LOL, I know! Well, my big motivating factor now is the tour. I want to look all skinny and trim for Larry you know.

I LOVE carbs, LM. I think I seriously become a bitch if I don't have any for long periods of time, lol. Talk about a carb whore.

My big motivating factor is my health. The odds are not stacked in my favour in regards to health. My parents both have heart problems, my Grandad (dad's dad) died of a heartattack at 47. My Granny (dad's mum) has heart problems and my Mum's mum died of a heartattack but I remember that when she was alive she was always in and ourt of hospital with heart complaints, she used to live with us until I was about 5 and then she went to live with my aunt who is a doctor and could get her oxygen and injections she needed. My sister is a diabetic so I have an increased chance of developing that. She isn't even overweight, she's close to being underweight and it's usually overweight people who get it. On my Mum's side of the family there have been a lot of her aunts and cousins who have had ovarian cancer. Even my Mum said to me last night that my dad's heart condition is hereditary and we are at rick of getting it and I can't control that. So the scary reality is I could have a heartattack in my 40's like my Dad and Grandad and if I was more fit that could only be better for my heart. I got really scared last year watching obese people getting ill on television and decided I had to do something. And I'm only overweight, there are a lot of people in Britiain who are in the obese/ morbidly obese weight range. That cannot be good for your body.

I also think I would be happier if I was thinner, I got overweight due to being bullied at school and then because I was unhappy with what I looked like I didn't try and change it. Vicious cycle. I have this really bad idea that if I was thinner people might like me more but I think if I lost weight I'd have more confidence and would be happier chatting to people instead of getting quite shy.

Oh, wow, LM. That sucks, I'm sorry.

I guess a lot of why I'm doing it too is that I've got a family history of helath problems as well. My Dad has diabetes and heart problems, my Mom's Dad had diabetes too, and there's breast cancer on both sides of the family. My parents have always been a little overweight, and I need to get in shape now before I end up with some of the problems that has plagued our family.

You too, April

Health problems are not fun but I guess it's not something you can't control so you just have to make the most of life. This is why I am going to be such a good traveller this year and I will not think too much about the fliying aspect. I've been putting off going away for so long becuase I'm anxious getting on a plane but I'm missing out doing that.

Thanks Kim.

I'm away now but I might be back before I go out this evening. It's not even 3 yet.
