Wow. A new man. :shock: That must have been some wake up call.

Good discipline Steve.

being in hospital in the acute cardiac unit and being asked to sign a permission sheet to be put into an induced coma was the tipping point Chris :D

That maybe so (and he was fast enough to start with) but he'll have to learn how to set up suspension properly now!
No more of this, and I quote, "eat more pies".

well now at 6.5 stone lost :)

main target is 15st 10lbs got about 1.5stone or so to go. Reason for the initial target is it takes me from the title of "obese" (yuck) to merely "overweight"

At that point I'll decide if I want to stay there or carry on to about 13.5 stone
