is? I still didn’t take any action. Christmas came and went and more lbs were added to the 10-14 lbs I really need to lose! I bought The Fast Diet book in the first week of January. The whole world buys diet books and signs up to a gym in January. I still didn’t take any action – partly because I was diverted by another friend’s juicing and detox regime. The good Dr keeps popping up though. And it’s a good job that he does. On the One Show last week. On Steve Wright on Radio 2 this week. What’s more, he is so engaging and what both he and Mimi Spencer advocate is inspiring, makes medical sense and appears to beat every other diet I’ve tried. I can lose weight but like most people I can’t keep the weight off. I’m committed to climbing Kilimanjaro in 2014 for Bridge2Aid* so with Dr Michael and Mimi keeping me on track I will climb that mountain carrying fewer lbs I’m sure. I will keep you posted on my progress because today my day started with a fast day. Porridge, banana and hot water with a slice of lemon! *www.bridge2aid.org is a dental charity based in East Africa.
