Fortunately I don't belong to women who climb on the balance every day to see if they have put on a few grams and then for a week go on diet to get rid of them. I am lucky, I eat what I want but it can happen that sometimes my jeans have "shrinked" ! Then I too check my weight and usually it's not grams but kilos ! Not a real drama, I make an apple cure, that means I eat only apples during the day, usually 6, for a few days and my jeans fit again.

Here on the beach you can watch women who I am sure if they step on a balance will break it. They would need to sit on two chairs because one thigh is as big as my two together. I wouldn't say anything, it could also be a disease but what is not nice at all to see is, that especially these women wear the most narrow bathing suits or even bikinis (I didn't even know that bikinis exist in this size) instead of wearing something large.

Some of them don't know their size either because usually they are too small so that you are afraid that the huge bosom would fall out of the bra in the next seconds. Not to talk about the rear view which shows more than you want to see. Sometimes I pity them, but when I see what quantities they eat only for breakfast, I think it would be enough for a normal person for the whole day !

A balance is dangereous for some people and a comfort for others, but finally at the end as long as everybody is happy and healthy the balance doesn't matter ! 

Temptations !

I also take the opportunity to update my holidays in Egypt.

I don't know what happened, but when I got up and went to the bathroom, I saw blood on the tiles. I looked at myself couldn't find anything, hadn't killed anybody, and finally realized that I had a cut  under my feet in the heel. I called my friend who came with disinfectant and a plaster. It hurts a bit when I walk and I have to tip toe on one leg. Finish to go to the beach because of the sand so I moved to the swimming pool.

That's very nice there too, I could observe what was going on, water checking and general checking by the manager, people laying in the sunshine or swimming.

When I got back to my room I saw some men from the personal busy with decorating the entrance hall of the hotel !

I greeted a Father Christmas in his slide and a man was busy with a huge light wreath, which later hang down from the ceiling.I am sure tomorrow they will work on a Christmas tree. Muslim or not, they had a lot of fun with doing it together with the guests. It was a real Christmas ambiance.

For supper we had international food, Chantal and Nicole look not so convinced, but it was very good a lot of choice and a nice supper.

Later in the evening for the first time I went with Nicole to see a show ! For once we were not so tired.

We waited for a South American dancing group

they were great ! and here I can talk  about another kind of balance ! Unbelievable !

The girls also performed dances which involved a lot of balance. We really had a nice evening.

The cartoon is very funny. Your apples must be much nicer than ours.

I think I'm going to avoid my scales until after Christmas!

Oh dear! How is your foot today?
I cannot eat what I want, so I do have to watch everything I put in my mouth. I have lost 4 kgs since Thanksgiving. I have a lot more to go.

Interesting, I've never heard of the apples diet...
Your Egypt pictures look very relaxing!
I'm your neighbor this week at FMF.

The dancers are quite a sight to see!

When I get a cut, it's usually because I've nicked myself shaving my head. Did it this morning, drew a bit of blood, so I've got a scab on the side of my head today.

Sounds like a wonderful evening. I am going to avoid the scales until after Christmas.

Hi there,
Great pictures. Not sure I want my weight up and down but if it works for you - go for it. Sounds like a marvellous trip.

OH that is too bad about your foot; I hope it is all healed now. But poolside sounded good too. I don't think I could live on apples for even one day, even if my clothes had shrunk. I try to cut back on carbs when that happens and it works to some extent. Although I would never wear a bikini (but I would never have ever for other reasons as well as weight ... just never wanted to show off that way).
