Before and after

i woiuld say around 1 stone maybe a bit more

but you've got to keep in mind in the last year i have shot up in height, so it would of been more but due to the height gain its appears less and also the joining of a gym has also made me gain muscle thus reducing the overall weight loss Tongue

Just to wake this thread up (via the Restin Pulse Rate thread) - very inspiring pictures guys - nice one.

Personally, I dont weigh myself, as I know my lifestyle and "getting out riding" needs to be in place to make any drastic improvement.

Many people have commented on how much weight Ive lost - personally I dont notice and still feel the same size - although Im a 36" waist now, as opposed to 38" at the start of the year.

I feel WAY fitter though, which Im really enjoying - the ability to go on a ride without keeling over or seeing my lunch again is brilliant - I must NEVER forget what that felt like either.

I would say you have the right approach. Getting out and exercising is the best way to lose weight and its fun. Eating salad is not fun. Being hungry is not fun.  People's (women's) obsession with weight baffles me.

Personally I keep an eye on my weight because I have some spinal issues that are worsened by too much upper body weight. But I dont alter my diet and I still eat some rubbish. Im 13.5st now, and was 15st about 18 months ago. Regular exercise keeps me at roughly the right weight.

I think Tinc mentioned that he reckoned the wednesday night BBH ride burned nearly 2,000 calories.  Just that one ride every week would make a hell of a difference to anybodys health.

I have been so lazy lately. I used to have a regular routine of doing at least a short ride 5 days a week after work, which combined with eating healthily is how i lost all the weight, but apart from a short ride last night which i only really did to try and sort my front break out after changing the pads, i can't remember the last time i went out on my own, and i'm eating a fair bit of crap again. Luckily the Wed and Sun ride are helping me to maintain roughly the same weight, but i want to loose more. I don't seem to have the motivation i used to have  for riding on my own. Time to get back into that routine again after Afan me thinks!

Afan is a good "stepping stone" for me - hopefully it will give me a boost to push on with my weekly rides and hopefull see me in good standing for some better performance at the Winter Warmer races at Fowlmead.

That way I have a steady kick up the backside I need - there is one mega fat bloke inside me, just trying to get out!  :X

Im very pleased with my progress so far, had a little dip after the 24/12 where I didnt want to even look at my bike - but Im back on track now.

Fitness-wise Im 1000% better than when I started, its just now turning my now mild fitness into some power and endurance to burn the calories faster and easier.

If I look back to early 2008 or before, 1 lap of Bedge was an "epic" ride for me....

Could you not get motivated to train more until I can keep up with you on the Blean hill.  Tongue

It's nice of you to say so mate but i could definitely loose a bit more. Maybe "need" is not the word, more like "want". I wanna see a 6 pack when i look down instead of a slightly podgy 1 pack.

Loosing weights not going to give you a six pack, might make you look like victoria beckham.
