Hey guys!
I'm only new to this forum, looking for inspiration and motorvation like so many others here. I am 22 weighing in at 87kg. The heaviest I have ever been and boaderline obese as I found out today. This has really shocked me into action as I always took for granted the fact that at 22 I would be at my prime, however this is not the case.
I started putting on weight when I left high school at 57kg. I stopped playing pro level sport, I got my license and stopped walking and riding everywhere and I got my first full time job and being silly I just kept eating whatever I desired assuming my metabolism would keep everything in check, I was only young after all. As I said, silly. So here I am now, 5 years later wondering where my abs went! My biggest temptation is Coke and chocolate. These teamed with the past 5 years of sheer laziness will be my biggest hurdle. I also have just completed a course and in order to be employed my fitness needs to increase dramatically. Not to mention the job involves being in a bathing suit infront of strangers all day long eeps! I have more than enough reasons to lose the weight, I hope they are enough to get me off my ever expanding butt and start dropping these pesky kilos!

Hi Beetle78

It's better to lose weight when you're young rather than wait until it's almost too late, and the bonus is that your efforts will help set you up on a path of fitness and good health for the rest of your life. Ditch the coke and chocolate - they're nothing but trouble!
