Yeah I was 19 stone at my highest, although I'm not a great one for scales.
I prefer to judge on how I feel, look, clothes etc.
So many people have commented on my weight loss.
As for loose skin, I'm really not sure.
I did it by cutting out my really bad eating habits. I'd go through tubs of ice cream at the weekends and I just stopped that. I stayed away from stuff like cheese, cereals etc. I think cheese and bread is the devil, although wholemeal bread is OK.
I also did workout DVDs at home. I did The Biggest Loser one and also did some of P90X which is an extreme home DVD routine which is a 90 days get ripped thingy bob. Got really bored of that. I couldn't stick to the eating plan as I didn't like most of the stuff on there. The setup also included yoga which was bloody ridiculous so I packed that in.
I now have the confidence to go the gym so don't do my exercise dvds, but for me they really worked and I could prance around my room with no embarrassment.
Mainly it consisted of cardio. That's what works best for me. I love to work a sweat up as I know I'm doing good then. Also did some weights, press ups, squats...the usual..
Update on eating:
For Lunch I had an omelette. Three eggs, dash of milk and lots of seasoning (salt/pepper)... Also had a helping of baked beans to go down with. It was nice, but more like scrambled egg. My omlette flipping is atrocious! Not sure how many calories that is.
65 minutes on running machine
Calories burnt: 720
