Re: 2016 weight loss thread

Thanks Zoot. It's helped by not having to work!! Eating well and healthy. Time to row. I am going into a flat patch now as I prepare to fly home to UK for the summer. Going through Las Vegas for a few days. Lost Wages and weight gain. Hard to be good there. Hoping that I don't succumb to much. Chris

On that birth date you should be 66 or have i get it wrong. It does not detract from your fantastic result. :D :...
