  1. Second update: Week 15+1day (afternoon): 104KG / 22.2% I'm a lot happier, still struggling with which direction to take it, but this is encouraging so I'm going to continue slogging away at it. Can do 3/4 of a chin up now (So it should improve considering I have to lift 4KG less, haha) and I'm going to start some personal training at the gym. Thanks NF for putting up with my long winded and whiny posts, I'll be sure to keep you appraised of the situation as it develops. EDIT I had a good read of Life after 30 days and actually went out and ate a pizza (gluten free of course), glorious! That pi
  2. Update: Week 13 (afternoon): 108KG / 22.4% No weight loss but that's no surprise considering I haven't done any exercise for five days, but by gosh have I been hungry... Ate a wholemeal chicken salad roll today because there wasn't anything else available in the short time I had, feel a bit disappointed in myself really, but hey... Thirteen weeks with no grain isn't too bad. Body weight percentage hasn't shifted much, not sure where to go from here except to try at least a 30min cardio workout per day, will let you know how that goes.
  3. Cheers for the reply again Shmikey, highly appreciated! I'll have a look for some steel-cut oatmeal and add that to the breakfast smoothie but I'll admit I'm a little apprehensive as I've avoided grains and sugar for twelve and a bit weeks now. EDIT Thanks for the kind words Sco, I'm really trying to build strength (That pull up... One day!) and lose body fat. I'll take the advice from both of you regarding listening to my body, especially after last night I feel a bit worn out. /EDIT
  4. Thank you for the reply Shmikey. Yeah I've not used the weight machines for quite a while, at least twelve and a bit weeks since I started on the Angry Birds routine which is all based on using your body weight; Squats, pushups, inverted rows/bent over rows/pull ups and planking. I'm also currently unable to perform a full pull up, but my aim is (as Steve put it so nicely) One. Freaking. Pull up. Half way so far, but that's better than the no way when I first started. EDIT I suppose what I'm really after is these two things: 1) How do you know when you're doing too much (ie. Can I go back to f
  5. Greetings and salutations! First of all, I'm not used to asking for help in any fashion but I need some. Apologies in advance for the wall of text that follows. I've always been overweight and kept all this sort of things as private as possible so this is quite a bit different than what I'm used to. After countless "New Year Resolutions" (Most weren't made on January 1st, but they may as well have been considering how long they lasted), "Diet pills", "weight loss shakes" that met with minor success each time, I had a look in the mirror and did not like what I saw, at all. To top it off, my par
