  1. So wish we lived near one another, I love to walk, feel better overall and we would have a grand time encouraging one another. Keep us posted as you find the time please.

  2. Good going!! Your positive attitude has triumphed again! You’re a good influence on me…..I joined Weight Watchers this week, and am determined to make it work. Thanks for a great blog!

  3. I’ve just discovered your wonderful blog and been having fun reading through your posts. This idea of rationing was so inspiring that when I got home from work I pulled out all my old ‘war time’ cook books (even one my mother gave me with the blue wartime rationing section) to see what I could make for myself.

    However, I have a question, which I think you might have addressed elsewhere, but I haven’t come across. How do you determine how much food per week to use/eat? I assume all fruits and vegetables, in season, are OK. Its the other stuff I can’t figure out.

    Are we allowed one loaf of bread a week? How many eggs? Ounces of meat? etc.

    Sorry for all the questions! I’m just really excited to try my own 40s style cooking. If I tell my mother, I’m sure she’d think I flipped my lid 🙂

  4. Well done Carolyn, wish I had your tenacity!!! I’ll get there i guess. Making a concerted effort this week to start up again…Just wondering if you have OXO where you are, though now I think about it, it is a beef stock so you probably don’t use it. Do you have a vegetarian substitute? I just don’t like the texture of meat and the thought of it. I have however used OXO stock in cooking and have made some great veg stews with it and adding potato/cheese dumplings to stews makes them so hearty.

  5. Hi Carolyn, I’ve just discovered your Blog, it’s SO interesting! Thank you and good luck with the weight loss.

  6. Keep going:it’s fresh weight so it should shift fairly easily. I’ve shed my Christmas weight now, plus a pound. It was quite easy once I started back at the gym.
