Hi all :smile:

I'm currently on a journey to lose somewhere in the region of 110-140lbs (I'll go to the former and see where I am at that point) and I've just reached another milestone of 6 stone lost! This has been in the last 8 and a bit months.

I've been slowed down a lot by a lot of things like BBQs and group meals over the last few months, but I've finally got a handle on all of that to keep the train moving along. My next target is the big 100lbs, which I'm hoping to knock out before I hit the one-year mark in November!

Hope you're all having a good day :smiley:

    Great job! Can you share your way of eating? What are your macros in MFP and how many meals per day?

    I need the inspiration.

    Thanks, and well done!

    Dude you look amazing, what a transformation! I started at 390lb and am down 40lb in four months, hoping I can carry on and try and get a result anywhere near what you've achieved!

    Thanks very much :)

    Honestly, my way of eating is to generally be clean, but have stuff like kit kats to satiate my sweet tooth since they are like 104kcal. I'm not strict on macros, but I'll just actively try to maximise the protein element of my calories each day. I'm currently on 1780kcal a day which is a challenge, but I'm managing.

    That's so amazing. It's such a huge step to get going when you are of that kind of size, so you've done amazingly already. I hope you are already feeling the benefit of what you've accomplished because it'll only get better from here, everything in your life will improve as you go!

    This is totally inspiring. Well done on what you've lost so far. Keep up the hard work. You'll be at goal before you know it. It seems like such a long journey when we're just starting out but time flies really and as long as you keep to your agenda you'll end up where you want to be.

    Brilliant work, that’s a fantastic transformation and I like the tips - I’m off to look up air fryers!

    I've found the best value ones are the Gourmia ones that CostCo sell if that's available to you
