His target goal weight was 75kg….we got to 77.2kg and I think that is close enough!
As you can see from his results he has lost substantial GIRTH MEASUREMENTS and dropped record BODY FAT levels.
So the weight on the scales is not a true indicator of his results. The photos are!
When Simon started with me two years ago he weighed 117kg. He had to change a lot of his eating habits over this time to finally reach his weight of 77kg.
At the start of his challenge he weighed 84kg. He has lost 8kg of scale weight, 38cm of girth measurments and dropped 15% body fat.
This is EXTRAORDINARY. Well done Simon!
Over the last 6 weeks Simon has been following a calorie restricted diet, exercising twice a day and avoiding ALL temptation. During this time he had his 45th birthday, 5 christmas parties and various other social occasions.
AND HE STILL LOST WEIGHT. But if he had not administered any control at these festivities, he could have quite easily put it on!
To lose weight you must create a DEFICIENCY between what you are eating and exercising. You must EAT LESS and MOVE MORE to create the GAP for weight loss to occur.
I will never write you a nutrition plan that keeps alcohol, chocolate, fat and sugar in your diet….. Unless of course you would like to exercise 8 hours a day? It simply is not possible.
You need to decide WHAT YOU WANT. Do you want to lose weight? Or do you want to eat and drink? Because you can’t have both.
My passion is HEALTH. At the end of the day, it does not matter what real size you are, as long as you are healthy. When you eat good food, in the right portions, in the right balance, your weight will sit where it needs to be. Coupled with daily exercise and this will help improve your cardiovascular (heart) health to prevent disease and illness.
I abhor junk food, takeway foods, packaged meals and excessive alcohol intake…especially when coupled with gluttony. You will never be able to convince me that you feel fantastic, have endless energy, and are happy to know that eating these foods will cause rotting inside your bowels and create diseases in your body. Am I right?
In 2012 write down WHAT YOU WANT to achieve with your health and weight loss goals. Then DECIDE what you need to do to make them happen. It is not rocket science and I am sure you know what it is you need to give up in order to get your results.
No more excuses this year….Just COMMITTMENT, CONSISTENCY, PERSISTANCE and MOTIVATION!
