    I was that fat kid back in 12th grade.

    And then my brother's marriage was fixed 3 months later. People looked at me and said, "Nope! Not going to happen! or " You're not that good at it!". Well to hell with that, I got my lazy *** off and stopped using the lift to my flat (15th floor) I got home climbing those stairs...

    Working On Weight Loss

    Alright so this is very personal for me and embarrassing to say the least. I'm a 20 year old male and have a weight issue. I'm well aware I am not alone in this area, but I am ashamed that my weight has gotten so out of hand. In July, after I met a guy, I decided that I wanted...

    I'm eating healthier

    and gradually building up a workout routine but it's kinda rough. I hate exercise and love food, but I feel so proud when I see results. At the end of this, I feel like I'll know so much more about myself, and just feel great physically and confidence wise. Wish me luck!

    Although I use and sale isagenix products I

    also eat one good meal per day. For anyone that likes fresh vegetables here's an easy one. 1 cucumber,1 tomato,1 bell pepper ,1 red onion, fresh cilantro and 1 jalapeño pepper (optional) and 2-3 tablespoons of lemon juice. Goes great with anything. Bon appetite!!

    So I joined a gym this week.

    I've been going everyday so far. I think I've figured out a pretty good workout plan but the thing I'm still struggling with is setting up a meal plan. I'm a vegetarian and I can't eat anything with a lot of salt in it. Do any of you have any advice? :)
