Am I ill?

I’m not a big fan of weighing myself (I don’t think it’s a good indicator of health) but the other day my boy wanted me to get on the scales and like most things with him it’s easier to do what he wants than not. (good parenting)

Once on the scales I realised I’m probably the lightest I’ve ever been as an adult. This made me wonder if I am ill.

My weight loss could of course be down to me not drinking much lager these days or the fact I go to bed just after 10pm so rarely have supper.

I had previously presumed my general level of lethargy was down to me being tired, something that could be rectified by a few good nights of sleep (easier said than done). Now I’m not so sure.

With this in mind, am I ill or just tired & underweight?

Cutting down on the white stuff.

Like Ian Wright I need to cut down on my sugar intake.

This realisation, like most realisations in life, came via porridge.

Whenever I’ve made porridge for myself I’ve always added sugar but for my 1 year old I make it without. Being so young I also have to check the temperature is suitable. I do this through the very sophisticated method of sticking my little finger in the porridge. This however means I then have a bit of porridge on my finger and the easiest way to remove this is by licking it off. On doing this I was surprised that it didn’t taste minging, in fact it was more than passable. Since then I’ve tried to take less sugar in my porridge, my other cereals and my cups of tea (down to about half a tea spoon).

Feel free to tell me about your sugar journey, either via the comments button or @anunknowncomic

Waisting away

I’m losing weight and I didn’t have that much weight in the first place. I didn’t think my weight loss was noticeable but recently a colleague said, “You look like you’ve lost weight.” Then my mum said, “Have you lost weight?” Whilst my other half said she was looking through a photograph which included me from 5 years ago and wondered who, “that guy with the fat face was.”

In practical terms, I knew I was losing weight because in the last 6 months I’ve had to add new holes to my belts on more than one occasion.

This weight loss is in no way a conscious decision, it’s not as if I do any real exercise, unless you count running for the train every morning.

My loss of weight does however seem to have coincided with me drinking a lot less beer and although I’m technically not a qualified doctor, I may prescribe myself a few sessions in the pub. Purely for medicinal purposes.
