Yesterday my fiancee and I offically started;


We had started another OPERATION: GET SKINNY a few years ago but failed. It failed because we didn’t have any real motivation or reason to lose weight. We didn’t have a goal or anything to work towards, so after a few months we lost interest with the idea of dieting and going to the gym and we ended up putting back all the weight we lost, plus more (eek). However that was over a year ago and since then we got engaged (see post) so as we are now getting married, we now have a goal and a reason lose the weight, and so OPERATION: GET SKINNY FOR THE WEDDING was born.

So the plan is simple. We are getting married in a year and 2 days (Saturday, August 25th 2012) and want to lose some weight and look AWESOME for the wedding.

My starting weight on Monday 22 August 2011 was;

12 st 4 lbs (That’s about 78 Kg or 172 lbs)

I want to get down to;

11 st. (70 kg or 154 lbs)

You can follow my weight loss progress with the tracker below;

  1. We’re trying to do that too but I’m looking to lose about 3 stone and have got 11 months left until we’re married! We’re on weightwatchers and it is working but had a few weekends where too much alcohol was consumed and all the good work undone. We will succeed though!

    Good luck!
