I'm 6' 2" and I haven't weighed less than 14 st 7 since I was about 16 years old. If anyone says I am fat, I just sit on them.

Just stay away from the trans fats, and don't worry about it.

About 200lbs I'd say based on him indoors.

I lost 45 lbs a couple of years ago and in the past 6 months have managed to put 30 of that back on. I cut back on the hours I worked which includes a fair amount of exercise and seem to have reached that age where you have to eat less, much less.
So once our last lot of visitors have gone then it's back on the plan. Slimming World mostly with cycling and swimming.

I'm so overweight and unhealthy its not funny...at 5'8" i'm almost 220lbs (about 98kg)

I was way down to 80kg last year, but I changed jobs and piled it all back on

the problem is that I have very little time to do anything worthwhile on a diet or exercise, and I hate all the things i should be eating

anyone else work in the field and managed to lose weight and eat healthily?

Why is being in the field any different to anywhere else? I would say that, actually, it is easier. Your only temptation is when you go grocery shopping. Avoid buying shite then and you will avoid putting shite into your body.

That's quite a reduction, how did you do it?

Working away from home totally screws up eating patterns, especially if there are not palatable alternatives around.

What you need to do is to get yourself a girlfriend who's very health conscious food wise so that she shames you into eating healthfully or throws out your biscuits. Of course the reach of her influence has little impact when it comes to takeaways at work.

My mum flies over here with 2 suitcases. 1 has her clothes and stuff, the other is full of proper biscuits, proper chocolates, and as many Fat Rascals from Betty's Tea Room as she can fit in

So true, especially if you have 8 hours between ending and starting and no facilities to cook/store food, and eat most meals at airports....

Jammy bugger.

We get our xmas pud from Betty's, but for some reason they don't ship Fat Rascals internationally. Haven't had one for years now

I just weighed myself and I'm 225 lbs at 5'9", I was 5 lbs heavier a few weeks ago, but then I thought I weighed 220 and hadn't checked for months. Normally I'm 210 and got down to under 200 last year but put it back on. When I was young I weighed 175 all the time and did very heavy work and ate and drank whatever I wanted and my weight never varied more than a few pounds. I was 5' 10 1/2" tall then too, 5' 11 on a good day. :-(
