Peter Smith's Diet Progress

by dohpeterchina on 26 Apr 2013, 22:39

Before the 17th September 2012 I looked like this. Waist 108 cm, hips 110 cm
My vanity has prevented me from giving my real weight, (I had no scales) I logged 95kg, the last known weight I choose to remember. I have logged 107kg, but I did lose some of that - I swear it's true...
Image
Thank goodness the stripes made me look thin - O dear!
Image
After 5 1/2 months (8th April 2013) I looked like this Waist 100 cm, hips 108 cm
Image
After 7 months I look like this (21st April 2013) Waist 96 cm, hips 105 cm
Image

Waist 92 cm, hips 103 cm (15th May directly after my fast and keenly tugging on the tape measure - I want to lose weight so much and my bloody waist is over my stomach). Who am I cheating?

For this photo I measure in at Waist 95 cm, hips 102 (8 months, 17 May 2013)
Image
The lesson is that measurements vary, but the pictures tell the story

The awful truth is that on 12th June 2013 I got some scales and measured in at 88.4Kg. I am either losing weight at 170g per week or I lied about my start weight. You can look at the pictures and draw your own conclusions. What would you do?

Slow and steady, no picture this month. My waist is 94 cm and my hips are 101 cm, I have got to start getting into that tummy fat soon!

18th July 2013: 6 weeks since I got the scales. I now weigh daily. According to the trend line I have lost another kilo perhaps more. The important thing is I am losing weight and another cantimetre off my hips (100cm).

These are my results on the 5:2 Fasting Diet, I am sure other people will do better than me, but I am enjoying myself.

Read this before giving up
Why do the scales show an increase when I've been so good?
Weight fluctuates disappointingly but it does go down.

5:2 fasting since 17th September 2012
Have a look at my progress

When I can find some scales I will! Russian's don't weigh themselves

I am focusing on body shape, I have given up too many diets because of waiting to lose weight. Unfortunately the progress tracker demands a weight, I only have waist and hip sizes.

Waist 108 now stands at 92 cm
Hips 110 now down to 103 cm

8 months and still going strong

Thanks, I feel very good. I have become stronger and more alert. It is easier to care for my wife. You can see her in the last picture, in the wheelchair.

It is 8 months today - so another picture OK!

You're definitely turning into a racing snake Peter!

I hope you saved a pair of your big shorts. they're great to look back on. My hubby lost a huge amount of weight (not 5:2 as it was before MMs program) and we have a pair of 72ins waist trousers and a fleece jacket that we kept as an awful warning! I actually have a photo of us both wearing the jacket to keep us motivated. Its on the fridge along with the photo of me that shocked me into action!
