OK. So by week three I'd dropped another four pounds and am nearly back where I want to be. This is my last word on the weight loss for now. Here are ten observations about middle-aged weight loss...

* You can lose weight

I had started to think that as I hit my (very) late forties I had lost the ability to lose weight. Did I have to accept that from now it just inevitably piles on? I would 'take it easy' on the rubbish and the pints for a while and then wonder why I hadn't lost weight. It's because we fool ourselves. Unless you have some plan and a strict regime, you are probably eating way more than you think. For me, the Taylor Made Diet made it really easy. The only hard bit is not eating outside the provided meals. But that's the only rule you have to keep to. So I reckon a couple of simple rules or a strict regime enforced by someone else is your best bet. Don't make it all too complex. The simpler it is, the easier it is to stick to.
