The diet starts NOW

I have seen my sisters-in-law shed the pounds over recent weeks (I hope they don't mind me mentioning) as they are both going to Slimming World sessions. I'm feeling a little shamed by my expanding waistline particularly against theirs reducing....

So I am going back to Weight Watchers starting today. I have all the kit, I am signed up on the Internet site already (have been for ages) and I'm really going to try hard. I've don't it before, I can do it again.
