    Ha! Glad it's not just me then! I weighed myself on my larder scales the other day and came in at 14.5 stone.....that's about a stone in the past year (sadly I don't have the excuse of quitting smoking).......getting married in May so really ought to try and shift a bit, but I just love food to much!
    Opinions are like arseholes....... we all have them, and most of them stink

    I feel really bad for you blokes. I'm 11.5 stone and eat whatever I feel like, whenever I feel like it. In fact I just fancy another Turkey and stuffing bap to go with my dark ale. Mmmmm...

    I was the same as you simon, I am a fit bloke, was when a smoker, up until about a year ago I was 13stone 8lbs, I would take anybody on in a eating competition if there was one, I could and still can eat an obseen amount of food but since I stopped smoking something has changed, being 47 now my body probaly cant cope with what I can eat and I am not working it off like I use too, oh well I will have to go on my first ever diet

    New years resolution for me again, must try harder to stop smoking. Been 11 1/2 stone all my days but since going offshore a few years back settled at 14 stone. Good luck to all attempting this (almost impossible task)

    You heavy rascals !
    I am 6 foot and less than 10 stone fresh out of the bath.
    I am 80 now and eat what I fancy , had duck with peach and orange stuffing today. Will finish it off tomorrow, a nice change from chicken and turkey which I seem to eat all year round. I am having a large Grouse at the moment with boiling water, four spoons of sugar and two painkillers before I go off to bed.
    I have never smoked, unfortunately I have Glaucoma and am slowly going blind. A cure cannot be bought for this.

    Your right it certainly isn't easy
    I have not owned a set of scales since 1992, also always been over weight for my 5'8", but never worried overmuch.
    I thought I weighed about 16 and a bit stone when I went into hospital for surgery last may, and when they asked my weight
    that is what I told them, immediately got marched to the scales, 17stone 12 pounds
    Before being discharged and having been told I had bladder cancer the registrar said, you need to give up smoking in the long
    run, but far more important, lose weight or the cancer will never get a chance to kill you
    Bearing in mind I am older than my father was before he dies of a heart attack, and older than his father was before a major
    heart attack, I have done my best to lose some.
    It really isn't easy, and when you live alone and cook for yourself it is even harder, I still don't own a set of scales, but do weigh myself every couple of weeks.
    A month ago I was down to 15st 5lb, a week ago still 15st 4lb, my target now is to not go over 15st 8lb until the warmer weather is here, and
    to try for 12 stone by end of 2014.
    Not sure I'll get there, but I will try
