This post is inspired by BenBlyth……
last year he left a comment asking or suggesting I make a post on weight loss, goals, targets , revisions etc.
I feel I am now in a place to do that.
So, at 39 stone 13 Pounds I sat down with my surgeon and we talked numbers, we talked 8XL Tops, 68″ waist, then we talked about what would be realistic if I had the surgery.
He said 22 stone, 3XL, 46″ waist – ISH
I didn’t have that operation, those numbers came, without a Gastric Bypass, without pills but with good old fashion hard work.
Once I was at 22 Stone, I thought, I don’t feel the need to stop, I am not going to change what I am doing, and set myself the new target of 20 stone, less than 2 months later, I was there, at 20 stone, so I did the same and set myself 18 stone, then 16 stone, it took longer to get to each of my new goals but I achieved them all.
Then one day I said right 14 stone and I am done on my journey of weight loss and onto maintenance, I didn’t change anything apart from rode a few extra miles a day and a little faster, something I had been doing since I started anyway because I love it so much.
I stand here today at 14 stone, Size 34 waist, M/Large tops , my weight goes from 13 stone 12 pounds to 14 stone 2 pounds , but I am happy where I am, if my body wants to lose more then fine, but I am happy with the amount I ride and eat for it not to be a bind and I feel that is the best way to do it, don’t starve or restrict yourself , you will get bored and then binge then pile it back on.
Just think of what I could achieve if only I could get that operation to remove my skin !!!!
