Pursuing pointlessness

Excessive consumption and obesity are two of the great banes of our times. We all need to do what we can to reduce our intake of food, both for the sake of the planet and in order to keep our weight in check.

Danielle and I have gone for the Weightwatcher programme, which I’m enthusiastic to be following.

It works by assigning points to foodstuffs. You then set out to minimise the number of points you eat at each meal, and keep your daily intake below a certain level.

Pointlessness therefore becomes your purpose.

Who’d have thought a mere dietary regime would have given me the opportunity to live out such an enchanting paradox?

Seeing as I'm so late to comment, this would be a good time to ask - are you still following it? Is it working for you?

Besides, I thought you were doing very well on the whole weight loss thing
