Weight Loss Challenge

This a picture of me on Jan 6th before I loose 1 ½ stone!

I’m in good company. Mark Price the managing director of Waitrose is shedding weight as well. See his blog He is also aiming for 1.5 stone but has added alternatives of 10kg and a waist reduction of 4″. I fear they are all as hard as each other.

So why should I change a shape of a lifetime or at least of the recent past and why has it got any relevance to this blog.I hoping my 86 year mother will join us for parts of the world trip perhaps even an ocean crossing. She has challenged me with I’m not coming unless you loose 1.5 stone. I tried to trick her with So you will come if I do loose the weight! But she held her ground to I’m not coming if the skipper is chubby”. I guess the good news is that I have to July to succeed.

Her is my mother, Barbara last September enjoying a helm to windward off the Oban on the West Coast of Scotland.Mum_at_the_Helm.jpg

So there we have it

    Glad you are tackling this issue before you leave. Here’s to a ‘light’ skipper. x
