Backstory - I used to train, but stopped. Now I am fat, very very asthmatic, borderline diabetic and almost the same age my brother was when he died. Pros- I stopped smoking about 7 months ago and have no desire to go back. I don't drink or do rec drugs any more either. Cons - My asthma is the worst it's ever been, and I even ended up in hospital with it on nebs a couple of weeks ago. I'm 102kg at 174cm, which really is disgustingly fat. The fat is not helping my breathing either. I've never been less confident about my appearance. Short term goals - Get my fat levels down so I'm no longer closer to a pork scratching than a human. Improve my fitness in general and breathing in particular. Start getting a bit of strength back. Stop being a slob! Medium term goals - Get some definition about me, so I get my confidence back. Get more mobility and flexibility. Start having to buy new clothes because my old ones no longer fit. Long term goals - Start looking like a fucking bodybuilder. Be fitter, healthier and stronger than most other people around me. I'm eating clean now, high protein and fats, low carb. Aiming for sub 50g of carbs per day. Already cut out bread, sugar, crisps etc. Feeling a bit shit right now but I know it'll pass. I got back in the gym today, but only for a bit of gentle cardio. I'm back tomorrow for the weights. I'm thinking full body initially, and as I'm weak as a kitten and unsure of my breathing I'll probs stick to machines at first. Comments, insights, piss-taking etc all welcomed! I've got real motivation this time round, the sort you only get when you've never been closer to death and you want to see your kid grow up!
