24. What habit do you have now that you wish you started much earlier?
Giving up chocolate. I have had an intermittent problem with dairy for a fair while now and now it has come to stay. On top of this I now have gallstones, brought on by my consumption of chocolate over the years. I gave up chocolate nearly three years ago, but still have a bit of a sweet tooth, which has led to weight gain and (inevitably) to gallstones. I had a scan last week – I now have multiple stones, like a bag's worth of bloody peas! I suspect that I might rattle if I jumped but was astounded that I could grit a small path.
Back to the grindstone of dieting early next year, with a view to cut the sugar right back and lose some serious tonneage.
