I'd like to get down to 80kgs as I would consider this "race weight"; like a few posts above I am built more like a rugby player. I'm down from 107.9kgs of "pud" in Nov 2012
unreal achievment. How did you do it?

I didn't see this post earlier but here is a belated response anyways. In November 2012 I decided I’d had enough of not seeing my family due to the long stressful hours at work, and being unhappy as a result, I was lucky enough to be in a position where I didn’t “need” to work so I up and quit my job. This was the start of the turn around, I stopped eating shit as I was home more rather than grabbing convenience foods, In addition in the time of I started riding my mountain bike again.
In April of 2013 I entered a 6hr race, which formed part of a state series – I nearly died in the race but reignited my passion for racing, at the end of April I got a road bike to train on… The rest is history.
Along the way I have changed my diet quite dramatically, I’ve cut out things like soft drink, sweets etc… I eat a fairly well diverse diet that is neither good, nor bad and I try to get as much riding in as possible. For the last few months I’ve only been getting in 8hrs a week due to the birth of our little on so I need to be a bit more careful of what I eat as well.
The most improtant thing though is I am happy now; I work much less, I spend much more time with my family
