Well, firstly happy new year! Had an amazing evening, with friends round last night. Ate and drank plenty as I knew today is my new start. About 1.30, when everyone had gone to bed, I decided to get on the scales, while I was happy and a tad (yeah ok) merry. 16 stone 13.....about 8lbs more than I expected. I know it was at night, so maybe a bit of a false reading, but it's done now, and I know where I'm starting from. To get to the upper end of a healthy weight band, I need to lose 5 stone 7 lbs, which is a nice round number of half stone chunks. Quite a lot of them but it is what it is. I'm also doing Dry January so I made sure I tipped what alcohol was left down the sink, although I'm very determined not to drink. Here we go peeps, onwards and downwards. And here's to a happy, healhierarchy and lighter 2017.
