I think I had 100s of those fresh baked chocolate chip cookies on the Golden Princess during our Hawaii cruise last year. I wasn't the only one. Always a line at the little pastry/deli shop.

I'm not a coffee drinker, but the wife really enjoyed the coffee card on Princess, and had her a daily uber-coffee. Wish they had that deal on RCL.

So you joined CM Aug 2009 - nearly 24 months ago ?

30 lbs weight loss/24 months = 1.25 lbs per month

1.25 lbs = 4400 cals approx

So you ate 1 UK standard pack of chips or 1 large slice of rye/wholemeal bread less daily.

OK I buy that.

Well done you Henry.

You all know I worked onboard ships as a stage manager - five different ships in all.

We all also know how young women like to eat.

It was always interesting to watch the dancers in the companies onboard come on slim as rail, fresh from their auditions and a month of daily rehearsals. But once they get onboard the rehearsals stop (because they do the same shows every week, a few times), and they have all day to do very little.

After six months or so you usually start to see the saddlebags coming back.

On Holland America I could not resist the ice cream and fresh baked cookies they put out at lunchtime. SO good.

Also - my favorite thing in the world is dunking pastries in coffee. Its sinful, because there is no way you can avoid looking like a slob when you do it (the coffee will always drip on your shirt and crumbs go everywhere). I often hear people laughing audibly when I do this - oh well.

I had an amazing piece of strawberry cheesecake on the Carnival Magic. Totally worth it!
