All done

Okay im pretty much done with the weight loss thing. Mostly into maintaining and no doubt dropping the last unimportant couple of kg. Im seriously into cycling which is awesome, My daughters are both now into cycling as well. This blog as a weight loss blog is pretty much dead but left here for anyone wanting to read it (for whatever reason)

My personal website is at and of course being a geek i also have which doesnt have a lot yet. The weight loss info is at which is a MUCH better website.

My new goals are to improve my cycling speed and endurance. I managed to make 18th on my last ride. I was in the first bunch for most of the way but hadnt ridden in 3 weeks so ended up cramping and dropping back in the last 10km.

update - 49kg/112lb lost horay!

Meep meep!

Time for my update again! Things are going great! ive lost 49kg/112lb (at a guess).

Have been back at work and therefore very busy!

Ive been doing more cycling lately and less weights.
Weights burn less calories, cycling more. Though i still go to the gym and maintain what I have.
Ive had to buy more clothes than ever before because they just dont fit. there is only so far you can wear REALLY baggy clothes for lol.
I have lots of friends in lots of sizes and we're doing great clothes swaps which helps. As i grow out of clothes i give them to the larger friends and as i grow into sizes friends give me their old clothes from when they used to be smaller or bigger or whatever. And ive had to buy new underwear and a few other things.

I have 2 weddings to go to in the next couple weeks, currently my hair is pink and yellow, im guessing i should probably go natural ... or blonde again (like the pic on my profile).

Not to sure what I'll do yet anyway, ill see and post pics :)

The Book

Well I have this large flap of skin now left on my tummy - its huge.
Its gross and it hangs down like 10-15cm .

Its a bad side effect of weight loss and it will never disappear without surgery. Surgery will cost me about 10 grand. So ive decided to write a book on weight loss, both factual and my personal experience.

Once ive done that Ill sell it on Trademe repeatedly until i make enough money to cover the cost of the operation.
By the time I get to my goal weight I will be about 70-80kg lighter than i started. Thats a serious weight loss.

Anyway thats my idea - might take some time lol.

Bike the Lake

Well ive been going to the gym less and less now.
Just cycling to work and back, then the weekend before last i went in a Bike The Lake ride.
I did the 42km 1 lap challenge and came 272nd out of 500 odd in my field. It took me 1 hour 44mins.
