OPERATION: GET SKINNY (update 1)

On Monday 22nd I started OPERATION: GET SKINNY FOR THE WEDDING and…

I’VE DONE IT!!! I HAVE PASSED MY GOAL WEIGHT OF 11st!!!

I am now 10st 13lbs! I don’t really know what to do now?  Last time I tried to diet I didn’t lose much weight, so I didn’t think I would reach my goal weight as quickly as I have.

I have lost 19lbs in total, that’s 1st 5lbs in 8 weeks.

So where do I go from here? Well I was thinking maybe I should reach my “perfect” BMI. My height is 5’8″ and as you know my current weight is 10st 13lbs so that gives me a BMI of 23.3. The ideal range is 18.5 to 24.9. So I am in the healthy weight range, but 21.7 would be the “perfect” BMI as it’s bang in the middle of 18.5 and 24.9.

To be a BMI of 21.7 I would have to weigh 10st 3lbs (143lbs 64.9kg), so that is now my goal.

So the NEW plan is simple. I’m getting married in a 313 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)

On Monday 17th October I passed my goal weight of;

11 st. (70 kg or 154 lbs)

My new goal weight is;

10 st 3 lbs (64.9kg or 143 lbs).

The goal on my weight loss tracker has been updated and so it now looks like this;

 Can I do it? Will I be able to keep the weight off before the wedding? Is it possible? Who knows? The wedding is in 313 days and this blog will tell you how I am doing on a weekly basis.

  2. Great work indeed. I’ve lost a stone so far for my wedding in July and would love to be able to lose a couple more before then.

    My advice would be to ignore the BMI table though as it’s flawed and can’t represent everyone. If you feel good and healthy then you’re fine.
