I started my diet this week after weighing myself. I was 17st and Iím only 5ft8. Shocking stuff, but Iím sure that we can inspire each other to better things.

Came out the supermarket last week to discover the back of our car scraped. No acknowledgement from the guilty party so either going to have to get it attended to ourselves or claim it on insurance. It's pretty minor paint scrapes so not sure if it's worth an insurance claim. Any recommendations? I...
