This is a couple of firsts for me. First time dieting and first time writing to a forum/community. I have to loose 6 stone. Why ? That's my goal. For that so many years I have been piling on the kg's. I used to be a muscular bricklayer, but through career progression has ended up in an office job, but my eating habits didn't change. Chocolate from the garage for breakfast, pies for 10.00am snack, sandwich for lunch with more chocolate, chocolate bar on way home, evening meal and a pack of dunkers with my cup of tea before bed. I was diagnosed as pre type 2 diabetic last year, but over this last year have managed to modify my eating habits and recent blood test show all clear. The only problem is the weight is there. So new beginnings. Weight loss and better healthier diet here I come.
