3mercer's Super Turbo Weightloss Extravaganza XVIII
OK, so maybe the thread title is a little over the top :D
A little introduction;
Well, my name is Ollie but my, many, lovers call me George - I still dont know why. I have an issue, a rather large issue, namely my belly and rather epic man cleavage. This is something that I am 100% determined to be rid of by Christmas.
So how did we arrive at this disaster point? Well, come on, we all know - BISCUITS! Well, biscuits are just the tip of the iceberg - a lot of it can be attributed to countless nights on the sofa, scoffing my chubby cheeks until I feel sick.
I've been kidding myself a lot too. You see, at school, I was heavy but heavy at school was good. I played a lot of Rugby (even at one stage for my county) so no matter how much I ate I was able to maintain a semi sensible 16 stone over my 6ft 2 frame. But here is the crux, I was running around a lot!
So Ollie, its simple no? You're not running around anymore so cut back on the calories. Oh hell no! My appetite remained at the same level. I ballooned to 20 stone probably in record breaking time. It was horrible. Looking at pictures of myself from then does make me weep a little inside.
So, back in 2011 I decided to shift it. I did a crazy meal replacement diet, hit the treadmill, took loads of supplements and quickly got back to 16. Did I maintain? Nope. I craved and craved food. I would hide myself away from everyone, my friends, my family, missing birthdays & even christmas!! But once you get the hunger it cannot be managed. So, guess what? Yep, I ballooned again to 18st.
So Mr 2012 Ollie - whatcha gonna do? Well Mr 2014 Ollie I decided to go to Slimming World - and it worked!!! Oh did it work. I managed to get down to a very almost healthy 13st 9/10lb and felt on top of the world. Clothes fit me, even more girls fancied me and I could finally remove the black cloth from over the mirror.
So where are we today? Well, you guessed it, I'm a discerning gentleman of generous girth (not like that) at bang on 18st (thank you Boots scales).
I started my diet TODAY (did all my prep shopping etc. yesterday) and this time its serious. I am a young man still (24) and I want to take control.
At the moment I am merely hilarious, super talented, charming and humble. I need to add "Of reasonable size" to that burgeoning list of attributes so, subscribe, post, shout at me, call me fat whatever because this time its coming off and staying off.
Target; 13st 7lbs by Christmas via SW EE.
