Kill the stress and fat before they kill you

Hi I'm Leszek.

I would like to share with you my experiences in weight loss, increase vitality, improve motivation and humor in everyday life by increasing activity.

Some history

Last year, before I started to train running I weighed more than 100 kg (more than 220 pounds). My BMI index was 29 – that means I was overweight. Additionally I was overloaded at work and I was destroyed by stress. I thought how to lose weight and change my life.

I made decision that I want to help to myself.
Fortunately my colleagues from the office asked me to take a part in some running competition (between companies). I agreed… and It was the beginning.

The decision is one thing, while the second is to start training and self-motivation.
Believe me, it was not easy but the support of friends and desire to change my habits an appearance and mood too, meant that I started and work consequently.

Now I would like to share my progress in runnin and lose weight, with all those who also want to change.
I’m not a professional so each step in the pursuit of the goal is real experience from which everyone could benefit.

Today I am 86kg (189.6 lbs) and feel very well. I think I became addicted to activity on a fresh air.
Later on I will put some pictures like "before and after".

Wow well done you not only for the weight loss but getting active.

I love the gym. I started running and I enjoyed it but my chest caves and it soon turns from enjoyment to frustration because I couldn't go further ... I now have a road bike but recently due to a challenge also I have taken up walking and although the time it's taking up isn't really what I need right now (there are forfeits in this challenge so I'm allowing it lol) I am actually enjoying it enough that although I won't do as much when it ends I think it will get me outdoors.

I noticed due to the number of posts you have your picture was put to moderation. Would you like me to add it here on your original post?
