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.
