Hi, wanted to introduce myself

Hi All

I just joined and wanted to introduce myself.

I started on my weight loss journed just over a year ago when I weighed 86kgs (when I was brave enough to step on the scales) and was only just fitting into a size 18 :oops: I am now down to 68kg and a size 10-12. I have about another 5 - 10kgs that I am struggling to get rid of.

I do kickboxing several times a week as well as some weights and running and we eat pretty healthy bar some chocolate now and again :D

Look forward to chatting to you all soon and hope to pick up some good tips :D

Welcome Masm,

Kickboxing is great for weight loss and fitness.

It is also good for building up your confidence which can some times get very low when you're on a weight loss journey.

More people should try kickboxing to lose weight and get fit, but it is something you need a base fitness level for or you should definitely start off slowly until you build your fitness level up - which shouldn't be very long!

If you are going to try kickboxing, go to a proper kickboxing gym. Don't think that just because a personal trainer or gym instructor has a couple of punching mits and a kick bag in his or her toolkit that they will be able to teach you kickboxing.

There are actually some very important techniques to learn and practice, especially if you ever need to use it for self-defense.

On a positive note, the techniques involved are few in number and relatively easy to learn compared to more intricate forms of martial arts so most people get up to speed really quickly.

Welcome again Masm, I look forward to reading about you losing those last few kilos and what works for you.

Ed. :D
