Thanks for looking!

I’m Shevek – anyone who has read The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin will know where I got the name from, if you haven’t read it I’d highly recommend it – one of the best science fiction novels ever written (IMHO of course!)

This blog is all about me losing weight. In June 2006 I hit 20 stone (which is 280 lbs in American), I’m 6’2″ so I was officially Obese. With two kids depending on me I needed to lose the weight or they might be part of a single parent family far too prematurely.

Then I saw a blog entry from Chris Pirillo called 50 Weight Loss Tips and it changed my life. That may sound a bit OTT but its true!

That was nearly 3 months ago and I’ve now lost over 3 stone (44 lbs today, August 29th), I have another 2 stone to go for my final target of 15 stone / 210 lbs.

So read on and find out how I do!
