36 year old disabled Vet. I have always been in good shape never been above 12% bf. I have always believed in the bodybuilders lifestyle. (have you ever seen a fat bodybuilder?) About 4 years ago I started feeling sick with about 40 different symptoms, one of witch was very rapid weight gain. I gained so much weight so quickly I had to quit my 100K a yr job maneging a fitness club for the largest chain in America. I loved my job cause I got to help people reach their goals, but my boss and co workers gave me such a hard time about my weight I became depressed and work was miserable. about a year later I finally went to the Dr to find out on top of already have back problems and migraines that I had several autoimmune diseases that where shutting down my adrenal systems one by one. It took almost a year to get meds right, still not feeling real great but just couldn't stand being fat any more. Lost 49 since March 30 more to go. Now that you know why I am here you wont ever hear any excuses come of my fingers. I know what I need to do, know how to do it.

Do I have to change EVERYTHING about myself once i lose weight?
I think this is a funny topic. I'll tell you why my wife is perfect example in the last 6 years I have been married to her she has managed to keep me alienated from people outside my house cause of her own insecurities, not to blame her completely. ( as some of you know I have been sick for the last 4 years and almost died.) When I married her I had to drop all my friends. The girls cause she hated them and most of my guy friends cause they had hot girlfriends. My wife wasn't skinny when I met her but has put on about a 100 lbs since we got married and she hates all women it's kinda funny she can find something wrong with any women within 2 seconds of seeing them. (Kim kardashian, Selma hayek, Scarlett Johansson, they are all ugly) long story short the only friend I have from before I was married is a women that plays pro football. There isn't anything wrong with my friend she is a little older than me and about 6 inches taller so my wife don't feel threatened buy her. In fact she is my kids godmother lol. I have found that women can be very jealous so maybe it isn't that you have changed it's just you have become a threat to them in some way. No matter what you have to be you. If people can't except that then they deserve your friendship to begin with. I have also tried to live by this and I admit that it hasn't made me the most popular person but the friends I have had in my life were fiercely loyal and wanted to be around me. Doing things to please everyone just makes everyone like you less. (like a certain political figure that it seemed everyone loved now plays both sides on everything and now it seems no one like em.) Just remember no matter " DO YOU"

the key to being successful in losing weight is planing eating and doing things you enjoy. Just do the best you can and never make excuses cause you know if your lying to yourself and it just makes everything worse especially if you start to believe your own lies lol. Doing the best you can on something like interval training is better than taking the easy way out and you be rewarded. I'm totally disabled and still work out everyday when I reach my point I stop but I still did something instead of complaining and doing nothing. so I know you'll figure it out and get er done. Smile

You could do high intensity interval training for a half hour and probably see better results than if you just did a moderate speed for 90 minutes.

To do it, you go as hard and fast as you can for 15 seconds and then at a moderate pace for 45 seconds and repeat that until the 30 min are up. I do this now and I sweat a lot more than I used to just doing the same pace for an hour. There's really no reason to do cardio for more than an hour unless you're training for some kind of endurance event or you just like it.

You should never feel guilty about exercising. Something is better than nothing! You should feel proud of yourself- 30 min 7 times a week is a lot more than a lot of people would be willing to do!

skinnygirl is correct. Your trying to get your heart rate up and incline does this effectively. Even better would be to do interval training. 3 min in your fat burning target haert rate then 1 min above it and repeat cycle. I'll go at a good pace with hear rate about 140- 150 for 3 min then shoot it up to 160- 175 for a min. Cardio is only effective if you do at least 20 min and loses effectiveness after you hit 45- 50 min. so do 6- 10 cycles and a 4- 5 min cool down and you should be good.

Diet Snobbery- Anyone else notice this?

Generally speaking, it's great when you find what works for you and use it. Unfortunately, just because something works for one section of the population does not in any way mean it works for every section of the population. There are too many variables, too many differences, whether it is through body structure, health conditions, metabolism, etc.
You can be right for you, but it is naive to believe because you found what works for you that you have definitive answers for everyone.

actually it does work for most of the population cause the point is it speeds up your metabolism. And as far as health conditions you do what you can do and adjust you intake accordingly. I'm 100% disabled and i still figure out ways to work around what I'm unable to do.
