What have you got planned to do between now and the end of 2012
...and how long did it take for you to get up the courage to post? srs question

It's only my opinion, not the only truth

A bit of cardio, good nutrition with plenty of healthy food and a decent weight training routine and you will pack muscle on that frame and lose fat in no time.

Just stick to it and work hard and you will see great results. Good luck :)

Also don't say things like "who knows where I will get to". Positive thinking and a clear idea of where you want to get to will help you create the will to do what you need to do!

"Think of it like fish and chips, its great to have tomato sauce but with out the fish and chips....well your just eating sauce. Do you sometimes go to the f&c shop and murder a few rip top watties and expect to get full?"

Took me a while to pluck up the courage to post.

Would like to be at around 90kg with 12-15% bodyfat by the end of the year.

Well, good on you for doing it. You'll be pleased you did post Before photos when you've got some Afters to compare them to in a year's time. I look forward to seeing them!

Sing out if you need any help. :nod:

Some wise person once said to me "you can't train away bad nutrition", first thing to do is sort out how you are going to eat your 5-6 meals per day, time frames between each meal etc. Get it all committed to paper and it will make your progress speedier. Look forward to hearing how you go. If you need any ideas on nutrition or anything else, don't be afraid to ask, there are plenty of peeps with great ideas on this site.

You can dream of success, or take steps to succeed.

repped for posting pics mate ... takes a lot of courage to put yourself out there. Your a blank canvas - get some good nutrition advice and post up a regular journal. You'll reach your goal through consistancy provided your desire is big enough.

Good luck.

You are so right. Getting back into a training regime was the easy bit. Shifting from 1 meal a day to 5 was not. I must say, however, that I have been eating 5 smaller meals a day for a week now and have noticed a considerable increase in energy levels, I can train harder and longer, and I have lost 2 kg.

I will be starting a journal of my routing, diet and results with pics ( public accountability and all) shortly.

Thanks all for your advice and support.

I can relate to that. I shifted from 1 meal to 7. Been at it for 2 days now and feel like I'm going to explode.

Can definitely see a difference! :nod:

Keep it up! :clap:

All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act out their dream with open eyes, to make it possible.

90kg @ 15% by the end of the year is a soft goal mate, looks like you could easily trump that!

6 Weeks in. 90kg now, down from 94kg. Have been following a new routine for the past two weeks focusing on squats and deadlifts and loving every minute of it.
