    So... Starting tomorrow. As it is tomorrow decided to have one last pizza tonight.

    Apart from the obvious (308 lbs !!!) the main reasons I am losing weight is for health (knees deserve a bit of a rest), fitness, better fitting clothes and work. Would be nice to have a shirt that isnt straining at the seams around the belly, go into a shop and find things quickly that fit.

    As for work, I am in the armed forces - not a particularly job, but there are times when the weight is a disadvantage, and need to drop weight for promotion etc.

    Kinda looking forward to it but also not liking the idea of it - a bit strange, but there you go - very difficult to explain.

    Will try and update as often as I can, just for my sanity and nothing else...

    ♫ If you'd be my bodyguard I can be your long lost pal, I can call you Betty, Betty when you call me you can call me Al ♫

    I apologise for that *hangs head in shame* I just love that song and obviously your name makes me think of it =)

    I agree, all the shakes are surprisingly nice, but wait 'til you have the nutty bar ...nomnom!

    Had a choc shake this morning before work - never been keen on chocolate shakes (not even mcdonalds) so just held my breath while drinking it... munching the toffee n nut bar while typing - got to say - my fave so far :D

    Hi Al the choc is lovely hot, I have that hot and also the vanilla one in which I add a spoon of coffee.

    Got to say I love your weight loss chart too.
