Hey there folks
My name's Mike, and I'm a 27yr old graphic designer and student (returning to fulltime study sucks, take it from me!) living in Melbourne. Yada yada, walks along the beach, candlelit dinners, bla bla.
I'm packing what I'd say is about 15kg too much, and would really like to drop it! I've never been slim, so this isn't 15kg I've put on in recent times—it's been a companion for most of my life. Breaking up will be difficult, but I think it's the right thing to do!
Wow, melodrama rules!
So anyway. I'm not going to be going through any special regimented dietary changes, I'll just be making an effort to eat healthier, keep my daily calories under 1500-1800, and go for regular jogs and try to keep up some regular working out at home.
My ultimate aim is to lose centimetres rather than kilos. I think going purely be weight can be a bit deceiving, since muscle gain may be involved and of course, muscle weighs more than fat! So for me, I'll just be measuring my stomach and chest and so forth, and going off that. *thinks he knows so much, jeez*
So hopefully this forum will be a continuing source of inspiration and motivation for me!
