Hi guys, This is my first post after signing up while on holiday in Canada back in June - Sept 07.
Have popped into the forum from time to time (live in New Zealand) to get some tips and try to motivate myself.
Today I accidentally ended up reading a thread by leslian407 who was asking for help, you blokes were awesome!
I have recently lost about 20lbs (of pur fat) and are now at 215lbs. I'm 6ft and still carrying some unwanted weight but am on my way.
Bought a power rack last week an olympic bar and dumb bells today and am trying on my own (have had a fear of gyms and the whole gym scene for years) to get the diet and excercise thing happening.
I definitely have lots to learn and this sight has been great to read.
Definitely not strong with bench only at 176lb including the bar (not even my body weight
)but considering it was only 88lb when i started in May I'm sorta happy.
I'll keep popping in and getting tips, and making my 3 meals 6 smaller ones like i just read.
Thanks again guys, I feel abit more confident knowing there are other newbies out there trying and you big fellas are willing to help out. Hell who knows I might even post again
