    Are you sure Welterweight would be a healthy weight for you? I ask this because reading through your original thread it was some time ago when your weight was this low.

    Reading through this and your original thread it seems as if you overcomplicate things and make too many excuses.

    If you take some time to read through the nutrition thread on here it could help you a lot. I was in a bad state a couple of years ago mentally and physically after reading that thread I went from 15st to 13st with no exercise.

    From my experience when I started eating properly and educated myself on the affects of alcohol I had a lot more control, gorging myself at Christmas and other special occasions doesn't have the same appeal now I am more in control.

    If you combine good nutrition with a bit of cardio to start off I'm sure will see positive results.

    I'll have a read of the nutrition thread, thanks.

    I had a check weigh-in just after I bumped this thread and was 13st 8lbs..... lighter than I was thinking.

    Got weighed after the gym today and was 12st 7lbs..... after a monster session, so really I'm about 12st 10lbs or so.

    My diet is alright now, no junk food and I'm eating little and often which has helped get rid of cravings.

    Can tell that I've lost some, my clothes fit better and I'm more alert first thing on a morning.

    Thinking about it more, because I'm so thick set a weight of around 11 to 11 1/2st is more realistic and healthy..... and instead concentrate on basic fitness.

    A lad who I used to play with showed me some core strength exercises to work on which have helped and I'm spending time in the pool too, before I was just running my arse off, lifting loads of weights and generally getting fed up and wasn't looking forward to training.
