Sensible resolutions: New year goals should be about health

As a point of personal pride, I don’t keep a set of weighing scales in the house and now I know why. At a friend’s house a few weeks ago, I decided to pop on her bathroom scales out of curiosity. What else are you going to do after a few cheeky glasses of prosecco but jump on and sate your curiosity? Well, talk about sobering.

I watched the dial skit past my “heaviest” weight and wobble perilously at a very, very high number. Wow. I know I had tried to drown the existential angst of the last 20 months two years with Doritos and biscuits and wine, but... really? I’m up there? And, because this reaction is inked on every woman’s DNA like writing through Brighton rock, there came the inevitable chaser of shame and guilt and embarrassment. A big auld oopsie, covered in Doritos dust.
