So I've finally taken the plunge and joined a local slimming world club. Was a bit apprehensive at first, particularly being the only guy there but everyone was so friendly and made me feel so welcome. Due to my work pattern I can only attend every other week so thought I'd try and find some online support for when I'm struggling and this seemed like a great forum. As you can see from my stats its definitely time for me to make a major life style change or I may not be enjoying too many more new years. Would love to be able to get on a plane by the end of 2014 and not have to ask for a seat belt extension! Really hoping come this time next year I'll be able to say 2014 was the year that changed my life!
