Hi guys and thanks for the welcome
I'm not sure that coffee does that to me, when I was younger I drank heaps and was very skinny...but since I have given up smoking and got older I drink de-caf anyway as any thing with caffiene after 4pm for me I dont sleep a wink!
Thanks for the welcome I truly need help to do this...Ihave tried every diet, diet pill, diet drink there is going...it is totally emotional for me and I just dont know what to do...I dont eat take way, cakes, etc...since I quit smoking I ate heaps put on 20 kilos and now it just wont budge I dont go up (luckily) but I dont go down either...exercise 3 times per week too..
I'm at a loss
I know how you feel on that one...except I don't smoke and rarely drink alcohol...I have grown a taste for coffee [but the REAL stuff, not the instant crap] but don't have it too often.
Coffee isn't as bad as some people think. Sure it isn't the best, but it does keep your heart rate going because of the caffeine and extra heart and energy burning means that your body is working a little bit harder to lose a bit of weight...or rather, fat.
I'm a sucker for persistance. As crap as I may feel about being overweight at times, I work twice as hard in terms of exercise to get over that hump.
I find that the best time to work out is when you feel like poo [whether it be physically or mentally].
Since being at the gym and working out a lot, I haven't lost weight, nor have I really lost any dress sizes but I have become more fit than I ever was, more flexible than ever and stronger as well. This means that not only am I bulking the muscle, but also toning and defining as well.
I remember one season of baseball, I couldn't even run across the oval [about 400 metres] without stopping for breath, but by the end of the season, I could run around the oval twice [and that was all without say 3/4 months]. Now is a bit of a different story, but I'm sure if I had a place to run, I just might take it up. And no, not the treadmill thanks, there's more impact on those machines than running on gravel...not good for the back.
Anyway, I best be off now...
Good luck with everything!!!
