Been browsing the forum for about a week and finally got the guts to register!
Im a 24 year old male, muscly but also very overweight! So much so im beginning to really worry about my health and for the first time in my life Im actually getting puffed out walking around to the shops, up stiars, etc! Rather worrying especially at my age!
So I've really decided to do something about it, my first real effort at weightloss.
I will give you a short introduction of myself:
I am 130kgs, 5'11, the heaviest I have ever been. I high school I lost alot of weight but due to dubious reasons but I put it all back on about 3 years ago when I was diagnosed with depression... all I did was eat eat eat and drink ALOT and hated leaving the house. My whole life from then on has been dictated by how I percieve myself to look like to other people - quite gross, though most of my friends say to me "Youre so good looking!.... you know, if you werent fat (!!!!!)". I even got a night job (I work in press/editing etc) so I didnt have to be seen in daylight...sad state of affairs, huh ?
I have currently relocated cities within AUS to try and change some lifestyle habits for good (namely smoking and excessive eating whenever I get bored or emotional). I have started walking to work and walking home which is about 4/5 kilometres each way, which I think is a fairly good workout for someone who hasnt excercised for 4 years!
I joined this site to meet other people in my position, people seeking weight loss and just improvement of general health both physical and mental. I also joined this site in the hopes that someone can turn me on to an eating plan that I can follow through the week ? Is there one online ? I got infuriated with google pointing me to some crappy diet pill websites! Also if someone can show me some information on when to eat, how long between eating and exercise, etc, etc.
It is my hope to lose AROUND 20 kgs by February 1st, I wonder if thats even possible though!
Thank you for your time! Any feedback will be recieved greatly!
Wish me well!
