I hope that should read 113.3kg...otherwise that is one heck of a loss! :shock: :wink:
If you have more weeks were there are losses rather than gains - then you will win out in the end. :)
Slow and steady wins the race. 8)

Its slowed down dude to what ive been eatng.
For the last 3 weeks ive been eating quite a few carbs and alot of protein to help build muscle.

Breakfast (170g low fat yogurt. 4 weetbix)
Snack1 (can of tuna, 20g nuts)
Arvo snack (banana, slice of fruit toast)
Lunch and dinner. (Cup of rice, cup of vegs, 200g chicken)

Since ive started this, ive built up alot of muscle.

Starting this weekend ill be dropping the rice and replacing with salad for two weeks to fast track a bit more weight off my body as ive got a a few things in just over a month i need a new suit for.

Bought cheapy 38" work pants yesterday, down from 44" when i started. They "fit", another couple of kgs off should see them fit well. Gives me something to try on weekly to give me confidence

Any progress is better than none. Continual improvement. And even when weight does not change or even increases temporarily you should remember that you're building good habits for life in general.
Striving to improve in every way possible.

That's it mate.

The good thing is, every week or two there is something new to motivate me now. in the last week, I now have upper chest muscles that are starting to stick out like champs.
My Triceps sticks out without flexing, same with my traps (Top of shoulders).

Another 12.5kgs to go till my "Main goal" which i'm "Hopping" will give me a semi flat stomach, and more defined muscles. This is going off what I can see from a mate. (6ft, 96kgs, looks healthy)

As you said. YES im not loosing 1kg+ a week, YES every now and then I don't have the best food. But what I AM doing is making me happy.
I have a partner that makes this 100% different (If it was by myself, Id just eat simple meals etc)
I like the gym, its become a social thing for me.
I eat breakfast now and feel censored if I miss it (Like today... ran out of weetbix..
I like the healthier lunches and meals. They actually make me more full.

All in all, ill get there eventually :)

Good to see that you are steering a steady course. :D

Because you are spending so much time in the gym it sounds like that a lot of your weight loss is being masked by your muscle gain.
This is something that you should keep to the fore of your thoughts when you weigh in, so that you won't be discouraged.

A weight lifting friend was trying to urge me the other day to bulk up with muscle.
I don't think he understood my resistance to the idea. My goal was to look slim not strong.
His most convincing argument though was good...with bulked up muscle bound arms my loose arm skin wouldn't be so bad! :shock: :lol:
Judging by your height/goal weight (6ft, 96kg) it looks like you are going for that muscle bulk look.

Great to read that you are embracing a healthy lifestyle and it is becoming very much who you are.
Keep on this path and indeed you will get there! 8)

When we get into slackish mode that is the time to increase the self talk.
Keep underscoring your head the reasons why you started all this in the first place.
By doing so you will increase your motivation to see it through to the end
and stop the slide from slack to stop! :shock:

Good it here that you are still chipping away at it.
Forward motion is always better than backwards...
at least you are travelling the right way to success! :D

You've done pretty well for yourself between the ham and not doing gym for three weeks.
It could have been a disaster but you have kept moving forward.
Good work. 8)

A new year and time to really push it along so that you can finish the job off and start the maintenance phase of your new life. :D

Wishing you success!

Thanks Kim for the kind works.
Merry Xmas/Happy new year to yourself and your family.

- 105.2kg

Hoping to push a little harder and reach 100kg before Mates wedding in March. I need a new suit and would prefer to not buy twice :D

Dropped from size 44 work pants to 36 now.
From xxxl down to xl/L

Another big push should see me meet my first goal :)

Thanks for the kind wishes.

I always liked the 0.1's and 0.2's because they made me hungry to break into the next set of 0.something numbers below.
I'm sure you would love to see 104.something as your next number, right?

Clothing is such a problem when you are losing a great deal of weight.
You start to look like a tramp who has stolen ill fitting items off the clothesline.
I found op shops a great help in this area.
When you are losing 10 kilos a month in your hay days - they can save you a fortune.

I remember clearly having to buy some bathers after my old ones kept slipping off no matter how tightly I would tie the drawstring.
Had a few near embarrassing moments with them so it was time to retire them.
I found a cheap pair in the op shop that did me nicely for the rest of the journey.
Actually I still have them and was thinking just the other day that I aught to get a new good pair as the current ones are really too loose now.
Don't want a repeat of what happened last time! :lol:

Keep reaching - and achieving!
