    Hi Chris :)
    Isnt trying to lose weight a pain in the a***
    I would love to be one of those people that can eat anything and never gain, must be nice.
    I just can't seem to get motivated at all, i was sent to a dietician that was less than half my age :roll: iv been dieting longer than shes been breathing and there was nothing she could tell me that i didn't know already, total waste of everyone's time. but hey welcome, nice to meet you.
