Hi guys. Throughout most of this current year I've really been putting my nose to the grindstone in an effort to improve my fitness, my weight, and myself in general so I thought I'd share my recent progress with you guys. On the 5th of April this year I weighed the heaviest I have ever weighed at 16st 8lb. Now don't get me wrong I've been fairly heavy since I was around 15 years old and discovered weight training. By around the age of 18 or so I was about 14st with very little body fat and at my young physical prime. Fast forward 5 years and various things have happened; I was diagnosed with epilepsy (resulting in me gaining some unwanted weight via my medication); I ended up meeting the woman I plan to spend my life with and subsequently we had a child (so I started to slow things down due to responsibilities and getting a bit lazy); and I general I let everything slip too much. I was still able to do most of things I've always been able to (long distance running, martial arts practice, hit the weights at the gym) albeit with increasing difficulty and longer recovery times. So anyways back on point. I eased myself back into the gym from around December last year to get myself together and get back into a decent shape. I started weighing myself from April to now so far. I changed my eating habits, drastically reducing my intake of all foods and also changing the amounts of macronutrients I was consuming (the standard less carbs and fats, more proteins thing) but also making sure I wasn't starving myself so I still had my treats here and there. I weighed in today at the gym after my session (I usually weigh in around the same time of day each time and it's always after I finish my session) and I'm currently sitting at 15st 2lb! My goal is to hit somewhere around the 14st 8lb mark but I'm not too fussed as long as I keep feeling great doing what I'm doing! I thought I'd never shift the weight when it was there, it just didn't want to go and to be honest I was being lazy far too much. So I've buckled down, forced my **** into training proper and I'm feeling much better for it. If I can do it, anyone can! Hpe you're all doing well guys and if you have any advice that could help me, feel free to chime in.
