Brisbane guy joining for the motivation :D

Postby snuffy » Thu Nov 06, 2008 8:46 pm

Hi All,

I'm 155KG and live in Brisbane, I'm a network engineer and have been working far to much and my body has suffered from it, bad food and not enough exercise has given me 50KG in the last couple of years.
I'm not afraid of the work (read: exercise) and diet change but i get stressed out at work and use this stress as an excuse to stop eating right and exercising, But I've changed roles at work recently and no longer have long hours and piles of stress on me and am determined to lose the weight and develop good habits!

So I've joined this site to help keep me motivated!!!

Hope to see you around!

Regards
Snuffy

Hi - Welcome to the forum! Sounds like you've made a great start. Usually, we all know what to do, it's just the "how" and the motivation that's the problem. Re-engineering our lives, like changing our jobs is a huge step to take (a really committed one!). So congratulations on starting towards a healthier lifestyle! Keep us posted!

Good luck with your weight loss goals.

Welcome!

It looks like you're willing to do what needs to be done, and that is the biggest hurdle to overcome!

See you 'round.

Hey :D Welcome and Good Luck. Stress does have a major impact doesn't it - you made me realise how important it is for me to try and avoid stressful situations. Thanks. :wink:

Sorry for the late reply but welcome snuffy! You've definately come to the right place for motivation.

Stick with it, it sounds like you know exactly what to do - you just need persistance.....and us to hound you about it!

All the best! :mrgreen:
