I got on the scales at work and oh dear! 70Kg that is wearing my very sexy steel toecapped safety boots and my Made to measure for a giant chiller suit plus my hard hat.
It is too much so I have to take action, next week when I finally start my 3 day week I am off to investigate the Slimming World group that meets in the nearest town. It is that or sew my mouth up!
