I'm new to this site, I found it recently when looking for something else. What a find!? All these sources of support!
I'm 187cm tall, and to be honest I'm not too overwieght (around the 90kg mark). I am quite active and have been all my life. I represented the country in Soccer as a Junior, and recently have been playing in high divisions of Victorian leagues.
I turn 24 in a few months, however recently little things have been changing on my body which I want to stop now. In the last 2 years I've put on about 10kg in weight, and i'm starting to carry more and more injuries.
Things that never used to affect me are starting to be a pain, and i'm starting to feel my age, rather than being an indestructible teen.
My metabolism has definatly slowed, gone are the days of powering through 3 Large McDonalds meals a week without any change in my weight. Gone are the days of being able to take a few months off sport, and then jump back into it as I began.
Mt current fat percentage is roughly around 18% (I haven't checked it recently), and my aim is to get that down to around 12-13% by mid-year.
I look forward to posting on this site, and to your support. In return, I look forward to sharing my knowledge/experiences with you all, and offering my support in return.
