Hello! So I was thinking about it for a few months now.
I did a lot of reading and I have educated myself cause I know how much stupid questions about diet and workout could annoy some of you
I don't want to be like every other beginner and I hope, that everything with my diet and workout is okay, so I can avoid wasting your time with my questions.
So, my thread title is: "I'm changing my life TODAY!", but in reality I intend to start working out from tomorrow.
However, today is a very important day for me as I made a decision about finally starting out my fitness adventure, that I hope will last forever
Truth is, that I'm really feeling bad about my body and I don't want to feel like this ever again.
I am 5'5" and I weigh 172 pounds. That's a really a lot... I feel so obese, that I actually have some minor depressions that come and go.
I feel awful with myself. I feel unattractive to men. I also want to point out, that I only had one boyfriend in my life and it was 5 years ago, when I was 17 years old.
Now I'm 23 years old and I really just want to change my life, because I feel like I can't continue to live like this anymore.
World is so big and beautiful and I want to give my life a meaning. I know that working out and getting in shape is not a remedy for all troubles in life, but at least I want to get closer to so called "happiness", which is something, that I haven't felt for a really long time. I don't want to brag to you about all of my problems, but to be honest I have nobody to talk to in real life.
So, getting back to weight loss story - I want to lose 30 pounds. I feel like this will be enough to make me feel better about myself.
I know, that I won't be skinny with just 30 pounds less, but this is the first milestone I have set for myself. Once I achieve it, I will aim for something even more challenging!
I was never skinny in my life, but I hope that I will be able to experience this feeling at least once
I will admit, that by reading some of the topics on this forum I have really gathered a lot of knowledge about workout for females and bodybuilding overall.
I want to thank you for this as generally other bodybuilding forums are focused on men's physics only.
The diet I'm going to follow equals to 2200 kcal. As for workout I chose 3x Full Body Workout with higher - the very one from this forum.
I think this is the best approach in my case. I'll be cutting my calories by 10% every two weeks and I'll add some cardio in a month from now.
I plan to lose 30 pounds in 4 months. I believe this is doable
I hope I can achieve my goals!
Thank you for reading this and wish me success!
