in memory of a friend I lost this year I've decided to do a sponsored weight loss. I'm 6'1" and at my peak was nearly 21st, mountain biking and roller derby has got me down to just above 17st mark now. I'm fairly fit but have struggled with the extra motivation to shift the last lot of blubber.
I exercise every day and the roller derby especially is very physical and burns lots calories, so it's time to look at my dire food habits, which are going to test me the most.
As an incentive to crack it I thought I'd set up a weigh loss challenge for myself to lose the last 2.5 stone to get me to where I need to be. I'm of stocky build so I reckon me 14.5 - 15st and i'm trim again. My theory is if I start the challenge with sponsorship I'd be more likely to succeed?
I did lose the last stone in a month purely by stop eating chocolate and cola, but the last bit is going to take some serious planning and effort.
Am I being to unrealistic or shall I go for it??
PS the 5 months is because it's my birthday in mid may!
