Years of over eating, under exercising other than extreme bursts I.e. 5 months training and 1000 mile bike ride over 2 weeks and then nothing just doesn't make sense. A lack of will power combined with a love of food and a disproportionate opinion of quantity sum up why. I have a wonderful supportive wife, 3 great children and 4 grandchildren I absolutely adore. If anyone recognises my position and my underlying wish for change, please chip in. Support from others would be great. It's taken me a long time to reach the size I am now. I appreciate that there is no quick fix.
