Well, i never thought i would get to this board, but here i am, with my story [pretty much complete. I started at about 15stone+ which is 210 pounds and here i am 4 stone lighter and feeling great. This website takes a lot of the credit due to the inspiring and helpful, caring people on the forums who I turned to in times of need and who helped selflessly, and i hope i can do the same in the future for others..

Me In 2004/5 (I think i was 15st+)

so here I am, much happier, much healthier and ready to stay this way for the rest of my life. Its worth the sacrafices of not having that extra portion or not eating at night and putting a bit of exercise in. Its all worth it in the end...

Thanks everyone!!:D:D:D:D:D

Mark, you look FANTASTIC!!!! Just fantastic. SO handsome and happy and confident. And you are quite the ladies man with alll those pretty girls hanging all over you, aren't you?!?!?!! Can't help but notice the beer and alcohol though, just watch it, will ya? But I think you will! It sounds like you're really enjoying this new life you've carved out for yourself, as well you should. You've done an amazing thing. Not too many young men can do what you've done. I'm so incredibly proud of you and so incredibly HAPPY for you.

Congratulations on a job VERY WELL DONE!!!

Congrats on hitting a goal--you can see the difference between the first photos of yourself and the most recent ones in more than just one way. You're obviously more trim, but your body language is completely different! In the first set you don't look very comfortable in your own skin, in your more recent photos, you just ooze self-confidence. Congrats on making a change that will last a lifetime! Cheers!

This is pretty much what I wanted to say, but worded much more eloquently, so I'll just steal it in quote form! Congratulations! I hope we'll still see your sunny self around these boards. :)

Good for you. Doing this when your young like you are is much smarter than waiting till your an old lady like me. I'm sure you feel as good as you look.

Um,

You look great in the photos but I'm hoping your new ticker is a mistake. You're a shade under 6' , a man, and you want to weight less than 9 1/2 stone? If that's right then I think you may be getting sick.

I've just realised that your photos are from when you weighed 175ish and you did look truly fabulous. You can't look like this anymore at 140. I'm really concerned about you.
