8 stone lost

When I weighed myself this morning I've officially lost over 8 stone. I now weigh 79.6kg (12st 7lb) which means I've lost 52.2kg (8st 3lb). Although I'm no longer using weight as my goal, it's good to see when I hit these traditional milestones. This week I'll be getting my body fat measured. I hope that it's gone down by about 1% but with the amount it's dropped in recent months I won't be disappointed if it doesn't.

I'm still cycling to work and still cycling for pleasure. I have a cold at the moment so decided to give cycling last weekend a miss. I rode to work this morning with a tail wind. I knew this meant I'd have a headwind for the ride home. However it was really windy and there was driving rain! I got soaked but it took me 55 mins to ride the 9 miles :-(

I'm still running, using the NHS Choices Couch to 5K programme. It's going well having completed week 5 and running for a continuous 20 mins. It's hard but not impossible.

I'm still getting the swimming coaching for my triathlon. Boy, it's hard! I'm having to relearn how to swim and it's so tiring. I hope I'll get the hang of it soon.

Here's a before and after picture for you. The before picture was taken at work two years ago. The after picture was taken at my brother's wedding recently.
