Default New Year's Resolution

I hate to make the most cliche resolution but I am trying to drop some pounds and get back into shape. On the 1st the wife and I trashed the junk food in our apartment and we are both committing to healthier diets. I quit drinking and other things years ago, quit dipping over a year ago, and quit smoking about 10 months ago. Now its time to quit being fat

In the past I lost about 50lbs on a very strict diet with lots of exercise. Problem was I could not maintain the weight loss because the diet was so strict. My goal is to work out on a consistent basis and eat much healthier. Hopefully I can make this a lifestyle change rather then a fad with quick results. I want to lose 40 pounds by the end of this year and greatly increase my physical fitness. I weighed in on the 1st and I was 251.2

I started my exercise regimen yesterday with some walking and running. Joined the gym today and did some cardio and light lifting. Felt pretty good to back in the gym!! I will keep you folks posted.

I picked up a new pair a few months ago. My wife had a coupon for some place in BR and I got a nice pair of tennis shoes for 30 bucks.

I'm going to do the same. I'm not doing any of those "fad diets" but rather I'm changing the way I eat and starting to excercise. I figure if I just eat healthier and eat less the weight will come off and stay off alot better than just losing alot at one time.

I used the patch which helped a lot. The cravings are not bad at all after a while. The patch helps curb those initially strong cravings.

2 weeks into the "new me" and i feel good. besides bn super tired every morning... but i do have more energy during the day.
with my crazy work schedule i work out @ diff times every day. but i always work out.
1 hr cardio then pump iron. im basically doin the same lifts i did with college football, just alot less weight.
was seriously sore the first week but now im good to go.
i actually played in a alumni b-ball game last nite.....didnt get tired. played abut 30 of the 40 minutes. really felt good to not get winded and to b able to run up and down the court. also my knees didnt hurt at all and are feeling fine today.
and after 4 knee reconstructions, thanks collee footbal, that is always a good thing.

o yea ...i still got my jump shot. 9 for 16....booooyaaaahhhhh

Dipped when I was younger, quit when my gums were receeding badly. Well < the front 2 teeth came out a few years ago because there was nuthin to hold them in place. Even after having grapghs done to save em.
