Stand Up And Finish What You Started

10 06 2010

My road is and has been  a VERY long one, but I am now around 4/5 stone away from my “Total” Goal and as such I wanted to take a quick look at where I have come from.

at over 550lbs this is where I started:


At around 400lbs this was the last time I took a vacation:

Proof, it it were needed how long my road is, after losing 150lbs I still looked this bad.

and finally, after my vacation last week I am now around 290lbs, I am getting there, but I can’t ever forget where I came from !

Getting There !

My next goal is to have lost another 2.5-3 stone by Dec 31st this year, if I do that then I am in touching distance !!!!

Wish me luck !

I’m guessing you have a lot of excess skin, hence your high weight still. Do you have any operations planned to remove it?

Yup your right, I have been told I have between 4 and 5 stone (70 lbs) of skin, I am going thorough the motions with the NHS (will take a long long time) to get it removed, it seems like it might just happen too.

Fantastic achievement mate; how long has that taken? I did 11 miles on Sunday; not bad for a few weeks in the saddle. I will be commuting to work next week for the first time so I am quite looking forward to that. If I can make my commute three times a week to start off hopefully I can build up
to five by the time I go back to work after the summer. Fingers crossed.

Thanks Mate

I have been cycling for 2 years in July, 11 miles is good mate, well done, keep it up and you will be commuting every day without an issue

keep us updated mate
