    I once heard a radio sketch concerning an impersonation of Russell Harty (remember him?) by Tim Brooke-Taylor. It went something like this (the Lancashire accent helps, and remember Russell couldn't pronounce Rs):

    "On tonight's fabulous pwogwamme we were hoping to have Miss Diane Warwick and Mr Edward Woodward. But we heard that Miss Warwick couldn't come, but we were still hoping that Edward Woodwardwould".

    I suppose you had to be there ...

Had a weigh in today and gone from 250.6lbs Jan 16th to 243.2lbs today. So, lost 7.4lbs in 10 days. Very happy with that. Dinner this evening was sausages, fried leeks and roasted parsnips !

    That's a great loss! king

    Well otherwise he'd be E-war Woo-war which doesn't have the same gravity...

    Sorry, I'll get my coat.

    No time for a workout today but had ridiculous lunch of carrot soup ( from Waitrose ) for lunch. I feel this is punishment enough for not getting in the gym ! Getting to the end of Dry January and honestly not missed beer. It's surprising how things you sometimes feel you can't do without occasionally turn out to be just bad habits.

    I miss beer too but have recently found I can tolerate one now and then. How far does a single beer take you?

    Right. So.

    Wine on the other hand is very easy on my glucose level, particularly so if it is very dry.

    But then I low carb so have no weight problem. Seriously, did someone mention parsnip? I'd rather have some chocolate.

    Yes, I may give wine a try and see if this has any affect on BG levels. As for chocolate, it's something I eat rarely but tolerate quite well surprisingly.

    Not posted here for a while so thought I'd better update. I'm still heavier than I'd like ( approx 244lbs ), however, my fitness has improved. I can sustain 2 hrs of cardio no problem and trying to improve. Until now, my exercise of choice has always been indoor rower but I now spend a lot of time cycling. I love the outdoors and the time goes quicker. One thing I do try to get done on the rower is 20mins interval training. I recently saw on TV, a programme about fat, saying after much scientific evidence, an ideal workout is 2mins hard cardio followed by 1mins rest. Do this 7 times. It's a 20min workout but the benefits last for 24hrs, so the scientists say. My wife also does this same routine and swears by it.

    Thanks for the update Mo ...

    I think with the warmer weather and longer evenings it can make excersing that little bit easier. The majority of people I speak to love the fact that the warmer weather does allow better opportunities to get out and about. That may be for a walk, for a cycle ride, for a run ... even doing some gardening, it all helps. Perhaps we should make the month of May our 'improved movement' month? We should all move that little bit more Exclamation

    All the best Jan
