    So, an introduction is in order.

    Well, I'm a 29 year old college student from germany. I came here since I was unable to find a german forum that was actually well frequented so I'll give it a go here.

    Right now I bring 175kg ( 385lbs ) on my scale. That is not my heaviest, that was at almost 200kg ( 440lbs ).
    I did get a gastic sleeve in late 2013 and back then it droped to 140kg ( 308lbs ).
    Frankly, I feel terrible.

    Around here I am pretty alone at the moment. My mom is the only family in my life and she is sick and of the few friends I have, the most supportive is currently in australia for studying. He also took me to a gym but after he left that became quite uninteressting and boring. Also a bit too far away for going alone, it's almost a 30 minute drive by car.
    Another reason was money, that gym was rather expensive.

    Well, recently I'm kinda "fed up" with all and everything, so I started to take it a bit more serious again.
    Started counting calories, making a food diary, even took the old crosstrainer out of the basement.
    I manage barely more than 10 minutes of what I'd call medium challenge but it's a start.

    What keeps me from succeeding, is going this way alone.
    But I want to succeed. So maybe here I won't be so alone.

    So, what else is there to say...

    Welcome and you're not alone. I am also doing this diet alone, none wanted to go to the Gym with me so what I did? I worked out at home. You can always find a substitute. Hopefully we both would be strong enough to go on our own! Keep reading the progress of others and get yourself motivated.
    I am new here but honestly, I was feeling extremely down few days ago and this place is encouraging me a bit more! So you can do it! Don't give up now. Too soon.
