Week 91

1.6lb loss!

Hey hey hey! We're cruising! All that resistance to the cravings is paying off again. 2 weeks weight loss in a row and I am now definitely under the 13 stone mark!

I'm now only 5.6lbs away from the 100lb loss. I think it's unlikely I'll reach it before the gluttenous season arrives, and if I do, I won't stay there for long, so it could be well into next year before I confidently cross that barrier. But the better I do this side of Feastmas, the less far I'll have to travel on the other side.

Feeling good.

And...

Statistical Significance:
I was doing a rough calculation the other day when I suddenly realised that when I crossed the line of losing more than 91.6lbs (4 weeks ago), I had actually lost 1/3 or my original bodyweight.

I am now 2/3 of the man I used to be!


Starting Weight: 19st 9lb – 275lbs
Current Weight: 12st 12.6lb – 180.6lbs
Body fat: 24.5%
Total Weight Loss: 94.4lbs

Yahoo! You're on track again! Feels good, doesn't it?

I went to church yesterday and wore a top that had felt like sausage casing the last time I wore it. Yesterday, it just felt like a shirt, not some restrictive device.

I sorted out a couple more shirts that are far too big to go to the charity shop today. Someone with a 50" chest is going to be happy to find something to fit

Well done Kim, eeek, so close now.

Wow 1/3 of your bodyweight is amazing! I have lost 1/4 of mine. You are so close! I am so impressed with how far you have come.

Thanks FMC & TC for your support.

I may be close to the 100lb mark, but it doesn't actually level out there, as I'd still be about a stone overweight. However, whether I ever reach the British hundredweight of 112lbs or not, I can't knock the achievement if I get beyond the 100lb mark

That is excellent, Kim. And well deserved. I also very much like your attitude about Feastmas. It sounds like you're being very reasonable with yourself. Also very practical. By allowing yourself to indulge, you're maintaining control of the process. That's a model that I'll be trying to emulate.

Thanks Arlene. I'll probably post more about how I'm going to try to not go too crazy over Feastmas nearer the event.

Last year started well enough but then descended and proved tricky to turn around. I'd rather not go that far again this year
