This might not seem like a strictly WDW topic. However, the last time I went to WDW, I was on the deluxe DDP and I put on four pounds during a six night stay. Those pounds never came off. So WDW has played its role!
Also, this is a very supportive community and I feel known and cared about here. So I’m confident many of you will want to encourage me.
Six and a half years ago I decided to give up chocolate. After a little research, I realised the true villain was sugar. So I cut out chocolate entirely and as much other sugar as I reasonably could. In a month and a half I lost nearly a stone in weight. For some reason — I don’t remember — I stopped. And all the weight came back. And a lot more.
From 1st September 2021, I’m going to try this again, but this time make it a permanent lifestyle change. I’m posting it here and on other social media in order to put pressure on myself to follow through, and in the hope of receiving support (and perhaps understanding).
My principal rule will be no more milk chocolate. There is evidence that dark chocolate actually has some health benefits. Basically, Cadbury’s is out. I would ultimately like to withdraw from all dessert items. But one step at a time. I will report back on progress, which will be judged by weight loss and any physical benefits which become apparent. In particular, I’m hoping my tendency to feel tired much of the time will fade. And that there will be some, erm, gastrointestinal benefits #overshare
Before deciding to make this commitment I was munching away on some Dairy Milk and I actually noticed I wasn’t even enjoying it. That being said, I do expect some withdrawal symptoms. Luckily, I have no stduents for five days. The worst may be over by then.
One last point. I’m not really looking for commentary or suggestions. I don’t want to be confused by conflicting opinions. I have my plan and I want to try my plan. It worked once before. I hope it will work again. If it fails, then I’ll be open to other approaches.
