It is not that it has been a particularly tough couple of weeks, it is just no weight has shifted recently. I know why. I heard Stephen Fry on QI once say, “Weight is all about what you put in your mouth.” It is a simplistic approach but I thought it was really funny and so true.

More recently I have heard him say he has lost his weight due to the eight-mile walks he does each day and also his sensible eating habits have helped. Possibly that is more realistic for many of us, some exercise and sensible eating habits. Stephen has gone down from twenty-one stone to fifteen stone. Still heavier than I have ever been, but you should never compare yourselves to others.

I know I can lose my last seven pounds, but I have been eating more recently. I am not putting weight on I am just not losing those last seven pounds. I do not want to get back into bad habits.

I, therefore, have chosen this week’s song as, “I guess that’s why they call it the blues!” I still love the song.

Don't wish it away

Don't look at it like it's forever

Between you and me I can honestly say

That things will only get better

#

And while I'm away

Dust out the demons inside

And it won't be long before you and me run

To the place in our hearts where we hide

#

And I guess that's why they call it the blues

Time on my hands should be time spent with you

Laughing like children, living like lovers

Rolling like thunder under the covers

And I guess that's why they call it the blues

#

Just stare into space

Picture my face in your hands

Live for each second without hesitation

And never forget I'm your man, Mary Mary

#

Wait on me girl

Cry in the night if it helps

But more than ever I simply love you

More than I love life itself

#

And I guess that's why they call it the blues

Time on my hands should be time spent with you

Laughing like children, living like lovers

Rolling like thunder under the covers

And I guess that's why they call it the blues

Wait on me boy (Wait on me girl)

I Want You To Cry in the night if it helps (yeah)

But more than ever I simply love you

More than I love life itself

#

And I guess that's why they call it the blues

Time on my hands (time on my hands) should be time spent with you

Laughing like children (laughing like children), living like lovers

Rolling like thunder under the covers

And I guess that's why they call it the blues

#

Laughing like children

Living like lovers Elton, living like lovers
