Easter 2013. About 260lbs, didn't like to get on the scales back then. Always thought I could carry a bit of weight as I'm 6 foot tall. Camera doesn't lie though, I need to shift some timber.

ParkRun 15 June 2013, 240lbs

Heading in the right direction.

Simply logging everything I eat, making better choices about my food and moving more is making a big difference.

New gym is opening 5 minutes walk from where we live so starting next week I'll be learning to lift heavy things. :-)

    Still doing Parkrun every Saturday morning.
    Weight stable but times improving.

    Next target for me is to break 30 mins for my 5k.

    Another NSV milestone for me today.

    I've been doing Stronglifts 5x5 for a couple of months now.

    Today I did my first set of 100kg deadlifts.

    Lifting heavy things is good. :-)

    Still a work in progress.
    5K pb down from 39 mins to 31.

    Deadlift 110kg
    Squat 100kg
    Bench 55kg

    All still with a smile.

    Parkrun and stronglifts are keeping me happy. :-)
