Smile Starting from Scratch


I am new and starting a weight loss journey, of sorts.

I have gained twenty kilograms (44 pounds) going from 55kg (121 pounds) to 75kg (165 pounds) in nine months.

I was about 3kg (7 pounds) underweight at my weight gain start weight so my goal is to get to 58kg (127 pounds) which is where I feel most comfortable.

I am starting South Beach Diet on the 18th of June (fresh start on a Monday) and have rejoined my gym. I am planning to do three days of cardio and 3 days of strength training - then building up to cardio five days a week (Mon-Fri) and strength three days (Mon, Wed, Fri).

I am really excited, and look forward to getting to know you all

My brother in law had about 40lbs to lose and he did the southbeach diet. It really worked for him. I remember I hadn't seen him in a few weeks and when I finally did see him, I couldn't believe the difference. Good luck on your weight loss journey!
