Z is stable - in respect of weight, anyway

It took a post from Badgerdaddy for me to realise for how long I've neglected this blog.  Last time I wrote, I'd been losing weight without trying but worse, so had my husband.  It turned out that he had cancer of the oesophagus and nothing could be done about it and he collapsed and died in my arms, literally - and unexpectedly - in August last year.

This is not a blog about widowhood and all that - without a husband who couldn't eat and was losing weight drastically, my own weight has stabilised.  I cook and eat and look after myself.  I haven't weighed myself for ages, but am about half of Badgerdaddy's present weight - blimey, Badge darling, what's that about?

Diets that leave out major food groups aren't for me.  I'm glad that butter, eggs, salt and so on are readmitted to the spectrum of permissable foods - but I'd never given them up anyway.  I know that more people nowadays have to be careful about what they eat, eg gluten or wheat, but I'm not one of them.  I have no reason to think that I'm allergic or intolerant to any food.  So it's about putting the fork down and not overeating, as far as I'm concerned.

Success is a bit up and down in that respect, admittedly, but overall I'm still a size 10, which is what I want to be.  I think I look pretty damn good and I am happy with my size.

My second hip is getting painful and, whilst it's not imminent, I feel that a hip replacement isn't that far away.  A year or two, I should think.
