Merry Xmas everyone, hope you are all well fed, fat and smiling!

A little something from me…

“I’d give up chocolate, but I’m no quitter!”

“When the going gets tough…the tough eat chocolate!”

So don’t punish yourselves if you’ve had that extra piece of cake you shouldn’t have, or if you have been out stuffing yourselves stupid… be merry, it’s Xmas! After all, you have the rest of the year to lose all those extra kilos you have piled over a few weeks and then over the next Xmas put them all on again and perhaps a few more! It’s a vicious circle. You can’t avoid it. So, enjoy it!

Merry Xmas.
