    Hi all,

    I am keeping a diary using a blog site and would welcome anyone to visit, check for updates and please leave a comment for me!!

    I have been writing my online diary for nearly 2 weeks, since I embarked on this diet. I have started at 25st 8lb and have a long journey ahead of me.

    This forum site has filled me with inspiration it has loads of great stories of success and well done to everyone. I am determined to lose my weight.

    please take a look at my blog

    Hi GT

    You seem to be doing brilliantly! My hubbie and I have done CD together I think it is lovely too have the support of your OH. I have started a thread Couples Dieting Together in the family/relationships forum. Would be great if you added to that sometime, would love to hear how you are finding dieting together. Or you may just wish to read through and the thread at this stage.

    Glad you are finding Minimins inspirational and hope you continue to post here for support and to encourage others to with your experience and success.

    Good Luck for the coming week. You really seem to have it sussed already.

    just read your blog. well done so far,you're off to a cracking start, & I enjoyed your business like approach to the whole thing. You mention that your wife is doing CD too,& because she's a woman she won't be able to match your losses.if she gets dispirited send he here, if she isn't already.
    Keep it up

    Delightful blog Mr G-T. I admire your courage to do the before pics in under wear, but also should make the progress pics more dramatic without clothes to soften the out lines. I'm sure you'll do well & keep up the blog(plrease)
