I haven't lost any weight for about four months although I believe I need to shed a good stone or so. I only know I haven't lost any weight in that time because Tuesday was the first time I stepped on the scales. That's how stressed I am, as in "Am I bovvered?"
I eat reasonably (and exercise a bit in short hard bursts) so I lost 62 lbs in a year and am more fit than I have been for at least 15 years. And, I am not getting the colds and other bugs I used to suffer from, a lot. Lastly, I do not get the hunger shakes if I'm late having a meal.
Why use a sledge hammer to crack a nut when a steam roller is even more effective, and, is fun to drive.
