    In March this year, I stepped on the scale here at home and almost lost it. I had finally reached the point I was dreading, I was over 100 kilos/220 pounds in weight which is pretty damned bad seeing as I'm just around 175 centimetres tall. :yuk: After five minutes of panic, I sent a text-message to a friend and asked him to help me get started with going to the gym. :zombie:

    March 14th, I had my last piece of candy, at that point, I was at 103 kilos/227 pounds.

    March 16th, I went to the gym for the first time in my life. (well, been a couple times with school but that was never organized at all so it just meant dicking around) :Smokin:

    Since then, I've tried to work out at least three times a week at the gym and then taking a few walks, plus giving up candy, soda, ice-cream, chips, popcorn, alcohol, all that stuff.

    I was forced to take a 5-week break from the gym a month or so ago due to a couple nasty colds and an ear-infection but I increased my number of walks instead. I've kept to the no-crap diet going for over to 16 weeks too, which I'm extremely proud of, especially seeing as I had a birthday in May and I only had a couple of strawberries. :lol:

    Weighed myself this morning, so far I'm down to 84 kilos/185 pounds which feels fantastic! I'm feeling a lot more confident overall and I'm still not done. Losing 19 kilos/41 pounds in 17 weeks is something I'm counting as one of my biggest accomplishments and I'm extremely glad that I "put my foot down" at 100 rather than when/if I had been around the "Biggest Loser"-area. I've learnt that losing weight isn't that hard to do, as long as you stop thinking about it and just f'ing do it! :headbang:

    Man, that's awesome! Well done :) I could do with losing a few kilos myself... I think my grown-up metabolism has finally kicked in or something 'cos I'm growing a secret keg...

    Cheers dude. :)

    Do eet, it's not that hard. Get yourself a tiny-ish mp3-player (Creative Zen Mosaic works awesome for me), put some tracks on there that get you pumped and head down to the local gym! :) It'll work wonders for your mood. ;)

    I should probably gain a couple of pounds:ill: Only 67 kilos and 185cm is not good, especially since I play bandy

    Also, I don't understand the fact that women always want more, yet they rather want a six pack then a whole barrel

    Thats great man keep up the good work!

    I was in a similar situation after being at uni doing nothing but eating pretty much for two years. I'll admit I didn't get up to as high as 100 but I may have touched 90kg. But ever since I started working I have been active and been eating at proper times. It all helps believe it or not. I will also admit I had a good bit of help from a prolonged gut infection last year but since that's cleared up I've managed to keep my weight at about 70/71 kg (just over 11 stone for us British folk). The effect on your mood and your ability to get up and go is amazing too.
