Hey guys, I officially hit my weightloss goal today and skipped over it by a little bit as well. I started of my weightloss goal on 12th of December 2012 aiming to get to 110kg by the time I visit the family for this years December festivities and today 9th of November 2013 I reached 109.2kg.

As I was really self conscious of my weight when I started I didn't take any before pictures specifically for a before purpose but I will include a random photo that was taken when i was at my highest weight. Pictures at the end of my wall of text :P

To lose the first 20kg I did a full run through of Insanity and re-did the second month, followed by 2 months of slightly reduced calorie intake for slow loss while studying full time, another full run through of Insanity and then repeated the first month, got bored of doing Insanity switched to Intermittent Fasting with a fairly decent Calorie Deficit to lose the last 17kg. It's been quite an interesting journey and i like that the use of insanity although it didn't really help that much in the weightloss gave me a fair amount of muscle mass so that i won't have to hit the gym to much to have a toned body after i reach my next goal for weight loss.

It's been really good having a place for this last half of my journey to be able to come and talk about issues which arise from this journey we are all going along. It's definetely been a positive experience to get here but it seems there may be an even more challenging journey coming up which is getting used to/happy with my new body and maintaining once i get to my final body i can be happy and proud of.

I wish everyone on the site a good and hopefully enjoyable journey to your own weightloss goals and i look forward to chatting to people further as i reach into the field of maintaining my weightloss.

Thanks guys, you would be right to assume that Secret Swan it was definetely worth the effort :).

And luckyMommy it's nice of you to say, mostly it was because after carrying the weight for so long i learnt howto hide under clothes. But i got tired of hiding and now i can get out there and not be afraid to be myself and choose clothes that aren't just good for hiding my body :)

Thanks for all the great responses guys, you have no idea how great it is to have people who understand the process respond. I updated the OP with a photo taken after goal weight was reached as the other was just over.

Wow, congrats! Super impressed with your exercise. I actually just did Insanity tonight. I keep starting it but I can't seem to finish the program because it's so exhausting.
