'It's Christmas. I am standing in front of my mirror and looking at a man with a 40-inch waist and man boobs. I'm married to the love of my life who is gorgeous, I have two of the best kids I've ever met, a great home, brilliant friends and a dream career. Thing is, I want to be around long enough to enjoy what I've got and the way I'm heading, I won't be.
I don't plan to be on a diet for the rest of my life. I don't plan to deny myself the pleasure in life. I plan, for once, to be honest when I look in the mirror and to change my life for the better, for ever. Today's the day I stop making excuses.'
