Hi, I was referred here by Vermillion. I guess I should lead off with some background info
I’m 6’1" and 200lbs over the course of about 3 years I lost 65 lbs but I gained back about 20lbs in the last year. I lost the weight with (the dreaded) slimfast and an exercise bike. So yeah, I’m skinny-fat.
My kneecaps dislocate when I bend them so my quadriceps are severely atrophied, the mechanics of my knees mean my quadriceps aren’t used at all. They have gotten a bit worse recently, probably due to my exercise bike riding. I’ve started to do some straight leg raises to try and strengthen the quads but it’s pretty strenuous and leg extensions are impossible.
Ok, enough of the life story, I read on a productivity website that the best way to stay motivated is to set a goal that almost sounds impossible to you. I want to get fit & tan and have a photoshoot, I’ve got no self-esteem even though I have girls saying I’m hot on almost a daily basis, I still feel like the fat-kid who was teased all his life.
What would be a reasonable time frame for this?
