Opening Statement

Having met both Sandra and Trevor I am 100% sure that this is the way forward for me. My goal is to get my weight down to 13 stone and then take stock to see if that's the correct weight or if I need to lose a bit more.

This seems daunting to me having never lost this amount of weight before, Sandra and Trevor are very confidant that I can do this and I am so thankful to have that support behind me. I am sure that there will be more good days than bad days and when I feel weak I will plug in my Ipod and listen to Trevor to get me back on track.

I will update this blog weekly to update my progress as this will I hope give me a tool to make sure that I stay on track and work towards my goal.

Heres to the new ex foodie slave may he be slim, healthy and happy forever after.
