An update

I realise it's been a while since I updated this progress - but hopefully you can see from the chart above that I've not been slacking where the diet and exercise is concerned.

This weekend for the first time my new (official) Wii Fit board actually gave me a weight of 16st dead on (so I went out and had several MacDonalds to celebrate - only joking!)

To be fair - I think I've still got a ways to go and a few more pounds to lose - the scales that I'm using at the GP's came up a few pounds heavier than my Wii Fit and plus I don't want to be borderline on the day and risk not being able to jump so with just under five weeks to go it's still all guns blazing coming in to the half way point.

We had some friends round yesterday who I haven't seen since before starting this new regime and they were both quick to comment on how different I look and how much weight I appeared to have lost (which was nice - thanks Ant & Julie), when you and the closest ones to you, see you every day it's hard to notice the little incremental changes - but they ARE happening (just ask my Wii Fit board).

Anyway as you can see - I've got the official jump donation link all set up and so far pledges from family and friends mean I'm almost half way there (and there's still some family and friends I haven't got to yet - but don't worry I will be SOON!) - this is great news, but it COULD be better.  So please dig deep and put your hands in your pockets and click either of the donate links above!

PS. Don't forget - Duncan Bannatyne has promised to double all donations paid in via the BMyCharity link above (all money I collect directly will also be paid in via that link so every penny counts double!)
