    well, there you go...last night I was officially weighed in and had broken the 16 stone barrier, I am 15st 10lbs. A total loss of 10st 4lbs...4lbs more than I planned to do 2 years ago when I decided I was going to loose weight!

    I am happy...over the moon really! My BMI is now down to 29, which is fantastic news as it means I'm only overweight and not obese!!!!!

    But...I'm still chubby! I've still got moobs, still got a gut and still got fat thighs!

    I've updated my ticker now to keep going for another 2 14stone is the next target!

    hard to believe that when I joined this forum I was nearly 21stone!

    ColinJ It's a puzzle ...

    Well done! :bravo:

    You are about the same size as me now.

    14 stone is a good intermediate target and one I share with you.

    When I was last 14 stone, I was pretty fit but I still had about 20 pounds of excess fat on me so I'm pretty sure that when I/you get there, the target will get revised down again to more like 12.5 stone.

    Wow, well done mate. You must be finding the hills easier now, you should have tried cycling up the Brickhills before and after :smile:

    I need to get my motivation sorted to keep my diet strict, i lose a few pounds and then slack off and put it back on. :whistle:

    Thanks for all the support guys! It was more of a "grr, I'm not there yet" kinda post but heyho...I'll take the adoration where I can! :tongue:

    Good luck to those who are also on this road...its a hard one and even now it still takes a lot of hardwork and willpower to see it done!

    I'll try and sort out some kind of comparison...been meaning to do it for myself anyway!

  15. I hope the next bit of weight loss that you achieve will help you get rid of the bits you mention, but i've been told the worse of your fat around your organs is the first to go - so that is the best news.
