Thanks everyone for your comments. I've always been overweight and realised that if I didn't act soon I may not be around to see my kids grow up.
That is my daughter in the pic, she's just turned 3.
In regards to the stars, don't really know what it is, I just liked the idea. I originally had just one, then that turned into 4. I will eventually add a fair bit more detail to that arm.
My wife has lost 35kg, she has about 9kg to go.
