Willpower

by Justine Dunn

Monday; a new week, new incentive and a fresh batch of willpower. The day goes well, no chocolate, no snacks, just a delicious mound of salad (I convince myself). The week progresses; I visit the gym, take evening walks and shop online for clothes that fit me in my fantasies. By Friday I am disheartened, surely my body should have shrunk by now? At the weekend I meet a friend in town for coffee, a muffin flirts with me; you know you want me, it says. I will start my diet on Monday, I tell myself; just as I did this time last week.
