    I am currently just under 13 stone......

    Having seen photos of me when I left school in 2002, I have now (finally) decided to get rid of the excess and try to get down to 147lbs.

    Gone are the crisps, chocolate and takeaways...

    I have behaved over Christmas and not put on any weight.

    Today the training started (with a shocking hangover)

    Two mile run.
