G'day from a noob!

Postby I'm Simon » Mon Oct 20, 2008 4:25 pm

Hi all,

Name is Simon (duh), back in 2006 I topped out at 112kg's and then decided to do something about it, between May & October 06' I went fron 112kg's to 87kg's and then finally settled around 90kg's (I have a large frame). Anyhoo....over the last 2 years I have put 14kg's back on and it is time to shed the excess before summer arrives. I was a member at another forum during that time and I found it really supportive, I am hoping that this one is the same during my journey.

I will be using Optifast to "kickstart things" for a couple of weeks and it will then be back to sensible diet and exercise, looking forward to chatting with some of you nice folk.

Thanks for the welcome's :) I am going to start a weigh-in thread of my own so that I can keep track of what I am doing, it will hopefully keep me motivated too.
