Can not delay any longer

Recommended Posts



I am Male, 22 years old, 185cm tall and weigh 110kg.


I have slowly and steadily been conquered. Over the last couple of years I have gained a lot of weight. It happened so slowly that I did not notice it until it was starting to take over my life.

I noticed it a couple of months back, when my clothes started to not fit me anymore, and my confidence has been slowly eaten away.


I have been reading a lot of books on self-improvement, and have been doing better in school and socially because of it. But I noticed that part of my motivation for learning guitar, improving my programming skills and other things, was that I could do these things instead of losing weight.

My weight also affect my confidence, and I hate looking at myself in the mirror now.

Recently, I have started to feel pain in my lower back, and a very sharp pain in my shoulderblade. I am terrified that I have permanently damaged my body, now my fear is driving me.

With something as pervasive as my own physical condition, I have been a great fool to neglect it from the moment it became apparent.


My goals

  • Remove the pain
  • Lose weight, bring me down to below 90kg
  • Never go back to what I am now

I have not listed improve confidence, as I hope this is a corollary of losing weight.


After reading Rules of The Rebellion, I knew this was the right place to come.

Rule #3 especially excited me, it reminded me of Chaplin's speech in The Great Dictator.




I hope to make great progress together with all of you.

Hey! Welcome!  What kind of program are you looking to start off your weight loss??  I totally get the slow gain that creeps up on you until BAM there it is, but don't worry, it comes off, especially if you hang around the rebellion :)
