It's more than a fortnight now since I started my latest diet (I'd call it a health kick, but to be honest it's more of a toe-poke), so I feel I should report on my progress before I lose the use of my fingers due to extreme muscle wastage.

I've actually lost thirty pounds. Which was the price of three months subscription to the Weight Watchers website. It was worth it though, because after two weeks of slow fasting and phat slimming, I've lost a total of 5lb. Which is fantastic news, because according to Weight Watchers' advanced online calculations, I only need to lose another four-and-a-half stone to be healthy. I think I must have entered my height wrong.

To be honest, I've found it fairly easy. The all-new Pro-Points version of Weight Watchers allows you to eat as much fruit as you like, so I've been going bananas in spectacular fashion. The worldwide banana price seems to have crashed in recent weeks, and all the supermarkets are selling them at 55p a kilo. It means I can eat a pound of bananas a day (and don't think I'm not) for about 25p. If this carries on until Christmas, I'll have saved enough money to get liposuction, and the whole diet will be pointless.

But in the meantime, I think there's every chance I'll be in a bikini next summer. Although I'll be wearing it under my work clothes, so no one will know.

I'm sorry Phil but if you tried to eat that amount of bananas up until christmas I think you would slip up.

But you're right about the price.  I've just been and bought some, after your recommendation.
