Week 9 - RESULTS

Week 9 results are in, let's see how I did!

STARTING WEIGHT:   264.6 lbs

ENDING WEIGHT:  262.3 lbs

WEIGHT LOSS:  2.3 lbs

I was actually really pleased with this result. As I mentioned in my previous post, I think last week's estimated loss of 0.6 lbs was wrong, as my weight shot up by 3 lbs the following day. I suspect I actually gained weight during my weekend at home, so this week I've had to lose all that gain to show another loss here. Dropping 2.3 lbs this week means I've actually lost about 5.5 lbs in the last 6 days, which is pretty epic if you ask me!

I'm also now more than a third of the way there! Thinking about it like that puts my achievement into perspective, but it also highlights the fact that I've still got two thirds of my target still to lose.

I'm really looking forward to the next few weeks too. If I drop another couple of pounds, I'll have reached my 18.5 stone target, which I'm very excited about. A few more pounds after that, and I'll be in the 240's, which I don't think I've seen on a scale in years. And just a few more pounds after that, and I'll be half-way there! If I needed any more motivation to keep up my exercise regime (and I don't), this would be it!

Now, as last Thursday was the 21st, that marked the two-month milestone of my program. As such, after my usual tally below, I will post up this week's photos with the photos from Day 1, so we can have a little comparison!


 Still not a massive difference from the front view, but I think the area under my arms is narrower, and perhaps the bulges at the side are slowly receding!

Much clearer progress from this view! It's strange, looking at my new photo in isolation, I still felt like my belly was sticking out ridiculously far. Comparing it to the old photo though, it looks great! I've also noticed that its harder to duplicate the angle of the old photo now - since there's less belly dragging me down, I'm standing straighter, which is also helping to slim down my profile!

Anyhow, that's all from me today. Going to fit in some lovely lovely revision before deciding whether I want to do my weights or go for a run tonight! Can't wait for next week...


  1. Well done dude. Youre an inspiration. Seriously, the more people who see this progress, the more who'll want to join in. Inspiring others from your own acts - you can't ask for much more achievement really.
    Please check my blog too!

  2. Ooh, and remember to take up a sport when you get to a stage where youre confident to exercise etc. in public.

  3. looks like you're doing swell, keep it up inspiration? fuck yeah

  4. Thanks for the support guys, definitely helps keep me motivated! Great point about team sports too - its kinda like exercise by default, as you're doing something that's fun anyway. I'm pretty much just running at the moment, which would be boring as hell without my iPod! Should def start looking at some of the Uni sports teams...

  5. I think the pics, especially the side view, REALLY show the work you are doing! Keep it up, Idol!!!

  6. Wow, great job. You can really see the difference!

  7. Wow..great progress...I love seeing it in photos, and I'm sure you do too! =) So rewarding!

  8. AWESOME progress!! you said you wish you had taken measurements... I wish i had thot to take pictures from the beginning of my journey! Keep up your hard work!!!
