i had to look that up! and thank ya ian!

when i joined the site a 58 euro was snug. the new 50 is a tight fit around the chest with the liner in, but fits like a glove.

i guess a lot of you dont know ive lost around 105lbs overall. 90% just through diet. counting calories the first year. i started keto last april. took a couple breaks, gained a little back before buckling down.

beginning of last month i ran the first mile in my life at age 39. at a 10 minute pace. something i never thought i would do.

i ran 27 days last month, even in the rain, and finished the month doing a 10k run. my average mile pace is under 8 minutes now.

ive had to slow her down a little this week. im having some pain in the si joint of my hip. a joint i didnt even know was there. i think im just doing too much too fast. the last week i went from running 3 miles a day to 6. i decided to go easy a week or two only running 3 miles every other day to let my hip calm down a bit and avoid an injury.

a month and a half in and i can see some results. i havent lost any weight, which is good because i dont want to at this point, but i suppose im swapping some body fat percentage for lean muscle.

my only goal when i decided to start this journey was a flat stomach. im sooo close, but still have a little pooch hangin on for dear life.

i think im gonna hit that goal by end of summer though.

when i started, i could barely run 1/4 mile without being spent. im hoping to run half marathon distance by summers end, maybe even more.

im actually enjoying the challenge!!!

I know how hard it is to work that hard, it's no joke. You deserve all the credit you can get. Well done sir.

Re: New leather, who dis???

Great result Kevin.

Just shows that those who put in the work get results. And people will tell you how 'lucky' you are to have lost all that weight. Lucky? Frig me, they probably sit around on Playstations and watching whatever crap daytime TV you have over there that eventually finds its way to UK, and they will not even walk to the mailbox.

You obviously feel better in life and better on a bike. As another who has followed a fitness regime all my life, I applaud your efforts because I know the willpower it takes to achieve!

That reminds me of the guys who go slamming carbon and titanium all over their bikes to lessen weight, when all they really have to do is lose 5 kilos off each butt cheek and put all that money to better use!!

Good to see people looking after themselves. Key thing is to know what you are eating as well. Thumbs up for the exercise too.
