Week 110

3lb loss!

100 Pounds!!!

I've lost 7 stone 2lbs or 45.36kg - in other words:


I wasn't expecting to hit that target this week. I can only guess that last week was one of those funny abberations because I never lose 3lbs in one week, but it does translate as having lost 2lbs in the last 2 weeks, which makes much more sense.

110 weeks ago, on February 15th 2005, I was 19 stone 9lbs, or 275lbs. This morning I am 12 stone 7lbs, or 175lbs.

I want to celebrate with a big meal out for the whole family and a huge cake. Unfortunately, if I do that then next week I'll be 4lbs heavier again.

It could be a few weeks before I'm comfortably past this marker and am not likely to slip back under because of an abberation, but this is the first time I've hit this weight for something close to 20 years.

I think I am going to allow myself a brief *smug* moment.

Starting Weight: 19st 9lb - 275lbs
Current Weight: 12st 7lb - 175lbs
Body fat: 23.5%
Total Weight Loss: 100lbs

Holy crap!! Congratulations Kim, farkwad!! 100 pounds, well done sir, well done indeed! New photos must be arranged immediately.

Kim Ayres said...

Thanks FMC!

At the moment new photos would just show bags under my eyes from lousy sleep patterns, but maybe I should consider a new header bar based on those photos from Week 105...

For sure. Oh, you must feel terrific, no?

Kim Ayres said...

I want to run down the street and stop and tell everyone I meet, but of course to most people I don't look much different to how I did 6 months ago.

The people who would notice the most difference are all my old business contacts, but they're all back up in the central belt of Scotland and I don't see anything of them anymore.

Still, if I get under the 12 stone mark I think I'll take one of those photos where I'm standing in one of my old suits holding the waist of the trousers way out in front of me

WOW!!!! My heart leapt for you because I know how wonderful it must feel to meet such a memorable goal. I am literally bouncing in my office chair with happiness for you! Way to go, Kim!

Super multi-mega-mighty congratulations, Kim. That is awesome!!!

Kim Ayres said...

Thank you Sayre, Sir Semisolid, Victoria and Arlene - I appreciate the whoops of joy :)

Sir Carbfiend said...

Bloody Hell! That is absolutely fantastic, Kim. WOW. I think one of those cheesy before/after montages is a must!

Kim Ayres said...

Sir Carbfiend - I've changed the header bar so that it more or less is one of those cheesy before/ after montages

Mr and Mrs Fat said...

What a beautiful and wonderful accomplishment! Have a drink on us! 100 pounds is a lot of weight. Now comes the hard part...maintaining. It's mostly mental from here on out, but really easy to put back on.

Mr & Mrs Fat - Thank you!

After 2 years, I can't believe it's going to be any harder maintaining than losing. In fact it shouldn't make any difference. What I've been doing is eating healthily, which I will continue to do.

The weight goes back on for most people because diets (rather than lifestyle change) are temporary and don't address WHY we put the weight on in the first place. Consequently, once the target weight is reached, they revert to the eating patterns they had before and the weight goes back on, only quicker this time.
