What I'm saying - I'm gonna go on a diet.
What I'm thinking - I'm lying, I've never ever been on a diet, and I probably won't go on one in the near future either.
What I'm saying - I love exercising.
What I'm thinking - This reminds me of the other lie I just told... I haven't exercised for years.
Not sure why I keep lying to myself - I love to eat a lot, a lot, and like 4 times a day at least. Also, I don't exercise. This kind of gives me the lost in limbo effect, with fitting into my clothes or being a happy chubby kid dilemma.
People who knew me before moving to London are often shocked when they see me, because I always used to be the skinniest person in the room without a doubt, and now I'm soft like a little cloud.
Why did I gain so much weight ?
I made a deal with an evil little fairy to catch Luca, the evil fairy said: “Sorry Babes, but with Luca comes great responsibility... to eat all of his amazing food.”
There is no way to escape the delicious food, this is my life now.
I used to be famous for eating only buckwheat porridge and plain pasta. I was the biggest headache for my mum when growing up, she always had to cook separately for me because I refused to eat most dishes since I was a baby.
So I thought that if there is no way out of this road to Tastyland, I might as well learn how to cook myself... I even fried my first egg one day.
Reasons for the experiment:
1) The last time I ever spoke with my mum, she said that her biggest regret in life was that she never forced me to learn how to cook. Forced, because she tried and I didn't care. Now all her amazing recipes are gone with her, and I feel horrible about it... I am trying with my brother to cook them from memory, but it's not the same.
I'm now making up the lost time with my mum, by forcing Luca's mum to show me their family recipes.
2) Luca asked me the other day that when we have babies what am I going to cook for them!? Good question. Good question. (Panic alert)
3) I was ill for quite a long time so I had to do a lot of research on different diets like the usual gluten, lactose- free, Low GI, FODMAP etc. Since I got a good idea of what makes me feel better when I eat, it is much easier to cook healthy food as well, even if it has some naughty stuff in it.
I'll try to make Mummy and Luca proud now. I will be infamous for eating everything and cooking much much more by the time I am finished. I'm gonna be on it like stink on cheese! (pinky promise)
NB! I am determined to finish this experiment without gaining another 10kg though.
At least Bianca likes my cooking, let's see if others will follow...
