    Hey Guys I haven't posted here I awhile and thought I would update my success page as I turn 49 next month

    I am comfortably maintaining my weight and training in fact I would say I am more defined now than in the pictures I posted

    I have changed my training exchanging power walking for cycling after I came off my bike and dislocated a finger


    I have regular treats but generally stick to the healthy stuff probably 80-20 , I have developed a green and blacks organic 85% dark chocolate habit



    The key to any success with health/fitness is to be able to maintain it after you have reached it and 8 months on its going fine


    IM NEVER GOING BACK TO THOSE BEFORE PICTURES!

    Hi guys I am not a regular poster here these days , I am real busy and generally post on BB.com which is a great site

    thought I would do a quick update here as it is one of the first sites I ever did post on

    I still follow a fairly 'Paleo' style diet rarely eat rice , pasta, potato's or bread but I tend to stick with IIFYM (If IT Fits Your Macros) for those who may not be familiar with the term


    I am happy to say that it is some 13 months since I hit my goal weight and I haven't gained an ounce back in that time in fact im leaning out a bit more.


    reaching a target is good but maintaining is the key, comfy 30 inch pants at 49! was not something I would have imagined 18 months a ago and a yet it is my daily experience

    I don't even train as much anymore , I do lots of 6-8 power walks and about 2 full body weight circuits a week and it seems to suit me fine, the key to weight management is undoubtably diet and once you master that your most of the way there

    good luck to anyone who reads this post and merry xmas!

    Very inspirational, I work with a lot of blokes, much of them 30 - 50 and not a single one comes close to your physique.

    I take my hat off to you sir.

    P.s. I want to be fit and active by the time my little boy can run around!

    Thanks for the positive comments, I'm currently working towards a vanity goal of having a full 6 pack on my 50th birthday in July!

    I have a 4 pack coming through and estimate about 8 lbs more should do it, but in reality I'm very happy with where I have got to

    Good luck with your goals, if I hit the 6 pack I'll post another picture!

    Wow spacey47!

    I just saw your pics, you look great! I can't believe the change!
    My dear husband looks like you in the first pic, at the beach.
    I so wish he would follow a paleo or primal way of life.
    Paleo since April 2013 for health reasons.
