The tyre around my tummy

Earlier this week I lamented on FaceBook about this damn tyre around my midriff, questioning its origin, as it seems to have snuck up on me during just last night? No, of course not!  It has now been a companion for some time, but it actually seems to inflate faster than a life-raft being triggered!!

Until my car accident a few years ago – actually 8 years already, I had the enviable flat tummy, with some faint lines clearly visible of a six-pack.  I could wear little mid-riff tops right up to that point, and be confident.  Since then, hormonal tummy fat, in the distinct form of a tube, has gathered firmly above my once well-protruding hip bones.

Of course I have slacked up on the exercise, I absolutely adore sweets and treats, and I am just generally less mobile than before!

I’ve read some articles about cutting out wheat, with the promised result of this tube deflating again almost overnight, but now some of my darling friends tell me they have cut out bread and wheat products many moons ago, and yet they still carry the tube?  Any thoughts on this out there?  Photos found on the web – I’ll be damned if I give mine any airing!!

About suletta

Fell in love again at age 50! And followed my man to Zanzibar, for him to set up a dairy farm. I managed to travel into Africa a few times in my life, always loving it and experience the "fever" that grips you on African soil - the one that especially the Europeans now and in years gone by, suffer from. Except I am an African by birth - a South African. A Mzungu.So I discovered at this late stage in my life (not that I feel old!) that some people find my babblings about life interesting, and I quote: "live their lives vicariously through me".
