I've lost the will to live

by Charles
(Milton Keynes, United Kingdom)

Not really, but over the past 30 years I have lost over 100 pounds in weight.

Unfortunately in the same time I've gained 110. Now I am 54, I have officially quit slimming. The moment came a couple of days ago.

My mother stayed for Christmas, and bought a massive Christmas pudding. It was wonderful, rich and succulent and went down beautifully with lashings of custard. Then a couple of days ago she went home.

Time to celebrate! I found the rest of the pudding was still in the fridge. I did something terrible. I actually looked at the calories and sugar content.

How awful is that? One eighth of the pudding contained 59.6 grams of sugar. I am diabetic, and I decided that death by Christmas pudding is not a pretty sight. I can't imagine why, but I threw it away.

I have been in mourning ever since.

No, Charles - not in mourning, but look upon it as 'seeing the light'.

YOU are the best thing that has ever happened to you. You are unique so take care of what YOU have.
