Haha thanks guys! I was pretty surprised, actually.

I have you lot to thank though as well! Otherwise I probably wouldn't have gotten serious this soon :)

Compliments rock :D I can never get enough of them, and I've finally realised how annoying it is to be like "Oh thanks, but I hate my..." in response. Now I just say thanks very much and accept them!

Sounds like you're doing great :D

Em

Oh yeah compliments rock. I still can't accept them well.

I'm still not used to them...

Usually I'll say "Thankyou! I'm still not there yet" or "Still don't have the six pack yet" or "Still need to lose a bit of the man boobs"

I guess there's only one solution - get a six pack and pecs and then people will get used to them :P

Hahah :P You'll get used to them soon, Tom :P Especially when you start catching up with people you haven't seen since before you lost weight. Their reactions are enough to get you to start accepting the compliments :P

I went back to my school not long ago, and people didn't have the faintest idea who I was until I told them! It was bizarre! Felt like I had a face transplant!

I will try and respond better though, when one of my best mates comes home from 7 months overseas on monday... he last saw me at around 85kg.

Keep going at it!!! You're doing great. It's good to see a guy with some major motivation, most of the time it's just us gals who join up on these forums! Good to have you around!

Weighed in at 77.4kg - 18.5% at 11am this morning. The percentage isn't really accurate in the morning, so I will get a better reading tomorrow.

But 77.4kg is pretty low for me, I'm starting to see a better outline around the abs, and I think the last bit of man boobage is disappearing (finally!)

I've thinned a lot more around the waist - I know this because my pants are way too big now, where as a kilo or two ago they were just a tad big.

Someone said I had a cute arse last night, which I've never gotten before, so yay.

Well can honestly say I've never had that comment before lols and suppose it would depend on who said it whether I'd reckon it was a compliment or not :wink: j/k... hehe I do remember when the girlies use to pinch my arse in the night clubs though hehehe

Anyway Tom you are doing well... keep it up mate I'm sure you will reach your desired weight and more importantly the body you want... just make sure you leave some of the ladies for us 'old'er fellas :wink: 8)
Highs : 107 Kg (24 Sept 2007) : 113.5 Kg (12 Jan 2014) : 112.5 Kg (26 Jan 2016)
Current :99.2 Kg (31 May 2016)
Lows : 78.4 Kg (20 May 2008) : 87.4 Kg (on 16 Dec in both 2009 & 2010) : 82.9 Kg (14 Apr 2011) : 87.1 Kg (4 Jul 2011) : 90.5 Kg (14 Jul 2014)
Target : 94 Kgs by 15th Jul

Thanks heaps guys :)

I was waiting for my mate at the airport and was greeted by him and his family - who haven't seen me for about the same amount of time.

They were shocked - I hadn't been called skinny until now!
