        Well done mate. A great story made better as it comes across as sharing the secret to life rather than the trumpet blowing....you got any before and after photos??

        Shut up and run

          The BEST kind of stories. Thanks for sharing.
            So, eat right and exercise you say? Someday, someone will write a book that presents that idea well and make millions. Anyway, well done and congrats to you!

              That is brilliant, what a difference you have made. I didn't know you could lose a shoe size from losing weight! (mental note to try that....)

               

              You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great.
