Advice on starting points? New poster here [+ Pics]

Postby TS7 » Thu Sep 03, 2009 1:42 am

Hi Folks,

New poster here, and have had an intention of losing weight not only for a better tone/body, but for fitness also.
I'll break down some stats just to give you guys an idea of myself :)

Age: 20
censored: Male
Height: 6'0"
Weight: 96kg

I used to be athletic in school, but bad food habits and losing the active lifestyle (eg. being lazy lol) have lead me to put on a significant amount of weight.
Being a student still, I am very limited in funds, and have only walking at my disposal (when I work, I will visit the gym to pay the fees).

At present I do walk here and there, but I feel this has only toned the base of my body. I am quite happy with the bottom half of my body actually, although its somewhat stocky due to the angle of my camera:


A lot of my weight is being deposited to my stomach/gut/midregion, as shown below. My shoulders are fine, but below my chest its an utter embarassment:


I was wondering if you guys could offer any suggestions or tips as to how I can focus on my midregion with my exercise? When I walk I feel the effects on my calves and believe they are getting toned.

suck your stomache in when you walk, and if you can try and tense each oblique as you step
