Hey Hey

Postby shedthemkgs » Mon Dec 08, 2008 9:17 am

Hey Guys,

So what a life it has been...
I shall introduce myself, Anthony is the name, most call me Ant, but whatevs, I'm easy.
Well... I currently weigh 112.8kgs, most couldn't tell by looking at me, but tis the truth.
My heaviest, well the heaviest that I weighed myself at was 133.5kgs... So I've come a fair way, but boy has it been a battle. I was never a fat kid, it wasn't until highschool that I started packing on the kilos. I was always in the "popular" group at school, so it wasn't a matter of depression, just kind of fell into it, well truth be told, it fell into me:)
I didn't really start worrying about my weight until my last year of school, I started walking/jogging to school. As with all weightloss I didn't notice a difference, although those around me did...you know how that goes.
During my first year out of school (I'm 20 by the way) I started being serious about my weight loss, was going to the gym everyday, was being semi-healthy with my diet and as you tend to do when you start loosing weight, I lost focus.
In that same year, I went on a holiday to New Zealand, spent about 3 months there. During this time was when I started to get serious, I lost about 10kgs while I was over there. So I came back to Aus and guess what...I put it all back on!
Lets skip forward a few months...It was about September and I thought "censored IT" I wasn't happy with my life, so I decided to make the move to NZ, I ended up living there for a year (I have family there so I wasn't on my own)
When I was over there I weighed myself for the first serious time (133.5kgs) was the result. I spent a few months bumming around, working and enjoying life. Then I started to get serious again and was jogging (yes jogging, not walking fast) for about 40 minutes a night, I was eating toast for breky, coleslaw and ham for lunch and having a normal dinner (meat and veg, curries, that sort of thing), I ended up at about 111.3kgs (somwhere around there) before I came back to Aus. I was so happy with myself, even though I knew that I had a hell of a long way to go, I was proud. Coming back to Aus was funny because everyone was freaked out when they saw me! Thinking that I was my younger, much slimmer brother.
So here I am now, I have been back in Aus for over a year now (during this time I put all of my weight back on...but also lost it, I'm almost back to what I was when I left NZ)
At the moment I'm walking/jogging for just over an hour of a night time and I'm feeling great. But have realised that it is time to get serious and start to kick some fatty boomba arse! :)
I am thinking about using my gym membership for the first time in a while and hitting it up for about 3 hours of an eveing, 5 days a week. Going for a job on weekends.
I don't eat junk food, might have pizza for dinner with the family on a fri or sat night, but apart from that, take-away and junk food are not something i'm keen on...at all.
My diet (i'm not on a diet) consists of a bowl of "healthy" cereal for breky (bran/special k/ that sorta thing) An apple for morning tea, 2 sandwiches for lunch (ham or chicken or whatever meat is left over from dinner:) and dinner is the same as usual, meat and veg, most nights have salad with it.
A friend at work was pretty much the reason that I jumped on here, because he knew that I was feeling a little lost. SO HERE I AM:)
The workout routine that I think I'm thinking of going ahead with is as follows;

1.5-2 hours on the treadmill
.5 hours on the X-Trainer
.5 hours doing light weights including push-ups, sit-ups and crunches, and those things on the bench where you lean forward, I call them chest-ups but have no idea what they are called lol!

So, any advice would be wicked! And thanks for hearing my story! censored Just realised how much I had typed!
Ant

Lol, g'day ant. I'm exactly where you started right now, and you're now at where my goal is. 3 hours training 5 nights a week is a huge effort though, you'd have to be eating a fair amount to balance out all the excercise!

You haven't mentioned what you're aiming for though?

In saying that though, I'm kinda thinking that once I hit the 90's i'll have a better idea of what my goal is...

Understood. Similarly, when I hit 110 I'll be re-assessing my goal. I'm 110 in my avatar there, and I would be totally happy with that, but suprisingly to me, it's still well overweight... So for health reasons I'll decide the action from there. Few bridges to cross first! How tall are you for aiming at 80kg?

I'm 6' So I'm not sure if it is realistic or not...
Dude I am almost at your weight of 110 and I look nothing like that. I guess there is a lot of loose skin...hope I can tighten it up

I was 6'4 in that photo though, so I have a bit of height on you, and was never anymore than 120, so I never dealt with loose skin... something I'm not looking forward to now that i'm at 135...

Don't think my boss has noticed...yet!
How much water should we be drinking a day? I mean...all I drink is water, maybe a glass of OJ or fizzy (rarely) with dinner but I've heard that too much water isn't good...

6 glasses at minimum (don't know the millage though) I've been going 3L or more a day lately, and noticed no adverse effects at all (noticing the weight loss though!)

Yeah figured it was something like that. I do about 7 600ml bottles a day...only really because you feel so much better when you are not flooding your body with soft drinks and censored.
