    Hello everyone!
    Hope you are all doing well, I'm sure you are :)

    Just thought I'd post a bit and let you know I'm still here! I don't get on as much as I'd like to these days as since I moved I don't have internet access in my flat (yet) so I'm restricted to posting at work :sigh: I'm lurking and reading posts but don't get time to reply much.

    I'm slowly but surely making my way down towards my target weight (15stone) but it's going so slowly now, literally 1-2lbs a week if I get lucky.

    I'm still exercising, I'm now hitting the gym for an hour or so every-other day with a buddy of mine, doing mainly weight-training but a fair bit of cardio as well, last week we ended up in there for almost 2 hours on one day; I'm enjoying working out so much it's almost scary! :p and from it my fitness/strength levels have improved so much lately, I can now quite comfortably run between 3 and 4 miles in a hour which is something I never though I'd be able to do, and I can bench/squat lift 160 kilo's, pretty good considering that's 30 kilo's more than I used to weigh! :eek::D

    Of course the downside to all the training is that although I am getting fitter and stronger, my readings on the scales are getting a bit skewed now and on certain areas (arms, chest) I'm actually gaining back some size. Yes, it's a good defined muscle gain and not a bad fatty wobbly one, no doubt there, it just means that I'm now having to go a whole lot more by how I look than what the scale says.

    I'm kind of fighting with myself really, I know that sticking to LL will lose me the last 12-14lbs I want to lose, but at the same time I'm finally liking who I am and it's kinda depressing to think that at my current rates of loss it'll be yet another 2 potential months to 'goal'; back at Christmas I was planning on being towards the end of RTM by this time. Still, no way I'm leaving the gym and I'm sticking with LL for now, I've done a little over 9 months so whats another 2? :eek:


    I'm off to a conference tomorrow and Wednesday so the earliest I'll be back on will be Thursday morning, I'll try and get some more pics to upload for your viewing pleasures :p for now, here's a couple from the last week or so;

    fun in the pub (I wasn't drinking of course!)

    my friend (not pictured) decided I needed to change my haircut,
    so she gave me a new 'do' for the evening lol
    luckily it wasn't actually cut and is back to normal now :eek:

    on the dancefloor at the
    party, party, party! :D

    doing what I do best, Rockin' It!
    (Yes, that is an inflatable guitar, and no,
    I didn't buy it, they already had it!) :cool::rolleyes::D

    you are looking great - and will be expecting to see some topless shots in a few months time when you have honed that 6-pack!!!

    Good to hear from you! And you are doing so well. Sounds like you have your priorities right in the way you consider your weight losses. Glad you are enjoying the gym and feeling great about your emerging new bod. As Daisy said... Looking forward to some Full Chest shots ;). xx

    Glad to see you in good spirits. I had been wondering where you've been - lurking!
    Stick with it Pete, you are nearly there.
    The last part seems to be the hardest because we get so many messages from other people when we get into the "normal" category.
    Are you enjoying living in your flat?
