    Hey everyone, I'm new here, my name is Liam. I made a change to my lifestyle back in March, I used to eat pizza, chips, cheese, crisps, sausage rolls, everything you could think of, after a break up with my ex I started to lose weight without knowing it, and when I saw how much id lost, i decided to keep going with it, and the weight kept dropping off, as I said, that was back in March, here are my before and after pics.

    This one on the right is at a new years eve party in December 2008, and the one on the left is me now:

    Update: (7 May 2010) Hey guys just thought I would update you of whats been going on since i last posted in June 2009. Well, I've struggled to maintain my weight since coming to University, I did manage to get down to 13 stone in November, but slowly since then it has steadily increased back up to 14 stone, I'm now really struggling not to go over that 14 stone mark, im still eating really healthily but maybe just a bit too much of it, plus the drinking at university does not really help. But hopefully after uni finishes this month I shall be back in tip top shape :)

    Update: (8 April 2013) Hi all, three years on from my last update, In January 2013 I had gained most of my weight back, going from 13.5st in 2009 to 18st this year, I was really down in the dumps and hated myself for putting all of that weight back on. So I decided to do something about it (again) I signed up for a 10k run in May this year and have so far lost 1.5st, putting at 16.5st. the weight is slowly coming off and I'm hopeful that by the time I race this time next month I will be somewhere in the region of 14st.
    If anyone wants to know how I put the weight back on just let me know and I'll explain.

    Update: (21 November 2013) Hi guys, new update! In my previous update I said I was slowly losing the weight again and I wanted to get down to 14st, well, I did it!!! :D I now currently weight 14st 1lbs, thanks to a mixture of a couple half marathons and diet! Cant believe I've had to lose all that weight twice, but this time I am determined to keep it off, keep up the good work guys and if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

    Haha, well i'm kinda still good friends with her, so she has seen me progress and lose all of this weight, I never really talk to her about it though, I think she knows it was mostly because of her that I lost all of the weight though.

    But still, I can honestly say that she was the best thing that has ever happened to me, because if I didnt go out with her, I know for sure that I wouldnt have lost so much weight.
