I wondered whether I could make some treats using wholemeal flour and some honey (and eggs and milk etc) so checked with the doctor on my visit...no said the doctor! How about fruit, raw vegies, nuts and cheese when the 'hungries' strike? that was ok by the medico.

But some things have happened which are a big surprise to me. I don't feel as hungry as I used to. I actually have more energy and I can refuse dessert/cakes/pastries when we are out, without feeling deprived. I can have a cup of coffee or tea without feeling the 'need' to eat something sweet to accompany it.
Woot woot! This is quite a breakthrough after years of indulging!
However the other day I discovered another outcome...I rarely stand on scales...hate them in fact. But I stood on the bathroom scales and saw that I'd lost some weight since being weighed at the cardiologist's office. I'd lost just over 3 kgs. Now even though I hadn't had weight loss as a goal, at first I said to myself...hmmm 3 kgs in 2 months...pretty ordinary. Then I thought some more...it's better to lose weight slowly. Then I went to the pantry and got out some cans of food until I had just over 3 kgs (3kg20grams)...it was quite heavy and I've lost it!
