Today was going to be the day that I started to lose weight. Well, I went for a run in the park with Victoria. I thought that would do the trick, but it nearly killed me. She kept looking back and telling me to step on it. It's no good. I've left it too late. Once you're over 30, you've missed the boat. I'm just going to get fat and enjoy it. Now, where are those chocolates that I threw away.
