Hey there everyone, ill cut straight to the chase.. Im a 22 year old guy from the UK, Scotland to be exact and after years of being "depressed" with my weight and being "obese" as the papers like to call it. (Obese - Rather Overweight) Heres my measurements - im 6foot tall and weigh in at 21 stone (roughly - 294lbs) So ive decided that i NEED to do something about my weight, to become slim, fit, healthy and so i dont have any medical problems early on in life such as heart problems or whatever. So, what i have been doing so far is "watching what i eat"..which basically comes down to, not eating loads of sweets and crisps. Drinking alot of water everyday, having regular meals and doing around 35mins exercise a day. (the exercise i do, is usually 10min stretches, 10min doing weights, 15mins doing sit ups) So i was wondering if anyone has any qualifications in weight loss or fitness etc..if they could help me out. Also, even if youve not got actual qualifications, then feel free to help me out with tips and stuff like that. Id appreciate as much help as possible. I have a sort of "date" in my head i would like be atleast lost quite alot of weight by and be looking good. Because at the end of June next year, im going on holiday with friends for the first time ever...and i want to be able to just stroll around the holiday destination/beaches etc with just shorts on and have a nice body. So, i hope people will want to help me on here as its going to be a life changing experience finally sticking a plan to change my life.
