Hi all, as anyone who has seen Stanley Kubrick's film, Full Metal Jacket will know, the title of this post is taken from one of the many epic lines spoken by R.Lee Ermey in his role as Gunnery Sergeant Hartmann.
Now although I'm not as slow as his worst recruit, Gomer Pyle, I do have something of a weight problem. I've been a 'porker' since I was a child and as I've got older, the problem hasn't improved any! I blame the alcohol - but as I've now given that up for the foreseeable future, I can't use that excuse any longer! LOL
So why have I come here? Well that's easy. I've always been a competitive animal and I like to set and achieve goals. My goal by coming here is firstly to achieve a regular, steady weight-loss with the aid and support of like-minded individuals and secondly, to be able to pass on any tips and tricks that I can, to others who may be struggling with their weight.
So there we are. And here I am.........
