It's at time like these that you get those little self-doubts.
The first two weeks have been good; dramatically better than I thought beforehand. But I've been through weight-loss programmes before, and I know that things tend to tail off. It's the law of diminishing returns, I suppose. Or whatever you call it when you're not actually returning anything. Perhaps it's the law of diminishing reductions.
Anyhow, enough of this - you're only here for the leer, aren't you? Here we go then:
Another two pounds off! So that's nine pounds in three weeks. Nine gone, anothere nineteen to go if I'm to reach my target and raise as much cash as possible.
I'm still pleased with my progress so far. There is a pattern emerging, though. Four pounds in the first week, then three pounds, now two. Hopefully the law of diminishing reductions is just a figment of my fevered imagination. We'll see.
