Week 261

0.8lb loss!

I'm very pleased with that, although somewhat surprised as there have been a few little extras this week.

However, for anyone who doesn't know, one of the greatest achievements in the world of bloggers dealing with health and weight issues has been Kepa, or Fat Lazy Guy, reaching his target of being under 100kg, or 220lbs.

What makes this such an astonishing success story is 3 years ago he weighed over 500lbs.

And what makes this so special for me is we've been exchanging blog comments since he started. If you like, I knew him back in his days of struggle and massive self-esteem issues, long before the bold and confident guy he is today.

So this isn't about some distant person who must be superhuman and I couldn't relate to. This is very real.

Here's a wee video he made charting his success


It almost brings a tear to my eye

Here's a link to his post

Starting Weight: 19st 9lb - 275lbs
Current Weight: 13st 4lb - 186lbs
Body fat: 26.2%
Total Weight Loss: 89lbs

It did bring a tear (or several) to my eye. Kepa is indeed a wonderful inspiration to us all!
