Dear Cabby
Congratulations on losing those 11 kg - the next time you are in the supermarket have a look at 11 tubs of margarine each weighing 1 kg to realise just how much fat you have lost. Please don't stress about the 2 pieces of cake you ate and also don't try starving yourself or skipping one of your diet meals, as all these actions are counterproductive. Just return to your sensible eating and up your exercise for this week and you won't gain any weight from this lapse.
