I do not know where to begin, but feel that I need to write this. My best friend since childhood is shredz who is on this board. He had introduced me to this forum and I would periodically look through it. At first I thought that this forum was a waste of time. I began, for god only knows why reading every post. I could not believe just how much information was being processed here on a daily basis, and the thing that blew me away the most was the way that everyone complements peoples progress.
I dont know why exactly Im writing this, however I feel my first post should explain a little about me. I am 5'10" and I would suggest over weight. Approximately 2 weeks ago, after reading and reading on this forum, I became inspired by shredz, my best friend and the way that he has dedicated his life to body building.
I decided that I would weigh myself and begin my LIFE STYLE CHANGE. I weighed in at 210lbs, I would say mostly body fat, fitting in to my 38" work pants snug.
Shredz put me on a diet, and diet I have begun. I have lost 12lbs in the last two weeks, my old 36" pants are fitting loser and I feel great. I eat a great diet, and have begun crazy amounts of cardio as well as weight trainning.
I guess the real reason I am writing this is because I just came from the gym. My hole life, I never thought that I would get vains in my forearms. (to me that is the greatest look), however when I was doing my workout, I noticed vains beginning to bulge on my forearms. Today was the first day that I actually felt that I was bettering myself.
I know this is my first reply, and I hope that I dont upset anyone, but I just wanted to thank all of you. I know you dont know me, however reading your posts over the last few months, I feel that I am learning bits and pieces about each of you. Thanks Sredz for being my best friend and helping me transform my lifestyle into a healthy beginning.
