If you've ever tried on your bikini (or mankini) and stepped back from the mirror screaming, you'll know the feeling. Where did all that come from - all that flabby stuff, those love handles, that spare tyre in development? (although, come to think of it, a spare tyre does sound useful).
You could try reassuring yourself - after all, everyone knows how summer clothing shrinks during its hibernation in wardrobes during winter. Hmmm. If that doesn't work, read on.
So what's the best way to lose weight in this town?
That's the question we're asking everyone in Brisbane to help us with. Do you have a top secret foolproof method that zaps adipose tissue pronto? Maybe permanently?
Here's a brief review of the standard answers to get you started.
Embracing exercise is an obvious means to a new svelte-self. It doesn't matter what you do, as long as you do it often. Here at Weekend Notes, we've reviewed a bunch of ways to exercise in Brisbane. It's not just about gyms and bootcamp. Why not try pole fitness? Or hot yoga?
And Brisbane has a whole array of walks. Although there can be side-effects of getting around on foot. According to Friedrich Nietzsche, "All truly great thoughts are conceived by walking." So, beware, you may find you have far more great thoughts.
Hoeing only into healthy foods is another obvious path to take. It's a painful thought, but try cutting down on the desserts, unless they're fruit. (And no, a fruit tart is not fruit. There's 3 million calories - give or take - lurking in that pasty).
If exercise and healthy food seem way too hard, you may be tempted to scrutinise some scary surgery – gastric banding, stomach stapling, gastric bypass or liposuction. But check carefully before you buy, see here and here - there can be serious side effects, for example, death. Maybe a better option is an upgrade to a bigger whichever-kini.

My husband and I have did weight loss together. But the way that we do it is good for you and does not harm anyone. We get wraps that are low in carbs, alfa sprouts and he buys 97%fat free deli chicken from Wool worth's. We make wraps with lettuce, onion, alfa sprouts, a little meat and tomatoes or things that does not add any calories. After eating we usually walk about 4 blocks 3 times every night. You do lose the kilos, you exercise, and plus everything is easy on the body and healthy for you. This is the only thing that actually I have ever tried that does work for anyone.
