I'll jump on this exercise train.
Goal 205lbs by August
My weak link is the wife's good cooking and the nurses always having pot lucks at work!
I have already cut the fountain drinks out. Replace with a nalgene bottle of water. Now to do better at portion control and find a workout regiment for me.
Time to get into Sheep Shape boys! Fall is coming fast.
Glad to have you on board!
Well its been a little over 5 weeks since i Joined the challenge and figure i would post an update...so far I am down only 9 lbs. from my starting 231. I didn't check my BF% this morning, but i am hoping, and betting, it went down as well. Sure doesn't sound like much of a loss, but i guess it does average a little over 1.5lb per week. hope everyone is seeing progress as well, I know i get frustrated when i work my butt off and don't get the results i think i should be getting. Keep up the good work everyone.

Been on this exercise train for a while, Spring of 2012, I was 6' & 245lbs and 25% body fat, by that fall I was down to 180lbs and still in that 18% BF area. Since then I've been doing Insanity and lifting moderate to heavy sets of weights. I'm back up to 198lbs but have dropped the BF to around 15%. Keep pushing guys it's totally doable!!! Diet and Exercise is the only way it works!!
TALL, WIDE and HANDSOME

for the big guys out there, that running hurts. Look at riding bicycles. way less hardship on the knees.
I agree that running is hard on the knees, especially on the big fellers. I am 6'1 and weigh 185lbs, I start running in April and run through September. I mix in a few 5k's and 10k's to keep me motivated. The rest of the year I use the elliptical and bike, it is much easier on your knees and does the cardio trick. I have been working out and staying in shape since I graduated high school. I believe you must make it a lifestyle. You must keep with it year round and you have to give yourself between 45 and 90 minutes four days per week. Once it becomes routine you get crabby if you can't hit the gym or go for a run. Good luck to everyone and power through!
A bad day in the woods is better than a good day at work.
Shoot the best, Shoot PSE!
It will be June 1st Sunday!!! keep up the hard work . Counting the months down guys it will be well worth it. Mark
