Week 19 on LighterLife and a big step

I’m starting Route To Management this week. I was 1.3 lbs short of my target but as I was so close I figured there was no point delaying the next step. I’ve lost over 100 lbs so far in 19 weeks and I will continue to lose a little bit over the first few weeks on RTM.

The RTM phase must be followed carefully or I risk lapses and going back to my old ways and I don’t want to do that.

I had a new photo taken for work the other day and when I look at the old and new side by side I found the difference quite startling as I see myself every day and the photos I’ve had have not been a close up of the face. Anyway here they are, see what you think.

    Hi, Steve,

    I stumbled across your blog from your Twitter, which I found via LinkedIN.

    It's been many years since we've worked together, and I must say, I almost didn't recognise your LinkedIN photograph.

    This has explained it all!

    I am hugely impressed! I don't think I underestimate the effort this took, and it's good to see you so happy with the results.

    Take care.
