I’m Shaun Milne.
For around 37 years, I did next to no exercise, enjoyed too many curries and drank far too much beer and wine.
As such I tipped the scales at 17 stone.
For all manner of reasons, not least the challenge itself, I wanted to lose a target weight of five stones (70lb or 31 kilos) over 12 months.
I managed four in year one, raising £1000 for charity to boot.
As a journalist, I will try my best to articulate these efforts as openly and honestly as I can, the lows as well as the highs.
And as one half of Two Fat Laddies, I promise to at least try my very best.
