SB2: Early small losses are huge


I’m in.

Current weight 110kg.

My story:

Always been big for my height. When younger, played soccer (cant call it football – just not right), rugby, cricket, squash, swam, sailed, biked, fished etc all through school and university – played hard, ate hard, drank hard and (apparently) studied a bit. A serious knee injury along with a career, wife and family has gradually curtailed activity to the point where I find myself the wrong side of 50, and trading the right kind of of body condition (muscle) for the wrong type (flab). Clothes that were comfortable in the right places now don’t fit in all the wrong places, and commuting daily from south of the Bombay’s to the big smoke daily for work is cutting into available time for physical activity.

With type II diabetes a genetic risk, time to get real and I know that it wont happen without some kind of disclosure – I’ll just keep kidding myself otherwise.

Managed to hit 92kg for my wedding day but have been nowhere close since to guess if I need a stretch (shrink) target, it should be that. Lets give it a go – nothing offered, nothing gained (lost)!



A lot of us have diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, dementia and/or Alzheimer’s in our family.  Changes we make today can have major payback later.

Even if you’re not “too heavy” now, or you are “healthy fat”, you’re actually taking out a loan you may never get to pay back.

Personally, I have heart disease, diabetes and Alzheimer’s in my direct bloodlines.


I’ve notices some of you are posting your early results.  And I saw someone who in on week lost more than I had in 3.  My initial reaction was to want to compete, but I talked myself out of that.  It’s not a race with others – it’s a steady race with yourself.

2.0 may not look like a large number, but walk to the fridge and hold a 2 litre milk bottle.

2 kg is an awesome amount of weight actually.

So small numbers have huge impact on your life.
