  • John Milne, 6 March 1974 - 2 October 2011
    on Feb 4, 2014
    I have been putting off writing this for so long, but it has to be done. I was right to be worried about John. He died in October 2011, two months after the previous post was written, following an infection. I could not face writing this at the...
  • Fat tax...again? Yawn.
    on Aug 26, 2011 in fat tax
    This old chestnut is on the bbc news. AGAIN. Somebody apparently wants this to happen, very much, cos it keeps on coming back. Who I wonder? Anyway, long time no post, but lots of news. I'm still losing, but John isn't. I'm worried about him.Publishe...
  • Weigh-in progressJust a quick update on our progress - we weighed ourselves again first thing. My weight is still the same as it was last time I tracked it on, that is 14 st 2lb. So I lost four pounds from evening to morning. It makes sense that I wo...
  • Lost and foundWell, John said we might be off-radar for a while and I certainly have been. For me, the last four months have been spent either working on the house, working at my day job, or sleeping. I weighed myself tonight, and I'm four pounds heavier than I wa...

  • In the Gripper LunchtimeI've slipped back into bad habits in the last couple of weeks. No, not two-kebabs-a-night-and-a-crate-of-Coke habits, thankfully – but things are beginning to worry me nontheless.In short: it's lunchtime. How do YOU cope with it? I have breakfas...
  • Light relief
    on Jan 4, 2011
    First of all, we’re relieved to find that we have not put any weight on over Christmas – I’ve lost two pounds and John has stayed steady – no mean feat considering he’s battling with water retention. He went to the opticians yesterday and a...
  • The Twelve Weighs of ChristmasMy weightloss has hit a snag these last few weeks... fluid retention. Despite adhering to the diet, I gained four pounds two weeks ago, lost three and a half pounds last week, and then gained another five when I was weighed at Weightwatchers yesterda...
  • The Fat Tax and what I think of it...A good couple of weeks since we were on Panorama, I thought it was about time I posted how I felt about the whole thing. It's still a 'live' issue - yesterday the Independent led on the news that the UK government are veering away from taxes and pric...
