Take time, get yourself well and don't have any regrets. Getting well is your first priority.
42" jeans(25/01/2013) 40"(28/02/2013) 38"(20/03/2013) 36"(25/05/2013)
Down from 60" waist jeans since June 21st 2012.
Still keeping to my 26" jeans, but they are too tight for comfort. too many tasty things in the US, and over Xmas.
Onwards and Downwards! http://www.menu52.com/
