    Please listen to this song on youtube:

    YouTube - Somewhere Over the Rainbow

    Somewhere over the rainbow...

    The singer, Israel Kamakawiwoole was obsese and at one point carried 758 pounds (343 kg) (54 Stone) on his 6 foot, 2 inch (1.88 m) frame. He endured several hospitalisations and died of weight-related respiratory illness at the age of only 38.

    Please take a moment to listen to the song and remember the reasons why you are doing this diet - to have the healthy life you deserve.

    Love Bunny xxxxxxxxx

    It is a beautiful song, we played it at our wedding.

    I had no idea he had died. Such a waste of talent.

    A sobering thought for us all.
