since i significantly reduced my alcohol from what i would call moderate (9 months ago) to what i would now call very little, ive finally lost the last kilo off my frame to get pretty much to the weight I feel is right for me. I put it down to not just the calories in the drink but mainly to being able to "no" to the goodnight biscuit (or four)

Got something to say?
