My name is Iain Pope and I am fat.
I am married with a beautiful wife and I have two stunning children and I work as a journalist in Glasgow, Scotland.
I commute every day from my home in Edinburgh to Glasgow.
I have not weighed myself yet for this project but I imagine I must be between 20 and 21 stone (280 – 294 lbs or 127 to 133 kilos).
Update: January 1 2011 I weighed in at 20 stone 11lb (291lb)
I intend to lose five stone (70lb or 31 kilos) throughout the course of 2011 (UPDATE: And 2012)
I pledge that I will record every step of my success or failure along the way.
