    Yeah, you see, it's the moderation thing. Open a packet of JC's and I'll eat the lot. In one go. I'm terrible for sweet things.

    Keep going like I am and I'll have more chins than a Chinese 'phone book.

    /takes a bow/

    Thankyou thankyou.

    I think it's when you hit your 30s and start to slow down it catches up with you on the quiet. Best to spot it early gentlemen and do something about it.

    If you see someone jogging down the road holding a GBA that'll be me ;-)

    From Red Dwarf and sampled by Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine:-

    "When your younger you can eat what you like, drink what you like and still climb into your 26 inch waist trousers and zip them closed. Then you reach that age, 24 / 25, your muscles give up they wave a little white flag and then without any warning at all, your suddenly a fat bastard."

    Cmon Chubby people, put down your full milk Latte Coffee, chocolate and smokes and have water instead.

    Then go home knackered without any energy. Just like me!

    One good thing I've noticed - advent callenders now go all the way to New Year's eve. That's six more chocolates.

    Is that all!!!
    God, I weigh about 13 and a half stone. 'Spose I'm a bit taller than you though...don't reckon those prize Jaffa Cakes helped much though!!

    Don't worry too much about your weight, but try and keep up the exercise - that's my advice.
    :o)

    Santa does exist

    Bit rich of a Reverend to scientifically dispute the existence of Santa.

    13 and a half stone is about 85 kilos I think.
    Not sure about Little Nem though.

    I'm back to 36 around the waist - but two years ago went trekking in Nepal and was ground down to a loose waistbanded 32. If it wasn't for the three weeks of hell, bad diet and poohing into a hole I'd do it again and get my wardrobe back.

    The rumour is you loose weight at uni due to not eating properly. Well i went to uni with a 24" waist, a mere 8 stone (i'm 5'10"), and put on a stone per year! One non impressed student. Been a tax payer for 1 1/2 years now and slowly regaining my figure.

    I agree with Nem tho, open a packet of something and you can't just have a few, i swear once they're opened, snacks keep shouting to be eaten until they're all gone. I'm quite good at not buying or opening goodies, but have to finish them off when they're open. I need a hobby to keep my hands occupied. I hate smoke so smokings out.

    :D How appropriate

    All right when in front of one of the consoles or p.c., but not practical otherwise - Theres always the GBA, but i don't take it with me everywhere.

    Easily the quickest way of losing weight is being seriously ill! I had liver problems about 8 years ago for about 6 months, couldn't eat much, had seriously bad shivers at night occasionally and ended up taking a hell of a lot of time off sick, the doctors didn't know what was causing it. I had huge amounts of blood tests for this and that, they thought it could have been a form of hepatitis, then suddenly it just disappeared. I lost more than a third of my body weight! Admittedly I was a fat bastard beforehand and unfortunately I've put a fair amount back on, although it's coming down again since I've put a bit of effort into it.

    Not a pleasant thing to happen to you and I've never been a heavy drinker so that couldn't have caused it. I will say one thing it taught me though, no matter who you are if your liver starts playing up and it doesn't kill you it will feel like it's going to! Look after your liver!

    I've often thought that if I could create an appetite suppressant half as good as that I'd be the richest person in existence in 6 months! :-)

    Hey Whizzo, I had something similar a few years back, and after weeks of visits to different doctors someone found out it was the "Kissing disease" (aka Mononucleose). Many people have this as a kid, and it's pretty harmless then, like a flu, but the later in your life you get it, the worse it becomes. Most doctors - obviously - have difficulties in diagnosing (is that a word?) it, and the symptoms are a swollen liver, blood picture similar to leukemia, etc. etc. There was a professional football player in Germany who had this a few years back, and he never fully recovered (at least his not in the first league anymore).

    Maybe you had this too?

    God, talking about diseases, we're really getting old now...

    Perhaps, I've no idea and the doctors were as confused as I was. I glad it eventually disappeared and haven't suffered from anything more serious than a bad cold since!

    I do occasionally look at the pair of size 32" waist jeans I had back then, which I had to wear a belt or they slipped off and just wish I could wear them again! :-)

    I'm glad I can talk about at times it felt like I was going to be around to get much older! :-O

    I am currently trying to justify buying the other half Dance Dance Revolution and one of those dance mat things as a compromise to "playing less games, getting fitter"

    D'ya think she'll buy it?

    For some reason, this thread seems to have turned into 'Errol's weight Watchers Thread' or something. lol.

    The thing is with Christmas after the worries about spending too much or getting the right presents the thing on most people's minds tends to drift to either consuming too much food or New Year's resolutions about trying to lose weight... :-)

    One of the Dance Dance coin-ops had a calorie meter on screen. I'm not sure if that version's available for PSOne. Maybe worth a try?

    You jest!!!

    Spose I could shell out for one of those huge Aero Cycle arcade jobbies...

    Or buy an old version of Street Fighter 1 (the original with those huge panels you had to break your hands on to get the game to work - always knackered me out!)

    Yeah I bought my nieces a DDR pack and the game had a calorie counter. My sister-in-law was well pleased with it.
