It's great to know that this series of posts is helping readers... here are some of the things they've told me so far...

Your flow of emails has definitely kept me focused than I would have been normally. I have enjoyed my food and drink these past few days but have imbibed a lot less than other years and have kept my water intake up. The net result (so far) is I don’t feel bloated and lardy like I normally do over Christmas time and I’ve actually said no to food on offer - that’s unheard of for me! There are definitely some good habits beginning to be formed here, so a big thank you for giving me the kick up the bum I needed
Tony, thanks so much for the flow of emails, which have helped to shape my thoughts for 2016. I have experienced the usual ‘loss of grip’ over a couple of days of Christmas - and have probably gained a couple of kg! - but am greatly looking forward to the process of losing it - and WAY EXCEEDING where I’ve got to before. The process is as enjoyable as the end result for me.
Thanks for all your emails Tony, really appreciated and very informative
Your gift is massive to me. Thank you for sharing it and for helping me.
I’ll be taking some of what worked for you and trying it with others including myself
Tony, I just thought I would let you know I am really enjoying reading your blog! I’m looking at making some changes myself so it is really helping me along and really encouraging me to get back in to the gym and eat better. Well done, keep it up!
Thanks for the inspiration! I’m doing this. And your blog is VERY helpful!
Your daily blog is really inspiring me to look at my life properly. Thank you so much xx
eeeek, I have not run for years and by years I mean at least 20, however I have just signed up to a beginners running course 0 to 5km in 8 weeks. I literally cannot even run 100 yards at the moment so if I manage to acheive this I will be so darn proud!!
I think these posts have already had some kind of affect on me as last night [NYE] I only drank 1 beer and 1 glass of bubbles. Drank water the rest of the time. That is unheard of for me, but I didn’t even realise it at the time. Wasn’t a conscious decision to not drink much. Something has shifted mentally inside me I think...
