    Hello Guys,

    My name is Tim, 29 years old from Hertfordshire

    I’ve always been overweight and I’ve always been able to carry it well until the last year or so.

    My knees crack, I get out of breath real easy. I’m 300 pounds and really want to lose this weight before something serious happens to me.

    I’ve really let myself go in this last year. All I do is sit in front of my computer all day, working away 10 -12 hours a day and HAD no consideration of my health.

    It’s been a year since I’ve had a cigarette which I feel is a big accomplishment in itself. I was a heavy smoker for 15 years, and yes, I’m 29, and I’m so proud of that alone. I still remember how I was coughing and wheezing in bed which would keep me up all night. Never, never will I smoke again.

    I’m now on a mission to lose this weight, and I know that I can do it. I’ve never been so determined in my life.

    I’m doing my own specific diet of the following:
    50% Protein – 300 Grams
    30% Fats – 80 Grams
    20 Carbs 120 Grams
    With a total of 2400 calories a day.

    I’m following a program called P90X, probably nobody has heard of it as it seems to be an American thing, but was recommended to me through a friend.

    I’m hoping to meet some friends here that are in a similar position as me.

    Hi Tim,

    That's great, giving up smoking must have been hard.

    Starting with p90x, thats a hard program, good luck with it.

    I have the 10 minute trainer program, made by the same guy, which is a lot easier. I had a long hard look around before I choose it. I am very weary about hurting myself seeing as i'm so out of shape and over weight.

    Good luck with your weight loss and exercise program.:)
