    Default My fatty bastardo journey thus far

    April 2013
    Age: 36
    Weight: 109.2kg (over 17 stone)
    Height: 5' 8"
    Trouser waist: 40"
    Shirt: 17.5"

    Got fed up of looking like a lard ass in various family photos. I have a stocky-rugby player type build but a constant stream of crap foods, deserts every day, crisps, donuts, etc did damage over a long time/years. Plus I hated how my tucked-in shirt would constantly work it's way out of the front of my trousers/jeans. I was in denial but it was obviously due to my flabby tummy pushing it out. :-(
    (I hardly ever drink booze by the way. The damage is pure food based)

    August was coming and I had Best-Man duties to fulfil for my bro in-law.

    Enough was enough...

    So to cut a long story short I did not join a gym but I did:

    Cut ALL bad foods out. No sugar, bread, cheese, crisps, chips, fatty stuff, ready meals, takeaways etc.

    Breakfast has and now consists of a banana with either 2x shredded wheat, shreddies, or porridge. Skimmed milk only.

    I drink around 2.5 litres of water per day.

    Have one multivitamin pill every day.

    Lunch consists of fruit and a low fat sandwich (brown bread with tuna or lean ham). Plenty of water to keep me full.

    Dinner is baked chicken or fish with fresh veg and a few potatoes or a small pile of rice.

    My favourite meal at the moment is some fancy Thai instant noodles, chop in a whole green pepper, small chilli, some prawns, pak choi, break an egg in there. Garnish with spring onion - basically a ramen dish.

    Anyway, I looked much better on the wedding day and here are my stats to date:


    April 2013: 109.2kg

    May 2013: 103.9kg

    June 2013: 96.8kg

    July 2013: 93.6kg

    August 2013: 92.2kg

    Sept 2013: 90.3kg (Just over 14 stone)
    Waist: 36"
    Shirt: 16"

    It's been difficult sticking to the diet (5 months) but obviously worth it in the end. I've managed to enjoy and keep my mindset on a new healthy diet and intend to lose a little bit more fat and weight. Then it's gym time to tone and build muscle. Like I said, I am fortunate enough to have a stocky/strong build so should look good when I eventually hit the gym (last time back in 2000!). It's a bitch having to spend money on new clothes though! Nice but expensive!

    Well done mate that's really good. You'll see a significant difference when you hit the gym. Sticking to that diet for 5 months has clearly paid dividends for you!

    I hope I too after 5 months can come back and show off my weight loss. Fingers crossed!

    Daring enough to post any pictures?

    Well done mate, bet you were beaming when you were able to go a few sizes lower in the wedding suit!

    id do something about the face first mate, its a bit square
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    Yes thanks - it felt great trying on the suit and getting a smaller size for a change. Quite a mind fuck but a good one I suppose!
