I have just finished the 12 week program so will be adding some photos to this post in a little while. After 12 weeks, by final weigh-in produced the following stats:
Fat: 31.1 Kg
Overall, this 12 weeks has been character-building. It has meant sticking to a fairly strict eating regime (I won’t call it a diet as it isn’t in the “weight loss dieting” sense), and going to the gym when I really didn’t feel like it. However, I can now have a week off while I think about the next program. I’ll be starting that immediately after a relaxing week which I think my body needs to help repair my tired joints and muscles.
When I started out with these 12 weeks, my measurements were as follows:
Weight: 108.2 Kg
Fat: 34.9 g
That represents a nett loss of nearly 6 Kg. While the scales report that only 3.8Kg of fat were lost, I very much doubt these measurements for fat are correct. My wife has been commenting on my muscle growth over this period, and I too have noticed changes in muscle mass. I therefore will stop posting the fat measurement on this site, and instead, post the a weekly photo instead.
12 week program before and after shots:
Note that I forgot to take a “back shot” before I started, so the one I included in the BEFORE picture for the back shot was actually taken at the end of week 1.
I started out my lifestyle makeover over a year ago. I have had ups and downs, and fallen off the program a few times. However, here are my photos from 27th July 2007.
I would love to hear about your own weight loss success stories, so feel free to write a comment below.
