Milestone 6.9

Category: UncategorizedMarcus @ 10:38 pm

Definitely on track with the pre-xmas weight loss. Tonight on the scales I was 85.8 kg or 13 stone 6 lbs, being a total loss of 48 kgs or 7 stone 8 lbs over a bit less than 3 years and the last stone in the last 6 weeks. Just one more kilo to go and that’s it. As I’m very close to my final target I thought it was about time for a new photo, as well as comparing it to April 2005 when I first got into martial arts and May 2008 just before the bike accident. From lard bucket through Thai boxing and finally MMA. Less curved, bigger muscles, and a much more intense look in the eyes. You probably wouldn’t want to get a punch off those MMA gloves either. I’m going to work on getting down to 84 kg for next week, but 85 will do if I don’t get there.

    I think epilating to lose an ounce is probably going a bit OTT…

    And you’re tucking your elbows in a bit more, too 😀

      Just after that photo was taken I demonstrated how you can drop down on one knee and go for a takedown from that position. If it wasn’t posed for the photo I’d probably have my hands higher up.

      Found out last night that my MMA place are having another show in March next year. I’ll have a chat with my instructor and find out more. If he agrees, I could be having my first ever MMA cage fight then. Of course it’ll be novice level: you won’t get me doing UFC just yet.
