Sketching and losing weight!


Back to the sketchers diet!

For those of you that don't know in June 2008 I spent a month sketching everything I ate as part of a maintenance phase of a big weight loss diet I was on.I needed to keep a food diary but thought it would be more fun to draw instead of just write it down. It proved to be a brilliant plan as 1. slowed me right down while I was eating 2. helped my watercolouring and ability to be able to sketch fast 3. made me very accountable.

Since I am not in a 9-5 office job at the moment but working from home, I have been eating too much (too much food in the house) - so time to bring back the sketching diet!

Already today I have felt a change in my mental attitude. I will try to keep this up for a week and see how it goes. Unlike 2008 when I was on a VERY strict diet and the food I ate was very much the same, this time I am having a week or two of Lite n Easy. I am not at all convinced that LnE is a good diet as it is too enjoyable- they give you lots of yummy things- double chocolate cake this afternoon! It is really designed for you to stay on it for life I think. Crazy - but I decided to do it for a few weeks primarily because it is easy and will be fun to draw. Need to get a better feel for a more accurate scale… didn't even have room for my orange on the page.

An late afternoon sketch- really have to watch the shortening of the days now if I want to get out for a sketch.... anyway time for some more serious sketchercise! On days that I don't go to the gym, I will go for a walk..and do a sketch of course!
