    When I was on here a couple of years ago - there was a great thread that I world like to revive.

    I am starting in a village called Chapel Ascote, just outside Stratford upon Avon. Exactly 110miles from home.

    Visualizing each pound you need to lose as 1 mile in a journey, where did you start your journey? And how far from home are you now?

    I've changed my target weight, so my starting place has changed - though my final destination is still home!

    I started at Frinton-on-Sea on 6th January 2011. I'm now at Ingatestone having travelled a long way down the A12. Only 48miles to go!! In 7 miles I'll be on the M25, and then there's only 9 junctions to go before the last 7 miles stint from the motorway home!!!

    Well here goes I will do mine as a journey home

    Start at Keele Road, Newcastle-under-Lyme which is 49 miles away

    I am currently on the M6 having passed the Lymm services (full of foreign truckers a bit scary) and heading towards Knutsford services which is a dump and always a traffic jam

    31 miles to home north on the M6...can't wait to get to the M62 I'm shattered.


    Love this idea by the way x
