As is the tradition every New Year, the resolutions of getting in shape are often muttered and rarely followed through. 

I know I enjoy lifting weights, and now Crossfit (yup, turned into a Crossfit wanker, didn't I?), but my comedy pal Andy Fury has put his experiences into words. 

Over the past 18 months, Andy has managed to shed a whopping 9 stone. That's right, 9 stone! In that same time, I've put on 3 stone!

Loosing weight and getting fit is difficult. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. It can be difficult to start and demoralising when you don't see results instantly. Thankfully Andy has documented his journey and it's full of great advice on how he managed to start his journey.

The beauty of the whole piece is that its a 'normal bloke' talking about weight loss and fitness rather a fitness industry expert who's ripped to fuck and do handstand push ups. So, if you're looking for a bit of inspiration, head on over to www.notfatnow.wordpress.com and have a read of what Andy's producing. It really is great content.
