Totally forgot to post this last year! This is a before and after pic from the 4 months of good diet and training I did. I really enjoyed it and definitely could have got leaner but I began to feel a bit to thin. I started at 92.7kg and finished at 78.7kg. I got down from around 26% body fat to 12% and went from a 36” waist to a 32”! I’m now somewhere in between these two pics shape wise, probably more to the first one after Chrimmy! I still enjoy training but I don’t fancy stripping that much fat again. I now weigh 88.2kg with a 33” waist, I feel strong and good at that. #beforeandafter #4months #fitfriday #havingatanhelps #strong #fitat45 #noexcuses #doitforyourself #health
